ET, WWE or Mini Me? Twitter explodes with reactions to Donald Trump’s ‘epic’ convention entrance
The Twitter community climaxed when the presidential hopeful, who already tops the list of most bizarre politicians, entered the RNC the way not many movie stars can enter Oscars – cloaked in smoke, with a spooky bluish backlight, and to a timeless single by the Queen.
Some quickly spotted a resemblance to Hollywood-style UFO appearances…

To be fair Trump plagiarised his entrance from Close Encounters of the Third Kind as well... pic.twitter.com/zcGss8VYoj— Wolf Cocklin (@wolfcat) July 19, 2016
… while others said Trump had copied World Wrestling Entertainment champions.

Many toyed with the idea that instead of running for President, Trump secretly cherishes a dream of becoming a pop-star...

Was Trump's entrance meant to look like the apocalyptic nightmare from John Carpenter's PRINCE OF DARKNESS? pic.twitter.com/ZiZlBXBVFs— kindertrauma (@kindertrauma) July 19, 2016
Some noted that the music background, ‘We are the Champions’ written by Freddy Mercury, was perhaps not very Trump-style…
And an overwhelming majority said that even for someone like The Donald, it will be hard to top such an “epic and totally awesome”, “spectacular”, “Beyonce-concert” appearance.
I gotta say, I do have a degree of curiosity on how Trump will top this entrance: pic.twitter.com/5JudNHJECG— Reuental_800 (@MAurelius161180) July 19, 2016
In any case, it’s fair to say despite all the mockery Trump entertained quite a few, not that it’s his style to pave the way to the White House… Or is it?
