No, A Little Girl Didn't Tell Donald Trump He Was "A Disgrace To The World"

Yep, it's fake news.

Posted on

A short clip has gone viral on Twitter, showing a young girl telling "Donald Trump" he's a "disgrace to the world" before snapping a photo.

The clip has over 96,000 retweets and over 140,000 likes... however, the "Donald Trump" in the video is actually an impersonator.

Yep, it's fake news.

Really, it's Anthony Atamanuik. In the past, Atamanuik has worked on shows including 30 Rock and Broad City, and he currently stars as Trump in The President Show.

It's Atamanuik's impression of Trump that has people cheering, as they believe they are witnessing the US President getting served by a child. Here's the long version of the now viral clip people have been sharing.

The president greets the Tax Day protesters, and the crowd LOVES him. Huge! https://t.co/KJ41qK2OEJ

Plenty of people loved the clip, and perhaps RT'd a tad too quickly, believing it to be the real deal. Here's Rosie O'Donnell.

Of course, some knew immediately just what was going on.

@najahtaa That isn't Trump- it's an actor who is very good at playing Trump.

@najahtaa obviously this is from that show on Comedy Centeal. The real trump would never want to be that close to a Black person.

@najahtaa @huskydusty that’s not even donald trump.

To his credit, Atamanuik fessed up to being the "Trump" in the video well before it went fully viral.

@najahtaa I'm the guy playing Trump from the @PresidentShow and that little girl was brave, funny and smart. Also,… https://t.co/2l7EPIljaP
