THE DAILY SHOW PRESENTS: THE DONALD J. TRUMP PRESIDENTIAL TWITTER LIBRARY
The enormously successful, hugely popular and critically-acclaimed The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library will be on display at Clusterfest. Following its phenomenal debut in New York City, with stops in Chicago and Los Angeles, the San Francisco edition will be so tremendous that those who miss it will be SAD!
Every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has been honored with a meticulously curated memorial library commemorating the documents of historical value crafted during his time as leader of the free world. Continuing this hallowed tradition, and seeing no need to wait for him to leave office, The Daily Show will once again honor the current president with The Daily Show Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, showcasing the Commander in Chief’s preferred vessel for communicating with the public, his Twitter feed.
The library will feature audio/visual installations and a fully interactive experience for hands of all sizes, giving patrons a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to memorialize and celebrate the many “unpresidented” moments of President Trump’s Twitter history.
Select exhibitions housed in the Presidential Twitter Library include:
- THE COMMANDER-IN-TWEET: In the Library’s marquee attraction, attendees will step into a replica of the Oval Office, be presented with a crisis situation, and have 30 seconds to compose a tweet white sitting on a golden toilet, just like the president!
- SAD! A RETROSPECTIVE: A video retrospective will solemnly display a collection of people, places and things that the President has deemed “SAD!”
- TRUMP VS. TRUMP: Here we document President Trump’s unique ability to hold a variety of different opinions on the same subject.
- VERIFIED SURVIVORS: Listen to a series of testimonials from high-profile victims, as they recount the trauma of being attacked by Trump on Twitter.
- DONALD J. TRUMP: A MAN OF CHARACTERS: In a short docufilm narrated by Daily Show correspondent Desi Lydic, the library takes a look at Trump’s Twitter history and the social media platform he made great again.
- MASTERWORKS: Sit back and admire some of Trump’s finest works as a master tweeter.
- TWISTORY IN THE MAKING: DONALD J. TRUMP ON TWITTER: Study the broad arc of Trump’s history in one comprehensive timeline, from his very first tweet about his appearance on Letterman, to his proclamations that Obama was born in Kenya, to his important, early morning screeds as the leader of the free world.
FXX’S IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA: PADDY’S PUB
Some say you haven’t lived until you’ve taken a selfie at the urinal of Paddy’s Pub from FXX’s It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia attraction. “The worst bar in Philadelphia” will be back in Civic Center Plaza and is even bigger, beefier and beer-ier than last year, Paddy’s Pub is a full-scale replica from the show, complete with Flipadelphia flip cup, It’s Always Sunny Trivia and surprise performances throughout the weekend.
A visit to Paddy’s Pub wouldn’t be complete without pub grub. This year’s offerings include Bagged Spaghetti with Medicine Balls (spaghetti and meatballs out of a plastic zipper bag), Vitamin Balls with Rat Trap Cheese (meatballs with parmesan cheese on skewers), The Wurst Pretzel (bratwurst on a pretzel bun), Tachos (tater tots with nacho cheese and other toppings), Alley Almonds (spicy almonds) and Dill Pickles.
NETFLIX’S ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT
Fans who have taken too much Teamocil, or have an affinity for jorts, will love visiting the Netflix favorite Arrested Development’s pop up experience where they will get to see a full-scale replica of the Banana Stand with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate or peanut butter dipped bananas for purchase - there’s always money in the banana stand! If that’s not enough, fans can also “hop-on” and pose for a photo on the Bluth family Stair Car. There will also be a screening of a classic show episode followed by a panel discussion. After the panel, an energetic and affirming Parade will march through the festival grounds.
DOUBLE DARE PRESENTED BY MTN DEW KICKSTART
Mtn Dew Kickstart and NickSplat, Nickelodeon’s fan-driven brand dedicated to the network’s legendary library of hits from the 1990s and beyond, will give Clusterfest attendees the chance to quench their thirst for messy, nostalgic fun by racing through iconic Double Dare challenges.
