Baltimore, MD—Maryland Gov.
John Delaney on Thursday took aim at President Donald Trump’s social media accounts, claiming that the president was “f**king awful” and calling out his supporters.
Delaney posted a series of tweets Thursday morning calling out Trump for his behavior, saying the President was being “unprofessional” and that his tweets were “unhelpful.”
In one tweet, Delaney said, “What I’d like to see is a tweet from @realDonaldTrump that says, ‘This is how you treat people, how you show your contempt for people, and how you insult people.'”
Delaney said in another tweet, “Donald Trump is being unprofessional, disrespectful, and unhelpful.
His tweets are unhelpless.
You need to stand up to him.”
Trump has been criticized by Maryland’s political establishment for his social media use, particularly after the death of Freddie Gray, who died after being transported in a police transport van to a hospital.
Delany tweeted Thursday afternoon that Trump’s “lack of respect” for Maryland’s law enforcement officials was “just as important as his disrespect for our law enforcement officers.”
Delaney also called out Maryland Gov.-elect Larry Hogan for tweeting a picture of the state flag with the words “Trump wants to kill police” and “#FireDelaney.”
Delany said in his tweets that Hogan is a “progressive, progressive, progressive Democrat.”
Delane also said Hogan’s tweet “makes the Governor look bad, and it’s bad for the people of Maryland.”
“The Governor should not be tweeting this picture of his flag with those words, because it makes the Governor seem bad and it gives him the excuse to attack the people he’s supposed to represent,” Delaney tweeted.
“He’s doing exactly the wrong thing.”
Hogan’s spokesperson also told ABC News that the governor is “disappointed in his colleague and his administration for the tweets he sent on Twitter today.”
The tweet in question came in response to Trump tweeting on Thursday afternoon: “I’m proud of our police officers, they’ve been incredible this morning.”
In another tweet later in the day, Hogan said he will “not take any political action until the Trump Administration reverses course on the dangerous and misguided border wall and immigration enforcement measures.”

“The president is an excellent leader, and he knows the problems that our state has and has taken action on them,” Delany said.
“But he needs to understand that the President needs to respect Marylanders first and foremost.”
Delay has called for Hogan to step down from his post as governor in the wake of Trump’s tweets, but Hogan has been defiant and has repeatedly insisted he will stay in the office until the president is removed.
