Official US Army Account "Likes" Trump-Mocking Tweet

Following President Trump's tirade yesterday, the twitterati took to their smartphones to mock the man in The Oval Office. One such 'celebrity' was actress Mindy Kaling who laughed "hahahahahaha" adding a meme of her apparent "smartness."

While not particularly damning or comedic, the tweet was more notable for who 'liked' and/or retweeted it.

The U.S. Army's official Twitter account "liked" the tweet on Saturday from actress Mindy Kaling apparently mocking President Trump's claim that he's "like, really smart."

"An operator of the Army’s official Twitter account inadvertently 'liked' a tweet whose content would not be endorsed by the Department of the Army," an Army spokesperson told The Hill.

"As soon as it was brought to our attention, it was immediately corrected."

Additionally, as The Hill notes, controversial tweets from companies, lawmakers and even branches of the government have gained viral attention over the last year. McDonald's last March said its corporate Twitter account had been hacked after a tweet went out mocking Trump.

The National Park Service also went viral for retweeting two unflattering posts about the crowd size at Trump's inauguration in early 2017. Those retweets were investigated to determine whether the account had been hacked.
