My comment on this WSJ piece walking back the media’s hysterical reactions to Trump’s tweets:
“Trump’s tweets are golden. As genuine as the man. Previous presidents have, after their multiple campaign promises, most of them to henceforth be forgotten, disappeared behind spokesfolk and telepromptered speeches. Trump is different. Hooray for the difference.”
sixteen twenty people liked it.
And I hope you keep them up. They are a refreshing change from the usual establishment play of presidents hiding behind spokesfolk and telepromptered speeches.
“The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media – over 100 million people!” Trump tweeted. “I can go around them.”
Indeed you can and you have to all our benefit. Don’t let the fake news of the Mediacrats get you down. Much less tell you what to do.
UPDATE: Didn’t take her long to sing a different tune. Twenty-four hours or thereabouts.
He tweeted a typo: “Despite the negative press covfefe.” It went viral.
Covfefe? The scolds of the fake news site Certainly Not News, which is anti-Trump 24/7, said the Internet was “baffled.”
Actually, much of the blogosphere enjoyed the joke. “It’s Slovenian for gotcha suckers!” wrote commenter exildedonmainstreet at althouse.blogspot.com
Indeed, Trump soon followed up with: “Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’??? Enjoy!”
Nice to see that he has the self-confidence to be self-deprecating, even under constant Mediacrat attack. Unlike some other presidents the Mediacrats adored.
UPDATE: Sean Spicer gets a dry little joke out of it and Allahpundit concludes it may have been the go word for SEAL Team 6 to seize North Korea’s nuclear facilities.
MORE: Dimbulb Hildafelon “joked” she thought it was a hidden message to the Russians she now blames for costing her the election. Anybody but herself.
Sanctuary cities defenders, including some illegals, pounced on the Texas House of Representatives on Monday’s last day of the session.
“That’s when the fun began. Apparently, state Representative Matt Rinaldi (R-Irving) announced that he had called Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on the protesters. The Democrats apparently took this badly.”
Rinaldi tweeted that one Democrat rep had threatened to “get me on the way to my car,” to which he replied that if he attempted it “I would shoot him in self defense.”
Good on ya, Matt, for carrying. And for calling ICE on the protesters, too.
What the NYTimes reported existing on Jan. 20, it now reports never existed—weird, huh? (Photo via Arthur Schwartz on Twitter.)
The former executive editor of the Jerusalem Post, Brett Stephens, has long been anti-Trump, but this is unforgivable:
“When will Republicans acknowledge that the President of the United States is mentally ill?”
As David Paul retweets: “Bret is the face of the self-immolating establishment.”
