Mark Hamill reads Trump tweet as the Joker.

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, who also voices the Joker in animated Batman series, is using his take on Gotham's most famous villain to make Donald Trump tweets sound even more nefarious.
Hamill tweeted an audio clip Saturday of the Joker reciting Trump's infamous December 31st tweet, "Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don't know what to do. Love!"

Hamill's Joker reading of Trump's tweet came following an idea seeded by comedy writer Matt Oswalt, who tweeted on December 31st of Trump's New Year's message, "This sounds like something the Joker would say right before releasing a swarm of killer bees into Gotham."

On Saturday, Oswalt tweeted, "BILLION DOLLAR IDEA: an App that you can feed every Trump tweet into that plays it back in @HamillHimself Joker voice," a concept that was endorsed by Oswalt's brother Patton Oswalt.
Soon after, Hamill himself tweeted to the Oswalts, "As soon as I figure out how to tweet soundbites, I'd LOVE to. Nobody writes better super-villain dialogue than #Trumputin! #KremlinCandidate." Twitter followers quickly came to Hamill's aid and the audio clip was created.
In addition to portraying Luke Skywalker, Hamill has long served as the voice for the Joke in animated series, films and video games, starting with 1992's Batman: The Animated Series and continuing as the Clown Prince of Crime up through 2016's Justice League Action.
Hamill criticized Trump throughout the presidential election season, employing hashtags like #PutinsPuppet #KGB4Trump and #TheKremlinsAndKKKsKandidate.
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

I listened to it, and I am still like

"HOLY SHIT!"

I swear when you hear it coming from the Joker, it MAKES FUCKING SENSE.

You almost believe that if the Joker hadn't been dumped into the chemical vat, he'd have become a billionare real estate developer and would have become President of the United States.....

Or that maybe, in this universe, HE DID......

I know. Its disturbing how well it fits.

Edit: Actually, in canon, doesn't "billionaire real estate developer who becomes President" basically describe Lex Luthor?

Lex Luthor has sense though, and a Level 12 Intellect. Trump could only dream of being so diabolical.
"I could while away the hours, conferrin' with the flowers, consultin' with the rain.
And my head I'd be scratchin', while my thoughts were busy hatchin', if I only had a brain!
I would not be just a nothin', my head all full of stuffin', my heart all full of pain.
I would dance and be merry, life would be would be a ding-a-derry, if I only had a brain!"
