Tweet of the Day: 'Handwriting Analyst' Donald Trump on Jack Lew

More

The combed-cover celebrity announces another area of expertise -- and takes a step toward conciliation with the White House.

You just can't make this stuff up. Last week when President Obama nominated Jack Lew for Treasury secretary, Lew's preposterous signature was widely remarked upon -- including by the president himself.

Now real-estate-mogul-cum-presidential-candidate-cum-national laughingstock Donald Trump has weighed in. Who knew he was a handwriting analyst? (Of course, this claim only makes him more risible, but never mind that.)

It's interesting that Trump seems almost positive on Lew. Prior to his alleged bid for the Republican presidential nomination, he'd shown ideological flexibility over the years, and this tweet follows another in which he turned his guns on the GOP:

Can we hope for a Trump bid for the Democratic nomation in 2016?
