To~White House staff, you’re OK with this?
American policy outlined privately by the President and leader of the West through Twitter??
It’s a weekend, and that means that incompetent manchild Donald Trump is out of his damn gourd. Again. And since there is apparently nobody in his entire circle of would-be leaders and so-called brilliant minds who can convince him that the world does not need to know each and every one of his On The Toilet Thoughts, it means we’re getting every one of them.
As we go through these Toilet Thoughts, please keep in mind that this is not normal behavior, for a “president.” During the last presidential administration certain networks had blustering shout-fests over whether a “president” should put his feet on the desk or whether “spicy” mustard on a sandwich was a bridge too f–king far, for the common clay of America’s heartland. Now we get this.
Donald Trump is attacking people for misspelling things? Oh. Oh dear.
Let’s all give a shoutout to little Timmy, 4th grade, for his turn at the pedals of the Donald Trump foreign policy machine. Good job, Timmy, your sick burn was selected as this week’s best so you’ll be getting a certificate signed by chief of staff John Kelly. Keep those sick burns coming, kids, and maybe yours will be featured next!
All of this was, of course, after Donald Trump defended China from his own campaign attacks on their economic actions, which yet again shows the danger of letting a dementia-suffering television-obsessed moron into negotiations with foreign leaders. Donald Trump will reliably regurgitate the opinions and talking points of whoever last made him feel good about himself. Whether in China, to Putin, or among his own staff, give the jackass two scoops of ice cream and praise his innovatively architectural hairstyle and he will come out of the meeting agreeing with whatever you’d like him to.
Roy Moore could give this man a Toblerone and a Hallmark card and Trump would be demanding pedophilia be legalized by the time the next Fox & Friends came on. And it probably wouldn’t take a Toblerone.
On the flipside , out of fairness……
Two days after the American people chose Donald Trump as their next president, he did what he has done so many times before: take to Twitter to express his displeasure. The object of his ire this time was the wave of post-election protests against him around the country. “Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!” he tweeted. Then, a day later, a different message: “Love the fact that the small groups of protesters last night have passion for our great country. We will all come together and be proud!”
The tension between those two messages—the former classic Trump, the latter likely crafted by his team—was a common feature of his presidential campaign, such that his aides “finally wrested away” his Twitter account just days before the election, according to The New York Times. That tension has persisted since the election. In an interview taped on Friday for CBS’ 60 Minutes, Trump insisted of his Twitter use, “I’m going to do it very restrained if I do it at all.” Two days later, before that episode had aired on Sunday night, he went on a Twitter tiradeagainst The New York Times for “their very poor and highly inaccurate coverage of the ‘Trump phenomena,’” calling the paper “dishonest” for reporting on Friday that Trump “has suggested that more countries should acquire nuclear weapons”—a factually accurate statement.
It’s not an absolute certainty that Trump’s erratic Twitter presence will persist once he’s president; one would hope that he’s too busy for that. Then again, Trump is incredibly busy now, as he faces the daunting task of staffing an entire administration despite his having no governmental experience whatsoever (in his meeting with President Barack Obama last week he reportedly “seemed surprised by the scope” of presidential duties). The fact that he is still ranting, amid all of this work, suggests he may not be able to resist the lure of Twitter—a compulsion millions of Americans can sympathize with, but one that’s worrisome, to say the least, in a president.
Which raises the question: What will it be like to have a president who regularly, personally tweets his thoughts and opinions? We saw the power of Trump’s seething tweets when he was the Republican nominee, and the ramifications now are far greater. Trump will be the Twitter President in the worst possible way, giving a whole new meaning to the term “bully pulpit.” And that’s a shame, because his use of Twitter has been politically revolutionary in a way that could have been harnessed for the greater good.
Still unfit for office. No, Republicans just don’t care!
But Blogfactory is still quite curious about Donald Trump and his revelations, and does not necessarily see the U.S. President in the same light as some of the more disenchanted ones. We will wait to see what shapes up~Ed
