But it's safe to say that his tweets have the tendency to, err, land him in hot water.

In the period between the election and his inauguration, for example, Trump attacked more than 30 people and things using his Twitter account, including the New York Times, the musical Hamilton, and Meryl Streep.


People thought the tweet was a lesson in subtweeting and shade.


...but many thought whoever posted the tweet was brave.
