As soon as the news broke that U.S. forces had killed Osama Bin Laden, the first thing on many Twitter users’ minds was … Donald Trump?
That’s right, many tweeters took to the social media site to take jabs at the Celebrity Apprentice star, who has in recent months been attacking President Obama, who announced the news late Sunday night. (Celebrity Apprentice was pre-empted Sunday night for the announcement.)
Trump has been questioning Obama’s birth certificate as well as his grades, and scores of people tweeted the line “BREAKING NEWS: Donald Trump demands Osama Bin Laden’s death certificate” (or some variation of that).
A sampling of other tweets:
“Sunday May 1st ~ Barack Obama announces that he has had Osama Bin Laden killed. Donald Trump announces he is firing the playboy bunny.” — Andrea Tappen, in reference to Celebrity Apprentice contestant and Playmate Hope Dworaczyk.
“How pissed is Donald Trump that this Osama Bin Laden announcement interrupted ‘Celebrity Apprentice’?” — Travis David Suhr
“Fri – Obama gives order to kill Osama Bin Laden, Sat Obama rejoices by kicking Donald Trump’s ass” — James Duncan
“Donald Trump is the GOP front runner and Osama bin Laden is dead. 2012 looking pretty good for President Obama tonight.” — Danny Howard
“Osama dies and obama announces it. sorry donald trump, obama has another 4 years.” — Adrian Sado
“Osama is dead under the Obama Administration and he roasted the hell out of Donald Trump the other night. How is he NOT the man right now?” — John McCray
“First Donald Trump and now Osama Bin Laden? If I were on Obama’s shit list I’d be pretty fucking worried this week.” — Kieran Healy
