The Internet is laughing at US President Donald Trump who apparently mistook Maradona for Madonna!
Find out what’s going on, and what the facts really are!
Maradona : Did Donald Trump Mistake Him For Madonna?
A screenshot of US President Donald Trump’s tweet about Diego Maradona’s death has set the Internet ablaze.
It showed him mistaking the Argentinian footballer for Madonna, the American singer-songwriter.
Very sad to hear about the death of Maradona. A great person. Her music was wonderful. I remember listening to her albums in the early 1980’s. Rest In Peace!
Did Donald Trump Mistaken Maradona For Madonna? Possible, But Not Likely
While the tweet sounds very much like something Donald Trump would write, there is no evidence it was actually posted by the outgoing US President.
Here is what we know so far…
Fact #1 : He Has Been Focused On The Elections And Michael Flynn
Fact #2 : The Tweet Appears To Be Edited
The Donald Trump tweet about Maradona appears to be edited. If you compare that viral tweet with the other two samples above, you will note that :
- his Twitter handle appears to be truncated, instead of under his name
- the tweet lacks a time and date stamp
- it lacks the Twitter for iPhone label
- it seems to have A LOT more retweets, comments and likes than older and more controversial tweets
All of which point to an edited tweet…
With about half a million retweets and comments, you would have expected more screenshots. Yet, that is the only screenshot being shared on the Internet…
Fact #3 : No Media Confirmed The Tweet
Donald Trump has many followers, many of them members of the media who follow him to cover his many ridiculous statements.
Yet no one has actually seen and confirmed that Donald Trump actually posted the tweet. We certainly did not see it.
Fact #4 : Scott Morrison Was Also Victim Of Similar Hoax
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was also a victim of a similar hoax, with a fake tweet on Madonna’s death going viral.
Fact #5 : Many People Are Mistaking Maradona For Madonna
That said, it is definitely not inconceivable for Donald Turmp to mistaken Maradona for Madonna.
After all, many people are posting messages of condolences about Madonna’s premature death…
Yes, many people are mistaking Diego Maradona for Madonna.
So let us be very clear. The Argentinian footballer, Diego Maradona (left) is the one who died. Not the American singer-songwriter, Madonna (right).
