Obama Rips Trump For Lacking ‘Self-Control’ With Tweets

President Obama mocked Donald Trump on Sunday, after The New York Times reported that the Republican nominee’s campaign staff had been filtering and altering his Twitter messages.

“In the last two days, they had so little confidence in his self-control, they said, ‘We’re just going to take away his Twitter,’” the president quipped during his speech at a rally for Hillary Clinton in Kissimmee, Fla. “Now, if somebody can’t handle a Twitter account, they can’t handle the nuclear codes. If somebody starts tweeting at three in the morning because ‘SNL’ made fun of you, then you can’t handle the nuclear codes.”

The Daily Mail pointed out that Obama was referring to Trump’s recent late-night message criticizing how the comedy show makes fun of him. “Watched ‘Saturday Night Live’ hit job on me,” the candidate tweeted. “Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!”

Since Oct. 20, Trump has been sending his tweets to an editor before making them public, according to the Times. The newspaper reported that the nominee’s campaign aides, including Hope Hicks, sent most of the messages from their own phones after reviewing them.

Gawker determined that Trump’s last unaltered tweet, on Oct. 20, stated: “Why didn’t Hillary Clinton announce that she was inappropriately given the debate questions? She secretly used them! Crooked Hillary.”
