Donald Trump retweeted a message Saturday in which the White House social media director said that he had never seen the president happier — and Twitter followers were scratching their heads.
Given the president’s rage tweets earlier, some wondered what Trump was smoking.
Dan Scavino, who once worked for Trump as his caddie, posted his message about the president’s mood after relaxing with his boss at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
That characterization seemed suspiciously chill for Trump, who had lashed special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in U.S. politics in a series of ugly tweets Friday and Saturday. Trump’s posts included attacks on aides and others who made him look bad with their accounts to investigators about how he conducts himself in office.
Some quipped that Trump’s mood may have changed due to him getting into the spirit of 420 — celebrations of marijuana that now occur annually on April 20.

Taking advantage of 4/20?— Melissa Quinn Amour (@MelissaAmour72) April 21, 2019
Don’t let Pence catch you naughty boys ❤️❤️💋— Ivan (@FosterA69) April 20, 2019
Perhaps he's found the true meaning of 4/20...— Fed Up Republican (@FedUpGOPer) April 21, 2019
Dan, you're trying to hard. He's freaking and we all know it.— Wendy Wills (@wwills11) April 21, 2019
Quippy weed tweets aside, lots of people responding to the Scavino retweet went absolutely bonkers over the reference to Mar-a-Lago — The Trump-owned property where it costs $200,000 to become a member and where guests pay as much as $2,000 to stay for the night — as the “Southern White House.” The name alone evokes for many infuriating reminders of the “White House of the South” during the Confederacy, which was located in Richmond, Virginia.
First of all, Dan, that is not the Southern White House. Second, I'm sure he is happy because he is not in jail....when he is in jail, he won't be as happy.— Lynda Gage (@Lynda_Gage) April 20, 2019
There is no Southern White House. There is a carnival Kissing Booth where people pay the President to see and talk to him privately while we pay for it all. #msnbc— NoctilucentCloud (@NoctilucentClou) April 20, 2019
That private, pay to play, club owned by 45 is not and never will be a Southern White House. The only White House is the People's House in Washington, DC.— Laura Jarvis (@laura_lgjarvis) April 20, 2019

There is only one White House. It’s not in Florida.— kcbyrne (@kcbyrne) April 21, 2019
It's not the "Southern White House," it's Trump's private club where he lines his pockets with taxpayers' money while members, guests and Chinese spies buy access and influence.— Julie Laumann (@Otpor17) April 21, 2019
For the right price, you can even run the VA – no experience or military service required!
Trump was apparently still chill by the end of the day Saturday when he touted via Twitter what he called a “good night of television” — Fox News programs.
