15 Clever 'Trump A Novel' Tweets That Insult Donald Trump's Campaign Using Classic Novels
The glorious end to this election is almost upon us. The candidates have campaigned and debated, and now there are only two weeks until the president is elected. Until the official end of the election season, it can be helpful for those drained by its seemingly never-ending scandals and attacks and horrific gaffes to have a bit of fun. If you had to sum up Donald Trump's campaign by creating a pun with a title of a book, which would you choose? That's exactly what happened when Twitter users made fun of Trump's campaign using #TrumpANovel.
The hashtag is a twist on #TrumpBookReport, which went viral last week, with users explaining classic stories as if they were Trump writing a book report. This time, users went after Trump for everything from his Access Hollywood tape scandal to his appearance, his comments about Mexicans and Muslims, and even his famous plan to build a border wall. The tweets are effective critiques of his views and platforms. They are truly a reminder of all that Trump stands for and why it's so important that he does not get elected.
Below, a compilation of the most clever tweets which both point out the depressing, bizarre, misogynistic, racist, and overall horrible things Trump has said and done during his run for president, but this time with a comedic twist.
1. War And Peace By Leo Tolstoy
Going after one of Trump's most-debated physical features.

Most likely going after Trump's disgusting comments about women.
