tweets from 1989

There's been a meme going around Twitter called Tweets from 1989. If you go to and search for posts with the hashtag #tweetsfrom1989 you'll find a bunch of hilarious 140-character comments people might have made 21 years ago.

I made fun of his political ambitions in the paper, the Fordham University newspaper I was one of the editors of.
