Barack Obama, Not Donald Trump Dominates Twitter's List of Most Re-Tweeted Posts of 2017

By Robert Paul Reyes

"As 2017 winds down, President Donald Trump continues to make headlines via his active Twitter account on a near-daily basis. But for all his furious posting, the tweeter-in-chief failed to make Twitter`s lists of most-liked and most-retweeted posts of 2017.

So who did take the No. 1 slots? Those prizes, announced Tuesday, went to former President Barack Obama and-interestingly enough-a teenager on a quest for chicken nuggets.

Former President Barack Obama had the most-liked tweet of the year. His post in response to the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville this summer received 4.6 million likes. Another tweet, which he shared after Senator John McCain`s brain cancer diagnosis was made public, received more than 2 million likes, making it the third most-liked of 2017.

Obama was also responsible for three of the ten most-retweeted tweets of the year. The Charlottesville tweet came in at No. 2, with 1.7 million retweets."

When historians and biographers weigh in on the Donald Trump administration, they will pay scant notice to his ghostwritten books, but they will parse every word in his tweets.

Trump is primarily known for two things: Pussy grabbing and firing off tweets. He starts of each morning, not with prayer or meditation, but with a vitriolic tweet.

You`d think the septuagenarian Tweeter-in-Chief would dominate Twitter`s list of most-liked and most-retweeted posts of 2017.

But it`s another president, the erudite and diplomatic Barack Obama who`s well-represented in Twitter`s list of most-retweeted posts of 2017. This is in spite of the fact that Twitter is tailor-made for grammatically-challenged wicked dimwits.

It should be noted that Obama has 97 million Twitter followers to Trump`s 44 million. Obama rarely tweets while Trump tweets almost as often as he farts, proving that quality is better than quantity.

Trump`s incoherent and nasty tweets may get him impeached or trigger World War III, but Obama`s sincere and uplifting tweets are a promise that America will survive the execrable Trump administration.
