For the past week, Donald Trump has been subject to 24/7 supervision by his handlers during his trip to Asia. During that time, the Trump-Russia scandal has grown exponentially uglier, and he’s had no real way of blowing off steam. This morning he made an ignorant comment essentially pledging his allegiance to Vladimir Putin. This evening he’s finally regained control of his Twitter account and… yeah, there are no proper words to describe the psychotic meltdown he’s having right now.
First Trump tweeted “When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There always playing politics – bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!” Wait, what? He’s calling Americans haters and fools? Bad move, Trump, and that’s before getting to the part where he used “there” instead of “they’re.” But then he kept tweeting, and he just kept making it worse.
Trump went on to tweet “Does the Fake News Media remember when Crooked Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, was begging Russia to be our friend with the misspelled reset button? Obama tried also, but he had zero chemistry with Putin.” Wait, now he’s criticizing Hillary because she misspelled a Russian word? Trump’s own tweets reveal that he can’t spell several English words (to/too, heal/heel, hear by, etc). This man is borderline illiterate But wait, there’s more, because he kept tweeting.
Donald Trump ended up tweeting “Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!” These tweets are very much being posted to Donald Trump’s official Twitter-verified @realdonaldtrump account, but they almost read like a parody account. Is it possible Trump’s account has been hacked, or is he truly in the midst of a psychotic meltdown?
