Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is unlike any candidate in American political history. He is brash, vulgar, abrasive, prone to lying, and has absolutely no qualms about using racist rhetoric to fire up his supporters. Trump is also the first presidential candidate to be so cavalier on social media, blasting out numerous incendiary Tweets insulting everyone and anything which he deems to be a threat to his very thin skinned persona. The New York Times took the extraordinary step of combing through all of Trump’s vile words since he announced his candidacy and created a list of every single hostile thing he has ever posted.
The New York Times article has exploded across the Internet, and when all was calculated Trump had Tweeted out TWO FULL PAGES worth of hateful comments. The headline of the article read, “281 people, places and things Donald Trump has insulted on Twitter.” Trump ironically used the word “dishonest” in 25% of his posts, and a derivative of the word fail nearly 50% of the time.
Attempting to showcase the entire collection from the pages of The New York Times is impossible, as the article is too large. However, even viewing the full breadth of what Trump has done should rightly horrify all Americans. The President of the United States is a representative for all citizens, and not just those with whom they agree. Trump’s representation of himself to the world is an embarrassment, and he is unfit to sit in the Oval Office.
