In the final dark days before the inauguration, we need humor more than ever to make us feel like this political satire is worthy of laughter more so than tears. Some of the best things in this category that the Internet has come up with is #TrumpBookReport and, of course, the Biden memes.
Now, London-based comedian Tiff Stevenson has set up a parody account that imagines what Bridget Jones' diary would sound like if it were written by a tangerine megalomaniac president-elect instead of our ever-relatable Bridget, and it's hysterical.
BRIDGET TRUMP January -An exceptionally bad startDrunk tweeted Assange Calories consumed -6,000 but mainly the hopes & dreams of the poorJanuary 8, 2017
Ugh. Accidentally tweeted wrong person this morning. Worried I may get fired from super important new job!Will flirtatiously shrug it offJanuary 17, 2017

Jan 3rd Must no longer be saddo loser & accept my victory with grace Alcohol units none - VG Pussies grabbed - 4 (post-Christmas)January 8, 2017
Hate dishonest Meryl! Must center myself more. Will ask Pence about appropriate self-help book, possible Eastern-religion-based. Weight-270January 10, 2017
Inauguration Day is purely commercial, cynical enterprise. Matter of supreme indifference to me! That said am v cross at Charlotte ChurchJanuary 10, 2017
Mmmmm. Vladimir Putin, though. Love his wicked dissolute air, while being v. successful & clever Think might wear sexy black suit tomorrowJanuary 15, 2017
Vlad back in office today. I'll be poised, cool, ice queen and remember I'm a president elect & do not need him in order to be completeJanuary 8, 2017
"It's remarkable how little you have to change," Stevenson told Mashable, about how she composes the tweets. "There are so many parallels between Bridget and Donald. They are both utterly consumed with how other people see them and they are constantly chasing after the wrong guy. They share a love of words and exclamation marks too, such as vile!, tremendous!, media!, winning!, stupid!, weak!, smart!, loser!, love!"
One thing they don't have in common, of course, is that we're always rooting for Bridget, even when she has a massive f*ck up, because she's ultimately a caring person that's always striving for self-improvement.
"I think Trump could learn a lot from Bridget because she is likeable and when she makes a mistake she owns it rather than point the finger of blame at others."
