About

Donald Trump Jr, Chocolate Bunny Interview refers to an image macro series based on a viral photograph of United States president Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., being interviewed by a reporter who is blocked by a chocolate bunny. Because of the angle, it appears as though the bunny is interviewing Trump.

Origin

On March 12th, 2018, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette photographer Andrew Rush tweeted [1] a photograph of Donald Trump Jr. being interviewed at a Pennsylvania candy factory. However, because a chocolate bunny was blocking the interviewer, the photograph features an optical illusion in which it appears that the bunny is interviewing Trump. Rush captioned the photograph, "This is the danger of campaigning at a candy factory. #PA18." The post (shown below) received more than 5,500 retweets and 20,000 likes in 24 hours.
