This is too strange not to mention. While Trump is posting rancid tirades, infantile insults, and flagrant lies on Twitter, he (or perhaps a rogue aide) is also “Liking“ some very obvious anti-Trump tweets (see pix below).

And finally, he Liked a tweet that says “for one so self-possessed, you aren’t very self-aware. You’ve hurt the GOP as much as anybody.”
