Some of Donald Trumps best tweets. Sad!

When Donald Trump became President, many people - many Republicans specifically - predicted that, once he settled into the job, he would raise his level of discourse out of the gutter, that he would become, as the phrase went, more "presidential". Two years into his tenure, we are still waiting for some improvement in his tone. If anything, it has deteriorated still further.
Part of the problem, of course, is his reliance on Twitter as a means of communication. Twitter is a platform that seems specifically designed for the petty put-down, for the puerile and ill-considered barb, and that's pretty much what we have been getting, with the added dimension of deliberate mistakes and bald-faced lies. It's not a pretty collection, but let's remind ourselves of some of his greatest hits (this list courtesy of CheatSheet):
  • Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but she attacked me last night at the Golden Globes. She is a .... (Jan. 2017)
  • SEE YOU IN COURT [aimed at the US Court of Appeals!], THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE. (Feb. 2017)
  • The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned! (Feb. 2017)
  • Our southern border is unsecure. I am the only one that can fix it, nobody else has the guts to even talk about it. (Jul. 2015)
  • Watched protests yesterday, but was under the impression that we had just had an election! Why didn't these people vote? Celebs hurt cause badly. (Jan. 2017)
  • How amazing, the State Heath Director who verified copies of Obama's "birth certificate" died in plane crash today. All others lived. (Dec. 2013)
  • Nobody should be allowed the burn the American flag - if they do, there must be consequences - perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail! (Nov. 2016)
  • Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball the father of LiAngelo is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail! (Nov. 2017)
  • Any negative polls are fake news, just like the CNN, ABC, NBC polls in the election. Sorry, people want border security and extreme vetting. (Feb. 2017)
  • You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people. (Jun. 2017)
  • The same people who did the phony election polls, and were so wrong, are now doing approval rating polls. They are rigged just like before. (Jan 2017)
  • It's freezing and snowing in New York -- we need global warming! (Nov. 2012)
  • In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally. (Nov. 2016)
  • Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office "begging" for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them) is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED. (Dec. 2017)
  • Obama is, without question, the WORST EVER PRESIDENT. I predict he will now do something really bad and totally stupid to show manhood. (Jun. 2014)
  • Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our cities is committed by blacks and hispanics - a tough subject - must be discussed. (Jun. 2013)
  • 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. (May 2013)
  • Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help. (Sep. 2017)
  • 26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military - only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when the put men & women together? (Jan. 2016)
  • VIDEO: Muslim migrant beats up Dutch boy on crutches! (Nov. 2017)
Of course there are many, many more that could, and perhaps should, be added to this list. A few more from various other lists, in no particular order:
  • I refuse to call Megyn Kelly a bimbo because that would not be politically correct. Instead I will only call her a lightweight reporter. (Jan, 2016)
  • Happy #CincoDeMayo. The best taco bowls.are made in Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics! (May 2016)

  • @michellemalkin: You were born stupid! (Mar. 2013)

  • I'm a conservative, but the weakness of conservatives is that they destroy each other, whereas liberals unite to win. (Apr. 2015)
  • The so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous cases, planned out by liberal activists. Sad! (Feb. 2017)
  • How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred electoral process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! (Mar. 2017)
  • The how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came ... to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from facelift. I said no! (Jun. 2017)

  • I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke. (Oct. 2012)
  • Michael Wolff is a total loser who made up stories in order to sell this really boring and untruthful book. He used Sloppy Steve Bannon, who cried when he got fired and begged for his job. Now Sloppy Steve has been dumped by almost everyone. Too bad! (Jan, 2018)
  • Despite the constant negative press covfefe. (May 2017)
  • Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well-publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Session Justice Department. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff... (Sep. 2018)
This stuff just writes itself...
