Congressional Speech: Trump Sets New Twitter Record

USA Today

The U.S. has never had a president who loves to tweet as much as President Trump and the numbers from his first speech to Congress show that Twitter loves him back.

Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday was the most tweeted State of the Union or joint session speech ever with 3 million tweets compared to the previous record of 2.6 million, according to Twitter spokesman Nick Pacilio. Former president Barack Obama’s 2015 State of the Union speech was the old record holder.

The top-tweeted moment was when Trump called on Congress “to repeal and replace Obamacare.” Second was, “We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens” — the widow of fallen Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens — and the third was “We all bleed the same blood. We all salute the same flag. And we are all made by the same God.”

And here is the most re-tweeted tweet of the night:

Trump went high, but the vile left was and still is going low. Click on Trump’s Tweet (near the top works for me) and read the comments. Many are from decent Americans, but others … read them and learn.

  1. As I always ask them in conversations: what exactly has he enacted that is so dangerous to America. The reply is nearly always a futuristic senerio, something about ‘later on’ or it will ‘lead to’. In other words, no valid reason. It’s pretty much turning on the light and watching roaches scatter. Not because they fear the light but they’re terrified of being stepped upon.

    • That is so true. I’ve been thinking the same thing for a few weeks re a lady’s non-politically-related blog I had been reading for 2-years. Then near election time & continuing, in her tweets (& a few blog comments) she turned into a hysterical raging leftard lunatic like the WORST of the worst!!

      And most everything she is hyperventilating over in her tweets are things that HAVE NOT EVEN OCCURRED & probably won’t. She is foul-mouthed, angry, full of venom, & “TERRIFIED” of all the things Trump is SUPPOSEDLY GOING TO CAUSE (future). I tell you, it’s insane & what a shocker to see her Real Self after 2-years of having no idea! (She obviously watches the Idiot Box all day long & repeats exactly whatever inflammatory OPINIONS they have.)
