Morning Tweets

1st & 2nd Tweets

PR | Ryan Zinke

Zinke, Secretary of the Interior, is leaving in the midst of concerns over ethics violations. It is unknown whether he he has resigned or has been fired. See The Hill for complete details. As an aside, why is the president referring to his administration in the third person? Why does he not say “I will be … ” or “My administration will be … “? Odd. If he’s actually writing his own tweet, it is just odd. If he isn’t, who else would be tweeting as the president of the United States?


3rd Tweet

Misinformation / Redirection

The president announces another “historical fact” from Trump World. Seldom are those “facts” true in reality. This tweet is based on no credible research, and is a public misinformation and redirection attempt. 

Russia + Clinton + DNC = presidential apprehension regarding investigations into his campaign and Russian interactions.


4th Tweet

Kicking Someone When They’re Down

This is a mean-spirited, taunting post that serves no purpose, and fails to deliver any worthwhile meaning into the lives of Americans. Is this really all a president has to think about today?


5th Tweet

Another Redirection

Who reported the missing texts?

Is it possible those texts detail the criminal actions of a presidential candidate?
