Foresight is a wonderful thing

Being president of the United States is, in many ways, a horrendous job. By its very nature, the role involves your popularity rapidly decaying over time, and you only ever start at a high point of having just over half the country behind you anyway.

In the age of Twitter, it’s even worse: not only will citizens moan about your performance, they’ll often address the abuse right to your doorstep. Donald Trump is getting a lot of stick on Twitter for very good reasons, and it may be unconstitutional for him to silence the hecklers. The worst part of all? A lot of the worst heckles are coming from his own @realDonaldTrump account, in a twist straight out of a horror movie. Inevitably, they're retweeted back at him at every turn reminding him that being president is actually quite a hard job when you're the one making the decisions.

Donald Trump doesn’t bother deleting many tweets, Covfefe aside. As such, the many rambling utterings he made criticising Obama’s presidency seem alarmingly relevant in the present. Here’s a far from exhaustive selection.

Perhaps President Trump should consider helping crowd fund his own Twitter ban. Then he can finally stop being his own worst critic.
