The funniest headline on Trump’s election victory appeared in a Scottish tabloid
Donald Trump, who will become the 45th President of the United States of America, has a strong connection to Scotland.
He is half Scottish, owns two golf courses and was also involved in a legal battle over wind turbines off the Scottish coast.
Despite that Trump has not made much friends and is not a popular figure in Scotland. He has criticised their environmental, feud with minister Axel Salmond and supported the Brexit campaign.
Therefore, it was no surprise that Scottish tabloid the Daily Record published this as their front page on Thursday morning as spotted by Mashable.
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon told the Scottish Parliament on Thursday that they hope that Trump turns out to be a different president than a candidate.
As soon as he was elected president, Twitter erupted and made his unpopularity abundantly clear. Many Brits even begged Obama to move to their country and lead them.
Even way back before he began on his road to the White House, his campaign to build a golf course in Aberdeen made him hated among many of the locals.
This is how Scottish Twitter reacted after Trump’s win:
