A Minnesota Senator woke up Saturday morning to complain about former President Donald J. Trump’s “mean tweets,” while President Joe Biden governs by executive order.
“Woke up on a Saturday and didn’t have to respond to a mean tweet from the White House. Feels weird but good. I’m going to make some toast instead,” Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) said on Twitter.

Klobuchar, who is infamous for treating her staff poorly and eating salad with a comb, is apparently still holding a grudge over Trump’s Twitter habits.
The former president was banned from the microblogging site about two weeks before his presidency ended.
While Big Tech silenced Trump, President Biden has spent his first several days governing by executive order.
On his first day in office alone, Biden signed executive orders to strengthen the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for illegal alien children brought to America at a young age by their illegal alien parents, reverse Trump’s order to ban travel from terrorist hotbeds, end border wall construction, cancel the permitting for the Keystone XL pipeline, costing Americans jobs, create “an equitable data working group to make sure federal data reflects the country’s diverse makeup and direct the Office of Management and Budget to allocate more federal resources to underserved communities,” direct every federal agency to “review its state of racial equity,” effectively end women’s sports by forcing states to allow biological males to compete in female athletics, and order an end to Trump’s 1776 initiative.
In the days that followed, President Biden has signed no fewer than 22 more executive orders, including orders to strengthen Obamacare, increase the bargaining power of federal employees, end private prisons, and “elevating climate change as a national security concern.”
Biden even suggested that Trump was a “dictator” on the campaign trail for Trump’s executive actions, which by comparison, already pale to Biden’s own executive actions.
The flurry of orders stand in sharp contrast to candidate-Biden’s statements. “I have this strange notion, we are a democracy … if you can’t get the votes … you can’t [legislate] by executive order unless you’re a dictator. We’re a democracy. We need consensus” he said in one October appearance.
