U.S. presidents usually have to wait until after they're out of office before getting their presidential libraries. But visitors to San Francisco's Clusterfest this weekend got to see at least one version of a Donald Trump presidential library.
The folks at Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" brought their The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library to the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium following stints in New York City and Chicago.
The library was one of five interactive attractions at the second annual three-day comedy and music festival. Exhibits at the library included a memorial to "deleted but not forgotten" tweets by the president, a wall of "verified survivors" of President Trump's Twitter battles and a map of countries the president has tweeted about.
The main attraction inside the library was a replica Oval Office featuring a golden toilet where visitors were presented a crisis situation and given 30 seconds to tweet about it.
“It’s a reminder of how absolutely ridiculous this president is," said Tina Suca, who was attending her second Clusterfest. "It's my favorite festival. I laughed so hard last night, my face hurt.”
The festival featured numerous marquee comedy acts including Jon Stewart, Amy Schumer, The Lonely Island, Trevor Noah, John Mulaney, Tiffany Haddish and many others.
There were five themed interactive attractions spread across the festival, including the Trump Twitter library. The other four were all based off of beloved television shows: a county fair based off of Comedy Central's "South Park," a chance to relive Nickelodeon's "Double Dare" show from the 1980s and 1990s, a recreation of Paddy's Pud from FX's "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," and a Bluth's Frozen Banana Stand from the Netflix's "Arrested Development."
