Sunday brought an especially funny but also self-aware tweet from the President of the United States. Trump tweeted, "They just didn't' get it, but they do now!" in response to a YouTube video created by a fan. Trump also featured the video along with his tweet which shows him being relentlessly mocked by both cartoons like the Simpsons and mainstream media personalities.

Rosie O'Donnell was among the faces of disbelief that were showcased in succession before the video switched to footage after Trump's victory. The video also shows opponents to the Trump administration becoming infuriated that he won making the irony of his caption even sweeter.

The YouTube channel responsible for the video Trump tweeted is called eLouai who had this to say about the making of the clip.
"The narrative was simple. Starts with the "never trump" comments. A nod to the tapes, a nod to the influence of money, a quick summary of polling data (removed the original 20 that I had since it bogged down the pace of the clip), set the stage for the infamous election night. Decided to drop all other commentary from ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and MSNBC and just concentrated on TYT network to prevent the scene feeling too disjointed. Also had the best reaction from TYT group, well specifically Cenk Uygur, love that name."
The video which Trump featured was made by the YouTuber a year ago. Elouai's original video features an extra few seconds of footage which include a plug to his channel a man laughing hysterically <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=monFrbRDa6w">you can watch here if you want.</a>
