trump is hard to make satire of, cause the shit he sais for real sounds like satire itself.
he's also hard to satire because in his rambling incomplete manner of speaking it's entirely possible that he did say something to this effect!
This is the most babylonbee-like onion headline I've ever seen
Yeah idc for it honestly the onions always been more clever than this but I imagine they’re running out of ideas
Reality is so dumb
honestly, if trump actually said that I would not be surprised
I came here to say this lol. Glad someone else thought the same
I ate it. I ate the onion.
It's completely believable and in character, if paraphrased. The actual wording would've been awful and strange.
I, well, y'know, you hear about these "shootings," right America? And the thing... and the... thing is, the thing about it is that don't you think if there were really, I mean really, let me tell ya folks, if there were really any shootings, don't you think they'd be bigger? Believe me people, if there were really any shootings, and you know we have the best guns in America, don't we folks? The best guns. Don't you think if there were really any shootings, they'd be inspired by me? And let me tell you, believe me, they would be... the biggest, way up at the tippy top, just the best shootings. You wouldn't hear about one, not two little kids no no no, there would be thousands. I tell you, thousands dead. And believe me folks, I don't kid. I do not. Kid.
It does sound like something he would say though ngl
The most unrealistic part is him being able to form a coherent sentence.
Aw man lol that's a good one.
The problem with The Onion and Trump is it's incredibly hard to tell if something is actually said by him or it is satire.
You just know he’s said some shit like this in private before.
I can hear him saying this 100%
“To be faaaaaair” he did say he could shoot someone on _______ street in daylight and get away with it
To be fair, he is 100% right.
Anyone with that amount of money and influence could get away with murder easily
Honestly...it's not totally unbelievable that he would say something like this. I'd definitely have to do some digging before coming to any conclusion.
Hey guys you know that r/atetheonion isn't supposed to be in the comments right
...Honestly sounds like something he'd say, so I wouldn't necessarily be calling out someone for missing that.
Honestly, i wouldnt be surprised if he said that
honestly that probably wouldn’t have been the dumbest thing he’s ever said
What I like about the onion is that it's just barely truth-adjacent. Like to the point where he will probably actually say this within the next 3 months.
this is good. the onion and other folks of that nature and caliber are doing good work
if they start building an ark, you better believe one too
“My mass shootings, would be, the best mass shootings” /s
i love how the onion has no political preference, so it fools both sides equally
I wonder if the butt hurt “what-about....” Trump crowd will slowly go away, or if it’s just something we have to live with now.
To be fair, this 100% sounds like a literal trump quote
In their defence, I almost ate the onion and I'm literally scrolling through the sub.
In my defence, I am very tired
I mean... I feel like this is something that Trump will say now that its floating out there and that the Onion secretly just has somebody writing on payroll that can predict the future.
Yeah well if he was still president, I wouldn't be surprised by the headlines. If Trump was hired byOnion, it would just be a mindfuck
this does belong here but tell me you wouldn't believe that for a second.
Honestly I didn’t immediately think that was satire. It’s exactly the kind of thing he would say
Kinda weird that this is an onion article, it feels really lazy of a title.
Antitrump circlejerk incoming
I first thought this was on r/notTheOnion. Had to read it again
I thought it was true until I saw the sub . I ate the onion.
"It would be a BIG BIG event, to talk about for years, in all of our great America."
I think this is the most convincing onion I’ve ever seen, cus that sounds like something that the self-centered citrus golem would actually say.
It honestly wouldn't surprise me if he said that. The guy has a hard time know when to stfu.
It would be an achievement
Making an onion article on Trump is like making an essay on why Hitler is bad.
It’s stupidly easy to do so.
Yeah, you're right. I think I just assumed they had one.
There were 10 mass shootings in america last weekend.
Trump definitely speaks better than PedoBiden. The libbies sure do worship the racist pedo that refuses have debates without his teleprompter to tell him what to say. What a fucking joke.
who are you arguing with? what is your point?
Are these people truly this inundated inTDS? These people can’t get this mans name out of their mouths. I hadn’t heard Adam’s schiffs name in half a year, then this miscreant comes out and says something about Trump and he’s, yet again, all over MSM.
Uh, you okay bud?
