After Sending America Into Freefall, Trump Watched Finding Dory
Over the weekend, that reality-TV gameshow host who won the presidency last year instituted a Muslim Ban, which “unleashed global chaos.” As people worried about whether they’d be able to return home or see their family members again, Donald Trump, the leader of the free world, hosted a screening of Finding Dory, a movie about “a foreigner entering the U.S. without authorization to reunite with her parents,” writes Chris Lu.
And, wow, this guy Trump is really something, huh?
Because millions of Americans spent the weekend living in fear at what this new foreign policy means for the republic, some took solace in making fun of the president. Here are some of the best tweets:
He just likes the pretty colors.
Odd that Trump is watching Finding Dory today, a movie about reuniting with family when he's preventing it in real life.— Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks) January 29, 2017
Every president should start with All the President's Men.
FUN FACT: the first movie that Jimmy Carter screened in the White House was ALL THE PRESIDENT'S MEN. Trump's first movie: FINDING DORY— priscilla page (@BBW_BFF) January 29, 2017
Probably wishes he was watching a Minion movie.
Iâ€™m sure Trump, a man who seems utterly incapable of experiencing mirth or joy, enjoyed FINDING DORY this afternoon— Patrick Monahan (@pattymo) January 29, 2017
He can google?

Everything is fine.
As Muslim Ban protests erupt nationwide and outside White House, Trump holds private screening of "Finding Dory." Not joking.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) January 29, 2017
I appreciate this.
