A tweet with a link to an article on this site was posted on Twitter on Aug 23, 2013. Donald J. Trump "liked" the tweet in 2013. The original owners of this domain stopped using it in 2016, so the link was broken for about 3 years. Seeing this unique opportunity, I acquired this site on Jan 1, 2019. As the site owner, I've been able to change the share image and text for this site as I please, which affected what appeared on trump's own likes page.
Sadly, on May 12, 2020, someone figured out a way for Trump to unlike the tweet. As of this date, he has nothing on his likes page. It was fun while it lasted!
Why didn't trump unlike the tweet sooner? I'm guessing the person who wrote the original tweet blocked Trump at some point. If so, Trump couldn't see the tweet he liked on his own likes page, so there was no way for him to unlike it!
On January 8, 2021, Trump was permanently banned from Twitter after inciting an insurrection on our nation's Capital.
This site was once the home of an amusing article entitled "Donald Trump issues statement on Ted Cruz birth certificate".
The article was written by one of the founders of the original version of this site on August 19th, 2013. At the time, they described themselves as "Twitter's most essential comedy newspaper". They have asked that their content not be included here any more. Their article suggested that, following the release of Ted Cruz's birth certificate, Donald Trump issued a statement which supposedly read...
"It took great courage for Senator Rafael Cruz to come forward today and reveal voluntarily that he is actually a citizen of Canada. This is the kind of courage that runs in the Cruz family. His dad did, after all, fight with Castro during the Communist revolution in his native Cuba, before taking his new wife to a socialist Canadian hospital to give birth to Rafael, Jr.
As my gazillions of adoring Twitter fans know, I encourage everyone to embrace their heritage. Whether it's Jon Stewart, Ted Cruz, or even the rest of the Drumpf family. (Sorry kids, Trump's just a name granddaddy Drumpf made up.)
Rafael "Ted" Cruz is just the kind of politician Canada needs right now. I encourage him to head north immediately to defund the Canadian healthcare system and start fracking the bejesus out of the land of the "True North Strong and Free."
I commend Ted Cruz for his leadership, his commitment to building a stronger Canada, and above all his thick and lustrous hair.
I wish him the very best in his future endeavors."
An article on this site was shared on Twitter on Aug 23, 2013. Donald Trump subsequently "liked" the tweet. These memes have appeared on Trump's "likes" page between January 1, 2019 and May 12, 2020, courtesy of this site. Sadly, his people found a way for him to unlike the tweet on May 12, 2020, 497 days after I started using it to mock him.
I still control the share image on the original tweet, but since trump found a way to unlike it, it no longer appears on his likes. (Update: As of 1/9/21, trump was banned from twitter.)
This is NOT what trump actually said. This would have actually been helpful. What he said instead was the opposite of helpful.
Flynn indicted for lying to the FBI, but trump likes it! (He subsequently pardoned Flynn in Dec 2020.)
Innocent, but unwilling to cooperate.
Lying trump said 15 cases would go to zero. As of the end of 2020, there have been over 350,000 deaths.
Trump takes absolutely no responsibility!
Return of this site: 2019-2020
I made a deal with the owner of the domain and reopened this site on January 1, 2019. It's been a blast being able to have our memes show up on the "likes" tab of Donald J. Trump's Twitter page. Someone finally found a way for trump to unlike the tweet on May 12, 2020, so our memes stopped showing up on his likes page that day. (Trump was banned from Twitter on January 8, 2021.)
Site down: 2016-2018
This site was down from 2016 through the end of 2018.
Original years: 2013-2016
The site was described as follows:
We are an informal collective of liberally-leaning, humor-focused political content creators on the internet.
The collective began in 2013, when the four founding members, Tea Party Cat, [withheld], Liberal Bias, and The Lipstick Liberal formed an alliance based on a common purpose: to use smart and incisive humor to both entertain and educate people about current news and politics, and promote a liberal political agenda. Each had their own style, approach, and favorite topics; however, they also had a common vision: using social media and a lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek approach to political issues to reach the hearts and minds of progressives and independent thinkers interested in politics and social issues.
WinkProgress.com was launched in June 2013 as a unified portal where people could come to find content from a variety of sources that shares this unified style and purpose: using humor to educate and promote the progressive agenda.
CatsAgainstTrump are a bunch of cat-loving people who can't stand Trump. We connect with like minded individuals and share cute cat pictures in attempts to quell the stress of trump's disaster of a presidency.
Join us for our weekly Cats Against Trump FBRParty every Thursday. (They run straight through to Caturday!)
Look for posts with the hashtag #CatsAgainstTrump.
It's helpful to connect with fellow resisters on Twitter. Here's a few tips for doing so.
There's a daily follow limit. As explained by Twitter:
Every Twitter account is technically unable to follow more than 400 accounts per day, in addition to the account-based limits above. Please note that this is just a technical limit to prevent egregious abuse from spam accounts. (This was lowered from 1000 to 400 in April 2019.)
There's a 5,000 overall follow limit until you reach 5,000 followers. Here's Twitter's explanation:
Every account can follow 5,000 accounts total. Once you've followed 5,000 accounts, there are limits to the number of additional accounts you can follow. This number is different for each account and is based on your ratio of followers to following; this ratio is not published. Follow limits cannot be lifted by Twitter and everyone is subject to limits, even high profile and API accounts.
You need 5,000 followers in order to start following more than 5,000. Then, you can only follow 10% more than follow you. So, when you reach 5,000 followers, you can then follow 5,500.
Accounts are also prohibited from aggressively following other accounts.
