Trump Caught 'Liking' Bizarre Tweet About Rape, Orgies and Sex Trafficking at His Model Agency

Just when you thought the president's Twitter feed couldn't get any more deplorable.

President Donald Trump is still glued to Twitter, if his “favorites” are any indication.

At 11:44pm Thursday evening, Trump clicked the “heart” on a tweet from a user called Alexander Hamilton. The tweet accused the president of rape and conducting orgies with the models at his former agency, Trump Model Management.

The Hamilton account wondered if perhaps Trump’s “thumb was trembling” and the favorite was an accident, which was briefly listed as the president's 13th “favorite." No other tweet was favorited.

The favorite was quickly undone and no other activity took place on the Trump account. Over the past several months, the Trump Twitter account has been blocking many of those who have been critical of him. It's not clear if Trump did that or delegated it to a staffer.

His existing favorites highlight those from his family, including one tweet from daughter and senior advisor Ivanka about a meeting in Sant’Egidio in which she learned about “remarkable work with survivors of human trafficking and with those still suffering.” He has also liked tweets from First Lady Melania Trump about the Easter Egg Roll and the time she met children at the American International School in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Raw Story reached out to the person behind the account for comment, but did not hear back.
