Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) was seemingly inspired by Nevada 16-year-old Carter Wilkerson’s mission to gain 18 million retweets in exchange for a year of free chicken nuggets from Wendy’s. He employed a similar tactic to tackle Trump Wednesday:
By early Thursday, Wyden’s lighthearted request for Trump to share his tax returns if his post gained 18 million retweets had been shared more than 11,000 times.
It’s a long way off the 2.7 million retweets of Wilkerson’s post, which is tipped to soon become the most retweeted ever:
Trump had yet to reply to Wyden’s challenge. Even if Wyden’s post did somehow achieve 18 million retweets, it’s unlikely that the president would even pay it any attention.
