An onion in a bag is Twitter’s newest celebrity. In just three days, @HalfOnionInABag — an account pretending to be, well, an onion… in a bag — has amassed a staggering 168,000 followers with gems like this “who wore it better” quip:

The account came out of the gates strong, receiving huge engagement numbers in its fairly short posting history. Ambition, though, is what this onion does best. The account started with a singular goal of besting President Trump and his 21.7 million Twitter followers.

Its mission — if completed — would certainly bring tears to the eyes of our notoriously thin-skinned President — a man famous for rants about everything from television ratings for his own show ‘The Apprentice” to how unfunny Saturday night mainstay SNL has become.

Godspeed, @HalfOnionInABag.
