Donald Trump: The Cry-Bully

The Cry BullyOn May 4, 2009, @realDonaldTrump toddled out into our world. Back then, Twitter was still seen as a buggy curiosity making grandiose promises that no one took seriously. So too was Donald Trump. When the two met, there were no sparks, at least none right away. @realDonaldTrump emitted two polite toot-toots of self-promotion, and then rested for four days.

“Be sure to tune in and watch Donald Trump on Late Night with David Letterman as he presents the Top Ten List tonight!”

“Donald Trump will be appearing on The View tomorrow morning to discuss Celebrity Apprentice and his new book Think Like a Champion!”
