SNL writer responds to Trump’s tweets like they’re text messages

Donald Trump’s tweets are terrifying. But if you come to accept the fact that we’re all doomed, there’s plenty of comedic material to be drawn from them. That’s what SNL writer Josh Patten is doing, but it’s not the usual form of mockery that Trump’s tweets elicit so well.

This Sunday, Patten announced his new, “incredibly stupid project” on Twitter, where he casually responds to the President’s tweets like they’re text messages. There’s no punchline — it just looks like a text conversation where one party is enthusiastic and dramatic and the other is vaguely interested.

Some might not agree, but I think it’s genius.

Below are a few samplings:
