I know, I know it’s been said over and over again, but the man sitting in the Oval Office really needs to say away from Twitter.
Listen, I get it. Social media helped him deliver his message directly to the American people, while cutting out the middle man (the media). In a 140 character message, he was able to say exactly what wanted to millions of Americans instantly.
Yeah….well, that and the hours upon hours of free media attention he received after saying one outrageous thing after the other during the campaign.
As a candidate running for the highest office in the land, the guy played the media to perfection. He gave everyone what they wanted. The media got the ratings they so desperately craved and his rabid supporters ate it up.
Social media played a big role in the Donald’s rise to the top of the pack in the Republican Primary and his eventual election as the 45th President of the United States.
But here’s the thing: He’s no longer a candidate for office. He is the president, whether you’d like to admit it or not.
Unfortunately, his social media practices have not changed since his election and he’s not doing himself any favors.
For example, here are a few of 45’s recent tweets:
Even if you are an absolute, 100 percent, can-do-no wrong backer of this president, how do any of this tweets help him in any possible way?
I’ll give you some time to come up with an answer.
Anything yet? No, nothing?
The tweets make him look either sad, desperate or petty, none of which is a good look for a sitting president.
Also, since when does Congress work for the president? Last I checked, their primary function was not protecting the president. Instead, they work for the American people and answer to the American people.
Let’s be honest here, while Trump may have been the lesser of two evils when it came to Hillary Clinton, he’d likely turn on any of them if it meant he’d benefit in some way.
Again, President Trump, put the phone down and back away from Twitter slowly…because Covfefe, you know?
