Trump has people shaking their heads on Tuesday morning in response to his questionable behavior on Twitter, which isn’t hard to do. To begin, Trump retweeted someone referring to him as a fascist in response to “Fox & Friends” story that said Trump was “seriously considering” firing Joe Arpaio, sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. Just last month, Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt after he was ordered to stop racially profiling Latinos.
In response, Trump said, “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio.” He continued, “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.”
“Fox & Friends” then shared the story on Twitter. A twitter user quoted the tweet, saying, “He’s a fascist, so not unusual.”

Looks like he finally realized what he really is! But in actuality, he didn’t know what the word meant and probably had to look it up in the dictionary. Trump has repeatedly expressed his thoughts about CNN, referring to the network and its story as “fake news.” Since, you know, it doesn’t fit his racist and communist agenda. Last month as many remember, Trump modified and tweeted a video of a wrestling match between himself and CNN. The video showed Trump attacking a figure whose face was covered with a CNN logo. Right after he tweets this mornings snafu, he then retweeted an image that shows a train hitting a CNN reporter. It was captioned, “Fake news can’t stop the Trump train.”
Trump has also been receiving scrutiny for not addressing white supremacy and the Charlottesville tragedy. After saying “racism is evil,” Trump then tweeted again.
Made additional remarks on Charlottesville and realize once again that the #Fake News Media will never be satisfied…truly bad people!

Both Tweets were deleted. We didn’t even know he knew how to deleted a tweet or had enough sense to do so.
