Joker Versus Trump: Dawn Of Twitter War
It’s Joker versus Lex Luthor on the Internet! Well, not quite. As we all know, real life supervillain Donald Trump somehow managed to win the Presidency of the United States. Before and after this occurred, Trump was well known to starting Twitter feuds and being thin skinned. It is like a trainwreck; you cannot look look away from his Twitter feed. On New Year’s Day, Trump sent out a tweet that was the definition of being a sore winner.
Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don't know what to do. Love!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 31, 2016
The response from across the Internet was swift and angry. People pointed out that this was a new low for the Donald, as well as setting dangerous precedent for the president-elect. Then, one brave citizen cried into the dark for a savior:
this sounds like something the Joker would say right before releasing a swarm of killer bees into Gotham https://t.co/SyKsCHvyuh

What he got was a Clown Prince of Crime.
Hamill Enters Political Arena
Mark Hamill has been the main voice of the Joker for over 25 years since his star turn on Batman: The Animated Series. He was also loudly against Trump during the 2016 Presidential election. Evidently, Hamill learned about Oswald’s tweet, which stirred an idea in his mind. A week after Trump’s gloating New Years tweet, Hamill posted this creepy recording of the Joker reading the tweet:

Hamill’s recording is terrifying and chilling, and seems to show how insane it is to say such a thing. It also pokes fun at Trump. Trump, notorious for his thin skin, has not responded to the Joker’s mocking reading of his tweets. Instead, he has chosen to pick a fight with Arnold Schwarzenegger over the ratings of Celebrity Apprentice, with the former actor and governor of California responding with more tact and wit than the President Elect could manage.
