Trump has lost more than half of his Twitter interactions in the past year: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump once had the power to tweet and score results, get someone elected, or move Republicans on legislation. But that power seems to be losing its heft.

According to Axios, Trump’s monthly interaction rate has tumbled significantly, data from CrowdTangle proved. Twitter and Facebook both cut down on fake accounts and those run by bots. Many lost Twitter followers, especially the president. But now his interactions are taking a hit.

Axios speculated it might be an indication his powerful communications tool could be wearing off or the way he uses it is no longer useful.

The month Trump was elected, his interaction rate was 0.55 percent. In June 2017 he had fallen to 0.32%. This month, he dropped again, to 0.16 percent.

The top Trump tweet of his presidency was the video doctored to show him taking down a man with a CNN logo for a head. It had over 930,000 interactions.

The second and third most popular interactions were insults and threats to Kim Jong Un.

Lewandowski’s testimony will let Democrats build Nixon-like articles of impeachment: Ex-prosecutor

Aside from that revelation, most of the testimony was unproductive, with Lewandowski lashing out at members of Congress and running interference for the president.

But as former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote on Twitter, these outbursts — and the fact that Trump sanctioned the way that Lewandowski behaved in the hearing — could be the basis for Democrats to write up articles of impeachment against Trump similar to those drafted against Richard Nixon in 1974:

Putin aims a weaponized barb at Trump over Saudi attack – and hits the mark

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.

Rick Wilson obliterates Dems for letting Lewandowski get away with stonewalling: ‘So bad it makes me cringe’

Published

on

Anti-Trump Republican strategist Rick Wilson dropped the hammer on House Democrats Tuesday for letting Trump minion Corey Lewandowski make a mockery of their oversight powers.

After witnessing a House Judiciary Committee hearing that quickly devolved into a circus with Lewandowski stonewalling and evading questions, Wilson unloaded on Democrats for failing in their basic responsibilities in governmental oversight.

"This is outrageous contempt," Wilson wrote. "It isn't just that this scumbag Lewandowski is slapping the committee with it. This is a test, and the Democrats are going to fail it. They're so bad at this it makes me cringe."
