Trump's Twitter Tantrum for Today. Wants intelligence chiefs and media to apologize to him for revealing that he is Putin's puppet.

This is in response to Woodward's appearance on Fox News today when he said this:
You know I think most of us have great affection in our hearts for Bob Woodward based on his work on Watergate.

But these days he seems more and more to be drifting away from his journalistic roots and closer and closer to the kind of conservatism that I think would horrify his younger self.

And the fact that he voiced these comments on Fox News is not lost on me either.

No, if the intelligence chiefs owe ANYBODY an apology it is the American people for not doing more to let them know that Donald Trump was Putin's bitch well before the election.

If they had done that perhaps we would not now be facing the inauguration of a thin skinned man child, whose arrogance and impulsivity threatens our national security and the future of our country.

Speaking of thin skinned impulsivity, Trump also just tweeted this:
That's right folks. Your future president is allowing himself to be trolled by a late night comedy show.

As for Bob Woodward perhaps he should take a look at this before he decides that the intelligence agencies are being unfair to Donald Trump.
And this is only what we know so far.

I have a feeling it is only the tip of the iceberg.

    Trump seems confused by the difference between NBC News and NBC Entertainment. And why is he attacking either one while attacking one specific program? Simply to lay the groundwork, once again, for lack of trust in one network or one news outlet or another. He does it constantly, consistently, in his tweets, in his news conferences --the failing New York Times, CNN, NBC, etc. So that, in the end, the public is supposed to only trust one news source: Donald Trump.

    The last two paragraphs tells you that Trump tweets has power

    Washington Post
    Trump warned Republicans that if the party splinters or slows his agenda, he is ready to use the power of the presidency — and Twitter — to usher his legislation to passage.

    “The Congress can’t get cold feet because the people will not let that happen,” Trump said during the interview with The Post.

    Trump said his plan for replacing most aspects of Obama’s health-care law is all but finished. Although he was coy about its details — “lower numbers, much lower deductibles” — he said he is ready to unveil it alongside Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

    “It’s very much formulated down to the final strokes. We haven’t put it in quite yet but we’re going to be doing it soon,” Trump said. He noted that he is waiting for his nominee for secretary of health and human services, Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), to be confirmed. That confirmation rests with the Senate Finance Committee, which has not yet scheduled a hearing...

    “We’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said. “There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That’s not going to happen with us.”

    People covered under the law “can expect to have great health care. It will be in a much simplified form. Much less expensive and much better.”....

    Moving ahead, Trump said lowering drug prices is central to lowering health costs nationally — and will make it a priority for him as he uses his bully pulpit to shape policy.

    When asked how exactly he would force drug manufacturers to comply, Trump said part of his approach would be public pressure “just like on the airplane,” a nod to his tweets about Lockheed Martin’s F-35 fighter jet, which Trump said was too costly....

    What an ass. Trump said in an interview that he's started off "trusting" both Angela Merkel of Germany and Putin. Not that he was equating them, but it didn't look good. Germany is a strong ally of ours. Not Putin.

    Anyone who reads the intel blogs and European papers knows that Putin is gunning for Merkel. The neo-Nazis in the other Euro countries are, too, and Marine Le Pen (running for Fr. pres and always looking to get Russia money/aid) is part of it. I think Trump is also gunning for Merkel. He thinks he's so smart as he plays games and looks for ways to punish people who are the real good guys. He doesn't see how much damage his ego games are doing.

    2. " He doesn't see how much damage his ego games are doing."
      I disagree. I think he revels in it. He wants to see his enemies (anyone who doesn't worship him) punished, embarrassed, humiliated.

      The accompanying damage is his proof that he succeeded. Any other negative consequences of his actions are either somebody else's fault (like that of the person he attacked) or actually a good thing which everyone else is too stupid too understand.

      He could probably walk a quarter of a mile. *I* could walk a quarter of a mile.

      But I suspect he won't. Because to walk would be to expose him to sniper fire. I'm sure that little orange turd is deathly afraid he will be assassinated. They all think the "libruls" are too chicken to do it. Besides, they don't own any guns, right? No, it's his own people he's afraid of. Plus foreign governments. A LOT of foreign governments. I'm sure he thinks China and Russia would target him. Yeah, even Russia. Plus there are so many more. But he'll probably claim the excuse that he is hiding from the public because ISIS is out to get him.

      Man, I can't wait until SNL really starts eviscerating him. Saturday was their best yet. But he just can't stop and will write more for them each week. I'm sorry Alec Baldwin doesn't want to miss quality time with his family but I so wish he'd be a regular on SNL. They would have an opener for him every week.

    We got out of the Army at the same time as a bunch of hubby's friends, and there were three couples (including us) pregnant without insurance that year. Everyone got care, one way or another, and no one was impoverished thereby. Our family's had two emergency room visits that ended up including hospitalizations without insurance as well -- both times we got a bill, but the hospital had information on how to minimize it and worked with us to set up a reasonable monthly payment on it. (Our church actually ended up paying one of them -- chili supper with matching funds, memory serves.)

