Have you ever taken the time to browse these pro-Trump meme accounts on Instagram?

I'm looking at one now called @TrumpNation20.  It has a total of 1,200 posts and 42.8k followers. Some of the posts are pandering, with messages like 'If you're pro-life, give a follow.'  But then you have stuff like this:

That's bordering on out-right fakeness.  The quote isn't real. (If it were, there would be 10,000 Google results for it.)  And there's no real humor to it, either.  They're just claiming that a Congresswoman wants to do harm to Trump.  And then you've got responses from people like briannk3, who said:  "Threatening the President is a felony, I believe!" and marycrockettsleezer, who says "Isn't that a threat against the President? Thought you got thrown in JAIL for that."

The @TrumpNation20 account contains a discount link in its bio to the website, which apparently is a company in Raleigh, North Carolina that makes American hats.  I don't necessarily think the two are connected.  I mean, look at the rest of the bio for @TrumpNation20:

A person from Raleigh wouldn't write something as janky as "America First US".
