Unlike other presidents, Donald Trump has used Twitter to speak to the American public on a daily basis during his time in the White House. And though social media works for the 71-year-old POTUS, former President Bill Clinton definitely doesn’t enjoy Donald’s tweets.
During a new interview on CBS Sunday Morning, interviewer Mo Rocca brought up the topic of Donald’s tweets by telling Bill, “President Trump — this is just factual — is fond of personal insults. I mean, he still refers to Mrs. Clinton as ‘Crooked Hillary’ in tweets.” Bill, 71, then replied, “I don’t like all this. I couldn’t be elected anything now ’cause I just don’t like embarrassing people. My mother would have whipped me for five days in a row when I was a little boy if I spent all my time badmouthing people like this.”
Interestingly, Bill is far from the first political figure to critize President Trump’s social media usage. In February, former First Lady Michelle Obama seemingly dissed Donald’s tweets while speaking about her own social media practices. “I still haven’t figured it out because I’m old and I don’t understand most of social media. I tweet, but I have a committee. I don’t just tweet off the top of my head, which I don’t encourage people to do — especially kids.”
“How many kids do you know that the first thing that comes off the top of their head is the first thing they should express? You know? It’s like, ‘Take a minute. Talk to your crew before you put that [out there] and then spell check and check the grammar.'” she continued.
Michelle then added, “I think kids do think telling it like it is and talking off the top of your head [is cool]… [but] that’s never been good. We weren’t raised like that. That’s rude. That’s what you call rude. But yes, I use social media. But I use it like a grown-up.”
