On Wednesday, the news broke that President Donald Trump had an Oval Office meeting with Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey, wherein he proceeded to badger the bearded tech bro over his follower count.
Trump, who boasts close to 60 million Twitter followers—far short of former President Obama’s 106 million-plus—reportedly argued that he’d lost a significant number of followers due to purges targeting conservatives. But Dorsey “had to explain to the president that like other Twitter users, @realDonaldTrump periodically loses followers when the site deletes fake or bot accounts,” reported The Daily Beast.
“That’s right, my friends: the President of the United States is upset because he feels he should have more Twitter followers,” said Trevor Noah. “This is absolutely ridiculous. Like, what’s next? He’s going to complain to Instagram because his thirst traps aren’t blowing up?”
