"The Daily Show" is unveiling the Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library in Manhattan this weekend -- but it won't last long.
The pop-up exhibit will be at 3 West 57th Street in Manhattan, not far from Trump Tower, Comedy Central announced Tuesday.
"Donald Trump is basically running the entire country with his thumbs," host Trevor Noah told his audience Monday in announcing the library, "We have to make sure these tweets are collected in a setting that they deserve, a place where every American can come and appreciate them.”
The president is famous for his use of Twitter, which he says helps him communicate directly with the American people. He often uses the social media platform to blast critics and respond to major global events.
It will feature some of the president's better known one-shots, organized around such categories as "SAD! A Retrospective" and "The Commander-In-Tweet." The "Daily Show" will highlight Trump's insults and contradictions and allow "verified survivors" to remember being on the receiving end of his social media outbursts.
"Donald Trump's tweets are official presidential statements," Noah said. "That's why last week the U.S. military bombed 'Covfefe,' which is actually a small town in Somalia. We thought it was a joke,” he quipped.
The exhibit runs Friday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is free.
