In Bob Woodward’s book “Fear” Trump described himself as the Ernest Hemingway of 140 characters, meaning twitter. Everyone has their own opinion and if Trump thinks his writing skills are on the same level as Hemingway, well that’s his right. What should trouble Trump though is the replies to his tweets. This isn’t “Fake News.” All anyone has to do is look at his tweets and replies. I would guess that over Ninety Percent of the replies mock his tweets and words. Where are all the Trumpsters defending his outrageous tweets?
This does not bode well for his reelection hopes or for other republications. The White House should also worry (or may actually be relieved) when he incriminates himself to crimes through his tweets.
How can any sane person read his daily tweets and not see an individual that isn’t “all there?” The Donald’s handlers can’t or won’t constrain his fetish with twitter. Some of his tweets seem to have no thought behind the words.
Trump’s Favorite People and Idol
Trump has used twitter as a bully pulpit to espouse his warped sense of values and to heap praise on his favorite people, Putin and Chairman Kim. Trump also talks up and promotes his idol, himself.
He is quick to take the credit and spread the blame.
Another disturbing aspect of his twitter habits are the policy changes he has twittered without consulting his advisors and staff. Then there was the staff member who found out he was fired through one of the president’s tweets.
I found his tweets to be humorous at first and, actually still do, but tweets are starting to become more disturbing. I believe any action on the 25th amendment to remove the crazy from the White House will largely be based on his tweets. Hemingway would be smiling right now.
