Our president continues to tweet his insecurities to the world. While a recent one had us scratching our heads, the timing of a relevant article may hold the key.
President Donald Trump doesn’t know when to keep his mouth shut. He’s like a kid who throws a temper tantrum when he doesn’t get what he wants, if that kid were a 70-year-old man with bad hair and small hands.
According to a recent tweet, he doesn’t think Mark Cuban has what it takes to be president:
I know Mark Cuban well. He backed me big-time but I wasn't interested in taking all of his calls.He's not smart enough to run for president!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2017
It was sent out despite no evidence of Cuban, who is a successful businessman, saying anything about Trump or wanting to be president. When asked on Twitter what had prompted this tweet from Trump, Cuban replied:
I don't know. But isn't it better for all of us that he is tweeting rather than trying to govern ? https://t.co/953MuEdfeu

Trump has a history of tweeting the moment he sees something he doesn’t like. Yet Cuban hadn’t said a word about him in a while.
The internet went abuzz and discovered what may have ticked Trump off: An article from the New York Post suggesting that Cuban could have a chance at winning the 2020 election.
Twitter responded to the whole situation:
Trump says Mark Cuban isn't "smart enough to run for president." Please. If Trump is smart enough, his stool sample is smart enough. @mcuban

Mark Cuban supported and campaigned for Hillary. Cuban was a Trump critic. Trump isn't all that bright and it's patently obvious he's crazy https://t.co/VWiGJ0FkWt

While it hasn’t been confirmed the article instigated Trump, the timeline of events is awfully fishy.
Regardless of Trump’s reason, his obnoxious tweet was a reminder that we’ve elected a man with the temperament of a toddler to run our country. It was the equivalent of a male primate during mating season, who beats his chest and waives his genitals around while seeking a female.
Except it’s not mating season. Not to mention North Korea is testing missiles and this goon, who hasn’t even been in office a full month, isn’t sitting well with his country on a bigly scale:
“President Trump has the highest disapproval rating of any new president ever polled, according to a new survey. A majority of respondents, 53 percent, disapprove of how Trump is handling his job in the CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, while 44 percent approve.”
The majority of Americans aren’t with you, Trump, but you are a public servant now. We are the ones who will decide your fate in four years, not your bruised ego. Man up and do your job, or kindly step down.
