Another Day in Trump-Nation: Tweetzilla Strikes Again

The president is good at tweeting at people who criticize him. The latest is Connecticut Senator Blumenthal, over his Vietnam-era military service.

My seven year old might be more socially mature than our current President.  Every morning I scroll through my favorite online current event sites and rarely is there a morning where I don’t read a new report of outlandish behavior courtesy of our Nation’s leader.  Of all the personnel in President Trump’s world, can no one be appointed to stand next to his computer and slap it shut when he tries to tweet?  Can we get someone on that assignment stat please.

How is anyone ever going to take you seriously if you are spending your days ranting away on social media?  Even tweens know that kind of behavior is immature and ridiculous Donald.  Sigh.  So here is the most recent tweet-tastic rant from our fearless (and clueless leader:)

While on his 17 day “working vacation” President Trump decided that rehashing old attacks on a United States Senator might be a fantastic use of his time.  Perhaps some of you caught Senator Blumenthal’s recent public outcry on CNN for continuing the investigation into alleged Russian interference in our recent US election.  “Politicizing the Department of Justice for personal ends, I think, is a disservice to the law, and it’s also potentially a violation of the spirit of the First Amendment,” stated the Connecticut Senator.

Of course this wasn’t going to sit well with the United States Commander in Chief, so he did what he does best.  He took to Twitter to bully his fellow American legislator.  “Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal,” Trump wrote on Twitter shortly afterward. “He told stories about his Vietnam battles and … conquests, how brave he was, and it was all a lie. He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child.”  President Trump referred to Blumenthal as a “phony Vietnam Con Artist,” as he referenced the controversy that surrounded Blumenthal’s 2010 remarks regarding his service in the Marines.  Indeed the Connecticut Senator had grossly misspoken of his service in Vietnam.  Basically he never left the United States, yet he publicly insinuated that he fought tooth and nail in the Vietnam War.  “On a few occasions I have misspoken about my service, and I regret that and I take full responsibility,”  stated Blumenthal only days after his statements were made.

 

 

Sigh.  Read on if you dare…

  1. I don’t know how this will end, you couldn’t make it up, so I certainly can’t even predict an ending or several endings for that matter. The more depressing this is the support that he does have.

  2. I am appalled by the amount that Twitter has been used as a source of communication so far. Presidents used to address their nations face to face and give speeches. The whole thing is just goofy.
    Not to mention the amount of tweets discrediting major news outlets – no need to trust the media anymore I suppose.

  3. It would be funny if it was not so frightening. Hate politics being reduced to tweets to be honest. I hope for a better present and future and soon

  4. I’m so sorry for you American friends. This is an utter nightmare and the worst is that people are getting used to this, like some sort of a new normal. Yes, we moan, but there’s something every single day. I know everyone is getting very tired of repeating the same sensible argumental points. But there’s 3.5 years more to go. Something got to happen. #globalblogging

  5. I completely agree. A US President should not have time to be on social media. He needs to put down the keyboard and step up to the job he put himself forward for, even if most of the world would rather he hadn’t. #GlobalBlogging

  6. It’s so worrying that the world’s most powerful leader is a huge tweeting fan. Surely there’s better things for him to be doing with his time like sorting out your health care and housing and caring for the actual people like he is meant to be doing? #globalblogging

  7. One the problems that I have is that he is making bullying others on social media acceptable. A kid can actually say that it is ok because the President does it all the time. I have a big issue with it. People hold up the President up as a role model and he is not.

  8. It all baffles me. Most of all I find it mind blowing that The President addresses the nation and so many critical / sensitive political issues via the medium of Twitter? Call me old fashioned but I struggle to get my head around it. Thanks for linking to #DreamTeam x

  9. Childish and bullying behaviour that as an educator I would not tolerate in my classroom yet Americans are forced to tolerate from their countries leader. Shocking!!! Thank you for linking up to #ablogginggoodtime 🎉

  10. I’m pretty sure he’s tweeting on a cell phone. I seriously doubt he knows how to use a computer. Much easier to hide a cell phone and fall asleep with it in the middle of typing “covfefe” or whatever. Total lunatic. #globalblogging

  11. What? Surely he has more pressing issues to attend to (you would think) !!!!! Thank you for sharing with #StayClassyMama
