10 Reasons Why Trump’s Twitter Is Politically Incorrect
The man has over 35,000 tweets, engraved deeply on the internet.
I wonder how many of those embedded messages are offensive, objectionable and most of all, unpresidential. When you scroll down the list of presidents, Trump presents a portfolio that does not seem to fall into the same bracket. From his obsession with WrestleMania to reality TV, his temper tantrums and Twitter outbursts have followed him all the way to the White House.
I get it, social media is becoming more and more of a place for expression and less of a source of information, but every day, Mr. President?
Rather than informing us of your erratic emotions, can you please tweet us updates that are relevant to the prestigious title you hold at the moment?
One thing for certain is you have kept it real, @realDonaldTrump. You’ve conveyed how “stupid” people are while you continue to make yourself great — not America.
By no means is this supposed to be taken as bashing our 45th president, but more as a critique and reflection on the person who has helped create a lot of controversy for millions of people.
Trump campaigned on a promise to be politically incorrect. He’s been delivering for years.

1. Everyone else is a liar
I am a very calm person but love tweeting about both scum and positive subjects. Whenever I tweet, some call it a tirade..totally dishonest!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2012
Some call it a tirade. It seems like more than some have an issue with his Twitter. People have even taken further action to get him booted off including famous Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill. There is currently a GoFundMe campaign that seeks to raise $1 billion to become a majority shareholder on Twitter. Once the funds are accomplished, community guidelines will be followed to kick the president off of Twitter, according to Fox News. The campaign so far has raised $83,000.
Who else is down for the cause?

2. He is a bragger
Dopey @Lord_Sugar I'm worth $8 billion and you're worth peanuts…without my show nobody would even know who you are.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 7, 2012
He’s not just a bragger but a blocker too. He has quite the list of Twitter users who don’t agree with him, so he blocks them. He must have learned this from Twitter 101. People have the right to freedom of speech, and in my opinion, our president should be most interested in what we the people have to say. However, by the looks of the lists, he doesn’t seem to really care too much of what we think. If you think about it, out of the 37 million followers, he only follows 45 of them, including seven who are his family members. What does your news feed look like, Trump? It’s all about Trump, not the people, not America. He’s not like our beloved 44th president Barak Obama for example, who has 92 million followers and follows 628,000 Twitter users.

How does he block an organization that has fought for this country?
3. He’s just plain mean
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
So we know that he brags, blocks and bullies — The 3 Bs. Some may find his tweets amusing but after the chuckles, people will find how offensive and inappropriate his tweets really are. Twitter is definitely Trump’s defense mechanism. When he feels threatened or attacked in any way, he takes it to Twitter. When campaigning, media was reporting on his tweets. This is how he was campaigning — by bullying other candidates, not by showing the people how he’s a sophisticated and fitting candidate for president. I could only imagine that 2020 would be the same — if he is able to run, of course.
Jeb Bush just got contact lenses and got rid of the glasses. He wants to look cool, but it's far too late. 1% in Nevada!

