Trump Begins 2019 With All-Caps Rage Tweet
President Trump began 2019 pretty much how he ended 2018, with irrational rants on Twitter.
President Trump began 2019 pretty much the same way he ended 2018, with a deranged Tweetstorm, but this one was unique:
President Donald Trump rung in the new year Tuesday morning with a word of advice for Americans: “Just calm down and enjoy the ride.”
In his second post to Twitter of 2019, Trump wished everyone — “including the haters and the fake news media” — a caps-lock happy new year.
“HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE HATERS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA! 2019 WILL BE A FANTASTIC YEAR FOR THOSE NOT SUFFERING FROM TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME,” the president wrote on Twitter. “JUST CALM DOWN AND ENJOY THE RIDE, GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING FOR OUR COUNTRY!”
Trump’s new year’s message arrived on the 11th day of a partial government shutdown that has no end in sight. The White House has butted heads with Congressional Democrats over funding for the president’s long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, with Trump insisting on money for the wall as a condition for his signature on any legislation to reopen the government.
Here’s the President’s “Happy New Year” Tweet in all it’s bizarre glory:
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE HATERS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA! 2019 WILL BE A FANTASTIC YEAR FOR THOSE NOT SUFFERING FROM TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME. JUST CALM DOWN AND ENJOY THE RIDE, GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING FOR OUR COUNTRY!

As I said on Twitter, “CALM DOWN AND ENJOY THE RIDE” sounds like something you’d hear from a deranged man driving a bus 120mph the wrong way down a highway. In other words, it’s a perfect metaphor for Trumpidian America.
