Ah, Donald J. Trump – presumably our only president whose tweets come directly from his own – NOT SMALL – thumbs, instead of being carefully manufactured into inoffensive, flavorless blocks of word-meat by a team of government employees.
Whether you think his unfiltered tweets are refreshing, dangerous, hilarious or just plain stupid, we can all agree on one thing: they’re iconic. Here are 10 of old Don’s most iconic tweets of all time:
If you have the Google Chrome plugin that displays all of Trump’s tweets in the handwriting of an 8-year-old, you will see what is almost picture-for-picture and word-for-word my own diary entry from a decade earlier. Should I sue for plagiarism?
Ha! I am a big fan of this fun and playful tweet! However, as funny as it is, he does have a point. Why wasn’t Trump cast as the male lead in “A Star is Born” or “Bohemian Rhapsody”? A missed opportunity. Sad!
If you replace some of the words in this tweet, it could pass as an average Stan Twitter tweet: “To Kanye West: NEVER, EVER THREATEN TAYLOR SWIFT AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A FANDOM THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR SHADE. BE CAUTIOUS!”
Mad respect to Don for this one. It takes a big man to restrain from flexing your intellectual prowess on your haters. The fact that he both apologizes to and consoles those low IQ losers and haters shows a keen sense of emotional maturity – all in 140 characters or less!
We love simplicity. I appreciate the interpretive freedom I have with this one. If I contextualize it, I imagine that he is sitting in front of his phone, reading articles about his alleged collusion with Russia, getting angrier and angrier, his face redder and redder (orange-er?), until all he can muster is a hastily written “WITCH HUNT!” Or maybe he was reading a library book about the Salem witch trials and got excited. You don’t really know with this one.
Anything I could say about this tweet would detract from it. Enjoy.
The fact that he’s reduced the issue of the total evaporation of thousands of human beings via nuclear warfare to a button measuring contest? Iconic. Subtweeting North Korean totalitarian leader Kim Jong Un? Iconic.
Non-Americans: ask yourself when your president will have his staff draft up a “Game of Thrones” style poster in order to advertise their future policy plans. The answer is never.
I don’t know what it is about this one. The diction of a 16-year-old? The masterful incorporation of two of his hallmark tweet themes – “Crooked Hillary” and unabashed self-love? The fact that it’s only part two of a three part tweet? Our stable genius king slays the losers and haters once again.
“Covfefe” isn’t even a word and it was plastered all over the Fake News Media™ for days after this masterpiece was tweeted. Not only did he captivate the attention of the world with this prematurely-sent tweet, but he brought about world peace by turning it into a fun game for the whole human race to play:
