While most of Washington was covered in snow, President Donald Trump seemed bored and lonely, opting to randomly tweet about Stria, Jeff Bezos and a particularly racist anti-Native American tweet.
Trump began his evening with a dull statement about Syria that didn’t seem to garner the attention he desired.
Starting the long overdue pullout from Syria while hitting the little remaining ISIS territorial caliphate hard, and from many directions. Will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms. Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds. Create 20 mile safe zone….# p #3_16 # ad skipped = true #

….Likewise, do not want the Kurds to provoke Turkey. Russia, Iran and Syria have been the biggest beneficiaries of the long term U.S. policy of destroying ISIS in Syria – natural enemies. We also benefit but it is now time to bring our troops back home. Stop the ENDLESS WARS!# p #6_16 # ad skipped = true #

Out of his 57 million followers, Trump usually can easily score at least 20,000 retweets. These struggled to reach 17,000.
He pivoted into attack mode, in another strange attack on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post. It’s never been uncovered if Trump is more jealous of Bezos’ money or more angry with the lack of favorable coverage, but he hate-tweets both Bezos and the Post regularly.
So sorry to hear the news about Jeff Bozo being taken down by a competitor whose reporting, I understand, is far more accurate than the reporting in his lobbyist newspaper, the Amazon Washington Post. Hopefully the paper will soon be placed in better & more responsible hands!# p #11_16 # ad skipped = true #

Finally, the president pivoted to an outright racist and anti-Native American comment about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).
“If Elizabeth Warren, often referred to by me as Pocahontas did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen, with her husband dressed in full Indian garb, it would have been a smash!” Trump tweeted.
Trump never seems to understand that while he mocks Warren, he’s insulting all Native people while doing so.
