Donald Trump has the best Twitter followers.

Most of the President’s social media following (31 million strong) doesn’t seem to mind when he tweets made up words or alternative facts — probably because they’re non-voting, non-thinking robots.

But since the Dumpster is already the most powerful man in the world, we all know he doubled his following with bots because he’s obsessed with vanity numbers — like his “landslide” election win.

All together now: Sad!!!!!
