NEW YORK, October 16, 2018 – The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library is coming to Miami. The hugely successful, critically-acclaimed Presidential Twitter Library will open in Miami just ahead of The Daily Show’s week of shows at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater.

On opening day only, Friday, October 26, the event hours are 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. ET. For the rest of the weekend (10/27-10/28) hours are 10:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. ET.

Every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has been honored with a meticulously curated memorial library commemorating the documents of historical value crafted during his time as leader of the free world. Continuing this hallowed tradition, and seeing no need to wait for him to leave office, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will once again honor our current president with The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library, showcasing our Commander-in-Chief’s preferred vessel for communicating with the public, his Twitter feed.
This marks the fifth time The Daily Show with Trevor Noah Presents: The Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library will be on display with previous stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and its phenomenal debut in New York City. The library received the prestigious Grand Prix award at the 2018 Cannes Lions International Festival. The Lions are the most established and coveted awards for the creative and marketing industry in the world. The library in Miami will feature visual installations and a fully interactive, hands-on experience for hands of all sizes, giving patrons the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to memorialize and celebrate the many “unpresidented” moments of President Trump’s Twitter history.
Select exhibitions housed in the Presidential Twitter Library include:
- THE COMMANDER-IN-TWEET: In the Library’s marquee attraction, attendees will step into a replica of the Oval Office, be presented with a crisis situation, and have 30 seconds to compose a tweet white sitting on a golden toilet, just like the president!
