Donald Trump is known for his late night and early morning rage tweets. He frequently uses social media as a platform to attack his perceived enemies, launching petty insults at all times of day.
In a recent interview with Piers Morgan, Donald Trump admitted that he sometimes tweets from bed. Considering the fact that he had extra TVs put in the White House bedroom and that he’s known to live-tweet Fox News, it seems likely that, incapable of independent thought, he often launches into social media tizzy fits due to what he witnesses on the television screen.
‘In an interview with Britain’s ITV channel, he appeared to appreciate the wide impact of his postings in Twitter and said that he needed social media to communicate with voters in the era of what he termed fake news.
‘“If I don’t have that form of communication I can’t defend myself,” Trump said in an interview broadcast on Sunday. “I get a lot of fake news, a lot of news that is very false or made up.”
‘When asked about whether he was lying in bed with his phone thinking of how to wind people up, Trump said: “Well, perhaps sometimes in bed, perhaps sometimes at breakfast or lunch or whatever, but generally speaking during the early morning, or during the evening I can do whatever, but I am very busy during the day, very long hours. I am busy.”
‘“I will sometimes just dictate out something really quickly and give it to one of my people to put it on,” he said.’
When Trump says “busy,” it’s important to remember that he means “busy” by the standards of a lazy geriatric scam artist who has never done a day of actual work in his life.
Since he has trouble reading and understanding complex tasks, it’s more likely that Trump spends his day whining, blaming others, and talking on the phone. That tuckers him out pretty quickly, and then it’s off to golf again while taxpayers line his pockets.
Another thing that’s extremely relevant to his use of Twitter is that he’s a liar. He lies constantly, peddles in conspiracy theories, and frequently retweets hate accounts. He likes Twitter because the sentences are short and he can get a little jolt of feel-good confirmation bias when his mindless sycophants chime in with support. That way, he doesn’t have to deal with nasty journalists and their pursuit of “facts.”
Americans overwhelmingly want Trump to stop tweeting—nearly 70 percent. Donald Trump’s social media use may allow him to speak to the public directly, but that certainly doesn’t do him any favors. It puts his ignorance, stupidity, and maliciousness on full display, and most people do not like what they see. Even Fox agrees:
If Donald Trump wants to “defend himself,” he should stop being the #1 spreader of “fake news” in the country. The Republican Party is anti-science, anti-facts, and anti-reality—and marching in lockstep with the moronic pathological liar they put in the White House.
