Donald Trump doesn’t seem to be enjoying himself very much these days. As his poll numbers get worse and his scandals get uglier and his impeachment becomes more of a thing, he’s increasingly been reduced to acting like a poorly adjusted child. Now he finds himself going off the deep end about one of the world’s most well adjusted children.
Some Twitter troll known as “Kellie” posted this horrible tweet about teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg: ‘What an actress! “I should be in school.’ She’s getting the best education socialism can steal. I won’t be held hostage by someone who just got a learner’s permit. Sorry kiddo! Tell Al to try again.” Donald Trump quoted this garbage, adding “Keep up the great work Kellie!”
Trump’s endorsement of such a berserk attack on a child, and his invocation of a troll to make it happen, were received so poorly that the name “Kellie” began trending on Twitter as everyone pushed back against him.
Thus far this morning Donald Trump has posted dozens of tweets and retweets in an increasingly frantic effort at pushing back against what’s happening to him. But there’s no stopping what’s going on here. The tide has turned against Trump, the floodgates are open, and he’s drowning in a cesspool of his own making. The fact that he’s jealously attacking an accomplished teenage girl on his way down? That tells you all you need to know.
