The HBO series stars writer and co-creator Issa Rae as Issa Dee and Yvonne Orji as her best friend Molly. Lately, things have been tense between the onscreen pair (like really tense!). Twitter user @shiningheaux addressed the relationship in a tweet about Sunday’s episode, writing “This is how I wanted tonight's episode of insecure to end...Damn Molly,” accompanied by a gif from The Color Purple of two young Black girls playing a clapping game in a field of flowers.

Trump liked the tweet (and has yet to unlike it) — the only “like” currently visible on his profile. Twitter reacted accordingly:
Donald Trump likes Insecure. We are in the fucking upside down.

Rae herself responded to Trump’s confusing possible standom, writing, “what the fuck is this” on another user’s post.

Rae’s Lovebirds co-star Kumail Nanjiani also addressed Trump’s bizarre behavior, writing, “Well I found one thing I have in common with him: we’re both big fans of @IssaRae."

So, is Trump really invested in Molly and Issa’s friendship? We’re going to assume the like was accidental and something more along the lines of this …
