This is how I feel too. He doesn't come across as a collaborative leader. More like the kind of boss who won't accept criticism, will fire you for criticizing him, and so anyone working for him puts up a wall (hehe). I hate being around those kind of people.

I really wouldn't be surprised at some sort of soft coup, where the various agencies dig up evidence to impeach this guy. That would really be a sad day for America, but the fact that this nitwit is going to be POTUS is sad for America and our allies.

You mean except for all those people he picked for cabinet positions who have been publicly disagreeing with him?

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

for the record, while I like the idea of our leader using Twitter to stay in casual contact with the masses, I do hope that the petty tweeting stops once he's in office. Unless he just exposes the fact that being President of the United States is the easiest job on the planet, just a figurehead for the Pentavirate: The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, and Colonel Sanders before he went tits up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee beady eyes, and that smug look on his face. "Oh, you're gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!"

Not surprised in the slightest. At this point, it is most likely what will be his downfall.

People have been saying Trump will stop with the Tweeting after every major milestone during the election. Why on earth would you think things would be any different post-inauguration?

Though props on the So I Married an Axe Murderer reference

This made me laugh on Twitter - titled "Trump summed up in three tweets"

As Jack Donaghy. That guy is my kind of true leader.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

When a guy can't work alongside damn near anyone that he doesn't actually appoint, then there has to be a problem that lies within. It's like that student in class that for whatever reason or another can't sit by anyone because he or she doesn't get along with others.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

So ... how does this work?





(Note that in addition to quoting a nonexistent tweet by an unused account, @ivanka isn't his daughter.)

It's like he's conversing with invisible strangers.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

I feel shame that I'm seeing these Tweet before anyone else. I check his account, and noticed that last night.

Replying to @drgoodspine was weird. And then I figured he accidently put a space between Ivanka and Trump (which is understandable).

I'm surprised @drgoodspine only gained 100 followers. I thought I'd check his # and it'd be up to 100k this morning.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

Shutup Don. You lost the popular vote. Lots (most?) of your voters did it for the good of their party, not for you. Under 50% is about right.

I saw Donald's tweet earlier in the evening. I opened that user's profile. The user DID have an account with only a handful of followers and tweets, but the account was locked so it was impossible to see what their tweets actually were. Looks like they purged the account and removed the profile picture shortly afterwards.

He exhibits symptoms of mental instability, but let's be positive and give him a chance.

I don't know. The polls all said he would lose and yet here we are.

The polls were wrong one time. Trump is wrong multiple times a day. I'll go with the poll track record.

Re: He Said WHAT? The Trump Tweet Thread

Looks like he's still going after John Lewis, since he also boycotted GWB's inauguration. I believe there was a little ire in the country due to the whole Supreme Court deciding the election.

Boy, this is a real stable person we should be handing nuclear launch codes to.

I love that bikers are volunteering to protect a billionaire who could afford to hire them* to act as security.

* That's not to say that he would actually pay them.
