Donald Trump unleashed yet another Twitter spree on Thursday morning, during which he lashed out at “fake news,” tagged a retired teacher instead of Pete Buttigieg and declared himself “so great-looking and smart.” He also referred to Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has claimed Native-American ancestry, as a “very nervous and skinny version of Pocahontas.”

It all kicked off with his insistence that the media, or, as he continues to call it, “the fake news,” is “not as important, or as powerful, as social media.” Ahead of Thursday’s White House social media summit, he went on claim that traditional media “lost tremendous credibility” by underestimating his chances to win office in 2016.

From there, he hit out at his political opponents, including Democrats Joe Biden and Buttigieg, who was presumably the intended target of his “Alfred E. Neuman” dig. Trump has compared the young mayor to the Mad magazine mascot, but in his tweet, he misspelled Neumann and tagged an account belonging to a retired teacher and soccer coach. (Trump also tagged the wrong Megan Rapinoe in a rant aimed at the soccer champion two weeks ago.)

And while Trump has frequently used the “Pocahontas” nickname to mock Warren in the past, his next tweet took an even more personal turn as he commented on her appearance, calling her “very nervous and skinny.” By contrast, he declared himself “great-looking and smart, a true stable genius.”

Naturally, these statements are now the talk of Twitter. Many swooped in to defend Warren while taking aim at Trump’s “great-looking and smart” boasts. And then there’s the matter of his math...

Several Trump supporters, meanwhile, called the tweet “funny.”
