Trump TV is back for another episode, but this time a cable news pundit has joined the show. Following the script of Trump's daughter-in-law Lara who launched the web series last week, Kayleigh McEnany spent a few minutes on the president's Facebook page to share all the positive things coming out of the White House this week — and none of the negatives. Some criticized the segment as propaganda, but others took to Twitter just to make light of the show. These Trump TV memes and jokes will distract you from the more frightening aspects of the news channel, if just for a minute.
The minute-long video began with McEnany talking about jobs. She touted the statistic that under President Trump the economy has created one million jobs. But actually that's a rate slower than the last year under President Obama. McEnany didn't mention that.
Instead she moved on to the RAISE Act, which would limit legal immigration and prioritize immigrants that can speak English and meet other "merit-based" criteria. Of course it was billed as a way to improve the economic lot of the American worker. But studies show that increased immigration is actually good for the economy. But you won't see those facts on the "real news." And that's scary to a lot of American citizens. But all I can offer to help are some hilarious Twitter memes and jokes, because at this point, you might just want to take a break and laugh for a second.
1) Some Were Shocked By The Host's New Gig
Few would have guessed that would be her new job.
2) Maybe You're Overreacting
Trump TV..if they run the broadcast station like they run the White House, this is all you'll see pic.twitter.com/RrGzQDAZlv— Lime Green Soda (@Kiddernoggin) August 7, 2017
Assuming there's a signal might be a tad much.
3) Maybe The Number Of Hosts Will Still Grow
Much more amazing than the bizarre fact that there is something out there called Trump TV is the fact that Sean Hannity is not on it.— TheValuesVoter (@TheValuesVoter) August 7, 2017
She needs some Fox friends.
4) Quality Is Not A Huge Concern Yet
It's as much TV as Trump University is an Ivy League School— Loko3 (@Loko3MMA) August 7, 2017
There were at least graphics on this week's episode.
5) Cartoons, Skits, & More To Come
Can Melissa McCarthy play her too?
6) Trump TV Only Has The Best Stories

Their coverage is huge.
7) Who Wouldn't Agree?
Game of Thrones is the common ground.
8) Trump Cooking Channel
I hope Trump TV will have Cooking shows— David McConville (@davidmcconvill4) August 7, 2017
Maybe they can make borscht.
9) The Comparison Is Scary Yet Funny
Just because of the graphics though.
10) Real Housewives Of The White House
Oh let them have their Trump TV. It'll b the first alternate reality show. #TrumpTv— Lucy Ortiz (@HerLaptop112) August 7, 2017
Something needed to fill the gap of The Apprentice.
11) Another Actual Criticism
"Trump TV" Lemmings. Don't trip on the way to the cliff. pic.twitter.com/ECThBZLaa7— AnnCoultersWig (@Zelda_Fitzy) August 7, 2017
12) Presidential Product Placement
"Trump TV, coming to you from Trump tower, on the Trump floor with Trump cameras...I'm wearing a Trump blouse.." https://t.co/iLKapvXnCd— Mr C&D demographic (@MrCsandDs) August 7, 2017
We're living in a government version of the Josie and the Pussycats movie.
13) Throwing That Shade
It's getting rough.
14) The TV Guide Review Is Gonna Be Rough
If you thought Trump University, Trump Vodka, Trump Airline, Trump Steaks, Trump Magazine, etc. were bad, wait until you see Trump TV.— Marie Connor (@thistallawkgirl) August 6, 2017
But people bought all those other things too.
15) Serious Criticism Is Also Needed
Trump TV isn't funny, this is serious— Red T Raccoon (@RedTRaccoon) August 7, 2017
This is the product of an authoritative state who limits free press & is now producing its own media pic.twitter.com/GFaNL1PqB5
It'd be great if we could just sit and laugh. But this is a scary situation the country finds itself in.
16) At Least It's Hard To Find
(THREAD) Trump's "Real News" show—Trump TV—is state-sponsored propaganda like what Kim uses in North Korea. It's vile. RETWEET if you agree. pic.twitter.com/vpD9l41lhy— Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson) August 6, 2017
Luckily it's not on a television dial near you yet. But the fact that it could be is enough. Laugh away and then ponder just how serious this kind of thing could become.
Make sure you stay informed of all the news, not just what Trump wants you to hear.
