Those of you who are paid to follow Trump disregard. If you are not a supporter of Donald Trump and yet cling to his tweets, unfollow immediately; the loss of followers will be a major blow to the "baby tyrant's" ego. (That's a 70s pop pysch term.) Let Mr. Hartmann keep you informed. This also applies to Facebook and other "socio-media."

Yes, i.m.baron., sound advice. Stop participating, whether actively or passively, in ANY social network. Poisoned pablum. Make far better use of your time visiting and reading some of the many fine, truthful, informative sites. Democracy Now, TomDispatch, Intercept, Counterpunch, Black Agenda Report, to name just a few. Talk to your friends, your neighbors, your family, and especially your children.

Sorry for delay. Good suggestions. My main objective is to deflate the ego. A loss of followers, friends and likes for some can be a major blow to one's ego. Just sayin'

Are you telling us to stop using "social media" by posting on "social media"?

I don't consider TH to be "social media" but who am I? Did you miss this?

No. Just stop feeding Trump's ego. A reduction in the NUMBERS of his followers, likes and friends will be upsetting to a man who is operating at the emotional level of a 13-year-old. He thrives on approval and can't handle disapproval; he pouts.
