Attack Democrats, Attack Republicans, Attack everyone : the Commander in Chief’s twitter strategy

He’s back! Trump took to twitter to attack someone other than the media. He railed against the Democrats as well as the “Russian Witch Hunt”, and even members of his own party. Let’s break these down piece-by-piece. Make no mistake about it, the Republican party is doing EVERYTHING to back their President. Seriously. They are throwing their own reputations on the line and rarely condemning him for his absurd and unprecedented behaviors. In fact, I would argue that the vast majority of Republicans are cowards who have been bowing down to the President, and now-independent Joe Scarborough would agree. So, … Continue reading Attack Democrats, Attack Republicans, Attack everyone : the Commander in Chief’s twitter strategy

Dear Trump & Co. : Quit screaming “Fake News”

Today on Fox News Sunday, the “conservative” outlet continued advancing the President’s agenda by asking the new WH communications director if the media is putting out “Fake news” to bring down the Trump administration. I’m speechless. If you turn on Fox News, you’ll hear something completely different from MSNBC, and even CNN. It’s as if they live in an alternate reality over there. They are not reporting objectively, as they are attempting to advance a Trumpian agenda. The biggest spokesperson for the President is in fact Sean Hannity himself, now that Bill O’Reilly is out. It’s not to say that … Continue reading Dear Trump & Co. : Quit screaming “Fake News”

Sean Hannity attacks the media – although he’s a member of it

Sean Hannity is back at it again with the Fake News attacks. He got into it with CNN’s Jake Tapper on twitter for, you guessed it, reporting (the job of a journalist). This one came out of Trump’s playbook : attack CNN on Twitter. It is baffling to think that one journalist, and yes, Sean Hannity is still a journalist, is attacking another for simply reporting. Calling CNN fake news will only fire up Hannity’s audience (a.k.a. the Trump base) even more about the media, which they do not trust already. Fox News and its hosts (with the exception of … Continue reading Sean Hannity attacks the media – although he’s a member of it

The author of “The Art of the Deal” can’t come up with a compromise on healthcare.

He has gone from claiming that he would not cut Medicaid, to throwing a party upon the passage of the House bill, which did in fact cut medicaid. After that, he called the house bill “mean“, which lead to the birth of a senate bill which Trump said needed to be “more generous“. After that, when the Senate bill stalled, Trump went on a Twitter tirade where he changed his story multiple times. He went from repeal and replace to repeal only and then back to repeal and replace. This slashing of medicaid is only one of many broken promises … Continue reading The author of “The Art of the Deal” can’t come up with a compromise on healthcare.

Donald Trump is claiming Obama-driven economic success on Twitter.

This just doesn’t add up. The President has seemingly claimed responsibility for the economic growth driven by the Obama administration on Twitter, his favorite communication medium. In an era where no major legislation has been passed since it began, how is Trump claiming victory off of these numbers? This entire debacle is ironic, as in the first 100 days of his presidency, Obama was doing better than Trump was in stock growth.   Continue reading Donald Trump is claiming Obama-driven economic success on Twitter.

Sean Spicer is out!

Arguably the worst press secretary in White House history is out today, as Sean Spicer announced his resignation. This comes from an administration which has drastically reduced transparency when compared to its predecessor, as they have removed visitor logs, and have greatly reduced the number of on-camera press briefings as well as fewer press conferences from the President himself. Sean Spicer has become infamous for his short temper as well as his high failure rate when it comes to answering questions by the press corps truthfully. Spicer has denounced the press, along with the rest of the Trump administration. He … Continue reading Sean Spicer is out!

Even Trump disapproves of Jeff Sessions’ job as AG

In an interview with The New York Times (which Trump called failing), the President said that he would not have given Sessions the job as AG had he known that he would recuse himself from the Russia investigation.   “Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the President” “How do you take a job and then recuse yourself? If he would have recused himself before the job, I would have said, ‘Thanks, Jeff, but I’m not going to take you.’ It’s extremely unfair — and that’s a mild … Continue reading Even Trump disapproves of Jeff Sessions’ job as AG