4. Everyone else is dumb
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 30, 2013
“You know, I’m like a smart person.” — Donald Trump
Like that time Trump met with the two pastors of two major Presbyterian churches in New York according to foreignpolicy.com.
“I did very, very well with evangelicals in the polls,” he bragged. When the pastors told Trump they weren’t evangelicals, he demanded to know, “what are you then?” They told him they were mainline Presbyterians. “But you’re all Christians.”
The Kicker: Trump himself is Presbyterian. But he seems to think everyone else is dumb. You wouldn’t believe how many tweets you can find in his Twitter archives about calling out those he thinks are dumb. If you don’t believe me, you can check for yourself.
5. He’s in denial
@Toure If you weren't such a dumb racist moron with bad ratings you would know I never filed for bankruptcy,now worth over $10 billion dummy
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2013
Isn’t he the one that is racist?
“I’m the least racist person that you have ever met.”
If you ask him, that’s his response, but if you ask anyone else they’ll tell you different. He’s displayed so many racist and unmindful gestures and of course, all of them are unapologetic. Trump does things to add fuel to the fire.
The latest racist gesture came after the Charlottesville attack. Only after extreme criticism, Trump explained how “racism is evil.” It took him two days to say something that simple, that small, after originally blaming “many sides.” Two fatalities, 35 injuries, and there’s “many sides” to this? All this in support of his white supremacist supporters. I guess Trump needs to be careful with what he says.
6. He thinks you should only be heard if you’re rich
Isn't it crazy, I'm worth billions of dollars, employ thousands of people, and get libeled by moron bloggers who can't afford a suit! WILD.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 19, 2014
Not only is Trump a supporter of racism but classism too. As an over-privileged American who came from status, he doesn’t understand reality. Just because someone can’t afford a suit doesn’t make them any less educated, and just because you have billions doesn’t make you invincible.
“When I look at myself in the first grade, and I look at myself now, I’m basically the same.”
Of course, we see his childish ways, but it makes you think about how he was as a rich kid growing up. Trump’s father was a real estate developer and gave little Donny $14 million to start his business after college.
Sorry, Mr. President. We don’t all have the luxury of hand-me-down millions!
7. He likes to play victim when it’s convenient
I was viciously attacked by Mr. Khan at the Democratic Convention. Am I not allowed to respond? Hillary voted for the Iraq war, not me!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 31, 2016
Many reputable sources including Time, CNN, and Washington Post to name a few all think that Trump plays the victim. He tweets out about how unfairly and unjustifiably everyone treats him. He likes to criticize everyone and everything but when it comes back on him, he cries.
8. He is the divider-in-chief
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone–I love you all, even my many enemies (sometimes!).
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 21, 2012
Happy Veterans Day to ALL, in particular to the haters and losers who have no idea how lucky they are!!!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2013
Happy Father's Day to all, even the haters and losers!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2013
I wish everyone, including the haters and losers, a very happy Easter!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 5, 2015
“@realDonaldTrump: I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th.”
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 12, 2013
He clearly is aware that he has enemies. I’m assuming that he may have had enemies before the presidency, but he pushed it to another level. His latest war seems to be with North Korea, and I mean that literally. He has been tweeting, which means taunting North Korea, clearly not understanding what’s at stake.
Many people, including Republicans and Trump voters, want Trump to stop tweeting. Does he understand that his Twitter is public? He’s giving enemies — not just his enemies but our enemies — insights. Many people are concerned with this but he is still tweeting.
9. He’s hypocritical
Why is Obama playing basketball today? That is why our country is in trouble!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 6, 2012
We all have heard it from him. He would bad-mouth Obama every chance he could get. He criticized him as a president and a citizen of U.S. Trump attacked Obama on his work ethic and promised that if he ran for office, he would not be a president who took vacations. By the end of August, the Republican will have taken 53 days off since his inauguration in January. On the other hand, we, American citizens have had only four paid holidays — less ofr those who balance two-to-three jobs. If that’s not enough, according to independent.co.uk, Trump’s trips have already cost taxpayers around $30 million, including private travel and security guards. Obama’s travel costs came to around $100 million during his eight years as president.
Can anybody say “hypocrite”? Trump has already spent 22 percent of his time as president at golf resorts, yet he criticized Obama for playing basketball.
10. I know I am but what are you?
Obama's '07 speech which @DailyCaller just released not only shows that Obama is a racist but also how the press always covers for him.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 3, 2012
When Trump said that he hasn’t changed since first grade, believe him. He wants the attention but not the bad press. When he receives it, he plays the victim. He criticizes his critics but gets offended when it’s done to him. It’s called the Golden Rule, Trump: Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Republican Jeb Bush said it well:
“Look, I didn’t support Donald Trump. I didn’t vote for him, but he’s our president,” Bush said. “I want him to succeed. I wanted Barack Obama to succeed, and anything that undermines the presidency weakens our ability to solve problems. It’s not about him. It’s about people’s hopes being lifted. And so that’s my advice. Donald, I know you watch CNBC, you’re an avid cable watcher. Get on with it, man. You’re president of the United States. You’ve got great opportunity. The country will rally behind you.”
