Donald Trump’s ‘Mr. Brexit’ Shocker Gets Mocked on Twitter

GOP presidential candidate gets a new nickname — and a whole lotta punchlines thrown his way

Is Donald Trump by any other name still as sweet a target of social-media mockery?

Apparently, yes.

GOP presidential nominee Trump boldly announced on Thursday that “They will soon be calling me MR. BREXIT!”

Trump didn’t elaborate as to why he will be forever associated with Britain’s exit from the European Union earlier this year, which prompted widespread devastation to the stock market. (The name change could, however, have something to do with the fact that Trump’s campaign recently hired the marketing firm that helped pump up support for the move.)

But while Trump was stingy with details, the Twitterati were happy to supply punchlines for the announcement.

“I know why Trump said he’s going to get called “Mr. Brexit” — He wants to ban Muslims right? So next on his list: British people. Duh,” one wag offered.

“Actually @RealDonaldTrump, we won’t be calling you Mr. Brexit, because we already have a bunch of other far more appropriate names for you,” another said.

“Where are your taxes, Mr Brexit?” another asked.

All fine offerings, but the public needs real answers, not speculation. Maybe somebody should get John Miller on the horn to explain the whole thing.
