This tweet, as promised, gave people something to, er, “pour over.” (Trump later deleted the original, and sent out a corrected tweet.)

Observers of the president doubted that Trump himself wrote this tweet. Indeed, Trump doesn’t always write his own tweets, but they do seem to be the clearest window into his psyche and mood.

And as Trump (or Trump’s tweet writers) explained, all the capitalization does serve a purpose: to emphasize ideas and get his point across to his followers, and the haters and the losers. “Fake News” often gets such treatment, as do words such as “Border,” “Crime,” and “Rigged.” Phrases such as “WITCH HUNT” often get the full caps-lock treatment.
