Trump's TikTok ban: Did comedian Sarah Cooper's funny videos make POTUS ban app? Internet certainly thinks so
'When the history of Trump's dire tenure is finally written, Sarah Cooper's role will be recognized for its importance'
As soon as news broke that President Donald Trump was set to ban TikTok as reported by Yahoo News, many took to the Internet to not only express their sadness but also speculate as to why the POTUS was making this decision now. After countries such as India have already banned the popular app, investigators in the US are concerned that TikTok's parent application may be procuring data from millions of users in the United States.
Onboard Air Force Once, Trump told reporters that he will be banning the app. It was further reported by Sputnik, that the reason behind Trump's recent decision was "security fears" and that the president will be acting on his motion "as soon as Saturday". While some TikTok users expressed disappointment, others wondered if comedian Sarah Cooper's digs made Trump ban the popular video-sharing app.
Cooper's Twitter bio proudly states that she is a writer and a comedian and then hilariously adds that the comedian is #blockedbytrump. The talented personality is the author of '100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings' and 'How to Be Successful Without Hurting Men's Feelings' and has publicly expressed her distaste for the president, causing Trump to be the brunt of her comedy videos.
Fans of the comedian took to Twitter to tweet and re-tweet Cooper's most recent video that shows the comedian taunting President Trump as she imitates him speaking of possibly banning the popular video-sharing platform. Cooper posted the video on her Twitter with the caption, "How to tick tack" and fans couldn't help but laugh and wonder if the POTUS was taking down the platform because of jokes made at his expense.
While there were a few attacking comments from Trump supporters in the writer's comments section, many came out to support her. "When the history of Trump's dire tenure is finally written, Sarah Cooper's role will be recognized for its importance. She showed the cretinous, narcissistic old windbag for exactly what he is," wrote one user, and another added, "Love it Sarah Cooper you always make my week much brighter in a world full of chaos."

This is not the first time Cooper has posted TikTok videos and normal videos on her feed where she imitates the President. Many fans brought up another recent video that the comedian put up where she is imitating the president speaking of the cognitive test that he had done well in. "How to person woman man camera tv," read Cooper's tweet.

Another comedy writer, Jesse McLaren, took to the social media to tweet the very thing many were thinking, "Sarah Cooper is the real reason Trump is banning TikTok," she wrote. While Trump had expressed concerns about security, many consider his decision "ridiculous" and while we may never know the real reason POTUS wants to ban TikTok, some of Internet definitely thinks it's because of Sarah Cooper. But, as many on Twitter said, "@sarahcprshe still has Insta, YouTube and Facebook, oh and Twitter. She ain’t going nowhere!"
