The subreddit /r/thedonald (not to be confused with /r/the_donald) was a venue for fervent Donald Trump supporters to express their affection for America's president. That is, until Donald Glover's "This Is America" (performed as Childish Gambino) topped musical charts. Now, the subreddit has been taken over by Donald Glover fans, and the results are pretty much as spectacular as you'd expect.

The /r/thedonald subreddit wasn't as active as the more prominent /r/the_donald, which is probably why the moderator had been inactive for a few weeks. (For reference, the description of the subreddit reads, "The place where we discuss in an unbiased manner Donald Trumps great contributions to modern society.") Fans of Donald Glover saw this as their opportunity to swoop in and take over the subreddit for themselves, posting pictures, gifs and videos of the person they consider the best Donald.

It's not clear how much longer this will continue before the moderator steps in and shuts all of this activity down, but it's a lot of fun while it lasts. We've highlighted some of the best posts for you below, but it's worth looking through the most upvoted posts just for a laugh.
