The last few Monday’s I have recounted President Trump’s Twitter weekend. I’m going to be skipping that step today. Although, I will tell you according to Trump Twitter Archive, that for Friday through Sunday the President tweeted 42 times, and retweeted 30 times, giving him a total of 72 tweets and retweets.
One of his Saturday tweets sent twitter into a hurry-up and wait mode. For those of us familiar often times a journalist will warn us that “breaking news is incoming,” and us political/news junkies wait. And typically that wait is about an hour.

With President Trump’s tweets we had to wait until 9 a.m. eastern on Sunday morning to have him confirm the news that an ISIS leader was presumed dead. For more at the News Blender.
After the announcement our paid Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham weighed in on a Washington Post headline that made waves on Twitter.

On Sunday night the President headed to game 5 of the World Series. Where he was greeted to boos and chants of “lock him up.”

This morning Morning Joe lamented the discord shown the President, they did include the President in this lamenting as he was the first to use the chant “lock her up” in campaign rallies, regarding his rival Hillary Clinton.
Joe Scarborough called the chant “unAmerican.”

Now here is my hot take on this subject. While I personally do not like the discord, I do not like the divisions within the country down party lines, especially given how unknown our party lines are.
However, here is the difference between the two things, why it’s not acceptable for President Trump to lead the chants of “lock her up” but it’s perfectly American for voters in a room to boo or chant at our President.
Government vs. the People.
He is the government running for high office, he has power we simply as regular people do not have, from him, it’s a political threat. From us? It’s freedom of speech. Can’t be more American than that.
They have so truly isolated the President from negative reactions. I’m not speaking of the media. I’m speaking of the real life American person. He is not confronted with the protests that happen outside the White House everyday, he is not faced with the loathing that more than not America has for the President. He is in a bubble and last night, the bubble was popped, even if only a little bit.
When a President tweets out American’s that do not support him are Human Scum.
The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 23, 2019
Is the booing and chanting really all that surprising?
For Monday the President has tweeted 1 time so far.
The S&P just hit an ALL TIME HIGH. This is a big win for jobs, 401-K’s, and, frankly, EVERYONE! Our Country is doing great. Even killed long sought ISIS murderer, Al-Baghdadi. We are stronger than ever before, with GREAT upward potential. Enjoy!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 28, 2019
Here's Trump's public schedule for today. I put non-travel items in red. The "roundtable with supporters" is a $100,000-per-person fundraiser attached to the larger fundraiser. (Public schedules don't include all of a president's activities.) pic.twitter.com/lULSeEa4CY— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) October 28, 2019
Making 1st visit as President to Chicago, @POTUS also slams actor Jussie Smollett for falsely accusing "MAGA Country" of an attack on him. Pres says the Smollett allegation "is a scam – just like the impeachment of your president." Says Smollett still trying to get away with it. pic.twitter.com/Q2qlYfS8cD— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) October 28, 2019
For What It’s Worth.
Two years of QAnon — the 2rd Qanniversary, if you will — and SOMEHOW no mass arrests.— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) October 28, 2019
The "67000 sealed indictments" never resulted in cases.
No one has been shipped to GITMO.
It's almost…ALMOST…as if Qanon was a con targeting credulous hick boomer rubes.
This post will be updated within reason.
