Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was back on Twitter on Monday, offering advice to President Donald Trump before abruptly deleting his own account.

“Yo, POTUS,” his first tweet to the president read. “Even I know to stay away from the notifications section on twitter. [Expletive] will drive you crazy, lead the country and let them hate.”

“Control what you can control and let the rest fall by the wayside,” read the next.

Manziel then deleted his Twitter account which is why neither of the above tweets are embedded.

Trump has long been obsessed with public opinion of him, and in recent days there was a report that the stories of the size of the crowd assembled on the National Mall for his inauguration bothered him deeply.

But Manziel, who has heard his share of public opinion and shaming over the last few years after several public missteps, wants to see Trump step away from his mentions. Manziel made a confessional of sorts on Twitter last week, saying he allowed himself to get “#LostInTheSauce” (aka he was drinking too much).

Thanks to his fellow Texas A&M Aggie Martellus Bennett, Manziel and a friend attended the AFC championship game on Sunday night. Manziel wore a Tom Brady jersey and winter hat with the vintage Pat Patriot logo, and basically live broadcast his experience through his Snapchat account.
