Did Donald Trump have a case of the Mondays?
The Twitterer-in-Chief, who devours social media before breakfast on a daily basis, was uncharacteristically mute the morning of Feb. 13. In fact, he didn’t Tweet until 10:53 a.m.
Yes, believe it or not, that’s actually a record for our sitting president!
Perhaps even more impressive is that when Trump finally did tweet, he didn’t say anything derogatory or untrue.
Kind of boring, eh?
Not even a month into his presidency, Trump is already famous for explosive 3 a.m. Twitter rants on subjects ranging from Alec Baldwin to the “failing New York Times.” The media certainly noticed when Trump DIDN’T tweet in the early morning hours of Feb. 13th — CNN actually gave the headline homepage real estate alongside actual, meaningful news stories.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall in CNN’s editorial meeting. We’re guessing the runner-up headline was “Evidence shows Trump might have sat through entire intelligence briefing.” In fact, Trump was scheduled to speak with Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and South African President Jacob Zuma prior to his tweet about Justin Trudeau — so he might have actually done his job!
One step at a time. But on the morning of Feb. 13, Americans finally (maybe?) had a normally functioning president (but probably not).
