Tweeter in Chief

His Own #1 Fan

While the country mourned the loss of Sen. John McCain, Trump used Twitter to keep the attention on himself.

Despite the influx of media coverage this week around the late Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) funeral, Trump acted a bit out of character by staying relatively quiet on the subject.

But that doesn’t mean he was quiet. He just turned up the tweet volume on … well, himself. “Trump” was the president’s most-tweeted word this past week, with 13 tweets. He also had eight tweets that included the word “president.” To top it off, three of the five tweets that Trump retweeted this week were his own. Talk about being your own biggest cheerleader.

This doesn’t mean Trump ignored the McCain funeral services though. During her eulogy on Saturday, Meghan McCain said, “The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great.” Later that evening, Trump tweeted: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!,” likely in response to Meghan’s comments.
