Donald Trump’s living every week like it’s Shark Week, and the internet’s freaking. Stormy Daniels claims he’s ‘terrified’ of sharks, and he’s getting mocked on Twitter!
Well, there’s another thing to add to Donald Trump‘s list of fears, besides walking down stairs, messing up his hair, getting called to testify by Robert Mueller, and Vladimir Putin. The president allegedly has a deep fear and hatred of sharks, according to porn star Stormy Daniels‘ bombshell 2011 interview with InTouch Weekly. In fact, he’s allegedly “obsessed” with getting rid of sharks completely! You have to read this to believe it.
“The strangest thing about that night — this was the best thing ever,” Stormy told InTouch, referring to a dinner she had with Trump at his private bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2006. “You could see the television from the little dining room table and he was watching Shark Week. And he was watching a special about the U.S.S. something and it sank and it was like the worst shark attack in history. He is obsessed with sharks. Terrified of sharks.
“He was like, ‘I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.’ He was like, riveted. He was like, obsessed. It’s so strange, I know.” That’s pretty hilarious. And it really seems like she’s telling the truth on this one. Trump sent a bizarre series of tweets on July 4, 2013 about disliking sharks. “Sharks are last on my list — other than perhaps the losers and haters of the World!” he tweeted, followed by, “Sorry folks, I’m just not a fan of sharks — and don’t worry, they will be around long after we are gone.” WTF.
Exhibit B: Trump was asked to play the president in Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! in 2015. He immediately declined the role. It’s all coming together, people. Exhibit C: Trump’s mortal enemy is Mark Cuban, who hosts the show Shark Tank. And it consistently got better ratings than The Apprentice when it was still on-air (before being cancelled because Trump is racist as hell). You do the math!
Twitter erupted after Stormy’s interview dropped, and voters couldn’t resist absolutely roasting the president for his phobia. Take a scroll below to read the very best tweets:

Trump’s obsessed with sharks b/c he’s jealous of how many teeth they have.

If you have the urge to react to the In Touch Story, let the reaction be this…
ADOPT A SHARK
And name it Donald J. Trump. You’ll donate to a just cause, get a shark plush AND upset a man who wants to rid the world of sharks. It’s a win-win-win. https://t.co/wXkHs24xGH

I wonder if Trump’s fear of sharks can be traced back to West Side Story.

Can we hire those sharks from the super bowl a few years back to follow Trump around?

Trump’s antipathy toward sharks is ironic given that he too is 100% made of cartilage.

Trump is terrified of sharks? Stop projecting "Shithole" on the side of Trump's hotels and start running Robert Jaws speech from Jaws on loop.
