What Trump's "Tweet Storm” Proves...

We're 5 months in to Trump's presidency, and he's just as vicious and vulgar as ever.

Is Trump's latest tweet storm proof that he'll never have the temperament to perform the duties of President?

While Congress scrambles to re-write the GOP's so-called healthcare bill, Donald Trump dominated headlines yesterday with a typically graphic and Trumpian tweet storm - this time directed at Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski.

In two tweets - Trump opined that "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came.."

"...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"

In the face of nationally pressing issues domestic and abroad, isn't it just downright humiliating to our entire country that our Commander in Chief is picking vulgar fights with morning talk show hosts?

Does Trump's temperament makes him unfit to perform his duties as president?

What President Trumps tweets actually prove is the fact that in 140 characters or less he can play leftie/socialists like a cat following a laser dot on the wall. While you all are spending your time chasing nothing, the senate, house, and his cabinet are passing legislation (Kate's Law prime example) that you fools completely miss.

Jesus, no wonder you lost the election and 1000 democrat party seats, you can't focus on anything but the unimportant.

Keep the tweets coming President Trump, their almost over the cliff.

You have a good point. Lunatic, maniac Rump is doing what he knows best: distract, intimidate and coerce to keep from operating on any cylinders. The Rupubs are reaping their rewards while the Demos are distracted by Rump's insane tweets. Yes, he is not fit to be a janitor, much less president of the US. Question is, if Rump stays as president, will we have a country left to defend?

The good thing about Trump's tweets is that we know what he, the Republican Party and their Christian followers really think. Trump, please keep tweeting!!!

This is just a diversionary tactic to give the pundits something to talk about other than the "so-called" health care bill.

Sorry but I still blame the voters...he did everything in his power to demonstrate he is the definition of trash...and yet..."I just don't like Hillary...there's just something about her...I don't trust her...I just can't vote for her" And, we know that was fueled by Russian influencing the election...combined with voter repression...but we should have OVERCOME those obstacles...we the people, even those of us who voted for her...we needed to do more, and we need to do more NOW

Off topic: U.S. citizens are finally paying attention to healthcare financing. Every Democrat who can drag themselves in front of a news camera should be shouting that the U.S. should have 'Medicare-For-All' and get the price gouging insurance companies out from between ourselves and our doctors. National and State Democratic legislators can contrast themselves as good guys by pounding on a popular solution while the Republicans are putting forward something with a 16% popularity. (Great setup for gains in '18 & '20 and the census prep.)

I just don't care. I don't believe in regime change in foreign countries and I don't believe in it here. I didn't like the Arkansas Project when it was used to disrupt Bill Clinton's presidency nor the Caucus Room conspiricy to destroy the Obama presidency. The media needs to stop paying attention to idiocy and stop speculating whether or not Trump is unbalalanced or unfit for the presidency.

The bottom line is Donald J. Trump is the legally elected President of the United States. The alternative, Mike Pence, is much worse. I don't care what the man tweets, I want the media to do their job and pay attention to issues that matter to the American people.

For the past 15 years, the mainstream media infotainment megaphone has reported on anything in order to avoid discussion or debate concerning war and peace or what are the concerns that affect average Americans. The president is under unprecidented attack, worse that anything even Clinton or Obama experienced.

We have been treated to the permanent campaign when a president gets into office since Clinton and now we have the opposition research of the Democratic 2016 presidential campaign following the victor into office. Give it up. He's president and we need to start discussing important issues. The relentless attacks from the media need to stop and the anonymous sources need to stop feeding allegations to media thirsting for web clicks and ratings.

Here's a slightly altered saying. "Tweets don't build character. Tweets reveal character." He's more transparent than he thinks. Not just for what he tweets, but also for what he chooses not to tweet. The media has been constantly ripping Trump Care apart and yet he doesn't defend it. He's suppose to hit back "ten times harder", and yet..... Nothing.

I hate to repeat myself but I posted this on the last thread but it's relevant to this thread.

I think this dust-up between the Morning Joe anchors and Trump is fake. They've been friends for years. As they say: "Any press is good press." My guess is they are colluding in this scam, Joe and Mika for ratings and Trump for a diversion from the Russia investigation.

I'm leaning toward the 'shell game'...now keep your eyes on my (small) hands...ooops, wrong shell.

While we obsess about his sociopathic rants we used up a bit of the time we could be watching Congress to make sure they don't ram/sneak through a repeal of Health Care.

All in all, I don't see a shift in right wing, conservative, tea party attitudes. There may need to be a shift in how the msg. is presented to get the majority of people at the table in agreement.

That statement by a "Reichstadt" surrogate that no stopping them now as they now control all three beanches iof Government is very troubling since US Government was designed from inseption to maintain a balance of power among legislative, administrative and judicial branches. I have no faith that any Constitutional "loyalists" will ever emerge and take back the Government I served by enlisting in the US Army so many years ago. It is unlikely that the original frameworks will ever be restored. We have become what the founders feared..a single party ruling as they see fit without checks and balances. Again, putting Trump in the oval office was like putting fecal matter in the punch bowl at your daughter's wedding reception. All the "perfumes of Arabia can never cleanse" the stench.

