Trump Has A New Enemy: Twitter's 'Trending Topics'

Donald Trump is really losing his grip on reality. On Monday night he tweeted a bananas tweet, accusing Twitter algorithms of being "illegal" because so many of them are anti-Trump. I am not kidding. Here is his tweet:

For those who do not have a law degree - or any legal training - a social media algorithm is not "illegal." It just tracks trends in what is being tweeted about most at that exact moment. There is no bias, it is just a screenshot in time of what is most talked about by users. Too bad that so much of Trump related tweets are negative.

Twitter tried to enlighten Trump:

Donald Trump, Whiner in Chief. There is nothing too small for him to whine about. Nothing too petty. Nothing too unimportant. 150,000 people have died, his personal Gestapo are attacking peaceful protestors nationwide and Russia put a bounty on American soldiers...and this giant man-baby is whining about Twitter trending topics that hurt his delicate little feelings.

Sad.
