Carpooling with The Donald doesn't count if it's just a cutout of his head

But nice try.

Washington State Patrol pulled over a driver and his car pool buddy, Donald Trump (well, sort of), on Tuesday.

The driver, who was cruising in the HOV lane, had a “yuge” cutout of The Donald’s head attached to the passenger-seat headrest, The Washington Post reported. What else is an officer to do, but fine the driver for the violation and snap a photo for the world to enjoy?

State Patrol spokesman Rick Johnson posted the photo on Twitter and tweeted: “WSP Motorcycle Trooper Greg Ulrich stopped a vehicle this morning NB 167 in Auburn for violating the HOV lane. Do you know why?”

“I’m sure he’s insisting he did in fact not violate the HOV rule,” one tweeter replied, referring to Monday night’s debate. “Just call Sean.”

“I think you have to have two human beings in the car to drive in the carpool lane. @realdonaldtrump definitely does not qualify,” one person said, burning the GOP presidential candidate.

One tweeter commented that “airbags don’t count as passengers” while another surmised that “Trump is so YUGLY rich he can afford his own lane.”

The driver was cited and fined $136, the minimum for an HOV violation, according to the King County patrol district.

Johnson and Uhlrich, who both have about 25 years on the force, have stopped other drivers violating HOV lane rules with mannequins and cutouts, but after seeing Trump’s head, Johnson told The Washington Post, “we’ve seen it all.”

The Washington State Patrol Twitter account got in on the fun andretweetedthe photo adding, "In case you didn't know...this doesn't qualify for HOV lanes."
