Her tweet:

If barraco barner is our president, why is he getting involved with Russia scary

Apparently, the inaccuracy and major flaws in her tweet were funny to her friends so they retweeted it. But, so did the rest of the UK……. and the world.

Within 12 hours of the tweet going up it had been tweeted up to 6,000 times (more than the actual amount of her followers at the time).  But she was loving every moment of it. Yeah honey ‘you’re sick, still look like a princess though’.

Of course, the trolls were lurking. Especially when you have your own hashtag for something as stupid such as tweeting about Barraco Barner , sorry we mean Barack Obama.
