Just when we start to think POTUS couldn’t possibly prove his lack of intelligence any further, he goes on Twitter. Trump is the first president to spend most of his time in office recklessly tweeting shade over social media, that is unless Obama had an anonymous Twitter handle no one knew about. When he’s not bragging about all of his accomplishments or tweeting his own praise in 140 characters or less, the president is actually taking the time to not only read what his haters have to say but is going out of his way to block them as well.
While Trump certainly doesn’t lack the numbers when it comes to those who troll him, celebrities who call him out on his poor political knowledge and obvious lack of desire to help out anyone who isn’t a rich white American-born male seem to bug him the most. Rather than ignore what people are saying, or better yet take it into consideration when making political decisions, Trump enjoys clicking that lovely block button so he’s no longer bothered by the “losers” who disagree with him. The list of those he has blocked is incredibly long, but these celebrities who’ve gotten the ax from our president’s Twitter feed hardly seem to be bothered.
Chrissy Teigen Drops The Last Straw
Chrissy Teigen has hardly hidden her feelings toward the president, but it seems that when she directed those feelings toward Trump himself, he got a bit upset. Over the summer Trump felt the need to get some things off his chest tweeting, “It’s very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President.” Since Trump’s tweet sounds like a teenage girl feeling betrayed for the first time after finding out her best friend is talking smack about her behind her back, Teigen’s response aligns perfectly with the tone writing, “Lolllllll no one likes you.”
Little did she know it would be her last tweet to the president, as not long after that she shared a screenshot to show that he had blocked her. Hardly devastated, she seemed more surprised that it took him so long. The image was captioned, “After 9 years of hating Donald J Trump, telling him ‘lol no one likes you’ was the straw.” Doesn’t sound like she’ll be rushing to create another Twitter profile just to ensure she doesn’t miss any of his tweets.
Stephen King Reaps What He Sowed
Stephen King, aka the king of horror, is known for being vocal about political issues and has been hilariously harsh with his tweets directed at the president. Since King never really tagged Trump or replied directly to one of his tweets, it’s hard to tell which one of his comments pissed off the president enough to go ahead and block the famous writer. Perhaps it was the tweet which read, “With President Forrest Trump, every day is like a rancid box of chocolates. You never know what kind of shit you’re going to get next.”
If it wasn’t that tweet that got the presidents attention perhaps it was the one where King wrote, “Trump’s tweets in his first hundred days draw a pretty clear portrait: he’s an almost textbook case of narcissistic personality disorder.” or another one where he tweeted, “Donald Trump: A remarkable combination of unhinged and dumb as dirt. Time to start talking impeachment. Really. Enough is enough.” Without being tagged in these, however, Trump must have done some serious digging to come across them. Unless, of course, he happens to be a fan of King’s work and was following his tweets. If that was the case then he’s certainly not a fan anymore. Likely it was this tweet that got King blocked where he wrote, “If Ivanka Trump had grown up in farm country, like some of us, she’d know her father is reaping exactly what he sowed.” King was so upset he could no longer see the president’s Twitter feed that he said, “I may have to kill myself.”
Marina Sirtis Goes To War
Trekkies will recognize Marina Sirtis as Deanna Troi from the Star Trek franchise, while her Twitter followers might know her more for speaking out against inequality. When it comes to Trump and his shenanigans, Sirtis hardly felt the need to keep quiet. In fact, when proof surfaced that Russia had in fact interfered with our country’s last election and Republicans were running around pretending to be shocked, she spoke out against POTUS. Sirtis tweeted, “@realDonaldTrump threatening to go to WAR to deflect from Russiagate!! Willing to let our boys die to save his sorry ass!”
Since Trump has nothing better to do with his life, Sirtis was promptly blocked and able to tweet her disappointment over the occurrence in just six minutes. “I’ve been blocked by our Prez !!” the actress wrote. Apparently, she hurt his feelings.
Rosie O’Donnell Sends Trump Back To Moscow
We all know that Trump and Rosie O’Donnell have had beef for many years. It seems to have started over ten years ago when O’Donnell made comments about him on a talk show in regards to Trump’s decision to allow a beauty pageant winner caught being not-so-ladylike keep her crown on the condition that she goes to rehab. As host of the show, O’Donnell was simply doing her job by discussing current news, but Trump didn’t like some of the comments she made about him going bankrupt. He even said he was going to sue her for her “lies,” but we all know who the true liar is these days.
O’Donnell responded to the same tweet that set off Teigen where Trump said, “It’s very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President.” Considering their history, it’s pretty shocking that Trump hadn’t blocked his nemesis prior to this past summer. The tweet that got her blocked was pretty nasty, to say the least. O’Donnell wrote, “on ur back ? dear god don – the Russians bought their train ticket – u r confused -prostitutes peeed on ur back in Moscow.” Thanks for the visual Rosie.
