Donald Trump did not end the tragic year of 2019 with a bang. No, he ended it more appropriately for him — with a tweet. Unlike most of his tweets, though. He spoke directly into the camera, and this is how it went down.
The president and First Lady Melania Trump were dressed to the nines in formal evening attire for the Mar-a-Lago’s New Year’s party. The music played behind the first couple.
At that point, it occurs to us that the U.S. president may actually be an automaton. Trump only has a few responses, all in the Chatty Kathy doll range. When a person pulled her string, she spoke a few phrases. Put the money in, and POTUS speaks with a few short phrases:
‘HAPPY NEW YEAR!’
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 1, 2020
When asked about the Baghdad embassy attack, he said:
‘I like peace…The Marines came in, the great warriors. instantaneously. Very quickly.’
One reporter asked him about the American economy:
How did he feel about the impeachment? He responded with the same old message:
‘Impeachment is a hoax.”‘
Then, a reporter asked about North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un sending him a Christmas present,” Trump responded:
‘Christmas present. I hope it’s a beautiful vase.’
Yet, it was the response from Twitter world that was most interesting:
Jeff Tiedrich shouted out this answer:
‘YOUR RESIGNATION WOULD MAKE IT ONE’
The Trumps have been raking in the money by selling their red hats. The one Louise posted had a different message. It read “DON’Y MAKE THIS MISTAKE AGAIN,” and she tweeted:
‘This would make it happy.’
Dian A. added her comment “Yeah, the year you do down,” and posted this tweet:
‘TRUMP WILL DO DOWN IN HISTORY AS THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER. LAWS WILL BE PASSED TO PREVENT IT EVER HAPPENING AGAIN.’
Starwatcher posted the president a one-finger salute:
‘AMERICA SALUES YOU’
Dan Slott posted a video of Trump shying away from the symbol of our great country, the bald eagle. Perhaps, it was also a symbol of him shying away from all who stand up against him. Maybe it was symbolic of this president avoiding all that is good about the nation:
Next, Shawn Griffin tweeted a picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) decked out in a red Santa hat and giving her iconic hand clap:
Holly Lee posted the top Supreme Court man Justice John Roberts’ wise words. He said that the public would need to “understand our government and the protections it provides.” Could that extend to POTUS, too:
‘Wise words from John Roberts at the close of the decade: “In our age, when social media can instantly spread rumor and false information on a grand scale, the public’s need to understand our government, and the protections it provides, is ever more vital.”‘
Own Rules ended the evening urging kids to compare President Barack Obam and Trump:
