President-elect Donald Trump has been (unjustly in my mind) harshly criticized for some of his tweets on twitter. For example, while stumbling around looking for the potty at 3 AM he tweeted about some porn movie. I mean, who hasn’t done that? Then he tweeted that he won the popular vote when he actually lost the popular vote. But in fairness to him what is a couple million votes one way or another? Within the margin of error.While some suggest that he tweets for every real or imagined offense, like a 13 year old school girl, I object. Most 13 year old school girls have more self-control.
But Trump is not the only tweeting president in US history. In my research I learned that other presidents and famous Americans have also tweeted. I think it was Benghazi investigation #22 or #23 that discovered a trove of past presidential tweets that had been deleted from the public record. I have put together a smattering of them just to show that The Donald is hardly alone in his twittering.
From the hidden Benghazi Committee archives.

So, if President #DonaldTrump continues to tweet and twitter his way through the next four years keep in mind that he can explain his in depth policies in only 140 characters . If no one is listening.
