Donald Trump's Twitter account might have been hacked Thursday, or he might have been sincerely quoting Lil Wayne when he tweeted, "These hoes think they classy, well that's the class I'm skippen." It's so hard to tell with The Donald.
Trump had spent most of his Twitter day going through his usual routine -- tweeting trash talk at rivals, promoting Trump-branded products, and giving Republicans banal advice about immigration in his Mitt Romney-sanctioned role as conservative thought leader. But at 11:41a.m. eastern time, he tweeted a line from the Will.I.Am song "Scream & Shout (Remix)". The tweet is gone now, which leaves the Twitter world to wonder: Did the Donald's poor little intern get confused by his TweetDeck columns and accidentally tweeted a personal tweet from his boss's account? Did the folks who hacked Burger King and Jeep put Trump's 2 million followers in their sights? We prefer to think of Trump rapping along with Lil Wayne and being unable to resist tweeting the lyrics. Classy is one of his absolute favorite words, after all.
Update: This is no laughing matter, folks. Trump was "seriously hacked," but seems to have regained control of the account.
My Twitter has been seriously hacked--- and we are looking for the perpetrators.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2013
Perps, you've been warned.
