Jokes that are strangely both funny and 'tremendously' sad cannot be far behind as long as Donald J Trump is in the picture.
The human-cheeto who passes off as the Republican presidential nominee because the world is dark and full of terrors has spawned a fabulous set of new jokes. And a hashtag trend that should never, ever die down.
While lampooning Hillary Clinton for nothing in particular at the second Presidential debate in St Louis on 9 October, Trump tried to explain his proposal to ban Muslims from entering America. Oh, apologies. We mean when he asked for"extreme vetting" of immigrants.
While talking about immigration, the influx of refugees from conflict zones like Syria, Trump couldn't stop himself from saying that the refugees could prove to be America's "Trojan horse." Which is probably code for, "I have xenophobic fans".
His comments were met with much disgust from Clinton: "We are a country founded on religious freedom and liberty. How do we do what [Trump] has advocated without causing great distress within our country? Are we going to have religious tests when people fly into our country?" she asked.
This obviously led to the issue that plagues Trump just as terribly as his fake tan does: Islamophobia.
Muslims, according to Trump, must "report when they see something going on." Because he obviously thinks that members of the community usually stand by and applaud suspicious activities instead of RSS&feedName=topNews">actively preventing incidents by reporting them.
Obviously, Trump's massively ignorant comments have given birth to #MuslimsReportStuff. A hashtag that is winning at life.
