As much as we mock Donald Trump’s love of tweeting, he is creating a very public digital record. After yesterday’s Russian revelations (unverified as of now), Trump jumps into the fray with a string of tweets.
Also, the all caps things is for losers, Donald. L.O.S.E.R.S.
Not sure how long this shtick will work. “Fake News” is so 2016. It’s also amazing that this temper tantrum is brought to us by a guy who wallowed in President Obama’s birth certificate lies.
His cry of “FAKE NEWS” has an expiration date – and that’s rapidly approaching. Trump thinks he can use his campaign tactics in the Oval Office. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. Be careful what you wish for. You wanted to be the center of attention – you got it.
This one is a doozy.
First, LOL at the outrage over intelligence agencies “leaking” fake news to the public! Remind me again, how many times during the campaign did he cite and praise Wikileaks? He didn’t have a problem with FBI Director, James Comey, either. But now “leaks” are bad.
Second, “One last shot at me”? Oh Donald, this isn’t the last shot. Buckle up, Buttercup, you’re in for a bumpy ride. Were you not paying attention the last 8 years? You played a Yuge role in “taking shots” at President Obama. Why was it okay then, but not now? Yes, yes, I know why the toddler thinks it’s unfair; I know he thinks he’s always the exception – the most special of snowflakes. But, come on! The Bully in Chief can’t take what he dishes out daily? May I suggest he change his behavior? He won’t. He has zero self-awareness.
Third, OMG, no. Nazi Germany? He went Godwin? Talk about desperation. Is he really comparing his “persecution” to that of the Jewish people under Hitler? Is he really doing that? Is he really doing that?
Someone needs to take his phone away. It’s a dangerous weapon in his hands. And for those that say, “Ignore Trump’s tweets, they’re a distraction.” you are wrong. They are our President Elect’s way of communicating – and pretty much his only way of communicating to the American people. I don’t agree with his method, but it’s all we really have to work with. So, go on with your Twitter hatred, but do not ignore that Trump is using Twitter to set policy – a lot of it dangerous and uninformed, but policy nonetheless.
He’s supposed to hold a press conference today (?). We’ll see if that happens.
