Trump headlines make more sense now that he’s a ‘Florida Man’

We reworked a few of his more shocking headlines to prove our point.
November 1, 2019

News broke on Thursday night that President Donald Trump, a lifelong New Yorker, has filed a “declaration of domicile” in Florida, last month, officially making him a “Florida Man.” 

In 2013, the Florida Man account was launched on Twitter, taking real headlines that described uniquely bizarre and (mostly) hilarious crimes, all of which include “Florida Man” in the headline. The account took off and now the Florida Man has become a canonized part of American internet culture.

Looking back on the last few decades, Trump’s actions make a whole lot more sense now that he’s a Florida Man. To show you how, we reworked some of his most shocking and surprising headlines, to honor his new identity.
