Oh, Donald Trump, it seems you can't even say 'Happy New Year' right. Sigh.
On Monday, the president of the United States sent out a New Year's message to his followers that didn't quite strike the joyful, goodwill to all men vibe that the New Year is synonymous with.
Instead, it came across as somewhat self-pitying, with a dollop of passive aggression. Ah, just what we need to see in 2019!
In a short clip posted to his Twitter account, the president said:
While I’m at the White House working, you’re out there partying tonight. But I don’t blame you.Enjoy yourselves. We’re going to have a great year. Have a really, really happy new year.
While I’m at the White House working, you’re out there partying tonight. But I don’t blame you.
Enjoy yourselves. We’re going to have a great year. Have a really, really happy new year.
Needless to say, people were quick to mock the bizarre message.

@realDonaldTrump Hmm, dealing with being detained while others are free to come and go. Might be good practice? — Declan Cashin (@Declan Cashin)
