I would like to know a bit more about why you're awake then.
Actually, no I don't. Forget I asked. https://t.co/shs4n777gy

As Twitchy told you, Donald Trump went on an early morning Twitter spree, railing against former Miss Universe Alicia Machado and urging his followers to “check out her sex tape.” He took a lot of heat for it — and deservedly so.
Well, this afternoon, he’s defending his actions:
For those few people knocking me for tweeting at three o'clock in the morning, at least you know I will be there, awake, to answer the call!

Give him credit for trying, at least?
that’s one way to look at it. https://t.co/EfMb5KvEIO

I think the question is whether you will be sane at 3 am. https://t.co/Ng7c0UMHQ1

@realDonaldTrump why do you stay up all night tweeting? it's creepy and not healthy.

Even the smallest of slights sets this guy off. Sad! https://t.co/pRjd9Gns8M

Yes. It was the late hour of the tweets, not how moronic they were, that really concerned me. https://t.co/7M7yR72UdK

It took Trump eight hours to post this comeback because he only just woke up after sleeping off his late night Twitter binge. https://t.co/T2HOjtJigC

Incoherent and beyond fatigued. What could go wrong? https://t.co/tzkQRdeFU7

He'll be awake, but maybe too busy settling old scores on Twitter. https://t.co/UQMOy6lOL1

No, you'll be whacked out of your skull, distracted by tweeting imaginary opponents https://t.co/HCrzqQWJgW

Hey, stop mocking him! Isn’t it nice to know that at 3 a.m., President Trump will be there, awake … thinking about overweight women and porn?
When that 0300 call about Venezuelan fat chicks comes in, The Donald WILL be ready.https://t.co/HXUZDz6pyc

Or to tweet about sex tapes. https://t.co/V13ATSH1mY

President Trump will be vigilant, never sleeping until all Americans know which sex tapes to check out. https://t.co/5VYjdtXfWx

Something for Trump to bear in mind:
Answering the phone isn't the problem, it's what you'll say when you pick up. https://t.co/LKcwhIS6u3
