Donald Trump's tiny hands love to hover over his keyboard as his beady, glazed eyes watch the news for hours and hours a day. Like a nightmare that never ends, our president has become the Tweeter in Chief--regularly sending out messages of hate, bigotry, and praise (for himself).
Somehow, despite his tweets nearly sending us into nuclear war and inducing too many anxiety attacks to count, we have (nearly) survived the year. We know the year isn't over and Trump could and probably will try to go out with a bang, we're taking som time to celebrate our resilience and looking back at some of his most obnoxious, traumatic, and talked-about tweets of the year. Grab your Life Alert and pat yourself on the back, because this is what we've endured in 2017.
1. Having the audacity to attack Meryl Streep.
\u201cMeryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a.....\u201d
3. Telling UCLA basketball players who were caught shoplifting in China that he should've left them in jail because they didn't thank him for freeing them.
\u201cNow 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!\u201d
\u201cShoplifting is a very big deal in China, as it should be (5-10 years in jail), but not to father LaVar. Should have gotten his son out during my next trip to China instead. China told them why they were released. Very ungrateful!\u201d
\u201cIt wasn\u2019t the White House, it wasn\u2019t the State Department, it wasn\u2019t father LaVar\u2019s so-called people on the ground in China that got his son out of a long term prison sentence - IT WAS ME. Too bad! LaVar is just a poor man\u2019s version of Don King, but without the hair. Just think..\u201d
\u201c...LaVar, you could have spent the next 5 to 10 years during Thanksgiving with your son in China, but no NBA contract to support you. But remember LaVar, shoplifting is NOT a little thing. It\u2019s a really big deal, especially in China. Ungrateful fool!\u201d
8. Suggesting he should make a fake news trophy to award to the news outlet that is the most critical of him as part of his effort to become Tyrant in Chief.
\u201cWe should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!\u201d
10. Trump defending his pro-Russia bias by literally using the line "all the haters and fools."
\u201cWhen will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There always playing politics - bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!\u201d
