It's quite obvious that one of Donald Trump's favorite things is Twitter (on the contrary — if you're anything like us — there's a decent chance that one of your least favorite things in the world is President Trump's Twitter... But I digress). He tweets nearly every day, and pretty much at all hours of the day. So, it should come as no surprise that some of his past tweets are coming back to haunt him. When you tweet that much — and as abrasively as he does — there's real meaning to the definition of "not every tweet can be a winner." And it looked like it finally happened: One of his tweets came back to haunt him in a big way.
With the recent replacement of his Chief of Staff, Trump, once again, is doing exactly what he complained about on Twitter when Obama was in the White House.
Since Donald Trump joined Twitter in March 2009, he has tweeted 35.4 thousand times to date.
What you post on the Internet, stays on the Internet, so it was inevitable that Trump's tweets would come back and bite him.
Trump posting tweets that are at odds with his previous tweets is nothing new.
Who can forget these classics:
AGAIN, TO OUR VERY FOOLISH LEADER, DO NOT ATTACK SYRIA - IF YOU DO MANY VERY BAD THINGS WILL HAPPEN & FROM THAT FIGHT THE U.S. GETS NOTHING!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 5, 2013
Obama's complaints about Republicans stopping his agenda are BS since he had full control for two years. He can never take responsibility.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 26, 2012
The latest addition to Trump's Twitter hypocrisy is in reference to the replacement of his Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus.
On Friday Trump tweeted:
I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 28, 2017
...and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 28, 2017
