Obama Xmas tweet far more popular than Trump Xmas tweet

For all you non-Twitter types, this stuff is just silly, I'm sure. But the beauty of it is that you have to know it drives Don the Con CRAZY to know that his Christmas message is being overshadowed by his much greater predecessor!

President Donald Trump tweeted a video wishing viewers a “MERRY CHISTMAS!!!” on Monday morning, but a photo that his predecessor, Barack Obama, tweeted a couple hours later was far more popular.

In his tweet, Trump said he and first lady Melania Trump were “delighted to wish America and the entire world a very merry Christmas.” As of late afternoon on Monday, Trump’s tweet had received more than 128,000 likes and more than 34,000 retweets.

Obama’s tweet—a picture of him with his wife and two daughters, standing in front of five adorable children—with the caption, “We wish you joy and peace this holiday season,” got more than 724,000 likes and more than 149,000 tweets.

Trump has 45.1 million followers, less than half of Obama’s 98.2 million.

He’s a salesman and a CON artist who’s heavily into projection. Every time he whines about “fake news” is a tip-off to his own deep-seated phoniness.

... then got distracted by something or other. But, seriously, I have no idea who has more followers on Twitter or who has more friends on Facebook.

I'm just hoping our dear president is having a fine day on the golf course, instead of doing real damage.
