President Obama heard the news about Donald Trump‘s Twitter account, and he decided to rib the mogul about it while he was on the stump today for Hillary Clinton.
A recent report has suggested that Trump’s top people have taken his Twitter account away from him over the last few days. The report suggests that Trump’s aides did this so that the mogul would appear more restrained, while also avoiding any unfiltered tweets that might prove problematic or distracting to the political conversation.
As he spoke today in Kissemmee, Florida, Obama ribbed Trump by asking how the mogul can be trusted with nuclear weapons if his campaign staff can’t even trust him with his own social media.
“In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self control, they said: ‘We’re just going to take away your Twitter,'” Obama said to a laughing crowd. “If someone tweets at 2 a.m. because Saturday Night Live made fun of you, you cannot handle the nuclear codes.”
Indeed, Trump’s Twitter account has been unusually measured in the last days of the presidential election, which is a change from how his posts ended up setting off some of his most controversial campaign moments.
