Honestly, reading Donald Trump's Twitter account is free entertainment. Either he completely misses the point or no one gets him. For a president, he spends a lot of time on Twitter, maybe even a little too much. Not that I'm the one to say but I spend less time on Twitter or just social media overall, and I'm home almost every day, on my computer.

First off, just let the whole 2016 election shit go. It's been almost three years. If you don't like Hillary Clinton, that's fine, neither do I, but stop talking about her. Why is Trump so obsessed with her and those idea of the Democratic party being assholes? Sure, they're not perfect but neither are you or your party. Let it go. Be the bigger person for once and leave that to its own value. 

Secondly, just. Does he ever read anything he says before he hits send? Or does he think that it's okay to just be the president and not be an expert on everyting. A great example was the Notre Dame fire just a few days ago. Most leaders of the world sent their condolences, and that's great. So did Trump, and somehow he thought it would be a good idea to give some advice. No. I'm sure the French firefighters know better than he does. Let alone the fact that any decent firefighter wouldn't drop large amounts of water from above onto a building that has a centuries old roof. Common sense should tell you that's not smart.

Another amzing example of the Notre Dame incident, is what he said a little later. He tweeted about calling the Pope and Emmanuel Macron and also, wishing them happy Easter. Just, who does that. We don't care if you talked with the Pope. I feel bad for the Pope. And Macron. I'm sure they both have better things to do than talk to a president of a foreign country who wants to look good and then talk about it later on Twitter. 

Not to say, who the hell wishes someone happy anything after something that's valuable to their country and culture has suffered from a fire. That's like the president of France calling Trump and wishing him happy September on 9/11, just because why not.

Talking about wishing happy something, remember how Trump managed to wish the people happy Memorial Day. No. People celebrate that day to honor the people who fought in wars and died. There's nothing happy about that. Not to mention, at the same time he made the whole tweet about himself and how the economy is great for everyone. What does that have to do with Memorial Day? I'm not American, but every American always says Memorial Day is important. Why make it about how great the economy is, when it has nothing to do with that, let alone Trump, who if we remember correctly, still is too much of a coward to even fight in a war because of bone spurs. 

Seriously, if someone could do the world a favor and take Trump's phone from him, please do so. Even just for a few days. It would do him some good not to be on Twitter all the time. And apparently, if he's not on Twitter, he's just looking up Game of Thrones memes about himself. You would think the President of the United States had something more important to do, but apparently not.
