Visitors to the Big Apple this weekend could see some of President Donald Trump's best words on display.
Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" announced Tuesday it plans to set up a Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library at 3 W. 57th St., a two-minute walk from Trump Tower.
The exhibit will show some of the president's better-known takes in 140 characters or less, organized around categories such as "SAD! A Retrospective" and "The Commander-In-Tweet."
It also includes videos, interactive exhibits and tweets from Trump that the show considers contradictory. The exhibit also will give "verified survivors" the chance to recall what it was like being on the receiving end of a Trump Twitter insult.
"Here at 'The Daily Show' we see the danger that faces President Trump," Trevor Noah, host of the satirical news show, said in a June 12 episode. "There are forces in Washington that would hide and suppress his all-important Tweets. Well, not on our watch."
The Fake News Media has never been so wrong or so dirty. Purposely incorrect stories and phony sources to meet their agenda of hate. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2017
Well, as predicted, the 9th Circuit did it again - Ruled against the TRAVEL BAN at such a dangerous time in the history of our country. S.C.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2017
2 million more people just dropped out of ObamaCare. It is in a death spiral. Obstructionist Democrats gave up, have no answer = resist!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2017
My daughter, Ivanka, will be on @foxandfriends tomorrow morning. Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 12, 2017
The pop-up exhibit will be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday.
The tribute to Trump and "his historic phone fingers" is free and open to the public, Noah said.
Trump was known for his prolific tweeting prior to his presidential campaign. The president's tweets even prompted a bill proposed Monday in the House of Representatives – the COVFEFE Act, named for Trump's famous Twitter typo – that would ensure the president's Twitter posts be preserved by the National Archives.
