Running off at the beak

I have never followed Donald Trump on Twitter, and I really don’t have to: sooner or later, anything he tweets will end up in my timeline. But there’s very little reason to care about his little sub-paragraph explosions:

I don’t care about the president’s nasty tweets because I’m more concerned about his incoherent foreign policy, his foolishly protectionist trade policy, his shaky grasp of basic economics, his inconsistency on issues like immigration and health care policies and a host of others. Despite a few bright spots like James Mattis, Neil Gorsuch, Nikki Haley and probably Jerome Adams, President Trump is already building his Democratic opponents a solid case in the 2018 elections. Compared to these things, the tweets mean less than the product that comes out of the other end of the bird.

Fortunately for The Donald, the Democrats are constantly finding new ways to crap all over themselves; it’s not really necessary for him to point them out. And there is one saving — well, not grace exactly: desperate would-be Hillary-humpers like Peter Daou (among others, but he’s about the worst) have been reduced to a mixture of incoherent sputtering and outright whining, providing sporadic entertainment.

    Reduced to, aspire to, potato, asado.

    1. I care about his incoherent, petty, nasty tweets, because they are symptomatic of a person who is ill-prepared to hold a job with a terrifying level of power.

    2. Quite right, about the Dems crapping all over themselves. It takes a lot of screwing up to lose to Trump.

    I agree that describes him well and accurately, Holly — I and I am definitely concerned that he’s ill-prepared for the unique leadership role and power wielded by this position. But each new tweet or comment amounts to another — pardon me — brick in that wall. I feel like they’re like multipliers on infinity. Doubled, trebled, quadrupled, whatever: It’s still infinity.

    When we start getting into transfinite numbers, we definitely need to start worrying.
