‘You Can Find it On Grindr’: Twitter Can’t Stop Laughing at Trump’s Tweet About ‘EASY D’
As he complained about the block on his executive orders again today, President Trump tweeted something that currently has Twitter aflutter with giggles and snickering.
Trump’s immigration-restrictions were blocked by a federal judge late last week, and a speech he gave earlier today suggests that the challenge to his controversial policy is still a sore spot for him. As Trump tends to do, the president decided to get back on the Twitter machine to complain:
Big increase in traffic into our country from certain areas, while our people are far more vulnerable, as we wait for what should be EASY D!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 8, 2017
While “EASY D” probably refers to an “easy decision” for his order to win its judicial appeal, the last two words of Trump’s tweet have already become a major point of mockery across the Twittersphere.
Some people were just bemused and came up with their own jokes:

Others thought Trump might’ve been trying to get in touch with his West Coast gangsta rap side:

Someone is missing lunch while earnestly pounding out “Why All Your Easy D Jokes Play Right Into Trump’s Hands.” Condolences to that guy.

Please, please someone ask Sean Spicer what Trump meant by “easy D,” just for the inevitable SNL parody.
