The conservative magazine, which has been critical of the president, will publish its final issue on Monday.
“The pathetic and dishonest Weekly Standard, run by failed prognosticator Bill Kristol (who, like many others, never had a clue), is flat broke and out of business,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “Too bad. May it rest in peace!”

The Weekly Standard lasted a lot longer than these businesses run by a guy who doesn’t have a clue:
Trump Hotels & Casinos Resorts
Trump Taj Mahal
Donald J. Trump Foundation
Trump Model Management

How many people businesses have you bankrupted again? And how many people did you scam as you did it? @BillKristol has more integrity in his little finger than you have in your entire body.

Others slammed the president for rejoicing in “the joblessness of several fine journalists ten days before Christmas.”
Nothing like rejoicing in the loss of a critical conservative voice and the joblessness of several fine journalists ten days before Christmas. https://t.co/mmjZmZXXsl

Yeah.. Totally normal for a President of the United States to be celebrating the demise of a media company!
He is a true beacon of press freedom.https://t.co/XjOrKMoseR

Ladies & Gents, I give you the POTUS celebrating and revelling in the business failure of a company!
People are losing their jobs and instead of sympathy, he takes the opportunity to hate on them, gloating at this closure. And he wonders why people hate on him. This is why! https://t.co/Xcw7dDUu8u

There is no way donnie knows the word prognosticator (even if he did, he certainly wouldn’t know how to spell it correctly). #WhoDis
