You tell me.
Fact: as off e-press time, the president has only favorited 45 tweets from his personal account. Another fact: He has not faved in 2017. A third fact: He has only faved from this account once since being elected. The very first fave was all the way back in 2010, of a Mika Brzezinski tweet, is about Trump ties.
He really likes the Trump ties.. I dont know what it is… sitting on train.. let me go ask him.. at least they inspire him to dress up!
Here’s a classic Piers Morgan nonce tweet. At the Diamond Jubilee concert, Alfie Boe sang “O Sole Mio,” and possibly threw in the lyrics to the famous advertisement for the ice cream cone of the same name; I do not care to investigate further. Do you think Trump was watching? Do you think Trump likes Cornettos? I like to imagine he does.
OK, OK, I'll have a bloody cornetto. #jubileeconcert
Then there’s nothing for a while until 2012, when he briefly had a campaign for office but chose to sit back in the peanut gallery to make a lot of comments on the electoral college and . Here’s an unusual one about the Kennedy Compound?
@realDonaldTrump i hope after romney gets elected he surrounds the kennedy compound with wind turbines
One wild card is a cute kid in a car:
First drivers license
Obviously people have since found this fave and asked Debbie how she feels about this. Her response makes it pretty clear!
@MFisherREGATED better then killary
Here’s the one I cant for the life of me understand. Am I misreading this or does this tweet seem…………….critical?????? Of Trump????????? Do you think Trump was doing a Choire Sicha hate-fave?
There’s also a classic, possibly accidental, possibly not, self-fave:
Will be on #Hannity @ 10pE @FoxNews- discussing various subjects including immigration-if elected, we will #BuildTheWall & enforce our laws!
There’s a really good self-fave of a modified retweet (essentially a quote), which expresses, “I love that you love me, thank you for loving me, let me show people I am loved”:
There’s this McKay Coppins tweet about polls, and I genuinely think Trump meant to fave the tweet right before it, where the polls are favoring him, rather than not:
Meanwhile, Washington Post is out with a new 50-state survey that is... less good for Trump. https://t.co/UxnLVEThjU
This one is from before Ivanka Trump took over her own social media or at least pretended to and started tweeting in her own voice. Ivanka in the third person penned an op-ed. Posting a tweet about your op-ed with a collage of your life is actually very Trump-ian. The op-ed is about child care. I would love to read an op-ed by Ivanka’s nannies.
Okay this is the one that gets me real good:
Trivia: At what grade level does your congressman speak? According to the Sunlight Foundation the avg lawmaker speaks at what grade level?
It is a trivia question, stated twice. The answer according to the Sunlight Foundation: “Today’s Congress collectively speaks at a 10.6 grade level, down from 11.5 in 2005.” Donald Trump speaks just below a 6th-grade level. You know what, though? It works.
I cannot account for the faves that were un-faved, but I’m sure they exist. I love to look at people’s faves and speculate what they mean about that person’s state of mind, but also how they view the mysterious purpose of faves, like Facebook posts. What really is a fave? Trump has only faved as many tweets as there have been American presidents. He has never faved one of Melania’s tweets. Who is Debbie Bearce, besides a fierce Trump supporter and Patriots fan? What does it all mean? Barack Obama’s account has ten faves and they read like a laundry list from a bubble: Bill Clinton, Abby Wambach, Shonda Rhimes, The Shriver Report, Wilmer Valderrama, The U.S. Department of Defense, Funny or Die, Nancy Pelosi, Pitchfork, and Hamilton.
