Less than one year ago, the United States was governed by a president who used his social media accounts to inform the public, offer good wishes, and share photos of his beautiful family. My, how times have changed.
President Trump has tweeted 2,548 times since January 1, 2017 according to the Trump Twitter archives website. While nearly all of them 2ould have made this list under any other president, these are the absolute craziest, disgusting, and most frightening tweets from the man who now sits in the highest office in the land.
20. Trump Attacks Meryl Streep
Back before Twitter expanded Trump’s ability to embarrass the U.S. by granting him 280 words per tweet (thanks, Twitter), the president spent a morning typing three entire tweets insulting a Hollywood actress for her Golden Globes speech. Because that’s important.
19. Trump Accuses Joe Scarborough of Murder
The fact that a sitting president accused a journalist who dared to say negative things about him of murder, and that isn’t the craziest story of the year, really speaks to how upside-down the country has become.
18. Trump Claims He Never Knew His Sexual Assault Accusers
The Democrats must have photoshopped the pictures of Trump with his accusers. Oh, and they made up a story about Trump hosting a television reality show called The Apprentice, where Trump was filmed speaking to and interacting with one of the accusers, as well.
17. Trump Turned Down Time’s Person of the Year Cover
The man who told the world he had appeared on Time magazine’s cover more times than anyone else (he hasn’t) and who hung fake Time covers in his golf resorts, expects the country to believe he turned down an opportunity to legitimately appear on the cover. No one believes that, nor should they.
16. Only The Flattering Poll Numbers Count
All news about Trump that is not flattering is simply “fake news.” In fact, all polls are Antifa now. So sayeth the leader of our once respected country.
15. Andrew Jackson Could Have Stopped the Civil War
The man who was president 24 years before the Civil War could have stopped it from happening. Of course, Jackson was also a slave owner, so the country is quite happy he wasn’t president in 1861. Well, everyone except for Trump’s supporters, that is.
14. Trump Threatens James Comey
Threatening a witness in a criminal investigation against you was once called “obstruction of justice.” Today, it’s just another Trump tweet.
13. The Conspiracy Theorist Hates Conspiracy Theories
Fox News, who once speculated that President Obama’s fist bump with his wife may be a “Muslim fist jab,” is praised by the president who told the American public that reliable sources said President Obama’s birth certificate was a fake. Trump hates conspiracy theories, of course. That’s why he loves Fox & Friends.
12. Mexico Will Still ‘Pay for the Wall’
Trump promised his supporters he would “build a wall” and “make Mexico pay for it.” The president of Mexico assured Trump that wouldn’t happen. Trump hit back by making the American taxpayers fund it and raising tariffs on good imported from Mexico…which the American people will have to pay to buy those goods. But maybe Trump will send Mexico a bill for the wall “later?”
11. Trump Attacks ‘Al Frankenstien’
One would think that Trump would avoid discussions about sexual assault considering his own history. Of course, one would assume a U.S. president would know how to spell Frankenstein, too. One would be wrong.
10. Trump’s Twitter War with A College Kid’s Dad
An 18-year-old college kid should have sat in prison for 10 years because his father wouldn’t kiss Trump’s ring. That makes sense.
9. Fox News is More Credible than CNN
Poor Trump. People not currently living in the United States are smarter than Trump’s rabid fan base, and he just can’t stand it.
8. Trump Attacks A War Widow
He could have humbly apologized for any misunderstanding. Nope. It’s far easier, and more presidential, to attack a pregnant war widow on Twitter.
7. Trump Calls News Media ‘The Enemy’
All negative press is the enemy according to Donald Trump…and Adolph Hitler.
6. Trump Declares Homophobic National Policy on Social Media
It took Trump three entire tweets to break his promise to “protect our LGBT citizens,” and it took a few judges even less time to declare Trump’s new military policy unconstitutional.
5. President Obama Tapped Trump’s Wires
Of course, none of that turned out to be true. No matter, Trump’s supporters believed it anyway.
4. Trump Sexually Harasses A U.S. Senator
The White House press secretary scolded reporters for having their “minds in a gutter” when they read this tweet about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, but the sexual inuendo is hard to ignore, especially from the p*ssy grabber-in-chief.
3. Trump Retweets White Nationalist Leader in Britain
Trump loves to call the accusations of racism against him “fake news” invented by the media and the Democrats, but retweeting a white nationalist group leader recently charged for assaulting a Muslim woman in front of her children got him banned from parts of London…because he’s a racist.
2. Trump Calls Kim Jong Un ‘Short and Fat’
So much for diplomacy, right?
1. Trump Admits to A Crime on Social Media
Trump insists that he needs Twitter to get honest information out to the American people. Unless he confesses to a crime. Then his Twitter account is being run by his lawyer.
