The Trumps sometimes seemingly try and normalize themselves in the eyes of the public… but it doesn’t work. No number of tweets will erase the facts of the havoc of the Trump regime and the culpability of the people who’ve enabled that chaos, like the president’s daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump. This Sunday, she posted a message on Twitter acknowledging her father’s 74th birthday (which is this Sunday), but it’s not as though many Americans were exactly happy to hear from her.
Alongside a photo of herself as a child with her dad, Ivanka wrote:
‘Happy Birthday @realDonaldTrump ! Love you!’

A lot of commenters posted about Barack Obama in response to Ivanka’s post. Across Twitter, people posted about “Obama Day” on Sunday; after all, the current president has already long proven how absolutely frenzied he’s ready to get at the slightest mention of his immediate predecessor, Barack Obama. Many parts of Trump’s policy agenda have seemed specifically designed to thwart Obama’s policies for the sake of dismantling the Obama “legacy.”
As one Twitter user — Dr. Lara Carlson — put it on Sunday:
‘Impossible to pick just one @PeteSouza photo of my President. @BarackObama encompassed everything a leader should: strength, compassion, clarity, accountability, affability, humility.’

Neither the president nor any of the rest of the Trumps could claim pretty much any of those adjectives. Trump’s behavior consistently amplifies the polar opposite of “humility” — how else could one explain the president’s egomania that’s gotten to the point where he freely posts a conspiracy theory that an elderly man who was injured by police might be a secret “Antifa” agitator?
President Trump is now accusing Martin Gugino, the 75 year old white man pushed to the ground by police in Buffalo, NY, of faking his fall and being a member of ANTIFA.
