Trump Demands Facebook Investigate Why Obama's Post Got So Many Likes

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—A furious Donald J. Trump has demanded that Facebook investigate why a status update posted by former President Barack Obama on Monday has received so many likes.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday morning, Trump said that the more than eight hundred and fifty thousand likes that Obama’s post had garnered as of Tuesday night were “phony,” and called the seeming popularity of the post a “rigged hoax.”

“There is absolutely no way that eight hundred and fifty thousand people liked Obama’s post,” he said. “I know a lot of people, and absolutely none of them like Obama.”

Trump said that, in addition to investigating Obama’s likes, he was demanding that Facebook remove several hundred thousand of Obama’s likes and “give them to me instead.”

5. Ha! I totally believed this was a legitimate headline.

He is so petty and pathetic, I'm sure he could actually confront Facebook over something like this.

7. It's so sad that for a second I read the headline and thought it was true.


That's all you need to know about Trump. Satire and reality are merged together.
