Twitter is a way for the President to make himself feel food good… about himself. That’s the only plausible explanation for some of his Tweets which have no possible purpose other than to get his base to reflect kudos back at him. Not every Tweet is lacking in substance, but the fact that so many of them are is telling.
I voted for the guy and I’m glad Hillary Clinton didn’t get elected, but sometimes I wonder about his mentality. He really, truly needs positive affirmations on a regular basis in order to function properly. His latest Tweet is just that – a way to fish for positive affirmations.
Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!

The responses so far have been predictable. His staunch supporters are echoing the normal rhetoric. His detractors are clowning him. I’m neither, but Tweets like these make me lean towards the latter.
