Obama Taunts Trump About Campaign Taking Away His Twitter Account

President Obama mocked Trump on reports that his campaign took his Twitter account away from him.

At a rally in Kissimmee, Florida today, President Obama took a moment to take a shot at Donald Trump and reports that his campaign took away his Twitter account.

Aides to Mr. Trump have finally wrested away the Twitter account that he used to colorfully — and often counterproductively — savage his rivals. But offline, Mr. Trump still privately muses about all of the ways he will punish his enemies after Election Day, including a threat to fund a “super PAC” with vengeance as its core mission.

"If somebody can't handle a Twitter account, they can't handle the nuclear codes," Obama taunted.

He went on. "If somebody starts tweeting at 3 in the morning because SNL made fun of you, then you can't handle the nuclear codes!"

It's funny, but it's also not funny, because President Obama is right on the mark here. You should read that entire report. It's ridiculous. Trump has to be handled like an ADHD five-year old!
