President Donald Trump dubbed himself Twitter's “favorite President” in a tweet on Saturday that prompted an outpouring of support for former President Obama, with many commentators tweeting images of Obama tagged #favoritepresident.
In a seemingly veiled retort, Pete Souza, a former Obama staffer, tweeted a picture of a beaming Obama holding a child’s hand.
Others thanked Trump, tongue-in-cheek, for confirming that the former president had indeed done nothing wrong.
It’s not the first time Trump has referred to himself as America’s favorite president. He wrote last year that media outlets had dishonestly covered “Your Favorite President (me).”
