And how is it that you imagine that you're invited to such places? Are you an elected or appointed government official?
But thanks for sharing your delusions of grandeur and hatred of democracy.

What's really amusing is that he's insinuating you aren't welcome at places of the govt. "of the people, by the people, and for the people". Kind of dickish. No, wait. Not kind of. Actually, just plain unamerican.

Some of his recent tweets would be things he'd have to answer some uncomfortable questions about on his SF86. If he were John Q. Public. Things that an investigator would red flag and likely deny him for, to be perfectly honest.

this just tweeted...

"North Korea just stated that it is in the final stages of developing a nuclear weapon capable of reaching parts of the U.S. It won't happen!"

"China has been taking out massive amounts of money & wealth from the U.S. in totally one-sided trade, but won't help with North Korea. Nice!"

I enjoy how he ends his tweets with sarcastic one-word exclamations. So presidential, bigly even.

It occurs to me that if we were in a meritocratic nation, Trump would have a hard time gaining control of a Dairy Queen. Thanks to the magic of inheritance, huge bank loans and of course being a white male he has managed to take control of the largest military on earth. Maybe inheritance laws need to be re-written?

If you're so bothered by his tweets I suggest talking to twitter.
Otherwise the risk will be handled by his senior staff.

That his staff is hand picked by The Don himself, and that they were hired to dutifully consummate his every whim and defensively "interpret" his seemingly drug induced tweets, and obey his every off the cuff edict, AND most importantly interminably stroke his ego in excess isn't a good foundation to build a Tower of Confidence on. ;)

(I mean, let's just ignore the admission that they guy is too incompetent to keep his mouth closed, that you are arguing that his handlers are necessary to prevent nuclear winter...and just stick with your belief that he hasn't appointed vacuous YES men)

Dickhead is on Twitter threatening GM to make it's small cars in the US or face import taxes.

Also after Obamacare again. I hope the GOP fully repeals it with no replacement plan, no delays, and strips the Medicare expansion away from all states.

If he keeps this up its gonna be "the boy that cried wolf" .. and thats kinda scary, Imagine a Trump that does not get the attention he so desperately craves.. He is gonna one-up himself till he is threatning with nukes... probably sooner rather than later.

I dub thee "twitter nukes"

It's already the case. GM dropped 1% on the tweet, and immediately regained 1% after they responded. They're up 1/2% net since the tweet, so the markets are already tuning him out.

two tweets put together, just how stupid is our next president?

"The dishonest media likes saying that I am in Agreement with Julian Assange - wrong. I simply state what he states, it is for the people to make up their own minds as to the truth. The media lies to make it look like I am against "Intelligence" when in fact I am a big fan!"

He's so F ing dumb. If he just STFU and played nice with the CIA he'd get all the fascist goodies he wants. Maybe even prosecuting reporters for insulting him or allowing his sons Uday and Qusay as cabinet appointments.


I wouldn't be surprised if he's on the road to impeachment by April, at this rate.

I think that's been patently obvious for some time now, it's more the question of how stupid are his followers?

Yeah. He's just a broker of facts. Putting "intelligence" in quotes and "Russian hacking" in quotes is simply being factual. It is in no way a commentary.

Didn't he say Assange should be hung years ago for what he does?

I am trying to look at this spat with the CIA as both one of the better things about Trump, and as a direct result of his appointment of Gen. Flynn as his national security advisor. He's well known to be prone to conspiracy theories, and his son is absolute loon. I'm sure much of trumps vacuous national security mindshare is occupied by "Flynn Facts" which don't exactly agree with the CIA's assessments. I'm sure he's also somewhat upset about his ouster from his poison at the DIA, and he blames the DNI. It being one of the "better" parts about trump is directly related to personal schadenfreude on my part, as I dislike the CIA.

Checked in on Trump's twitter feed and it's a mess. I'm too lazy to screenshot then crop and host everyone of them.

Suffice it to say it's a whole lot about the hacking, basically blaming anyone but the Russians, interspersed with a little commentary about the ratings of the Apprentice with Schwarznegger as host and how his ratings suck but who cares, Arnold supported Kasich and Hillary so fuck him (jesus what a petty motherfucker) and how is going to meet with some famous people like Anna Wintour who is the head of the largest fashion magazine (he adores the celebrity life). I mean he executive produces the Apprentice so would profit if the show does well, but he is more concerned with panning the show cause the host wasn't a Trumpist. Duh.

Oh also he claims the media is dishonest saying America is paying for the wall cause Mexico is going to pay for it LATER now. LOL

The guy is all over the place and comes across as a juvenile, not a president. At all.

He is back to attacking Saturday Night Live again.

The guy is amazingly petty and he constantly continues to impress what a douchebag he really is
