People Are Freaking Out After McDonald’s Tweets That President Trump a “Disgusting Excuse of a President”
Another day, another strange story involving President Trump. He may be on unfriendly terms with Saturday Night Live, Rosie O’Donnell, and even his former biggest LGBTQ supporter Caitlyn Jenner (to name just a few of his foes), but now a possible feud has sparked between the President and McDonald’s, and folks are freaking out.
Today at 9:15am, someone tweeted an, er, unfavorable opinion of President Trump from the official McDonald’s Twitter account, saying, “@realDonaldTrump You are actually a disgusting excuse of a President and we would love to have @BarackObama back, also you have tiny hands.” Ouch.
The post was even pinned to the top of their profile where it earned a helluva lot of attention in the mere 20 minutes it was up before being deleted.
Natch, McDonald’s is claiming that their Twitter account was hacked…
Twitter notified us that our account was compromised. We deleted the tweet, secured our account and are now investigating this.

However it happened, Twitter is having a field day over it, with some folks loving it as hard as others are hating it, and still more who are just getting a good chuckle out of the super weird sitch…
