Though he usually spends his weekends playing golf and tweeting out incoherent babble, President Donald Trump took to Twitter Saturday morning to say that he had just finished reading his son Donald Trump Jr’s new book, which is entitled Triggered:
Just finished reading my son Donald’s just out new book, “Triggered.” It is really good! He, along with many of us, was very unfairly treated. But we all fight back, and we always win!

First of all, there have been multiple reports that Trump doesn’t read. He reportedly doesn’t even read intelligence reports and instead gets his briefs with lots of pictures and graphics.
So it should come as no surprise that people weren’t buying Trump’s assertion that he had “read” anything. Take a look at some of the best responses:
You don’t read, and he didn’t write the book.

How about you read the constitution.
Or get an adult to read it to you.

I understand you like picture books since whole sentences are difficult for you.

I doubt you read anything above a third grade reading level. Try this book, more on your level. pic.twitter.com/m8mTKFQZmN

Sure sure sure. Jr didn’t even read it. Ghost writer followed him around for a week and put his gibberish in paragraph form.

I just finished inventing a new type of Unicorn that can read my thoughts and fly me to Jupiter where I’m the King and all my subjects are made from peanut-butter and jelly that tastes just like Christmas and I’m the very best basketball player.

So Donald Trump read a book? Yeah, and a flying pig just dropped off a basket filled with baby dinosaurs at my house.
