Where does Donald Trump get time to tweet? He spouts off his version of reality regularly and often — at least several times a day.
Last Friday, he Tweeted 59 times, including 33 in just 20 minutes.
It is ironic he calls the mainstream media fake, when most of his Tweets are delusions, distortions or flat out lies.
Trump’s Tweets remind me of “The Emperor’s New Clothes” by Hans Christian Andersen.
In the “Emperor” story, the weavers are con-men who convince the emperor they are using a fine fabric invisible to anyone who is stupid or incompetent. Finally, a child cries out, “But he isn’t wearing anything at all!”
With every Tweet, Trump exposes what most of us already know: There is nothing there. His policies are empty. His character is missing. The man is walking around politically “naked” and his minions like what they see. Or don’t see, in his case.
I am stupefied that Trump’s groupies do not see that he is a con artist and his policies are hurting the world.
I am especially disappointed in the Republican members of Congress who don’t scream out: “What he is doing is wrong!”
