Well, that happened.
If you’re still reeling from the third and final (blessed) debate allow me to turn your attention to the Internet, where things are just as mean but at least they aren’t so humorless.
Last night during the debate, Antonio French, an alderman and mayoral candidate from St. Louis, Miss., unwittingly started a viral sensation when he posted the following tweet:
Trump's foreign policy answers sound like a book report from a teenager who hasn't read the book. "Oh, the grapes! They had so much wrath!"
— Antonio French (@AntonioFrench) October 20, 2016
The Twittersphere seized on the notion and quickly began posting more satirical quotes under the hashtag #trumpbookreport.
It didn’t take long for the hashtag to climb the trending charts. Today it’s No. 2 in the U.S. as of 8 a.m. this morning.
So I invite you to take a break from the depressing headlines and catch up on some the most clever #trumpbookreport tweets below. (Just don’t think too hard about the fact that our education system is probably churning out tons of reports just like these).
Gatsby? He says he was great. I don't know. People are saying maybe not so great. I'll make Gatsby great again. #trumpbookreport

If I was in charge, believe me, I'd have a lot more than 22 catches. And they'd be huge catches. The best. #TrumpBookReport
