Horror movies just got a whole lot scarier with the addition of Donald Trump for the hashtag #TrumpAHorrorMovie. The hashtag took off and quickly became a trending topic as a part of The Huffington Post's weekly hashtag game "Stupor Tuesday." This summer, Twitter users reimagined The Donald as a movie critic explaining movie plots as only the GOP nominee can with the hashtag #TrumpExplainsMoviePlots. In the spirit of Halloween, here are some of the Trumpified horror movies.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Trump’s relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin has been a point of criticism this entire election. Putin has praised Trump and the GOP nominee has reciprocated the love. Last week Hillary Clinton made fun of Trump and Putin (Trumptin? Pump?), saying, “Donald really is as healthy as a horse. You know, the one Vladimir Putin rides around on."
For the second presidential debate many pointed out, and by pointed out I mean endlessly made fun of, how Trump was lurking behind Clinton.
Silence of the Lambs
In the final debate between Trump and Clinton, Trump made history by speaking Spanish at the debate when he used the term “bad hombre.” Trump was talking about the “bad dudes” reportedly getting into the U.S. through the U.S. Mexico border. Trump reiterated his plans for a wall to put an end to this.

Though it may seem like ages ago, Trump attacked a Gold Star family (meaning they lost a family member in the Armed Forces during wartime) this summer after the Democratic National Convention. Khizr Khan and Ghazala Khan, parents of United States Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed in the Iraq war, spoke out against Trump and his proposed Muslim ban—only to have Trump fire back more than once. People were disgusted when Trump compared his sacrifices to that of the fallen Khan, and were disgusted once more when Trump suggested Ghazala wasn’t allowed to speak because of her religion.
Orange you glad we explained those tweets? These other ones are self-explanatory.