Has it ocurred to you that this president craves attention and that is what you are giving him? He, the president, is either insane or he is playing with the public as he played when he ran for office. He did announced many years ago that someone could reach the presidency doing what he is doing.

He plays with us, occupies our attention with bunk and while he is doing so, his people does what he really wants to do. His tweets are the Colliseum of our modern Rome.

It is beyond obvious: that Trump is a pathetic, self-centered, sociopathic, cartoonish autocrat, too emotionally immature and simpleminded to adequately undertake the complex and weighty responsibilities of president; that a clearly out-of-touch, one-party-rule Republican Party is deliberately ignoring the overall interests and essential needs of ordinary citizens to do the bidding of a tiny faction of aristocrats, whose only mission is to hoard most of society's wealth and power; that the Supreme Court has degenerated into an exclusive, all-powerful star chamber of robed Masters of the Universe, far exceeding their original constitutional power; that the United Sates is a ruthless military/economic vampire/empire sucking dry the blood and riches of a dying planet; that our registration and voting systems have been hopelessly corrupted by partisan extremists in state legislatures, unscrupulously purging rolls, passing draconian voter-suppression laws, gerrymandering districts to permanently tilt elections to maintain an unaccountable supermajority in the House, relying on faulty and inaccurate voting machines with no paper trails in minority and/or Democratic districts; that the corporate-controlled press has utterly failed to inform their mesmerized audience of dumbed-down escapists, hooked on cheesy fiction and cheap thrills, about these critical issues, turning the First Amendment into nothing more than fodder for late-night comedians and a tool for religious zealots who seek to establish a Christian theocracy.

What is not so obvious: why the People curled up in the fetal position and let all this happen; why such large segments of eligible voters consistently fail to inform themselves of objective reality, don't take their duty as citizens seriously, or think their votes don't count (which, sadly, in too many cases they don't); why most passive consumers of shallow corporate media can't recognize that, in effect, we have already lost our democratic republic, for which our forefathers bled and died -- not that we might lose it at some vague future date; why they believe any action short of total revolution -- in our spirit and mindset -- will change anything!

Happy, hollow, Fourth of July...

The lesson the people of the US are learning is the difference between a statesman and a businessman. People thought that the office imbues the personality and once in office Trump would turn into a stateman. But businessmen are a breed unto themselves. We should take the time that he is in office to study him carefully so we understand what we get when we put a businessman into office. The other side of this coin is Pence. He's a lawyer and a Right-wing fundaMENTAList. If he ever got into the actual presidency, he'd make The Donald look positively balanced. As much as I don't like the Trump's Right-wing agenda, he's still the lesser of two evils given Mike Pence in the equation.

The Rocky Mountains are an awe-inspiring, priceless national treasure! I hope you found much peace, beauty, and solitude to charge your spirit. The Canadian Rockies are even more expansive with tens of thousands of square miles of untouched wilderness.

I wonder what other scripted theatrical reality television has in store for us Moron Joke Joe? Oh the drama just in time for the tax cut AHCA. I updated the original post for dearest Diane.

What 'his' tweets actually prove is the fact that in 140 characters or less he can play gun nuts, long term fake news viewers, and so called Evangelical Christians, like a cat following a laser dot on the wall. While they all are spending thier time ignoring science and reality, the senate, house, and his cabinet are passing legislation laughing at the stupidity and ignorance of his constituency.

Looks like President Trump taught Nikky Haley a thing or two about using social media as a tool for diverting the attention of leftie/socialists. While the minions were obsessed with Mika and Joe this went completely unnoticed by the zombies. More fodder for the lemmings.

Increase spending for war; decrease spending for peace; lie to the public -- and then brag about it! Nice!

WTF is wrong with you!

Is there any doubt who the most dangerous terrorists in the world are, who is perverting their religion, dividing our nation, propagating hate, escalating violence, proliferating weapons, spreading death and destruction everywhere -- all for profit, increasing and consolidating even more wealth for American oligarchs, drunk on power and blood?

The "minions, zombies, and lemmings" being played are the ignorant fools who voted for this unpatriotic mob of Republican thugs and their useful idiot, who pretends to be smart and fails miserably, like everything else he has ever done in his sad little life.

None of this has gone "unnoticed" by the civilized people in the world. This immature boy king, in a fat old man's body, is only "diverting the attention" of those dumber than him, the butt of every joke.

Thom,

'He' is (and was during the campaign) unfit to be president, as well as a member of the human race. Unfortunately with this Republican controlled Congress, and their almost complete lack of integrity regarding doing what's best for the country, they will never do anything about 'Him' and his behavior.

If these people were in power back in the early 1970's, Nixon would have served a second complete term. Unfortunately I find the situation hopeless.

Clinton: I'll defend Israel but push for 'two-state solution

Hillary Clinton believes both Republican candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz "missed the mark" with their approach to the Israel-Palestinian Arab conflict
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
