Donald Trump — a man of many words — has been blowing up the Twitter scene since before his presidency. It’s been almost a year since Trump came into office. To recognize that, we at the Clog have created a list of Trump’s most memorable tweets. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane:
2017 New Year’s wishes
Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 31, 2016
Calling out to his “many enemies” is a common thread in his tweets, and this tweet is perhaps the epitome of the “I love my haters” motto. And the “Love!” at the end just adds a little extra something to the tweet. Love!
The now-deleted “Despite the constant negative press covfefe” tweet
We can’t forget about the word that brought the world of Twitter together: covfefe. Tweeted one night by President Trump, this grammatical error transcended into a unifying movement that resulted in many laughs and most importantly, many memes.
When the weather was to cold in New York
It’s freezing and snowing in New York–we need global warming!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 7, 2012
Ah yes, that is a great solution. As you may or may not be able to tell, our president is well informed about climate change. If we may famously quote President Trump himself, that statement is “wrong.”
2016 Cinco de Mayo
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 5, 2016
Accompanied with a photo of himself with a taco bowl, this one is a major eye roll. #pleasestop
His declaration of having a high IQ
Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure,it’s not your fault
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 9, 2013
It’s okay, we don’t.
President Trump was (maybe still is) Team Edward
Everyone knows I am right that Robert Pattinson should dump Kristen Stewart. In a couple of years, he will thank me. Be smart, Robert.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2012
Team Edward or Team Jacob? Clearly Trump is a part of Team Edward. He expresses his Team Edward pride through a series of tweets, all of which contain snippets of dating advice from the presidential love guru, Mr. Donald Trump, himself. Who else would any sane person turn to for dating advice besides President Trump?
The Diet Coke dilemna
I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 14, 2012
Although he expressed his distaste for the beverage through a series of tweets, as he does with anything, he has been spotted drinking Diet Coke. The controversy with this one comes from his confusion on how diet coke actually works. Thank you for being so concerned with the obesity issue in this country, Mr. President.
An aesthetic issue for our environment
It’s Friday. How many bald eagles did wind turbines kill today? They are an environmental & aesthetic disaster.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 24, 2012
This was thankfully written on a Friday. The other half of the tweet sparks from his (slightly weird) obsession with birds and wind turbines. We guess you just can’t trust them. (We’re talking about the wind turbines, of course).
Another (now-deleted) spelling blunder
Heel or heal? This one was a part of a triad of attempts to correct his grammatical errors and the whole world was there to see it. Like covfefe (see above), this tweet led to a weird unification of the Twitter world through memes. It took him a couple of tries but, don’t worry, he finally got it right in the end.
Negative polls are fake news
Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 6, 2017
Any negative news is apparently fake news.
As you can see, there’s a lot of things we can learn from these oh-so memorable tweets:
- Watch out for fake news.
- Love your haters.
- Exclamation marks make things extra spicy!
- Team Edward all the way.
- Typos are great.
Just in case you forgot, this man is, indeed, the president of the United States. So here’s to a future of more memorable tweets and let the countdown to 2020 begin! Covfefe!
