Reports are coming in that Donald Trump has been hospitalised with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the foot.

The incident happened in the early hours of this morning after Donald Trump accidentally called into question the legitimacy of the US Presidential Election, which he won, in a spectacularly idiotic (or shall we say Trumpian) Twitter meltdown.

Donald tweeted that there were “millions of illegal votes” cast during the election which effectively poured gasoline on Jill Stein’s campaign for a recount.

The Supreme Court is yet to step in and nullify the election result but given that both the winning AND losing sides seem convinced that the election was a farce it can only be a matter of time.

Mr Trump is expected to make a partial recovery and should be able to walk without a stick by 2018.
