At 35,000 tweets and counting, Donald Trump has forever altered America’s political landscape, 140 characters at a time. He’s also made his share of digital enemies, who’ve mocked his garish lifestyle, his inability to keep his cabinet members employed, and the overall WTF nature of his presidency.
So, what does the most powerful man in the world do when attacked on Twitter? Nothing less than the “modern day presidential” equivalent of taking his ball home and refusing to play. He blocks detractors without discrimination; the list of famous people Donald Trump has blocked on Twitter pales in comparison to the list of regular citizens on his do not play list. From the Boston Globe:
“He has blocked people like Angela Belcamino, a New York actress who insulted the president’s golf game in August. (And) Eugene Gu, a surgeon resident in Tennessee… was blocked for mocking the president’s penchant for misspellings.”
The lesson: if you aim for the Trump on Twitter, don’t miss, or else you may join this list of celebrities blocked by Trump on Twitter. Tweet wisely, friends.
