Trump creates more problems for himself on twitter
To paraphrase what Henry II cries out (at least in the Becket Film version) “Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest?” some of his White House staff are probably saying “Will no one rid us of the troublesome tweeter?”
Over and over again Trump tweets stuff that gets him in trouble. Look at what he tweeted today:
Jun 5, 2017 08:35:00 AM – .@foxandfriends Dems are taking forever to approve my people, including Ambassadors. They are nothing but OBSTRUCTIONISTS! Want approvals.
Jun 5, 2017 05:44:18 AM – In any event we are EXTREME VETTING people coming into the U.S. in order to help keep our country safe. The courts are slow and political!
Jun 5, 2017 05:37:59 AM – The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court – & seek much tougher version!
Jun 5, 2017 05:29:08 AM – The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, NOT THE WATERED DOWN, POLITICALLY CORRECT VERSION THEY SUBMITTED TO S.C.
JUN 5, 2017 05:25:02 AM – PEOPLE, THE LAWYERS AND THE COURTS CAN CALL IT WHATEVER THEY WANT, BUT I AM CALLING IT WHAT WE NEED AND WHAT IT IS, A TRAVEL BAN!
We read that there was an attempt to get White House lawyers to vet Trump’s tweets. But that’s a lost cause. Old TrumpDonald is up at 5:25 AM and tweeting. Like any good farmer who gets up early in the morning, Old TrumpDonald is up early on his funny farm and getting his work done before the sun comes up.
Today he is making sure that he lets the Supreme Court know that he really meant to set up a TRAVEL BAN. As he so proudly declares “THE LAWYERS AND THE COURTS CAN CALL IT WHATEVER THEY WANT, BUT I AM CALLING IT WHAT WE NEED AND WHAT IT IS, A TRAVEL BAN!” And of course his lawyers who will be charged with making his case before the Supreme Court (if the Supreme Court decides to take up the case) will just love his next tweet 4 minutes later at 5:29 AM “NOT THE WATERED DOWN, POLITICALLY CORRECT VERSION THEY SUBMITTED TO S.C.” So in case the judges want to know what he meant, he has clarified that the version submitted to the Supreme Court was “watered down” and “politically correct” and does not represent what he really wanted to do.
Donald just thinks he is smarter than anyone else (“I have a great brain”), doesn’t need to read anything or think about anything. If he says it, he is correct and everyone else is wrong. And so he contaminates anything he touches and infects all those who get anywhere near him. And so, McMaster, once considered a person who “speaks truth to power” has been defiled as has anyone else with even a modicum of honor.
Well Donald, this behavior may endear you to the 37% and it may enhance the ratings for “Celebrity Press Conference” but it will not do anything positive for the country. And while you may be getting good ratings from your 37%ers for your impersonation of a President, I guarantee that you will attain the worst ratings ever for any president!
