Donald Trump Tweets Thread

Recommended Posts

Sure, but even that seems like a bad idea.  I'm sure Sanders will get questions about it now, and maybe other Republicans will as well.  Plus if anyone outside his base reads it it's a bad look for both Trump and his base (they harassed this poor woman, of course). 

He got away with the sexual assaults already. Unless Zervos' lawsuit gets past the motion to dismiss stage he can probably ignore the issue until the 2020 campaign. He's in the clear, why turn back and fight some more? Obviously he's a repulsive human being and a moron, but the decision to tweet about this particular article seems odd even for a repulsive moron. My guess is he didn't read the article.

He just seems incapable of not tweeting about news that is negative towards himself.

I know there's rarely any strategy behind Trump tweets, but this one seems particularly stupid.  The article in question is exceptionally well done. One of the primary arguments I hear in defense of Trump is that simply trying to kiss someone isn't a big deal.  The article makes a pretty solid case that it was a big deal in this case: he was 59, owned the building in which she worked and did business with her employer, she was 22 and had only kissed one man in her life. And he didn't just lean in for a kiss, he grabbed her and wouldn't let her move for two minutes. Any victim of sexual misconduct deserves sympathy, but the article really plays up the "innocent young girl vs powerful older man" angle and explains why how the incident changed the course of her life. Why would you want to draw people's attention to the article?  I assume he's either irrational or is just betting his base won't bother to read the article itself?

He wants his base to read the headline, dismiss it, and be another point in favor of the biased MSM against Trump.

He has to keep heaping coal on the fire of his base, and pointing out "unfair" articles like this one keeps the base riled up and a "See, didn't I tell you they were bad" kinda way.  

By pointing to this article, he throws red meat to his base and basically inoculates him from anyone who supports him believing it.

Sounds a bit worried, doesn't he?

Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 38m38 minutes ago

A woman I don’t know and, to the best of my knowledge, never met, is on the FRONT PAGE of the Fake News Washington Post saying I kissed her (for two minutes yet) in the lobby of Trump Tower 12 years ago. Never happened! Who would do this in a public space with live security......

....cameras running. Another False Accusation. Why doesn’t @washingtonpost report the story of the women taking money to make up stories about me? One had her home mortgage paid off. Only @FoxNews so reported...doesn’t

The reply from said woman:

Rachel Crooks for Ohio‏ @RachelforOhio 3h3 hours ago

Please, by all means, share the footage from the hallway outside the 24th floor residential elevator bank on the morning of January 11, 2006. Let’s clear this up for everyone. It’s liars like you in politics that have prompted me to run for office myself.

 

With a link to her fundraising page.  

Why bring up the security camera thing? That's the most baffling part of his tweet. Even if he wanted to take a swipe at her, there's no reason to raise that particular angle. She didn't bring it up. And once you do you have to know the follow-up is coming, not just from Crooks but from the media as well.

Unless he genuinely thinks he didn't do it, which seems impossible to believe but he is certainly delusional.

It's part of his lying MO.  He references fictional evidence that should exonerate him, but that are never delivered. 

He's done it more times than I can remember.  References to tapes between Comey and Trump, to shut Comey down. References to proof that the sexual assault folks are lying, only to never deliver.  Says he's a germaphobe so the pee tape stuff couldn't possibly be true.  He's going to divest from his business, look at all these stacks of papers and folders!  

He's always building frames for these accusations and saying he's later going to put pictures in them that will show he's innocent, except all we're left with are a ton of empty frames, or frames with stick figures drawn by 4 year olds saying "INOSENTS PRUF!"

Because he knows there's no way security cam footage will be kept for 12 years.  It's safe to say "I'd have had to be an idiot to do that in front of security cams" if you know that footage won't be found.  Of course, the fact that he's exactly the kind of idiot who would brag on tape about what parts of the female anatomy he likes to grab means that argument isn't exactly persuasive.

I never said give teachers guns, that is total fake news.  I just said it would be a great idea for many of them to have guns in the classroom:

 

Donald J. Trump‏Verified account @realDonaldTrump 3h3 hours ago

I never said “give teachers guns” like was stated on Fake News @CNN & @NBC. What I said was to look at the possibility of giving “concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience - only the best. 20% of teachers, a lot, would now be able to

....immediately fire back if a savage sicko came to a school with bad intentions. Highly trained teachers would also serve as a deterrent to the cowards that do this. Far more assets at much less cost than guards. A “gun free” school is a magnet for bad people. ATTACKS WOULD END!

....History shows that a school shooting lasts, on average, 3 minutes. It takes police & first responders approximately 5 to 8 minutes to get to site of crime. Highly trained, gun adept, teachers/coaches would solve the problem instantly, before police arrive. GREAT DETERRENT!

....If a potential “sicko shooter” knows that a school has a large number of very weapons talented teachers (and others) who will be instantly shooting, the sicko will NEVER attack that school. Cowards won’t go there...problem solved. Must be offensive, defense alone won’t work!

Donald J. Trump‏ @realDonaldTrump 3h3 hours ago

There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, there’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or that it will happen this time, and so I’d invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and make his case to get votes.” .....

....The President Obama quote just before election. That’s because he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win and he didn’t want to “rock the boat.” When I easily won the Electoral College, the whole game changed and the Russian excuse became the narrative of the Dems.

This quote from Obama hasn't gotten ANY play in here at all.

Sure, I will. This is why “rig the election” has always been the wrong way to express what happened in this. “Hack” isn’t even right with the exception of the voter roll hacking and the DNC/Podesta hack.  It was a foreign disinformation/propaganda campaign with some illegal acts thrown in to steal documents and provide them in as damaging a way as possible to the public.  That’s not rigging, that’s committing crimes to sway an election.

First, I miss having a sane and competent President.

Secondly, it’s important to understand the context of the “rigging” Obama was referring to. At the time, Donald Trump was accusing Hillary Clinton every day on the campaign trail of “rigging” the election, which was largely interpreted as the Democrats getting illegal votes in most part from immigrants, but it was largely a meme that Trump was pushing every day on the trail, that Hillary was “rigging” the election, and that’s what Obama was referring to. What Obama underestimated was how many Aunt Millie’s in Michigan and Uncle Willie’s in Wisconsin would join Facebook and believe the absolute crap that was being peddled there. But that’s not “rigging” the election, and considering that this all happened just a few months ago, basically anyone should be able to remember what actually happened and what Obama meant at the time.

Being critical thinkers is not some folks strong point, nor is it DJT's. He and his supporters would rather be told what to think/say. Besides, none of that fits the narrative DJT and his supporters want to push.
