On August 7 2019, musician Tommy Lee shared a screenshot of a longer post to Twitter, commentary in which he purportedly began “You Trumpsters better pray that liberals never gain control of the WH again”:

However, the words did not originate with Lee.Their origin and authorship was not known, but an identical rant was shared to Reddit’s r/copypasta in July 2018 — more than a year before Lee’s tweet:
That post was identical to Lee’s, reading in full:
You Trumpsters better pray that liberals never gain control of the WH again because we are going to pay you back so fucking hard for all of this shit. Planned Parenthoods on every damn corner. We’re going to repaint Air Force One, pussy hat pink and fly it over your beloved Bible Belt 6 days a week, tossing birth control pills, condoms, and atheist literature from the cockpit. We’re going to tax your mega churches so bad Joel Olsteen will need to get a job at Chik Fil A to pay his light bill. Speaking of Chik Fil A, we’re buying all those and giving them to any LGBTQ you sick cult leaders tortured with conversion therapy. Have fun with your new menu you bigoted fucks. Try the McPence. It’s a boiled, unseasoned chicken breast that you have to eat in the closet with your mother. ALL parks will be renamed Rosa Parks asap. We’re replacing Confederate statues with BLM leaders and Mexican immigrants. Every single public school will be renamed after a child that was kidnapped by this regime. And after we fumigate the WH, we’re repainting the whole thing rainbow. Fox News will be taken over and turned into a family refugee shelter. We’re turning Hannity’s office into a giant unisex bathroom with changing tables and free tampons. And every single time a Trumpster complains about any of the changes, we’re adding an openly gay character to a Disney movie.
Twitter rumors indicated the possible author of the original screed was a woman named Renee Torres. Screenshots of a series of tweets seemed to attribute it to Torres originally:
It was actually written by Renee Torres, but bless Tommy Lee for putting it on blast. Funny how a woman who created and posted it, was trolled to the point of having to make her Twitter account private, but when a dude says it, it’s roundly celebrated, huh? pic.twitter.com/oHvEtxc51o

The plot thickened when we went to her now-private Twitter profile, which reads:
Fake Feminist Rants and Snarky Asides. Parody account. You libs got owned bigly.
Whatever the case, Tommy Lee didn’t seem to go to any lengths to not take credit for the “you Trumpsters” tweet, but he only reposted it and did not write it himself.
