Donald Trump’s newest Twitter rival is… an onion in a bag?

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:

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

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.
