Trump’s Twitter Meltdown Is So Complete, He’s Thanking Himself
| Donald Trump never has painted himself for the most part mature or stable or for that matter coherent person via his antics on his personal Twitter account. From his all-night ramblings, to his infantile feuds, to his 3:00 am proclamations about sex tapes, to his one-sided arguments with China, he’s long appeared to be coming apart.
But this Christmas week in particular, since the Electoral College made him official, he appears to be in the middle of a full scale meltdown as he faces the view of actually having to be president. And his final tweet today 12/27 put a punctuation mark on a man who appears to have finally, totally lost it.
Not that anything about Trump’s past week of tweeting has made any sense. He’s quoted Vladimir Putin by name. He falsely accused NBC News of misquoting him, while spelling “quote” incorrectly. He claimed the United Nations was a place to have a “good time.” And he insisted the world was “gloomy” before he won, even though he has the lowest approval rating of any president-elect on record. But his closing tweet today may have been the most disturbing.
After Donald Trump spent the day having a one-sided Twitter argument about whether he would have defeated President Obama in a head to head election matchup, Trump moved on to trying to take credit for Obama’s economy. Trump’s final tweet of the day read: “The U.S. Consumer Confidence Index for December surged nearly four points to 113.7, THE HIGHEST LEVEL IN MORE THAN 15 YEARS! Thanks Donald!”
That’s right, he actually finished his tweet by thanking himself in the third person. He’s that far gone. It’s enough to make you miss the days when he was merely tweeting imaginary words like “unpresidented.”
THOUGHTS ON TRUMP
Look, I don’t like this man – but due to a crappy way of deciding who wins the presidential election – he is our president – but he needs to stop with tweets. Making policy decisions and foreign policy with Twitter made him look like an idiot; or like a teenager instead of a president. Other countries are making fun of him. Someone on his staff needs to firmly tell him that this is not presidential.
