Donald Trump just couldn’t wish all Americans a Happy New Year and leave it at that. Instead, he had to give a shout out to his enemies, haters and “the very dishonest fake news media.” The former reality show star had just one job to do and he couldn’t do it.
“As our Country rapidly grows stronger and smarter, I want to wish all of my friends, supporters, enemies, haters, and even the very dishonest Fake News Media, a Happy and Healthy New Year,” President Angry Pants tweeted. “2018 will be a great year for America!”

Trump’s tweet went down about as welll as you’d expect.
What kind of president sends a New Year’s greeting like this despicable, petty, infantile gibberish? Only Trump! His lack of decency won’t even allow him to rise above the gutter long enough to wish the American citizens a happy new year!

Your impeachment would make 2018 a great year for America, but I’ll also accept regaining control of Congress.

Do you hear yourself talk? When you have to include that many people that hate you you have to wonder? Why do the they all hate me?

You can’t just say happy new year?

Here’s Trump’s New Year’s Eve tweet from 2016.
Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!

This is nothing new for Trump. He’s been doing this for years.

Trump’s holiday tweets are clearly not presidential.
How long did he work at Hallmark before becoming President?

He’s always been like this . . . the only difference is that in the last few years, his filter has been breaking down.

Who, apart from a teenager uses the term haters?

So, to all the people who voted for this a–hole thinking he would change once he got into power, you were wrong! 70-year-old men don’t change and now he’s a year older.
