When he's not too busy dismantling democracy, the President of the United States just keeps giving us easy ways to troll him. An insider leaked a photo of a bookshelf in the White House's Old State Department Library to MSNBC's Chris Hayes and it's gone viral on Twitter. You can see why. The mostly-empty bookshelf is basically the perfect, tragic metaphor for our current administration:
"Notice the books," he wrote, ominously. Let's take a closer look:
To start with, there are eight books on this shelf, some of them duplicate copies, so realistically there are five books on this shelf. We haven't seen this much empty space since Trump's inauguration. Also, ICYMI: every single one of these books was written either by or about Donald Trump.
As many have been quick to point out:
This would not be shocking given that Trump seems to hate words (unless they're praising him), facts (which many books contain) and spines (he doesn't have one).
Twitter had a lot to say about it—in fact, if you printed out the tweets about this bookshelf, you could probably fill up the bookshelf:
Yes, it is, lol.
Why yes. Yes it is.
