On Sunday night, President Donald Trump fired off a string of tweets from his infamous @realDonaldTrump account that was positive, patriotic, and, dare we say, presidential.
The country and world were shocked to see the messages, especially in the same weekend in which he made multiple crude and inflammatory attacks at the hosts of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ and posted an edited video in which he bodyslams “CNN.”
Take a look at the shocking tweets, which have since been deleted.
Hmm, definitely something off there.
Sure enough, at Monday morning’s White House press briefing, Deputy White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders began with a prepared statement:
“The President’s Twitter account was hacked last evening by an unknown assailant,” Huckabee Sanders read.
“In no way, shape, or form do these three abhorrent tweets represent the thoughts or feelings of the President,” she continued. “The White House is currently investigating who was behind the hack and will take extra steps to make sure these types of messages aren’t posted again.”
Welp, so much for that. Just when we thought Trump was making the long-awaited “pivot” and had officially “become president,” it turns out it was all too good to be true.
Very disappointing. Or should we say, “Sad!”
