Trump Is Big Boss is a silly little program that randomly generates fake tweet screenshots that attribute quotes from Metal Gear's Big Boss to Donald Trump. It also generates a fake-alarmist-reaction tweet with a deliberately broken tweet link to make it look like he's deleted his outrageous comment.
- One of my colleagues suggested that some of Trump's more unhinged tweets sounded just like Big Boss' lines from the english translation of Metal Gear on the MSX.
- I had already built the framework for producing Twitter bots and knew the secret to forking your own projects on Github.
- I had a little more spare time.
- The bot can be seen in action here.
- If you want to spin up your own version, the code is available here.
Here's some of the best tweets and reactions it's come up with so far.
It even went a bit self-aware and meta at one point.
