Trump’s Corner – Jan. 22, 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:

*Insert mocking Trump voice here.* Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Wow. Such a presidential thing to say. And if I’m being honest, your past actions lead me to believe that being smart may not be the strongest asset you possess. I mean, you looked into the sun during the solar eclipse of 2017 after every scientist in America told the entire population not to.

And then we go to the follow-up tweet of your claiming to be a genius! Not just any genius, a stable genius! What a miraculous discovery. But you know what I’ve heard? Real geniuses don’t need to defend their smarts like Trump did, because they know their intellectual value and don’t need external validation for themselves. But please, Mr. Trump, continue to boast about your genius on winning the presidency because you just end up looking like a fool.

So, Chrysler is moving its RAM truck production from Mexico to Michigan in 2020 according to Business Insider, which will bring in more jobs to our state, which is beyond fabulous. But you know what really gets me about Trump’s tweet about this change? “The voters in Michigan are very happy they voted for Trump/Pence.”

First of all, no, we are not. Or at least I’m not and will never be happy that your name is going down in history as the 45th President of the United States. Second of all, what did you have to do with Chrysler making this decision? I’ve searched for a direct involvement of this move to credit you with any work that would make Michiganders happy with your association, and I can’t find anything. Just because something positive happens while you’re in office, doesn’t mean you should be taking credit for it.

You mean the rich corporations that will trodden upon the middle class and poor that’ll try to eliminated the middle class altogether first? Yeah, that sounds more like it.

President Trump allegedly called Haiti a “shithole” of a country, which is what prompted this defensive tweet. Here’s what gets me: No one, not Trump and not even a member of the Republican party, will even take ownership for this awful statement. If that’s what Trump said, be a man and take ownership for your actions. Apologize for your words and try to repair a relationship with the country and the people. Don’t sit behind your phone trying to defend yourself and blaming the “Dems” because you don’t want to own up to your faults. Get your shit together and start running this country so that others around the world can start to take us seriously again.
