“Seeking to praise former U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan in a tweet on Sunday, President Donald Trump accidentally ended up drawing attention to a pro-immigration parody account mocking the former ICE chief instead.
‘The Democrats hate this President so much, they’re forgetting about their duty to secure our Border,’ The U.S. leader wrote, appearing to quote from an interview between the real-life Homan and Fox News’ Steve Hilton. ‘Sad but true!’ Trump said in agreement, as he tagged Hilton and the account: @ThomasHomanICE.”
Tom Homan served as Acting Director of ICE from January 30, 2017 to June 29, 2018. Since his retirement from public service he has been a vitriolic defender of Trump’s racist immigration policies in his capacity as a Fox News contributor.
Trump often praises Fox News hosts and contributors on Twitter, these sycophants are an embarrassment to their profession, and they thrive on such compliments.
Trump is the worst president in history, and he’d wouldn’t be much better as a journalist. He’s too lazy to do any research, had he taken the time to click the @ThomasHomanICE account he would have discovered it’s a parody account with less than five thousand followers.
The parody account is run by pro-immigration advocate Domenic Powell, and you can follow this resistor @_vectorist.
It’s taken me years to build up my Twitter feed to almost 20 thousand followers, but if I create a parody account @MikePenceChristianPatriot and tweet “Donald Trump is not a racist and he deserves an NAACP Image Award”, the fucking moron might retweet it to his 62 million followers and almost immediately my parody account would be more popular than my genuine page.
