To say that Donald Trump loves his Twitter account would, among others things, qualify for the “understatement of the year” category devoted solely to the Republican nominee. From journalists figuring out when Trump is, and isn’t, tweeting, to reports his campaign keeps trying and failing to calm his incessant urge to insult others, the Donald just can’t quit his 140-character bullhorn. And with 33.8 thousand undeleted tweets and counting, it seems the New York real estate mogul’s devotion to the social media platform won’t fade anytime soon.
Hence why The New York Times compiled and published a two-page spread detailing every single person, place and thing Trump has ever insulted on Twitter. What’s more, the compendium’s digital counterpart offers readers an interactive tool with which they can comb through, find and click on links to the listed tweets themselves:
Since declaring his candidacy for president last June, Donald Trump has used Twitter to lob insults at presidential candidates, journalists, news organizations, nations, a Neil Young song and even a lectern in the Oval Office. We know this because we’ve read, tagged and quoted them all. Below, a directory of sorts, with links to the original tweets. Insults within the last 60 days are highlighted.
Highlights include Samuel L. Jackson’s golf swing, John Kasich’s ad guy and what one could — with enough time and caffeine — turn into a book of poetry dedicated to digs at Hillary Clinton. For more details about who Trump has bullied on Twitter throughout the account’s existence, check out The New York Times.
