Donald Trump is turning 73 years old on June 14. Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah is honoring that by bringing its traveling Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library to Washington, D.C. The pop-up exhibit pays tongue-in-cheek tribute to all the ways Trump has used the social network to express his strong opinions.

The installation will run from June 14 to June 16 at The Showroom, an event space just down the street from the White House. It also features a new addition commending the First Lady on her own work. “Melania’s biggest initiative is to combat cyberbullying,” says Ramin Hedayati, a supervising producer with The Daily Show’s digital expansion team. “We’ve created an exhibit that honors that effort, and then also shows some examples of the kind of bullying online that she would want to address.”

You don’t need to be an FBI investigator to figure out that the tweets come from Trump’s own account. “We’ve redacted the perpetrator’s identity in the hope that they will change their ways in the future and not be linked forever to these regrettable tweets,” says Hedayati.........
