Trevor Noah recapped President Donald Trump’s long list of things making him angry, starting with his Twitter followers.

Being president of the United States is a very stressful position. It requires attention on everything from economic conditions to national security to…Twitter followers. At least that’s the case for President Trump as revealed by The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.

Trump’s love of Twitter is no secret. In fact, it seems like most of the country is numb to (most of) what the president tweets. In addition to live-tweeting Fox News shows or retweeting questionable accounts, President Trump does his best to use Twitter to spin the news in his favor.

We also know that the president is prone to exaggeration. His golf abilities, personal wealth, and crowd sizes have all been inflated at one time or another. So it’s not surprising that Trump is fixated on his number of followers.

As of April 15, Trump’s account has just under 60 million followers. Not bad at all. But it does put him behind names like Kim Kardashian, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Barack Obama. That last one probably stings Trump the most as Obama boasts over 105 million followers. It could be part of the reason Trump met with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey at the White House, as recapped by Trevor Noah:

So it looks like just days after it was proven that the election was influenced in part by a disinformation campaign on social media. President Trump has made it a priority. The problem is that he wants to know why he doesn’t have more followers and not how a democratic election can be upended by Facebook and Twitter.

Trevor Noah does his best to explain the president’s mindset by examining Trump’s other targets that he feels have slighted him. Those include the press ahead of the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as well as Democratic member of Congress in the wake of the Mueller report.

If President Trump and his administration need an alternative to the WHCD, then may we suggest Samantha Bee’s second “Not the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.” Sadly, Last Night On has no recommendations on how to address the White House’s issues with Congress.

Trevor Noah does another excellent job of pointing out the absurdity and hypocrisy behind Trump’s actions. If he’s not careful, the Daily Show host could find himself on the receiving end of another Twitter rant from the president!
