Donald Trump’s Twitter timeline is always a goldmine of stupidity, and looking through his tweets will make you feel like a friggin’ genius. We’re not sure why conservatives propped up a man who can’t read to serve in the highest seat in the land, but here we are while facing a national crisis. From potty jokes to misspellings, it’s all there. Reading through Trump’s tweets each day will suck IQ points out of your head.

What caught the Internet’s attention was when Trump quoted a New York Times piece from Feb. 1 that he didn’t realize was critical of him, but the word “king” was in it` captured the former reality show star’s attention, apparently. The author was quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson. Trump, of course, changed the quote from “a king” to “the king.”


Trump obviously didn’t read the article that contains this little gem: “Impeachment will always be a stain on Mr. Trump’s historical record, a reality that has stung him in private, according to some close to him.”

Twitter users noticed that, too.

Do you think it's ok Jeff Bezos doesn't pay taxes, takes a trip to space and still asks the US taxpayer for $10B?

The “emboldened” part is precisely what we’ve all been worried about with President Ranty following his acquittal by Senate Republicans in a trial that disallowed witnesses and documents. Everything is playing out as predicted, unfortunately. And now we have the COVID-19 pandemic that has brought our country’s economy to a standstill, and Trump thinks it’s his job to shitpost on Twitter.
