President Trump put his seething insecurities on full display on Twitter yet again today. In what was clearly a blatant effort to convince not only his supporters but himself that he’s doing a great job as president he shared a video touting his so-called “achievements.”
Set to corny music presumably intended to amp the audience up, the video claims that the president’s approval rating is sitting at 51% even though it’s much closer to 41%. It goes on to blast out some statistics about job sector and economic growth which frankly might be much higher if it weren’t for his ill-conceived and disastrous trade war with China.
On top of that, most of this growth can be attributed to President Obama and his successful efforts pulling this nation out of a recession, which a little graph showing the Obama years leading into the Trump years included in the clip accidentally reveals. In typical fashion this president wants all the credit for himself.
Another segment of the video brags about the tax cuts Trump passed, which primarily benefitted the uber-wealthy and which skyrocketed the national deficit. Disgustingly, the video also brags about defunding planned parenthood and slashing regulations. None of these are things that he should be proud of and none of them are things that voters should see as net positives.
The oddest part of the video by far though was the segment about the DOW JONES. The silhouette of the infamous Wall Street bull statue appears behind the statistic and then the animal’s testicles swing down into sight in incredibly unsubtle fashion.
It’s a jarring image and one that would be shocking for any other president to share. Unfortunately, it dovetails all too well with the president’s warped, obsession with masculinity and reveals how childish and crude he really is.
Watch the strange video below.
