Even as he forced a shutdown of the federal government last night, Donald Trump decided to try to create the appearance that was busy working. It didn’t go well.

On Friday night, Trump took to Twitter to announce that he was canceling his flight to Mar-a-Lago and posted a photo that’s supposed to prove he’s busy signing a bunch of bills at his desk. But there’s a problem: that thing he’s signing in the photo isn’t a bill.

“Some of the many Bills that I am signing in the Oval Office right now. Cancelled my trip on Air Force One to Florida while we wait to see if the Democrats will help us to protect America’s Southern Border!” Trump wrote.

Here’s a close-up of what Donald Trump is purporting to sign:

That’s right, it’s a blank piece of paper.

We’re not sure we even understand what’s going on here. This is just weird even by late-stage addled Trump standards. And Twitter users were quick to point that out.

Yup. That is the President of the United States.
