Take into account that over the previous 24 hours, Trump has tweeted (and retweeted) 52 issues. In a 30-minute span on Monday evening, he retweeted 24 objects — about 9 completely different subjects and from 15 individuals.
Keep in mind, all the time, that Twitter is the perfect window right into a president’s thoughts we’ve ever had. It’s a real-time reflection of what Trump not solely is considering however what he cares about.
After which there have been the retweets.
Most — 10 — had been centered on discrediting the Mueller investigation and had been despatched by a who’s who of Trump acolytes: Reps. Jim Jordan (Ohio) and Mark Meadows (N.C), Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, and many others.
One other six retweets handled Trump’s still-false accusations that he had been the topic of a spying marketing campaign directed out of the Justice Division (three RTs) or allegations coping with the makes an attempt to discredit the file of anti-Trump analysis collected by former British spy Christopher Steele.
As a peek into the thoughts of the President, it was — even by the irregular requirements by which Trump will get judged — considerably breathtaking. There was a manic-ness within the tweets — a way of lording a victory over your foes whereas fuming at your present state of affairs — that was the form of factor that we simply should not ignore.
“Morning Psycho (Joe), who helped get me elected in 2016 by having me on (free) on a regular basis, has nosedived, too Indignant Dumb and Sick.”
I get that Trump is a “completely different” sort of politician who does not play by “the principles” or no matter. However — and this can be a severe query right here — is anybody, irrespective of your stage of assist for or opposition to Trump, tremendous snug with what the final 24 hours on Twitter have proven us concerning the President?
If that’s the case, how? As a result of what it seems to be wish to me is a collection of erratic half-baked theories, rants and touting of “sure” women and men. Which, final time I checked, is not what being president means.
