Parody account says 'Trump loves watching Gorillas', Twitter totally buys it

Someone tweeted a fake excerpt 'from' Michael Wolff's controversial book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, and Twitter chose to believe it

At this point, if someone comes up to you and says ‘Trump believes in Unicorns and has a secret room where he worships them’, you’d actually believe it. That’s how eccentric Trump is. So naturally, when a Twitter account tweeted out a fake excerpt apparently from Michael Wolff’s controversial book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Twitter chose to believe it!

The tweet claimed that President Trump loves gorillas and (in his own head) was under the impression that there is an entire channel dedicated to gorillas. The White House staff apparently had to make a TV channel dedicated to the animals fighting each other. The tweet got thousands of likes and RTs with some people actually believing it!

The Twitter account had to later announce, albeit with a hint of sarcasm, that the tweet is in fact just a joke:

Because the explanation wasn’t enough, the account admin had to literally change the page name to ‘the gorilla channel thing is a joke’.  Even though the entire thing was a joke, Twitter had a field day ridiculing their favorite meme, Donald Trump. Here’s what they said:

Just the fact that people actually believed this shows how gullible we are… but then again it’s Trump, so… never mind!
