So how’d everyone do on the “follow Trump on Twitter for one week” challenge? Were you surprised by anything he said, or by any claims he made? Did you see anything that wasn’t covered via your normal news diet?
Let’s take a trip down memory lane, and look at some highlights we got right from the horse’s
“The Fake News Media has NEVER been more Dishonest or Corrupt than it is right now. There has never been a time like this in American History. Very exciting but also, very sad! Fake News is the absolute Enemy of the People and our Country itself!”
Editor’s Note: Standard chilling stuff from a relentless liar.
“George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife’s success & angry that I, with her help, didn’t give him the job he so desperately wanted. I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!”
Editor’s Note: Dignity, always dignity.
“It is my pleasure to announce that @StephenMoore, a very respected Economist, will be nominated to serve on the Fed Board. I have known Steve for a long time – and have no doubt he will be an outstanding choice!”
Editor’s Note (Ron Howard Narration): He was not very respected.
“No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
Editor’s Note: Beyond us not being able to see the actual report yet (if ever), the summary alone straight-up concludes that obstruction charges cannot be dismissed.
If you found this exercise to be eye-opening in any way, and would like to consider expanding your Twitter habit, I’d love to suggest a few other accounts that are well worth a follow:
Kevin Kruse (Princeton historian and Twitter Jedi)
Jayson Bradley (a pastor struggling with Trumpism and modern evangelical culture)
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (take a minute to suppress your deep, primal need to mansplain, and try actually listening to her)
George Conway (husband of Bellatrix Lestrange and recent comedy legend)
Sarah Ford (I’m slightly partial, but her feed is no joke)
