While the Senators explain in 10 minute speeches how come the behavior of President Impeached was wrong, but not worthy of removal, President Impeached is preparing for his State of the Union by tweeting 6 times and retweeting 21 times.
Most of today’s retweets and tweets focus on Monday’s Iowa Caucasus for the Democratic Party.
President Impeached talking about government overspending…I lol’d…
The Democrat Caucus is an unmitigated disaster. Nothing works, just like they ran the Country. Remember the 5 Billion Dollar Obamacare Website, that should have cost 2% of that. The only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is “Trump”.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020
President Impeached telling the world he doesn’t understand States Rights, again…
It is not the fault of Iowa, it is the Do Nothing Democrats fault. As long as I am President, Iowa will stay where it is. Important tradition! https://t.co/bX3FLvua1C— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020
Making light of Russia hacking the DNC in order to help his own campaign, I present President Impeached…
When will the Democrats start blaming RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, instead of their own incompetence for the voting disaster that just happened in the Great State of Iowa?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020
Voting was not the disaster, the disaster according to a statement issued last night by the Iowa Democratic Party was with new APP software that was to report the vote totals.

The Washington Post reports that the Iowa Democratic Party said the results from Monday’s caucuses are expected sometime Tuesday.
Some humor was to be found on Twitter as we with “baited” breath awaited our first look at how the Primary to find out who will challenge President Impeached in the General Presidential Election of 2020.
Only one way to settle this: Dance-off.— Matthew Gertz (@MattGertz) February 4, 2020

“Election fuckups. There’s an app for that.”— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) February 4, 2020
Have they tried unplugging Iowa and plugging it back in again?— Kevin M. Kruse (@KevinMKruse) February 4, 2020
Kevin’s wit aside, he on Tuesday offered this reminder…
In the 2012 Iowa caucuses, it took more than two weeks to declare the winner on the Republican side. pic.twitter.com/wGI7Y7tQfU— Kevin M. Kruse (@KevinMKruse) February 4, 2020
Journalist Laura Bassett blasted Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) who used the APP mishap as a politician would for political gain…
Trump drew on a hurricane map with a sharpie, congratulated the wrong state for a Super Bowl win, threw paper towels at hurricane victims dying in Puerto Rico and thought he could buy Greenland https://t.co/b6bKm46Fv2— Laura Bassett (@LEBassett) February 4, 2020
He thought he could just rake a forest. He thought he could nuke a hurricane. His administration listed Wakanda as a trading partner.— Laura Bassett (@LEBassett) February 4, 2020
She also confirmed that Kevin is not just a witty Historian on Twitter…
Also in 2012, it took Republicans 2 weeks to sort Iowa results. They fully botched the caucuses. This is not to say Democrats weren’t incredibly incompetent last night. The GOP just isn’t in a place to throw stones— Laura Bassett (@LEBassett) February 4, 2020
For what it’s worth…The counting of the votes was fine, it was the reporting them via untested in real time conditions tech, that was jacked up.
As a reminder…
People, please don't freak out about Iowa.— Tony (@TileTony) February 4, 2020
Ted fucking Cruz won this thing 4 years ago.
No matter what happens, there are another 49 states yet to weigh in.
Ignore Wolf Blitzer, Iowa is not the Super Bowl of elections.
President Impeached took a victory lap for winning the Republican Caucus with 97 percent of the votes…
The Democrat Party in Iowa really messed up, but the Republican Party did not. I had the largest re-election vote in the history of that great state, by far, beating President Obama’s previous record by a lot. Also, 97% Plus of the vote! Thank you Iowa!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020

“beating President Obama’s previous record by a lot.”

President Impeached bragging, surprising no one…
Market up big today on very good economic news. JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020
My Approval Rating in the Republican Party = 95%, a record! Big Iowa win. Approval Rating overall = 53%, a new high. With our great Economy and other major successes, would be 20 points higher without the phony Witch Hunts and Hoaxes???— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020
