Trump Accidentally Gets One Of His Biggest Supporters Kicked Off Twitter
On Monday, Presiden Donald Trump found a bizarre new way to screw up on Twitter, which resulted in one of his biggest fans getting booted from the social media platform.
It all happened after the gullible and narcissistic president retweeted a fake quote Ronald Reagan as having predicted that “Trump would be president someday.” The trouble: Reagan never said any such thing.
But that was just the beginning of the trouble. It turns out, the account in question is also fake. Trump retweeted an obscure account called @reaganbattaiion which was rather ineptly impersonating a well-known conservative Twitter account known as @reaganbattalion.
Because that kind of impersonation is not allowed, Twitter ended up suspending the @reaganbattaiion account. This means that Trump unwittingly got one of his own sycophants kicked off Twitter just by offering praise. Rick Wilson has famously said that everything Trump touches dies, and we can’t think of a more straightforward example.
Yup. Donald Trump’s negligent ineptitude as President of the United States is only rivaled by his negligent ineptitude on Twitter.
