Trump Is Big Boss

tl;dr

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.

Background

  1. 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.
  2. I had already built the framework for producing Twitter bots and knew the secret to forking your own projects on Github.
  3. I had a little more spare time.

Getting it

Highlights

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.
