    A flurry of explosive tweets copied by POTUS dwelled on a number of prominent Democrats, including  Stacy Abrams, who once ran for Georgia governor, and Trump’s main challenger from 2016, Hillary Clinton.

    Apparently spending quite a deal of his time scrolling through his Twitter feed over the weekend, Donald Trump reposted a lot, with the most coming from John Stahl, who had a failed run at representing California's 52nd District in 2012.

    One of his retweets made fun of Democrat and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacy Abrams' weight, another mocked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, suggesting she should have her mouth taped shut, and a third trashed Hillary Clinton, Trump's 2016 challenger, as a "skank".

    A great many netizens deemed this as being well over the top:

    "The GOP told Senators not to defend him. They're going to lose the sSenate", one commented, with another lashing out at POTUS, calling him a "misogynist".

    Democratic supporters instantly took aim at Republicans over their "zero reaction" to what they considered to be hugely hateful posts.

    "My question is WTF? So JrH these days. World leader my a**", another wedged in seething.
    "Can anyone say God help us!”, someone else sighed, with others expressing similar outrage over POTUS’ flurry of derisive retweets:

    Some picked up on the timing of the retweets - Memorial Day weekend dedicated to fallen military personnel and now those who've perished during the pandemic - and reports that President Donald Trump played his first round of golf in months this past Saturday.
