Michelle Obama made a sly dig Wednesday at Donald Trump, stating, “You don’t have to tweet every thought.” Claiming she was not thinking about anyone in particular, during her discussion at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago with the poet Elizabeth Alexander, the former first lady said people didn’t need to share everything on social media.
“Most of your first initial thoughts are not worthy of the light of day,” The Hill reported Obama as saying, adding: “This whole ‘tell it like it is’ business, that’s nonsense. You don’t tweet every thought, and I’m not talking about anybody in particular. I’m talking about us all, because everybody does that.”
Although Obama claimed she was not specifically thinking of any particular person, President Donald Trump is widely known as the Twitterer-in-chief, having been a voracious user of the social media platform during his campaign and since he has taken office.
