President Donald Trump (Twitter)

Police officers cheered as President Donald Trump urged them to use petty violence against suspected criminals — and social media users reacted in outrage and horror.

“When you see these towns and when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, I said, please don’t be too nice,” Trump told police officers Friday during a speech in Long Island.

“Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody — don’t hit their head,” he added. I said, you can take the hand away, okay?”

Twitter users weren’t sure whether to be more appalled by the president or the police officers who roared in approval.

Trump is losing to Biden again and again in a desperate attempt to avoid being forever labeled a loser: columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Monday, columnist Eugene Robinson says that President Trump is suffering loss after loss to President-elect Joe Biden in his attempt to overturn the election's results. "Trump was declared the loser slightly after Election Day; he loses repeatedly and decisively in court; he loses in recounts and then demands re-recounts, which he will also lose," Robinson writes. "So much losing!"

According to Robinson, Trump's motivation may be the fact that Republicans in general did well in 2020, whereas he did not, getting "creamed" by 6 million votes.

In Trump's egocentric worldview in which absolutely everything is about oneself, the danger lies in the fact that he "sees himself as the boss and sees all those for whom he has done favors as his vassals," Robinson writes.

GOP lawmakers buried for meltdown over Biden appointee’s ‘mean tweets’ after years of Trump Twitter insults

Published

On Tuesday morning, the panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" expressed both amusement and disgust with Republican lawmakers who are claiming one of President-elect Joe Biden's nominees may have a tough time being approved because she has a history of writing "mean tweets" about their actions and policies.

As host Joe Scarborough observed, those same lawmakers just spent four years either defending -- or pretending they were unaware -- of Donald Trump's habit of slurring and attacking his opponents or detractors on Twitter.

At issue are tweets that were written by Neera Tanden who is currently president of the Center for American Progress and has been nominated by the incoming president to head up the Office of Management and Budget.

Trump demands GOP Georgia governor ‘call off’ election in new Twitter outburst

Published

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted a new demand for Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) to "do something" and overturn the results of the election. Specifically, Trump wants him to "check signatures and count signed envelopes" and then "call off [the] election" because "It won't be needed" — presumably meaning call off the Georgia Senate runoffs because the "real" vote count would show Republicans won outright.

Do something @BrianKempGA. You allowed your state to be scammed. We must check signatures and count signed envelopes against ballots. Then call off election. It won’t be needed. We will all WIN! https://t.co/UiJrlyBGiK
