On Monday, the president sent out a New Year’s greeting on Twitter that managed to pack lots of self-pity and passive-aggression into an 11-second clip.
“While I’m at the White House working, you’re out there partying tonight. But I don’t blame you,” he said in the tweet. “Enjoy yourselves. We’re going to have a great year. Have a really, really happy new year.”
Although many Americans were busy getting ready for their New Year’s Eve celebrations, some Twitter users were happy to take time out to mock the president mercilessly.
Hmm, dealing with being detained while others are free to come and go. Might be good practice?

Yeah, working on more ways to take credit for the good, and blame others for the bad.

Don’t you mean – As we head into this new year, I wish everyone health, happiness and prosperity.
As President, I pledge to work across the aisle, do away with the wall, and free the families being held at the border. Happy New Year!
That’s what a real leader would have said! pic.twitter.com/ifTjDo3loA

One person did offer a potential resolution the president might want to adopt for 2019.
Best thing you can do for our 2019 is resign TONIGHT.
