Twitter followers piled on President Donald Trump after unearthing his 2012 tweet ripping then-President Barack Obama for having three “chief of staffs” (the correct term is chiefs of staff) in three years.
Trump, who’s finishing up the second year of his presidency, plans to name his third chief of staff next week to replace John Kelly, who’s heading out the door. Kelly replaced Reince Priebus in July 2017 after Priebus served just six months.
Trump groused in his tweet that the upheaval in Obama’s White House was “part of the reason” Obama couldn’t “manage to pass his agenda.”
3 Chief of Staffs in less than 3 years of being President: Part of the reason why @BarackObama can't manage to pass his agenda.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 10, 2012
As some wags indicated, there’s an awkward Trump tweet for every occasion.

I've lost count of the number of Chiefs of Staff (Note correction: "Chiefs") and communications directors and other personnel you've churned in the past 13 months.— Alan Neff (@AlanNeff) February 28, 2018

I have a 4 year old jar of mayonnaise in the back of my fridge that has aged better than this tweet. 🤣— This isn’t Funny Anymore (@mayday20201) December 8, 2018
