Twitter Imagines What Trump Is Doing Instead of Live-Tweeting the Comey Hearing

”I like to imagine Trump is playing with a fidget spinner while watching this and trying desperately not to tweet“

President Donald Trump must have been dying to tweet during fired FBI director James Comey’s testimony on Thursday. Many observers wondered aloud how the country’s Twitter-prolific president restrained himself from the social media platform during the day’s widely anticipate Senate Intelligence Committee hearing.

Trump’s Twitter absence during the hearing sparked the imaginations of several onlookers.

“I like to imagine Trump is playing with a fidget spinner while watching this and trying desperately not to tweet,” said one user. Another praised the people advising the president not to tweet, saying, “Let’s hear it for the real heroes of the day: the aides currently restraining the President from tweeting.” Another: “Trump’s not tweeting. They must have hid his phone in a salad.”

Others took to Twitter to egg Trump on. “I’ve never wanted Trump to tweet so badly in my entire life,” actor Chris Evans tweeted. In another post, he said “Tweet, Donald… Tweet,” along with a GIF of Charles Xavier from “X-Men.”

Here’s a roundup of some of the funniest tweets making fun of Trump’s Twitter-restraint.
