#TrumpBookReport Is the Feel-Good Post-Debate Viral Hashtag We Needed

We take a look at the phenomena of Trumpian style summaries of famous novels and their characters.
When Republican presidential nominee opens his mouth, two things emerge: bile and confusion. The first, his brutishness, can be summed up with his uttered growl “such a nasty woman” as Hillary Clinton fielded a question from moderator Chris Wallace at the third and final (thank god) presidential debate. The second, his absence of grammar, sends copy-editors into a frenzy of scalp massages, but Clinton has enough discipline to stay quiet, content to allow Trump to wrap himself in his own forked tongue. To see what I mean, try to parse out this example plucked from the transcript of the debate :

We don’t know who the rebels are. We’re giving them lots of money, lots of everything. We don’t know who the rebels are. And when and if — and it’s not going to happen, because you have Russia and you have Iran now. But if they ever did overthrow Assad, you might end up with — as bad as Assad is, and he’s a bad guy, but you may very well end up with worse than Assad.

Trump’s labyrinthine language wasn’t lost on the Twitterverse, among them a St. Louis alderman and mayoral candidate Antonio French who tweeted:

Trump’s foreign policy answers sound like a book report from a teenager who hasn’t read the book. “Oh, the grapes! They had so much wrath!”

Twitter users ate it up, and within hours, the hashtag #trumpbookreport (as well as #trumpbookreports)was born. The hashtag speaks for itself—Trump’s takes on famous books. Here are some of our favorites:

Mrs. Dalloway? I have no idea who she is. Never met her. #TrumpBookReports
