The president is known for making some pretty dumb choices. Namely, the things he says on his social media page, during public speeches, on-camera interviews, etc. He doesn’t really think things through when he speaks, and sort of just lives in the moment.
That often comes back to bite him when something he says is either debunked, misspelled, or just completely inaccurate. Today is a perfect example.
On Thursday, the House of Representatives lost 92-year old John Dingell who served in the house from 1955 to 2015. Dingell was more recently known for his hilarious Twitter account in which he mocked the president’s every move.
Now, the president is on Twitter acting like they were the best of friends, which did not sit well with people at all. Check out what Trump just tweeted:
Deepest sympathies to Congresswoman Debbie Dingell and the entire family of John Dingell. Longest serving Congressman in Country’s history which, if people understand politics, means he was very smart. A great reputation and highly respected man.

The responses Trump got for his phony show of presidential behavior were staggering. People are furious. Look at a few of the reactions from Twitter users below:
