Internet erupts in bewilderment and mockery after Trump randomly declares himself ‘Mr. Brexit’
Just when you thought Brexit was out of the news as Great Britain struggled to figure out what to do, across the pond, Donald Trump declared himself the king of Brexit, and the internet lost their minds.
They will soon be calling me MR. BREXIT!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 18, 2016
People aren’t exactly sure what the random bizarre tweet meant. Is Trump leaving? Will he stage his own exit? Is he trying to destroy the United States and break up the country like the European Union? Or is he just inspired by Mr. Robot and coming up with his own spinoff?
Twitter has a lot of theories:

I know Mr. Robot is all the rage these days but the Mr. Brexit spinoff seems a bit excessive.

As far as supervillain names go Mr Brexit is a pretty good fit for an orange mutant powered by xenophobia and misinformation

So if the Hairdo is calling himself Mr. Brexit now, does that mean he'll leave the country if we vote against him? Asking for a friend.

Trump says that soon we'll be calling him MR BREXIT. I guess he means like how the guy behind Brexit couldn't do the job and now a woman is.

Donald Trump (aka Mr. Brexit) is fooling people into voting him and they'll regret it. Those who don't learn from history will repeat it.
