Happy Saint Patrick’s Day.
President Trump has used his weekend Executive Time to tweet so far 21 times between Saturday and Sunday and re-tweeted himself and the White House 10 times over the same two days.
Saturday he issued tweets that contained video clips aka propaganda 5 times, while re-tweeting 3 clips from the White House were he signed his first veto.
In an ironic twist he issued this tweet first.
Followed by this Fox News clip, pay attention to the Chyron (that’s the header that appears across the bottom of news programs).
The Three White House re-tweets.
He went on to tweet that General Motors Company “must get their Lordstown, Ohio, plant open,” because Toyota is upping their investment into the U.S. hoping to create 600 new jobs starting in 2021.
He then accused Google of helping China and their military, but not the U.S., calling that “terrible.”
He then went on to blame the Paris Environmental Accord, for the continued Yellow Vest Protests. He added that the “United States has gone to the top of all lists on the Environment.”
In two tweets one from Saturday and one from Sunday he attacked John McCain (R-AZ).
Senator McCain passed away August 25th, after battling brain cancer. His daughter Meghan McCain responded to President Trump’s attack against her father.
He deleted the first tweet from Sunday that attacked Senator McCain only to re-issue the same attack against the now deceased Senator.
It takes a real low class type of person to attack a war hero that has died and is unable to defend himself against the attacks. As a reminder it’s been reported that President Trump’s father paid to allow his son, Donald Trump, to avoid being drafted to fight in Vietnam.
Aside from attacking a deceased popular Senator, President Trump went after another of his favorite targets the “media,” once again he wondered out loud why Saturday Night Live was allowed to “spend all of their time knocking the same person (me),” and asked if maybe the “Federal Election Commission and/or FCC,” investigation Saturday Night Live and the Late Shows for their one sided coverage.
The short answer: It’s the Constitution Stupid.
CNN reported on Saturday that “a newly released snippet,” from a deposition given by former British spy Christopher Steele shows that Steele used information from a “user-generated citizen journalism initiative by CNN, iReport, which no longer operates.”
According to the article Steele was unaware it was just a citizen that posted the information he used in the dossier and not a media source.
For What It’s Worth: During Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony that was public, both Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) entered into the record two tweets that explained Cohen did in fact want to work in the White House, these tweets were from “random people.”
He then spends three tweets lamenting that Fox News pulled Judge Jeanine from it’s Saturday night line-up, following comments the Fox News show host made regarding Rep. Ilhan Omar, as Variety explains on last Saturday night shows, Pirro explained that Omar “did not respect the law set down by the Constitution of the United States. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?””
For a look at all President Trump’s weekend tweets and re-tweets @realDonaldTrump.
This is NOT an Open Thread. For Sunday’s Open Thread @the News Blender.
Once again I wish you all a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
