31 Times Donald Trump's Face Made Us LOL

"On his first night in the White House, President Trump complained that the TV in his bedroom was broken, because it didn’t have 'the gorilla channel.' Trump seemed to be under the impression that a TV channel existed that screened nothing but gorilla-based content, 24 hours a day,” the fake excerpt reads.

Donald Trump's administration is arguing Michael Wolff's "Fire and Fury" book is full of nothing but lies, and while that remains up for debate, one "excerpt" making the rounds is definitely made up: No, the president does not watch a "gorilla channel."

The term was a top trend on Twitter Friday morning after someone wrote a parody of the many excerpts from Wolff's book that have been floating around the web all week. What was intended to be a joke was taken seriously by a lot of people carelessly retweeting it as Wolff's words.

In fact, Twitter user @pixelatedboat had to change the name of his account to "the gorilla channel thing is a joke," after he originally tweeted the satirical excerpt with, "Wow, this extract from Wolff’s book is a shocking insight into Trump’s mind."

Read the full thing below:

While absolutely ridiculous, we suspect people had no problem believing it was from Wolff's book because Wolff's book is full of ridiculous alleged Trump behavior.

The more laughable gems from "Fire and Fury" include Trump getting bored after the Fourth Amendment while an aide was trying to teach him about the Constitution ("I got as far as the Fourth Amendment before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head," Sam Nunberg allegedly told Wolff.) and Trump being so paranoid of being poisoned he relies on eating McDonald's food because it is generally already premade. Wolff also suggested Trump may only be semi-literate, that the president was just as shocked he won the election as the rest of America, and is so uninformed about politics he didn't even know who former Speaker of the House John Boehner was

In any case, plenty of people fell for the gorilla prank and Trump supporters promptly bashed them, while others thought it was simply amusing and many more are pondered why there isn't a gorilla channel on TV yet.
