President-elect Donald Trump is known for stirring trouble with his less than friendly villainous tweets. From throwing shade at media outlets to taunting his foes, Trump’s tweets often come across mean and vile, almost like a super villain.
Case in point, Trump’s now infamous New Year’s tweets. Instead of simply wishing everyone a Happy New Year, the president-elect decided to shout out his haters and naysayers in the process.
Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don't know what to do. Love!

Director Matt Oswalt took one look at Trump’s tweets and came up with a hilarious scenario.
this sounds like something the Joker would say right before releasing a swarm of killer bees into Gotham https://t.co/SyKsCHvyuh

After comparing Trump to The Joker, Oswalt epically suggested a, “BILLION DOLLAR IDEA: an App that you can feed every Trump tweet into that plays it back in @HamillHimself Joker voice. You’re welcome.”
Mark Hamill, aka the voice of The Joker in the Batman: The Animated Series, co-signed the suggestion and even offered Trump a sarcasm filled compliment.

Hamill quickly uploaded the first of what we hope will be a series of Trump tweets in The Joker’s voice with the help of Audioboom.
