Over the past few weeks, Donald Trump’s Twitter habits have somehow found a way to get even stranger. He’s never been a competent speller, but now he’s forgetting how to spell words that he used to know how to spell correctly. He’s also begun tweeting bizarre fragments such as “her her” and “shoild” and “nade s” that shouldn’t even be possible to get past autocorrect. But now he’s gone and done something even weirder.
As Donald Trump’s tweeting has gotten even more incompetent, his handlers have had to delete and replace his tweets more frequently. Perhaps that explains why, after Trump tweeted a particularly bizarre tweet this evening – ending with “….BUT THE BEST IS YET TO COME!” – it was then deleted for no apparent reason. Ten minutes later the exact same thread was tweeted again, also without explanation.
So what’s going on? Nothing competent, that’s for sure. The responses to Trump’s “THE BEST IS YET TO COME” outburst weren’t exactly kind – particularly after the second time he tweeted it. Responses were along the lines of “Yes, your removal from office” and “You being imprisoned will be the best.”
This comes barely an hour after Donald Trump had a complete meltdown on Twitter about how stupid it would be for New York City to build a sea wall. Wait, isn’t Trump the guy who loves walls? Apparently not, as he tried to taunt New Yorkers by telling them, “Sorry, you’ll just have to get your mops & buckets ready!” Of course when Trump goes to prison, he’ll probably be the one having to use a mop and bucket all day.
