Donald Trump’s tweets being read by the Joker is pretty sinister

We could smack our heads against our desks every time the President-elect tweets, or we could laugh in the face of fear with a little help from Mark Hamill.

Inspired by writer and actor Matt Oswall’s tweet regarding Trump’s weird New Year tweet, Hamill reprised his role as the Joker from Batman: The Animated Series to dub over the last 140 Trump characters of 2016.

The Star Wars actor admitted that “nobody writes better super-villain dialogue than #Trumputin”.

Hamill then uploaded his first dub as #TheTrumpster:

It’s not the first time someone has had the idea – Billy West who voiced Zapp Brannigan in Futurama has been dubbing Trump’s Twitter activity under #MakeAmericaBrannigan for a couple of months. His voice-overs are equal in hilarity and despair that Trump’s words fit perfectly as an idiotic character from a TV show (which he was).  

Here’s hoping for more momentary distractions from the next four years.
