*Black Twitter is wondering if President Donald Trump accidentally liked a tweet from the account @shiningheaux reacting to an episode of HBO’s hit comedy-drama series “Insecure”.
Trump even has Issa Rae, star and creator of of the show, giving him the side eye over his one and only “like” on Twitter.
The tweet is a GIF from a scene in “The Color Purple,” and the user references Issa (Issa Rae) and Molly’s (Yvonne Orji) friendship in the caption. “This is how I wanted tonight’s episode of insecure to end…Damn Molly,” the tweet reads.
Many Twitter users are perplexed and amused that Trump may be a fan of a show that has a majority Black cast.

“Donald Trump likes Insecure. We are in the f—ing upside down,” wrote one user, via PEOPLE.
Another added: “Who had Donald Trump watches Insecure on their 2020 bingo cards?!”
A third said, “He may have tuned in thinking it was a show about employment, economic, or policing concerns, thinking he could use it for messaging outreach.”
When Rae, the show’s creator and star, caught word about Trump’s “Like” of the series, she replied, “what the f— is this.”

Actor Kumail Nanjiani, who co-stars with Rae in the recently released “The Lovebirds,” wrote of Trump, “Well I found one thing I have in common with him: we’re both big fans of @IssaRae.”
Rae responded with a “Don’t say that” GIF. To which Nanjiani replied, “I’m just as surprised as you are.”
Check out the post below.
Many Twitter users believe Trump’s “Like” of the show is a hack or hoax. Some noted that the president’s aides also have access to his account and sometimes tweet for him.
Perhaps someone on the Trump Team is a fan of the show.
Well I found one thing I have in common with him: we’re both big fans of @IssaRae.
