Depending on the metaphor you want to use, Trump’s tweets either age like fine wine or like milk left out overnight during a global warming-induced heat wave. Nevertheless, the President’s Twitter history has an almost mystical way of predicting the future in an inverted kind of way.
There’s a Reddit page that’s doing an incredible job of collecting some of Trump’s most hypocritical past tweets — over 30,000 of them, and the page is getting updated with contributions daily.
Below are a few examples, with some added context.

As The Atlantic pointed out on Tuesday, an American fighter shot down a Syrian warplane on Sunday, which was “the first time the American military has downed a Syrian aircraft since the start of the civil war in 2011.” This after the U.S. bombed a Syrian government airfield in the wake of an alleged chemical attack carried out by Assad.
