President Donald Trump, it seems, could not help but share the front page of the New York Post declaring him “clean” and the “Dem hoax destroyed” in wake of the Mueller report release.

The tweet came just moments after White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino, once again trying to brand Mar-a-Lago as the southern White House, reported that Trump was in a jolly mood.
I am with the President at the Southern White House, I have never seen him happier!

While the Post’s front page may have tickled Trump, though, the Post was widely panned on blue check Twitter for its Trumpian cover, some who thought it was flat-out embarrassing and deserving of the “special alternate-universe front-page award.”
Others just thought thought it sounded a lot like Fox News.

I get that the Post has a perspective. But Post readers are smarter than this. pic.twitter.com/2vuzqRt725

With Col Allen back at the wheel, it appears the Post is no longer even pretending to speak with ordinary Post readers https://t.co/ZJrlCqjYvl
