Trump trolls massively on Twitter

Trump is using Twitter to antagonize his opponents to get them so worked up they go out of their minds. They hate being treated like jerks by someone they regard as a super-jerk. He ruins their world like the Crystalline Entity. And since their world is ruined by Trump then everyone's world must be ruined. To see this working -- and who wouldn't want that? -- click through Trump's Twitter and view responses to his provocation. Actually, they do this anyway, and it's why being blocked by Trump on Twitter is a matter for federal courts. It prevents them from being obnoxious directly. It does not prevent them from following Trump and just sitting there shutting the f up. No, that is not possible. They demand their right to be obnoxious. The preferred form is text on pictures. Put together by people with more clarity than they're capable themselves. All of those are countered with opposing text on pictures presentations. It's a mess. It's chaos. Trump promotes chaos.

Meet people at their level. They want to act like three-year-olds? Treat them like three-year-olds. It drives them bonkers (short trip, I know). More truth, less indulgence. Maybe we can turn this ship around.

More like a short putt.

And the Eminent Mr Surber agrees with Chip.

They'll obsess over this, rather than his SCUS pick.

Trump must smash the press in order to save it.

deborah said...

Just so, chick. Along with LOL Cats, there should be an LOL Trump. Mine would read, 'Im in ur hed eating ur brainz.'

It is a lot of fun.

I remember during the run up to the election when Ed and I were the ones who were all the way behind Trump. We took a lot of shit from a lot of people.

I believe we were vindicated. Totally.

The God Emperor has been everything I thought he would be.

God bless him on this Supreme Court Day. And God Bless the United States of America.

I backed Trump from day one. I still have a Trump/Pence lawn sign up.

Sixty Grit said...

I wavered, to be sure, found him coarse, crude, altogether too New Yorkish, but then I remembered that I know a guy who, although he is from Brooklyn not Queens, knows the deal. In fact they could be twins, as near as I can tell. Trump is da man.

Glad to hear it AllenS. I include you in with the in crowd.

Just read back to the election and check out some of the takes from the Ted Cruz fans. It is pretty funny now when Donald Trump is the most conservative President since Coolidge.

It unfolded pretty much as I predicted. Trump is not a perfect vessel. But he is everything the conservatives claimed they were but in fact were not.

Once he appoints Barret to the Court he will put the final nail in the coffin of the Rhino's and the GOPe.

Cruz - spit.

I supported Cruz. Still do, as I think he would be a fine President. I will admit Cruz's performance at the convention was childish, but he seems a far better supporter of Trump now than most of the GOP.

I always thought Trump would be a good President. Most of you probably won't believe me, that I always thought he would win the primary and general. I just preferred Cruz, and thought it reasonable to support my preference.

My complaints at the time was the supporters. With Sixty, I found them coarse, crude, and altogether too Yankee. I was wrong there. It's the opposition that's batshit crazy. Now they are becoming violent, and that won't work out well for them if it continues.

Alas, the GOP has lost me. I may lean their way, but they have to earn every vote now. I felt this way from the moment they demanded Trump sign a pact to support whoever the winner would be. I never seen the request for it to be in writing made before, and the only person that has lived up to the pact is Donald Trump (yeah Cruz - spit!). That's the point that Trump got my complete support. It as simple as "promise made, promise kept" vs "fool me once, shame on you I won't fall for that again". The batshit Dems won't get my vote, but if you want to win in my part of Texas, you better show your support for Trump. That goes for Ted Cruz too (and Cruz does support Trump's re-election in 2020).

Cruz trolling media via Twitter: "I'm told Mike Lee has been spotted flying to Washington today...."

Trooper, Take off the crown of thorns. You and ed took a lot of shit because you were insufferable assholes.
