Perhaps the biggest bummer about Twitter’s new 280-character limit is that it allows the current president to compose tweets like this one
On Monday morning, President Donald Trump hit Twitter to suggest a “FAKE NEWS TROPHY” for whichever news network he deems produces “the most dishonest, corrupt” coverage of his presidency. As usual, Fox was excluded from Trump’s media rage.
In the same tweet, Trump referred to himself as the American people’s favorite president with a parenthetical “(me).” According the most recent Gallup poll, the self-described “favorite” president’s approval rating currently sits at 37 percent.
Naturally the internet jumped all over Trump’s first tweet of the day. Some even have a solid suggestion for Trump’s proposed “FAKE NEWS TROPHY”:
Aren’t there enough journalism awards already? Also: “your favorite President” has record low approval ratings for someone 11 months on the job, so maybe surveys aren’t the measure the President should use here. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/935147410472480769 …
