WATCH | Which Trump tweet garnered the most interactions this week?
Welcome to This Week in Tweets, where we break down the worst and best of POTUS' tweets from his @RealDonaldTrump account.
The tweet that got the most retweets since March 11th was him going after Snoop Dogg for a music video the rapper made that mocked Trump.
Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 15, 2017
That tweet sent Wednesday was retweeted over 39 thousand times.
And also happened to be tied for his “most-replied-to-tweet-this-week" with 42 thousand tweets flying back at him some who agreed and some who didn't.
Like this one from UPI writer Ben Hooper who wanted to make sure Trump knew it was a parody.
You... you know that wasn't really you in that video, right?— Ben Hooper (@BenHooperWrites) March 15, 2017
Does it matter that it was a parody?
So, while Trump has been criticized for doing some very unpresidential things, what if Snoop Dogg or Snoop Lion or whatever he goes by these days made a music video mocking Obama with a gun.
We are making great progress with healthcare. ObamaCare is imploding and will only get worse. Republicans coming together to get job done!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 11, 2017
The other tweet reply “star” of the week was on Obamacare
Honestly, Donald. Haven't you learned your lesson yet? How about you actually LEARN something instead of tweeting hyperbole?— Kelly Scaletta (@KellyScaletta) March 11, 2017
And people weighed in, like Kelly Scaletta, a frequent Trump critic on Twitter.
And the Obamacare tweet getting a lot of responses makes sense. Health care, as much as any issue can be, is the topic de jour right now with the GOP fighting to keep their repeal and replace plan alive, while Dems are working overtime to kill the plan, with the help of some Republicans. Not to mention it’s also former President Obama’s signature policy.
At least Obama can be pleased that the two most interacted tweets this week had his name in them... so he still drives news
