You could mark your calendars for the U.S. midterm election on Tuesday, November 6, or you could just head to Twitter, where former Celebrity Apprentice host, Trump University founder, and sitting U.S. President of the United States Donald Trump loves to make his thoughts on the upcoming election known.
It's a pivotal time for our country, which — since the Home Alone 2 cameo-haver took office — has seen white nationalists storm the University of Virginia, countless shooting massacres, and one controversial Supreme Court nominee confirmed.
But, hey — if you can't laugh at Trump's ridiculous tweets...well, you might as well be crying over the monumental impact that this midterm election will have on America.

"Twitter has removed many people from my account and, more importantly, they have seemingly done something that makes it much harder to join - they have stifled growth to a point where it is obvious to all. A few weeks ago it was a Rocket Ship, now it is a Blimp! Total Bias?"
Trump tweets about his Twitter followers plateauing, despite having over 55 million followers.

"....Richard Cordray will let you down, just like he did when he destroyed the government agency that he ran. Clone of Pocahontas, that’s not for Ohio. Mike has my Total Endorsement!"
The woman that Trump refers to as "Pocahontas" is Elizabeth Warren, and the name is a reference to her purported Cherokee ancestry. Pocahontas was a Native American, but not a Cherokee, nor does it make any sense to call anyone other than historical figure Pocahontas by this name. Not sure what the point of capitalizing "Total" and "Endorsement" is, either.

Trump tweeted this message in association with an ad about Luis Bracamontes, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who was convicted of murder. In the 30-second spot is a claim that Democrats let Bracamontes into the country "and let him stay." According to the New York Times, Bracamontes was deported by former U.S. President Bill Clinton (a Democrat) and again by the George W. Bush administration. In addition to presenting a patently false claim, the ad was criticized for racism and drew comparisons to the 1988 Willie Hortan ad.
