Trump’s tweets have degenerated from ‘pithy insults’ into ‘rambling’ and ‘unintelligible’ nonsense: analysis

Donald Trump

If you’ve found that President Donald Trump’s tweets haven’t been as successful in dominating the news cycle lately, you aren’t imagining things.

An analysis of the president’s tweets by reporter Joanna Weiss published by Politico has found that the quality of Trump’s tweets over the past two years has gone down significantly, as his usual “pithy insults” have been replaced by “rambling” and “unintelligible self-absorption.”

She has found that Trump’s tweets about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election have been particularly bad, as it is often difficult to determine what, if anything, the president is actually trying to communicate.

“Robert Mueller and Leakin’ Lyin’ James Comey are Best Friends, just one of many Mueller Conflicts of Interest,” reads one tweet cited by Weiss as remarkably ineffective. “And bye the way, wasn’t the woman in charge of prosecuting Jerome Corsi (who I do not know) in charge of ‘legal’ at the corrupt Clinton Foundation?”

The cumulative impression communicated by these tweets, argues Weiss, shows a gradual mental degeneration of the president’s communication skills.

“His feed by now is clogged with tweets piled on tweets, rambling rants; he’s a guy standing on the street corner whose constant patter you can’t ignore, but you can’t actually follow, either,” she writes.

Conservative suggests Trump’s racist rhetoric will incite worse than ‘send her home’ chants: ‘One shudders to wonder’:

Published

on

In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Kathleen Parker said the refusal by Republican lawmakers and the evangelical community to condemn Donald Trump's racist rhetoric is paving the way for something far worse than mere "send her home" chants.

Under a headline that bluntly states, "Those who don’t condemn Trump’s racism are complicit in his bigotry," Parker gets right to her opinion of the president, writing, "Going out on a limb here: President Trump is a racist. And a sexist. And a xenophobic nationalist. Among other things. Not to name call or anything."

BUSTED: Leaked drug exec emails showed them encouraging opioid abuse to the point people would eat them ‘like Doritos’

Published

on

On Friday, the Washington Post published excerpts from a damning series of emails released in a landmark case in Cleveland around the irresponsibility of drug manufacturers and suppliers in contributing to the opioid crisis.

In one email exchange, Victor Borelli, an account manager for pharmaceuticals corporation Mallinckrodt, told KeySource Medical vice president Steve Cochrane that 1,200 bottles of 30mg Oxycodone tablets had been shipped, to which Cochrane replied, "Keep 'em comin'! Flyin' out of there. It's like people are addicted to these things or something. Oh, wait, people are..." and Borelli responded, "Just like Doritos keep eating. We'll make more."

Here’s the ugly racist history behind tipping — and how it still persists today

Published

on

On Saturday, writing for Politico, minister and civil rights activist Rev. Dr. William Barber applauded House Democrats' plans to not only raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2024, but eliminate the much lower "tipped wage" of $2.13 an hour and require tipped workers to also be paid at least the minimum.

This is important, wrote Barber, because the roots of businesses forcing their workers to rely on tips for a proper wage is deeply rooted in America's history of racial tension.
