The lame tweet president

How do you know when President trump has  arrived? The whining continues after the engines of Air Force One have shut down.

President Donald Trump seems to put a lot of effort into complaining about impediments to doing whatever he wants to do and criticisms of things he doesn’t want examined.

He gives the impression that he is owed unquestioning support, and doesn’t seem to think he needs to earn it.

It’s very said that he publicly complains so much.

Twitter was a successful weapon through his campaign, but it now seems to have lost it’s potency.

The more he resorts to tweeting ‘poor me’ complaints the lamer his presidency looks.

If he spent less time obsessing about media and spent more time doing his job he might manage to get a bit more done.

He might get media attention with his tweets still, but Congress and the Senate don’t seem to be swayed by his spraying one liners.

    The whole point is that those who form the political class are resisting change no matter what people chose.
    What is the difference with ignoring the smacking referendum?

    • I don’t think it is the WHOLE point sorethumb, but I do know that it isn’t the senate he tweets to. He tweets to the people who supported/support him. HIs rhetoric is basic, it’s succinct, it’s unbelievably unfiltered, but it’s what he his truth and a reflection of his world, inasmuch as he perceives it.

      While it seems demented to the chattering classes, while it’s problematic for his “handlers”, it’s deeply disturbing to and disruptive of the deep state – the machine that actually runs America. I think history will recall him as a gung-ho maverick who got some walls built, got some changes made and turned the USA inwards for a decade.

      His battle with the machine out to ruin him is impossible, subject as he is to well-resourced scrutiny bent on his destruction. No single man, as embattled and fortressed as he, can ever reciprocate in kind ben with some of the people.

      The US doesn’t work like Donald’s Real Estate world.

      • sorry for typos and errors…

    In times go by if you didn’t like something you threw stones or rotten fruit at it, with the digital age it is tweets instead.

  4. “Unbridled demagoguery has driven the GOP to an inflection point from which there is no turning back.”

    “If a populist prevails in the primary, as appears increasingly likely, the party faces either devastating defeat in the general election or a new, unrecognizable identity. In either scenario, a large swath of the GOP electorate will be forced to eat crow and reevaluate its affiliation.

    “Call it, if you will, a moral debt restructuring, one caused by the reckless behavior of a man who knows a thing or two about bankruptcy.”

      • Precisely the sort of man Trump needs.

    Even as the whiny crybaby narcissistic snowflake directs his bile at the Republican lawmakers, they continue to cover for his ineptitude.

    Postmodemity is a vague and inclusive term which pertains to both culture and politics. Looking at politics, we could say that if the modem period has been characterized by the grand theories of liberalism, socialism and human rights, then the postmodem period sees the universalism inherent in these ideas as a mask to hide the dominance of white European males. Postmodemity heralds the end of these theories and is concemed with the assertion of the power of particular interests. The emergence of ethnic or “identity politics” is a preeminent expression of postmodem values. We see it operative in the multicultural movement which denies the idea of a common culture in favor of perspectives which are Eurocentric,
    ……..
    In the 1950s and 1960s, left-wing intellectuals who were both inspired and informed by a powerful labour movement wrote hundreds of books and articles on working-class issues. Such work would help shape the views of politicians at the very top of the Labour Party. Today, progressive intellectuals are far more interested in issues of identity. … Of course, the struggles for the emancipation of women, gays, and ethnic minorities are exceptionally important causes. New Labour has co-opted them, passing genuinely progressive legislation on gay equality and women’s rights, for example. But it is an agenda that has happily co-existed with the sidelining of the working class in politics, allowing New Labour to protect its radical flank while pressing ahead with Thatcherite policies.

    Helps explain the appeal of Trump.

    And in the real world, support for Trump rings the cash registers while the Democrats are bankrupt:

      That Mike Pence eh! What a little ray of sunshine he is. And fancy having the gall to describe the most scandal-ridden, corrupt, paralysed presidency in US history as a triumph…

      Nearly a thousands tweets, 836 lies, and not a single legislative accomplishment of any substance despite owning Senate, Congress, and the WH.

      Pathetic.

        I know you can write, Joe, but can you read?:

        President Trump has signed more than 40 bills and nearly 40 executive orders on everything from health care to energy, infrastructure and more.

        While the previous administration turned to federal agencies to enact its agenda, President Trump has signed more laws to slash through federal red tape than any president in American history and has saved businesses up to $18 billion a year in costs.
