AceShowbiz - President Donald Trump is no stranger to sparking controversy with his online activities. Recently, POTUS confused "Insecure" fans as well as star Issa Rae after he liked a tweet someone posted during the show's latest episode on Sunday, June 7.
The said tweet was from an account named shiningheaux. Posting a GIF from "The Color Purple" where two characters are sitting in a field of flowers and clapping hands. "This is how I wanted tonight's episode of insecure to end....Damn Molly," wrote the user in the caption.
As if the possibility of Donald watching "Insecure" is not surprising enough, the tweet marks the only tweet that Donald likes as of now. "Holy s**t. Donald Trump watches Insecure?!?!?!" a fan voiced his surprise while tagging Issa's account. Catching wind of the post, Issa responded, "what the f**k is this."
Also chiming in on the matter was Issa's "The Lovebirds" co-star Kumail Nanjiani. "Well I found one thing I have in common with him: we're both big fans of @IssaRae," he tweeted, referring to Donald Trump. Issa replied to the tweet, writing, "Kumail."
Fans were equally baffled with Trump's recent Twitter activity. "He saw two black People in the field and liked it," one said on Instagram. Another one suggested that the president had been "out his orange mind."
"Yoooo what is wrong with this man," a confused user wrote. Either way, a person alluded that despite the controversial things surrounding him, "the man knows good TV."
This arrived after Trump once again drew the ire of public after mentioning George Floyd during his speech about jobs. In his speech on Friday, June 5, Trump suggested that Georg must be happy in heaven now.
"Hopefully, George is looking down right now and saying this is a great thing that's happening for our country," he said. "This is a great day for him, it's a great day for everybody. This is a great day for everybody. This is a great, great day in terms of equality."
Some news outlets, however, falsely reported that Trump suggested George must be happy in heaven because the number of unemployment dropped, while he actually mentioned the late 46-year-old African-American man when talking about the importance of equality in policing. That prompted some internet users to criticize him, with one of them calling him "despicable."
