Twitter users sought to celebrate the famous firsts of President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday using the hashtag #TrumpFirsts. (There was no shortage of hilarious, snarky comments.) As the hashtag began to trend and the list of Trump's most notable firsts grew longer, #TrumpFirsts tweets began to provide a comedic and sometimes sobering look at the new president-elect's pioneering style of governing.
Although Trump has not yet been president-elect for a full month, his first few weeks preparing for his future gig in the White House have been chock full of firsts. But along with his first Cabinet appointment and television interview, there have been some more unconventional firsts. His first Twitter rant as president-elect. His first instance of backpedaling on campaign promises. His first few phone calls to foreign diplomats. His first foreign policy gaffe.
The number of firsts Trump has brought America while president-elect is hardly surprising when you consider the firsts his presidential campaign managed to establish. In some respects, Trump himself is a first. He's the first person to be elected president with no political or military experience in the presidency's 227-year history, according to Vox. And while Trump won't be America's first divorced president, he will be the nation's first thrice-married president.
Here are 22 #TrumpFirst tweets that mockingly celebrate Trump's first few weeks as president-elect:

Love him or hate him, Trump is clearly a pioneer of some sorts. While his presidential campaign established a new series of election firsts so to have his first few weeks as president-elect. And likely we will see even more unique and unprecedented firsts in Trump's first 100 days in office.
