Trump Voters Beg Him: Stop Tweeting

Trump supporters stage interventions on Twitter… to get him off Twitter

“I don’t like tweeting,” Donald Trump said Wednesday. “I have other things I could be doing.”

Some of the people who voted for him strongly agree.

Trump told “Fox & Friends” that he uses tweets to correct the record because the news media is dishonest. But that doesn’t explain why he tweets about “Saturday Night Live.” Or Meryl Streep. Or “Hamilton.” A few self-declared Trump voters have staged interventions on Twitter… to get him off Twitter.

“I love you, I voted for you, I believe in you,” one Twitter user, Stephanie Combiths, tweeted after Trump lashed out at Meryl Streep for her criticism of him at the Golden Globes. “But I wish you’d stop tweeting abt celebs. #itsnotworthit #itlooksbad”

Of course, Trump still has legions of supporters who love his tweets. But as he becomes president on Friday — and the job cuts into his tweeting time — he may want to listen to the fans who want him to put down his phone and get to work.

Here are a few of their tweets, arranged by subjects they want him to stop tweeting about.
