Twitter – and the Governator – Heap Mockery on Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice Insecurities

Twitter – and the Governator – Heap Mockery on Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice Insecurities

Donald Trump is hugely insecure (or should we say ‘bigly’?) and perhaps those insecurities are well-deserved, to judge from Twitter’s response to this morning’s batch of Trump tweets. We have already seen Evan McMullin state the simple truth that “.@realDonaldTrump will soon be the most powerful and profoundly insecure man in America.”

It was left to the Governator himself to post the best response of all to Trump’s bottomless insecurities:
