Trump’s Corner – Feb. 6, 2018

Trump’s Corner: Where we highlight the events of our president’s favorite pastime: tweeting.

Why is the president of our nation tweeting constantly? Who knows, but what he tweets can be very interesting, to say the least. Here are some highlight tweets that I’ve noticed in the past few weeks that have stood out to me:

 

What a joke. Jan. 20 Trump tweeted about the Women’s March and how women should “get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months.” Are you kidding me? First of all, the grammar nerd in me has to point out that you’re the president and obviously don’t know how to structure a sentence using a comma. Second of all, Mr. Trump, what the hell have you done for women?

Since December of 2017 at least 15 women have come forward to accuse Trump of sexual misconduct or assault, according to CNN. Whether it’s being a creep in the ladies’ room at a pageant or behind locked doors with a microphone on, Trump has proven himself to value women as much as he values poor people. For those of you who don’t get the comparison, he doesn’t give a shit. Period. Seeing all of these women coming forward and finally having their voices heard is so empowering, but the fact that the president is still in the White House, instead of behind bars because of his actions, is just as sickening as that tweet.

President Trump tweeted about Holocaust Remembrance Day. I find the last comment of “Never Again!” sooooooo interesting. I’m not going to go so far as to directly compare Trump to Hitler, but when you analyze some of Trump’s political strategies, you can’t deny some similarities. Need an example? Hitler’s campaign slogan was “Make Germany great again!” Do you see it? Do you see the resemblance? Change one little word and then somehow the slogan starts to look a lot less appealing than it already does.

Not convinced? How about the fact that Hitler tirelessly discredited all the media outlets much like Trump does. In fact, Trump has done such an effective job of saying all media outlets are “fake news” that a Michigan man threatened to shoot up CNN Jan. 23 because of “fake news” allegations. But you didn’t see Trump addressing this brainwashed event.

Now, I realize that as president, Trump needs to acknowledge days in remembrance for tragedies such as the Holocaust. However, that doesn’t mean I can have any respect for him just because he posts an acknowledgement of this tragedy when he is inciting division among races and degrading media outlets when he isn’t happy about a news story.

Honestly thinking about what all comes out of this man’s mind is quite tiring. To this tweet about Democrats interested in obstruction, I would just like to point out that one difference between the Democrat and Republican parties is Republicans have a position of strong military while Democrats have a strong position on education. Just because the Democrats don’t want your wall to go up doesn’t mean they’re obstructing anything. It’s a common practice of back and forth before putting a policy in place.

My last rant about Trump doesn’t come with a tweet but a lack of one. By now, everyone in Michigan is probably aware of the nationwide coverage of Larry Nassar and his sexual abuse of his gymnastic patients. How is it that Trump can start a Twitter war with Jay-Z but can’t acknowledge this beyond awful news story, especially when he always feels the need to butt his opinion in on less important news events. Is it possible that he doesn’t want to state anything about Nassar because he knows he will face the backlash of thousands of women because Trump himself has been accused of sexual misconduct? Is it a coincidence or possibly a strategic move on his part to save himself from further torment?
