One can always rely on the internet to dredge up the tiniest semblance of a gaffe, drape it with disrepute and unload it skilfully on social media.
There was quite a lot to do on Father’s Day. Wish the lovable fathers, post endearing updates, check out others’ updates and, well, pick on America’s beloved President Donald Trump.
Tweeple couldn’t help pointing out the sharp difference between the tweets posted by the Trumps and the Obamas on the occasion of Father’s Day. While Barack Obama expressed how proud he is to be Sasha and Malia’s dad, President Trump tweeted this:
The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt. Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm,..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2017
And two more tweets in the course of the day:
...massive regulation cuts, 36 new legislative bills signed, great new S.C.Justice, and Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2017
The new Rasmussen Poll, one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election, just out with a Trump 50% Approval Rating.That's higher than O's #'s!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 18, 2017
Now, you can pretty much imagine what Trump unleashed. While we firmly believe that to each his own...we couldn’t resist a sneak peek at all that transpired!
The difference between Trump's tweets today & Obama's is staggering. One of insecurity, one of love on Father's Day. It makes me truly sad.— Christie (@Christie_D22) June 18, 2017
On Father's day, I just want to observe that Obama is an amazingly great father, and trump is an absolutely terrible father. #FathersDay— Spry Guy (@SpryGuy) June 18, 2017
The Ones That The Should-Haves Dragged In!
No one was spared. First Lady Melania Trump was dragged in too. Her tweet wishing the POTUS a joyful father’s day was juxtaposed with Michelle Obama’s elaborate Father’s Day tweet.
The One With Love And Warmth
The One With (Possible) Love And Warmth...But A Tweet Of Few Words
A hashtag, a heart and an auto-tag when you type in the first letter?
NOT Twitter’s idea of an authentic display of love.
What’s more, while Michelle Obama was greeted with ‘too-cute-for-words’ GIFs, Melania’s tweet was flooded with reactions that ranged from disapproval to mockery. Some even pointed out that there is some respite in the fact that this, at least, wasn’t plagiarised.
Last but not least, Ivanka Trump was targeted too, for not wishing her dad at the very first go. Her first tweet thanked her husband for being a loving father to her kids and her second one, which came after some time, wished President Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, a happy father’s day.
While we could show you some of those retaliatory tweets too, we decided to abstain. There’s enough hate out there already without us subjecting you to a fresh deluge.
We just wanted to keep you in the loop, and that’s that. It is up to you to take or not take sides now!
