Let’s turn the clock back to 2012. Hurricane Sandy was slapping the shit out of NYC. Jessica Simpson struggled to deal with Papa Joe’s twink addiction. And our current president Donald Trump felt necessary to chime in about a celebrity couple’s tragic breakup. He’s grown so much since then.
Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson starred as a starcrossed and sparkly vampire couple in a seemingly endless film franchise called Twilight in the early 2010s. They were also in a poorly concealed “secret” relationship which kaboomed when Kristen was papped letting a director attend to her needs in a mini-Cooper. Our future president, who was merely a reality television star back then, was firmly on Team Edward. He hates cheating (he’s been romancing the Twitter bird for a looonnngg time)!
Here’s an example of some of the important historical documents that will be on display in the Trump Presidential Library.
Variety (via People) spoke to Kristen at the Sundance Film Festival where she’s selling her directorial debut, Come Swim, and she was asked about Trumpasaurus Wrecks tweeting about her back in the day.
“He was mad at me a couple years ago, really obsessed with me a couple years ago, which is f—ing crazy,” Stewart told Variety in Park City, Utah as part of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, just hours after the swearing-in ceremony in the nation’s capital.
“I can’t even understand it. I literally cannot even understand it. It’s such far-out concept that I don’t want to believe that actually is happening. It’s insane,” added the Come Swim star, who does not have a Twitter account.
Kristen also realizes that daring to mention Trump in a negative light aloud is like tempting Candyman to make an appearance in your life.
“At that point, he was just, like, a reality star. I had no reference. It wasn’t like really a thing,” Stewart said about how the 45th president’s tweets make her feel in present day. “But in retrospect, somebody reminded me of that and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re right!’ He’s probably, like, going to tweet about this.”
Oh get over yourself, Kristen! He’s the POTUS now! The leader of the free world has far more important things to do than scold an actress on Twitter!