    8. Anonymous4:59 AM

      To the people who think running to an emergency room with no insurance is a good idea, I say you are crazy. Those options available to hospitals also included the hospital absorbing costs but then charging more for everyone with insurance so that insurance rates kept going up. It was not a good thing that people "used" the emergency room unnecessarily. Medicare with a supplement more or less solved that problem for senior citizens. The ACA has been an attempt, albeit with problems provided to us by the GOP, for everyone else to purchase insurance. Now we're likely to lose both. Do you think that showing up in the emergency room knowing you have no way to pay for the services is a proper way to run a country's medical care system? Do you really think that your fellow church members should foot your bills and then have their insurance rates go up? And a spaghetti dinner cannot raise enough money to cover a surgery bill.

    9. ERs are required to stabilize a patient, not design and arrange a long-term plan for chronic conditions. ERs are also the most expensive way to provide stabilizing care that might not have been needed if affordable insurance with office visits were available.

    10. Anonymous8:30 AM

      Instead of pouring more money into hospital coffers and doctors and their ultra high end BMW's and Mercedes.... maybe lawmakers need to address why these supposed health care providers feel like they can gouge every last cent out of their customers.

      Start going after the Hospital and Doctors groups. They have had unfettered access to the cookie jar for far too long.

      There is no reason for these costs to be so high to begin with.

    11. People like 8:30 think they should be paid what they are worth, but no one else should.

      They think going to the doctor should be like the check out line at the store. You pay for the 15 min. of time you use. No thought about how many years it took for that doctor to attain that education to be able to treat you or how much money (and student loans) it took to pay for that education.

      They think doctors should get paid, maybe what? $20 an hour? So they should only have to pay $5 for their visit.

      They probably also think doctors only work an 8 hour shift. Never mind they go home and spend a few hours going over the latest medical journals to keep up with new advances and techniques.

      BTW I might say the same about lawyers or teachers. (Teachers even pay for instructional materials out of their own pockets. At least the doctors don't have to buy their own tongue depressors.)

      People like 8:30 are those low information Deplorables with no critical thinking skills that can't see the big picture or estimate long term consequences to decisions. You know. Your average Drumpf Republican.

This is just his excuse to lift the sanctions and ignore the reason they were put in place in 2014: the Crimea. He's so kissing Putin's ass on the Ukraine and doesn't give a rat's ass about Putin taking over other countries as long as Exxon can get sanctions lifted for that 64 million acres they want to extract oil from. And because Trump's fans are so dumb, they'll think he's actually done something important and for the first time ever re nukes.

On the one hand, a single tweet can cripple opponents, activate supporters, move markets, and subsume the news cycle. On the other, they're a window into Trump's wee-hours, unfiltered id. But when his tweets are full of half-truths, distortions, and often bold-faced lies, should journalists treat them as normal presidential utterances, or something else? Cognitive linguist George Lakoff believes that the press must understand how Trump uses language if we're to responsibly report on his tweets, not just magnify their misinformation. He talks with Brooke about the categories he's come up with for thinking about Trump tweets."

    Podcast. Well worth a listen and take notes.


    "George Lakoff, a cognitive linguist, on the taxonomy of Trump’s tweets — in other words, how to analyze the techniques Trump uses in his tweets.

    Lakoff identifies these Trump tweeting techniques:

    Pre-emptive framing
    Trial Balloon
    Arguing from the specific to the general
    Direct vs. systemic causation

    Lakoff advises journalists to handle Trump’s tweets by telling the truth first, then mentioning and dissecting the tweet, and, finally, continuing to go back to the substance and truth."

    We must continue to refer to Drumpf as "The Minority President."

    Talking about Drumpf normalizes him. So stop it!

    When you repeat what Drumpf says, you're HELPING HIM.

    "Without knowing it, many Democrats, progressives and members of the news media help Donald Trump every day. The way they help him is simple: they spread his message.

    Think about it: every time Trump issues a mean tweet or utters a shocking statement, millions of people begin to obsess over his words. Reporters make it the top headline. Cable TV panels talk about it for hours. Horrified Democrats and progressives share the stories online, making sure to repeat the nastiest statements in order to refute them. While this response is understandable, it works in favor of Trump.

    When you repeat Trump, you help Trump. You do this by spreading his message wide and far."

    "When you repeat Trump, you help Trump.

    In the coming weeks and months, I’ll use this space to provide simple, practical advice on how Democrats, progressives and conscientious journalists can use the principles of effective framing to expose and undermine Trump’s propaganda. Knowledge is power! We must arm ourselves with the fundamentals of effective political communication. We must know our values and frame the debate – and avoid helping Trump.

    When you repeat Trump, you help Trump."

    We have gone from "Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall" to "Mr. Putin, whatever you think is best." #flexibility #USSR #Motherland

      The irony of the Trump asskissers.

      Doesn't he realize he's increasing the viewership of SNL and specifically Baldwin's part?
