A Trump supporter is catfishing thousands of people using Madison Beer’s pictures and it’s funny as fuck
‘I love President Trump, he makes me feel so patriotic about our country’
by Katie Way
As any loyal MTV viewer knows, there's more than one way to catfish — it's not always about tricking someone into a long-distance relationship. And unless you consider the bond between someone desperate for internet fame and a bunch of gullible losers to be romantic, this is one of those special, platonic catfish cases.
Photographs of musician (?)/professional hot girl Madison Beer are being used to bolster the online presence of pro-Trump account @TheRoyalPosts, and the result is fucking hilarious.

Despite the fact that reverse image search exists (thank you again, Nev and Max) the fake account has managed to pull almost 42,000 followers with a combination of generic, pro-Trump rhetoric and stolen images and videos of Beer like these:

The last tweet is especially implausible, because Donald Trump definitely does not know how to correctly address and mail a package.
The account also loves to paint the beautiful brunette who supposedly runs it as a martyr, constantly harassed because she's a Trump supporter in liberal Hollywood.
Twitter just emailed me to tell me they are removing my "verified badge" because they claim my account "doesn't comply with Twitter's guidelines for verified accounts."
Translation: I'm a conservative.

I got kicked out of Disneyland for waving my MAGA flag! 😡
They gave me a refund but the manager said the flag was offensive to other park-goers!
I’m not coming back ever again!!!

It's a shockingly thin backstory that even involves other fame-adjacent people like Dinah from Fifth Harmony:
How gorgeous is my best friend?
Seriously, I'm so lucky to hangout with her.

In all likelihood, 18-year-old Madison Beer, who went viral after Justin Bieber reposted a video of her singing, is not a fervent Trump supporter, and she's definitely not the person behind the account. It's unclear if she's even aware of the account's existence.
Look who I ran into at the club!

But, according to one of these pictures lifted from the internet, Beer did get to meet Drake "at the club," so at least she's got that going for her.
