    Trump Tweets

    is Trump serious with his tweets? Or is he just using them to distract from other issues?

    Trump is a mental case. He won't make sense. He's a narcissist stuck in some very early developmental stage. I think he has to respond immediately to everything he hears, and he wants the world to hear what he thinks.
    I feel very sick inside.

    I think Cathy summed it up correctly.

    I'll be interested to see whether the Secret Service allows him to continue tweeting.
    James Warren said today in a newsletter I get from the Poynter Institute, "If you can’t take the heat, sit down and tweet. It's weak and sad. But it’s also the new reality."
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Trump is going directly to those who put him in office, using the tweet standard of 40 characters or whatever it is. He doesnt have to hold press conferences via mainstream media to communicate. He is a P.T. Barnham type of politician and he knows how to get out there.

    Nothing I have said here negates anything above, nor do I indend it to.

    I doubt most of his base is on Twitter, but I'm willing to be convinced.
    I'm trying to view this whole thing as tragicomic theater, and I'm wishing robust good health for the Supremes.

    I have suspected that the length of his tweets matches the length of his attention span.

    Quite frankly I don't know why anyone tweets - just don't understand it - or feel a need. I hope he is successful in office - for all of us - but man he has to stop the tweeting. He will soon learn (I hope) he can't be a knee jerk president.

    Perhaps it's all an act?

    His cabinet selections, too? We can only hope he'll take off his mask and shout "Just kidding!"
