Trump Appears To Be Fooled By Parody Account Claiming To Be His Sister Offering Him Praise, Real Sister Now Says She’s “Annoyed”

If there’s anything we’ve learned over the past four years, it’s that Donald Trump is pretty damn dumb. I mean, seriously, the guy is not hard to fool at all. Especially when it comes to his Twitter account, which I’m convinced he just blindly jabs at with his fat thumbs all day long with a complete disregard for what he’s hitting.

On more occasions than I can count, the guy has retweeted some random post that’s singing his praises, only for us to soon find out that either the tweet didn’t mean what he thought it meant, or the account was fake or a parody. Frankly, it’s just not an uncommon event when it comes to Donald Trump. But this particular instance in question today is made a little bit more hilarious, being that the parody account that he retweeted was posing as his sister — who is rather aggravated with the whole ordeal.

The outgoing president retweeted an article from the ultra-right-wing website, according to VICE News. Contained in the article was praise for Donald’s older sister Elizabeth Trump Grau for “breaking years of carefully-guarded silence to step forward and vociferously defend Trump.”

However, the Twitter account that supposedly belonged to Trump’s sibling and sang all of Donald’s praises didn’t actually belong to the real Elizabeth Trump Grau at all. It was a parody account — and the real-life Trump Grau is evidently over it already.

Grau told VICE News when contacted for comments today, “I’m trying to delete it. I don’t even belong to Twitter.”

Trump’s real sister said she has nothing more to say on the matter, she is “just annoyed by this whole thing.”

VICE News reported that the account was established in November and sent out its first MAGA-loving tweet on Wednesday. In a very short amount of time, the account’s page was full of loving tweets of admiration for the outgoing president.

The following thread breaks the whole situation down a little more clearly:

Look, Donald. You’ve already embarrassed yourself enough as it is. Maybe take just half a second to check what you’re retweeting, huh?
