Verified Twitter is angry that President Donald Trump had the nerve to clap for himself when lines from his State of the Union address led to applause from the crowd.

According to these Twitter hot takes, Trump clapping for himself was just proof of his narcissism.

Paul Kane, a congressional reporter for The Washington Post, admitted that the clapping was a “trivial” issue, but still wanted to know if he could get an official count on the number of times Trump clapped.

A Gizmodo blogger insisted that Trump, “sees people clapping and thinks, ‘Okay, it’s clap time I did good.'”
