America just elected (kind of) its first Twitter troll for president and it seems he will govern like a Kardashian; that is, being a giant a$$ in 140 characters. Not only is he manifestly unqualified for the enormity of the job, but he’s surrounded himself with even more miserably unqualified lunatics. Yeah, we’re totally screwed!
Understanding and taking in all the convoluted and seriousness of foreign policy is for low-energy losers, which explains why Trump has zero time for intelligence briefings.
Trump has zero time for intelligence briefings and yet he’s readily willing to heed advice from some random right-wing schmuck on Twitter??
Trump blatantly lied on Sunday when he tweeted that “millions of people” voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election. In a conference call with reporters on Monday, Trump’s campaign team unsurprisingly didn’t produce a modicum of evidence supporting that allegation.
Just maybe it has something to do with the fact that Trump’s most trusted advisor on the matter is some random schmuck on Twitter.
Gregg Phillips, a board member of the conservative anti-voter fraud group True the Vote, tweeted on Nov. 13 that he had “verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens.” Phillips, who did not respond to a request for comment on Twitter, has not released any data to back up his claims. Snopes, a website that debunks conspiracy theories, reported that its inbox “exploded with messages” asking them to investigate this issue the day after Phillips made that claim. Phillips’ assertion didn’t spread because of compelling evidence ― he didn’t provide any. And covering up millions of illegal votes would require a massive conspiracy of the sort never seen before. But the internet’s relentless rumor mill amplified Phillips’ claim anyway
So instead of learning about the ongoing crises and hot spots in the world (or whatever Putin tells him), Trump is too busy trying to “heal America” by promoting utterly false Twitter nonsense. Then again, Trump’s so-called political career began by promoting birtherism BS on twitter so we should hardly be surprised.Click here for reuse options!
