    Trump tweet in Farsi 'the most liked Persian tweet' in history of Twitter

    On Saturday, protesters in the country called upon Khamenei to step down after Iran admitted to shooting down a commercial airliner on which dozens of Iranian citizens were traveling. That evening, the president sent out a tweet in Farsi, saying that he stands with their efforts.

    “To the brave and suffering Iranian people: I have stood with you since the beginning of my presidency and my government will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely. Your courage is inspiring,” Trump wrote

    I'm thinking he didn't really write that himself. He had someone else write it for him. Now if he would just have someone else write the tweets he sends out in English we would all be better off.

    Likely he does. They follow a formula and have a pattern that Trump could never consistently reproduce himself. Here is the pattern

    blah blah blahhh
    blah blah
    Blah ...bla ...bla ..blah!!!!!!
    Terrible!

    I'm not being facetious. It's like Hoku poetry.
    They are really not his style.

    There are some that are "official" tweets written by his staff, but the blather comes straight from him. I have mixed feelings about it. Presidents usually take the high road and allow proxies to handle responses to criticism. Trump responds on his own. And it is seldom pretty.

    Kudos to whomever in the Trump administration even KNEW that "Farsi" was the language of Iran! I'm really impressed Trump would accidentally hire someone with that level of knowledge of the world!

    I'm always surprised at how juvenile and stupid his "counterpunches" come across as. He's not the sharpest tool in the shed but you'd think he'd HAVE to have developed some understanding that he's not that bright and he should utilize OTHERS to draft his responses more often!

    But that's what a life lived without ever having to take responsibility for mistakes will get you!

    I’m impressed when he manages a tweet with proper English.

    The courage being shown by the Christians of Iran is amazing.

    Didn't take long for them to come up with that one.
    If Trump did something good --
    it couldn't have been Trump.

    Their hatred will only grow until November. If Trump wins, I'll be here to watch all the fireworks that will no doubt happen afterwards.

    Side note: Have you noticed how those who claim that the Iranian people who hated their government had become united with their government because Trump killed their beloved General? Well, now that the government there has admitted lying about shooting down the airliner, the people are now even more against their government leaders. But Trump's critics seem rather quiet about that for some reason.

    No, it wasn't Trump who wrote that tweet in Farsi because he has the intellectual speech level of a fourth-grader. He can barely communicate in coherent sentences in English with 280 characters or less without misspelling basic words like hamburgers, ridiculous, honor, and smoking (What are you smocking? A brief guide to Trump's many misspellings). He once said he wanted to promote lasting peach in Israel. He also said the Continental Army took over airports during the Revolutionary War.

    The picture below shows a letter that Trump wrote to an English teacher. He sent her this letter. As you can see, the teacher corrected his spelling and his grammar. She sent the letter back to him.

    How gracious of her to thank the president for writing a letter to her by pointing out every flaw she sees and then send it back to him! I sure wouldn't want to be a friend/pen pal of hers. I'd hear nuthing back from her except what she tinks is wrong about what I sez.

    Yes, it is an unpresidented act when he manages to speak in coherent sentences in proper English.

    That’s a cop-out.

    People criticise Trump because he’s next to useless....not because they hate him. Some may do, but it’s soooo much easier to simply recognise his complete unsuitability for the position that was bestowed upon him.
