Twinks4Trump Creator Asks: “How Do You Troll The Master Troll?”

by Dan Tracer March 08, 2016

At some point in the not-so-distant future, Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential bid will be taught in sociology classes as an exploration into media manipulation, authoritarianism and the “reality TV” effect on American culture.

Unless, of course, the bloviating, walking ego-trip manages to win, in which case God help us all.

Trump Circus is undeniably captivating to watch — he is arguably the biggest troll on the planet (just narrowly beating Kanye West), saying and doing whatever he knows will land him on front pages.

Which led Cody Permenter, a gay 24-year-old who works in social media in Seattle, to ponder: “How do you troll the master troll?”

Well here’s one way: go to www.loser.com and see what pops up. We’ll wait.

Permenter took a different rout, and Twinks4Trump was born.

The concept it pretty simple: Trump is #Daddy, and the twinks just can’t get enough of him.

If that sounds crass, offensive and borderline inappropriate, that’s because it is all three. And that’s the idea.

Permenter told NY Mag:

It’s bringing a level of absurdity to the election that can match Donald Trump’s absurdity, and having fun with it. I’m not naïve, I know that this election will have a lot of consequences for a lot of people, and some of those won’t be so good depending on who wins, but I think that we shouldn’t lose our ability to have fun and to laugh at it.

On how the satirical account has been received:

It’s definitely been more liberal criticism than conservative criticism, I would say. But this is not a large amount of criticism. Most people understand the joke.

The cherry atop the absurdity sundae is that some Trump supporters are actually kind of into it — similar to how this video meant to mock Trump supporters was embraced by the same lot.

He added:

What’s most intriguing to me are people who are actually gay GOP members who are following the account and having a good laugh with it.
