We Now Know Trump's Bizarre Method for Liking Tweets and It's Definitely Weirder than Anything You're Imagining
President Donald Trump tweets an average of 12 times per day. His often stream-of-consciousness use of the social media platform has become one of the defining aspects of his presidency. He announces resignations and firings. He attacks lawmakers, journalists, and communities. He perpetuates conspiracy theories and false talking points.
But what he doesn't do often is "like" other people's tweets. He's only liked four tweets using his personal account, one of which is his own.
Meghan McCain Just Slammed Lindsey Graham After He Doubled Down on Donald Trump's Attacks on Dem Congresswomen
In 2015, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-NC) was clear on how he felt about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
"He's a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot," Graham said. "He doesn't represent my party. He doesn't represents the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for."
Donald Trump Just Tweeted His Disapproval Rating Instead of His Approval Rating and People Are Dragging Him Hard
President Donald Trump takes a lot of criticism for the time he spends focused on his own popularity. On the day after his inauguration, former White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, stated the President's biggest concern lay with the comparatively small size of his crowd rather than the new duties Trump just assumed as a national leader.
As such, Trump often tweets about favorable poll results. On the evening after a mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, the President focused once again on his own public approval numbers.
On Monday during a White House ceremony dubbed the "Salute to the Heroes", President Donald Trump sought to pay tribute to members of the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agencies of the Department of Homeland Security.
Not all went according to plan however when the President, while attempting to honor one of the CBP Border Patrol officers, Trump called the Hispanic man— identified as Adrian Anzaldua—to the podium while joking that the officer was not nervous. Trump enthusiastically told the gathered crowd:
Stephanie Clifford, otherwise known as adult film actress Stormy Daniels, filed another lawsuit against President Donald Trump on Monday in New York federal court. The suit alleges the president defamed Clifford and cites an April Tweet Trump posted.
After Clifford and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, released a sketch of a man they allege threatened Clifford in 2011, telling her in a confrontation in Las Vegas to "leave Mr. Trump alone", Trump called the announcement "a con job".
Anyone following President Donald Trump's Twitter account over the last several days witnessed a flurry of Tweets regarding former FBI director James Comey and his memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.
In an announcement issued regarding a full pardon for Scooter Libby, former adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney, President Donald Trump wrote:
I don’t know Mr. Libby, but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly. Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life.”
The president's reasoning for this pardon harkens back to the Donald Trump of the 2016 presidential campaign. During his run for the White House, Trump often referred to rumors, innuendo and false statements as things he had heard. It's a justification he's been using for years.
