Trump Spends Melania’s Birthday Having A Meltdown On Twitter, Demands That “Noble” Prize Winning Journalists Give Their Awards Back

The Adderall or your phone, Donnie. You have to give one up.

Man, there’s a lot to unpack in the latest Twitter screed that Donald Trump blasted across the internet, and it starts with the fact that not only are there approximately 9,000 more important things for him to be doing than tweeting today, but it’s also his wife’s birthday — so if he’s not busy presidenting, he should be hanging out with her.

That is definitely NOT what he is doing.

No, instead of focusing on a global pandemic, an economic downturn, an unemployment disaster bigger than we’ve seen since the 1930s, or even the birthday of his third wife, Trump is tweeting about Russia, and more specifically about journalists who wrote about Russia getting “Noble” Prizes, and how they should return them, and investigations should be launched, and, well… You read it yourself:


UPDATE: It appears Trump has deleted all the offending tweets. Here they are in their original glory:

Okay, so first of all, it’s NOBEL, genius. Not “Noble.”

And secondly, no journalists have ever won a Nobel Prize for their reporting on Russia because there is no Nobel Prize for journalism.

This is a terrible injustice, alright, but not the one he thinks it is. The injustice is that we have a president who doesn’t know the difference between a Nobel Prize and a Pulitzer, can’t spell probably either one, and thinks you can sue a prize-awarding committee or a news outlet for someone getting an award that doesn’t exist.

Obviously when his handlers told him he was making everything worse with his daily press briefings, he sort of lost his mind.

UPDATE TWO: Like his statement about injecting disinfectants, Trump now claims the original tweets were “sarcasm”:

No, Donnie. It doesn’t work when you’re clearly not being sarcastic.
