After the third and final US presidential debate on Thursday, it was easy to conclude that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's attitude at all the three debates could be described with one word: Crass.
Whether they were enlightening remarks about the "nasty woman" and "bad hombres" or the ingenious "Wrong!" comeback to pretty much any allegation made against him, the remarks made by Trump perhaps set a new low for debating.
And what is the worst thing you can imagine a person like that doing? That's right: Commenting on literature.
Whenever someone makes a strange remark or does something ridiculous, you can expect a hilarious response from the Twitterati.
And this time, people on Twitter told us what it would look like if Donald Trump reviewed or commented on some classic works in literature:
I don't read books.
They're all rigged.
Reading is for losers.

Cartoonist Matthew Inman also created a brilliant comic to show how to 'Trump', a line of thinking which must have been used to create a lot of these tweets.
We were so inspired by the witty tweets that we decided to give the Trump treatment to some Indian writing:
"Three Mistakes of My Life? Wrong, that's just fiction. I never made any mistakes. Ask Sean Hannity. No one asks Sean Hannity."
"The Hungry Tide? I never read that. It's just immigrants and bad hombres trying to take our jobs."
"The Discovery of India? I love India, okay? There's swatches of land there. I own property there."
"I used to have a Half Girlfriend, believe me. Now she's accusing me of groping her. #NastyWoman"
"Midnight's Children are a disaster. Just a disaster. You've got to build a wall to keep those bad hombres out. Bigly."
"I don't know Ram. But 14 years in the jungle and he didn't build a single hotel. That's bad business"
