— -- President Donald Trump today retweeted a meme a picture of him gradually blocking an image of former President Obama, with the caption "The best eclipse ever!"

The meme was originally tweeted at Trump by a Twitter user who identifies himself as Jerry Travone, "a YouTube actor and political junkie" and "proud Trump supporter and pushback against liberalism," according to his Twitter bio.

Trump retweeted the meme at 8:33 a.m.

It followed two tweets from Trump criticizing leaders of his own party: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

"I requested that Mitch M & Paul R tie the Debt Ceiling legislation into the popular V.A. Bill (which just passed) for easy approval. They didn't do it so now we have a big deal with Dems holding them up (as usual) on Debt Ceiling approval. Could have been so easy-now a mess!" he wrote in two tweets.

Trump then posted two tweets about the vacillating tone he has taken at several public speeches this week. The first iteration of the tweets misspelled the words "there" and "too," and he subsequently posted the sentences again, correcting the spelling of "there" but not "too."
