Here’s a phrase I’ve never been happier to take out of my vocabulary: “have you seen what Trump tweeted today?” In honor of Trump’s forced removal from most social media platforms, let’s take a walk down memory lane and rate Trump’s worst tweets.
Starting to get VERY high marks in our handling of the Coronavirus (China Virus), especially when compared to other countries and areas of the world. Now the Vaccines (Plus) are coming, and fast! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 7, 2020
This was one of Trump’s many tweets referring to the COVID virus as the “China Virus” in a racist attempt to blame China for the loss of many Americans. Not only were countless American deaths the work of Trump’s inability to govern, his language sparked anti-Asian violence in America. Just two words tweeted by the president of the United States led many Asian-Americans to fear for their lives.
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 23, 2018
Even my eight-year-old sister throws better temper tantrums than this. I honestly can’t even believe this is a real tweet and not something made up by Saturday Night Live. Poor SNL must’ve run out of content because Trump was stealing it all. Aside from the two-year-old vibes that I get from this tweet, it almost started a third world war. Instead, we got a pandemic that’s about to reach its one-year mark.
Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 9, 2013
Again, if I didn’t see this tweet with my own eyes I would’ve thought that a parody account made it up. Out of all of the roasts Trump could have had his staff come up with for him, this is what he chose? It’s ironic considering that he’s boasting about his wisdom in such small words. But it’s okay, don’t worry if you feel stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.
Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2012
True words of wisdom from the former President of the United States. Glad to see Trump cares about one of his citizens enough to offer relationship advice. I wonder if Robert ever thanked Trump?
It’s freezing and snowing in New York–we need global warming! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 7, 2012
First of all, climate change involves extreme weather conditions on both sides of the spectrum, and Trump doesn’t seem to get that. Global warming is the long-term heating of the Earth, which would do no good for Trump. But don’t worry, Trump, it’s not your fault if you feel stupid or insecure.
Despite the constant negative press covfefe — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 31, 2017
How could anyone forget the origin story to the word “covfefe” and the confusion following its use? No matter how hard I try, I sure can’t.
Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence? — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2014
I’d like to ask the same question.
