President Donald Trump praised his “great keyboard warriors” on today as pro-Trump meme makers and social media personalities have prepared for the 2020 presidential election. The commander-in-chief said his army of online supporters were “far more brilliant” than anyone working in the advertising industry.
At the time of writing, his late-night tweet has been liked and retweeted more than 150,000 times. Responding to the president’s post, Trump supporters on the platform shared edited clips of the president performing professional wrestling moves on former Vice President Joe Biden and the CNN network.
Thank you to all of my great Keyboard Warriors. You are better, and far more brilliant, than anyone on Madison Avenue (Ad Agencies). There is nobody like you!

Donald Trump is too far removed from reality to know that “Keyboard Warriors” is supposed to be an insult.
