Trump’s Tweets Are Ruining Him,
But Do His Fans Care?

Commentary, by Noah Rothman

Original Article

Posted By:bemused conservative, 1/3/2018 4:00:51 PM

Phase two of the remaking of Trump. An internal conflict over the trajectory of the GOP’s evolution in the Trump era quietly reached a turning point in late 2017 that has become clear only in hindsight. The “originals”–who joined Trump’s campaign when no other Republican political professionals would–have been purged or sidelined. The president has opted to outsource his legislative priorities to conventional Republicans in Congress, and he has delegated the conduct of foreign affairs to responsible administration officials. The contemptible alt-right and their “America First” allies are beside themselves even as erstwhile Trump skeptics in the GOP are suddenly

Comments:
My 401K is higher than ever. My confidence in President Trump sinks with every inane tweet. As Rothman points out, when written in a focused and coherent style tweets can be useful communication tools. When used to vent one´s spleen, they´re Sad! Sad!
If the Tweeter in Chief can´t control himself, he won´t make it through his term. It´s a sad state of affairs when Kim Jong-Un suddenly sounds more temperate and statemanlike than Donald Trump.

Noah Rothman is a kindred spirit of Bret Stephens and the poster. They are more concerned with dignity than results. I´ll take results every time. Sorry poster, but you will be very happy with the increase in you 401K when you retire. The money will go further than dignity. Dignity isn´t going to put food on the table. Trump is the adult in the room and he is letting the little fat Korean know who the boss is.

The difference between a businessman and a politician is that the businessman gets the job done on time and on budget, and isn´t overly concerned with good manners. The politician talks a lot, promises a lot, but gets nothing done except gather more money and power. But the politician does it oh so eloquently. I´ll take the businessman every time over a lying politician, or a political pundit for that matter.

Sure, President Trump should stop tweeting and act like Jeb or Mitt would, had they been elected. I mean, the Bushes didn´t annoy the legacy media or democrats with tweets, did they?

I´m sure the democrats and their pet poodles in the media would like it a lot if President Trump would just be quiet and let them handle the news....

FACE IT! Noah...The ONLY People who are annoyed by the Tweeting that Pres. Trump does are the Lap Dog, Lick-Spital Enemedia, and their Liberal Overlords. And their problem is mainly, their inability to Control their Narrative.
Make no mistake, they cannot abide their lack of having a ´leash´ on him. They are forced to play second fiddle to Pres. Trump. HE OWNS THEM, and THAT is what galls Them.

I just spoke with a co-worker who left Iran ~30 years ago, but has been talking with friends there this past weekend. He said that Trump´s tweets have been a wonderful source of support to the rebels. They want the world to know and care!

We are finally seeing real action on so many formerly implacable situations...who am I to judge the methods of the man finally making things happen?

These pundits might prefer the calm, cool mien of McCain or Romney, but the truth is they are losers. And though Bush won, he got little done.

As long as Trump keeps moving in the right direction, I´ll have his back. What else can a patriot do?

Noah Rothman. That name sounds rather New Yorkish- Like from down in the diamond district.

I once heard of two guys who got into a buggy whip fight. A buggy whip has a long handle and a short lash (the flexible end). It is made mostly to just make a "pop" behind the horse´s head and never to actually strike the animal. It is a very light instrument, so even a woman´s slight wrist can handle it. But, if you have ever been hit by one, you will regret it. It can cut the skin and the sting of it is devastatingly painful (I know from messing with one as a kid).

So, back to the buggy whip fight; The combatants were young, and tough. They had been around. One guy was highly skilled with his whip and caught the other guy several times, on hands and face. The other guy, got enough of the stings, flipped his whip around and clubbed the living scat out of the other guy with the handle, knocking him silly until he quit. It wasn´t about the the whip that counted - it was how the fighter used it.

Now, on Trump, these "Tweets" are like that buggy whip- Trump is using his like a club while others still don´t get why they are losing the Twitter fight against him- they are supposedly so skilled at Twitter fighting! He is not being ruined by his Tweets- The other guys are. Trump is knocking the living 541T out of them. And they hate it. We, on the other hand, love President Trump for it.

The writer has nothing to say. Thus, in order to make a living as a “writer“, he must sell to the Trump haters. They will pay him to bash Trump.

Whatever things may have once been like, tweets are here to stay, and, like the buggy Whip story above, Trump uses them effectively.

Bravo Mr President. Fie on the frivolous fools, your critics.

I´m very concerned (and frightened) about North Korea (thanks to Bill Clinton´s terrible judgement) AND I wholly approve of and appreciate President Trump´s tweet on the subject, “Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”. Mr. Trump correctly points out the horrific state of the North Korean people under their barbaric leader who devotes what little resources his country has to nuclear weapons, enjoys a regal lifestyle and enriches himself, while even those North Koreans employed by his government are starving to death, something that should be brought to the fore again and again. Thank you President Trump. You are a mensch.

Contemptible Noah Rothman has to pretend the status quo is safe and sound. Without it, he has no income and no friends. Get this, Mr. Rothman. I´m America First because I live in America. I never even heard of the alt-right until Hillary mentioned it in a 2016 speech. You don´t like America First because you´re a parasite, a leech. All the money in the world, all the banks, the Endless War industry, the open borders crowd, insist on America Last--because it´s the only way they can make money. Meaning, they view us as global slaves. There´s absolutely no money behind putting America First. It only gets you voters and the US presidency.

The perception of Trump´s tweets are different depending on how and where your are, if you are a liberal Democrat or a liberal media apparatchik you no doubt wish that Trump would stop tweeting so that only your words would get out to the public, but if you are an ordinary American you know that the reason that Trump is tweeting (using social media) is because he recognizes that´s the only way that he can communicate with the American public and completely avoid the liberal media filter.

Clearly Trump has a sense of humor and the Democrats along with their media allies have none. When Trump makes a joke, the media always misscharacterizes what he said. If Trump mentions a button that is supposedly on his desk the media goes nuts claiming Trump is going to cause nuclear war, while if you remember when Hillary Clinton handed the Russian Foreign Minister a plastic "reset" button it was handled very different by the liberal media.

OXFORD, England — From the comfort of his country estate in Oxford, a distant relative of the Russian literary giant Tolstoy says he has the perfect solution for what ails the United States. America, he declares, needs a monarchy. In fact, Count Nikolai Tolstoy says, more kings, queens and all the frippery that royalty brings would be not just a salve for a superpower in political turmoil, but also a stabilizing force for the world at large. “I love the monarchy,” Count Tolstoy, 82, said as he sat in his lush garden behind an expansive stone house. “Most people think the monarchy is

It turns out that in beer-drinking circles I would be considered unfashionable. Not because I insist on wearing cargo shorts or dad jeans. With the exception of Garrett Oliver, the brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery, what do beer nerds know about stylish clothing anyway? I don’t care much about fashion, either. But I do care about the beer I drink, which apparently would be considered hopelessly uninteresting by those who follow the latest trends. I’m talking about wonderful, thirst-quenching, conversation-inducing beers, the type that you can drink a lot of almost without noticing. Brown ale, for example. Recently, the beer panel tasted 20 examples

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time.

For all of President Trump’s tweeted thunderings about “fake news,” one could be forgiven for thinking that he enjoys spreading it himself. What other explanation can there be for Mr. Trump’s impulse to retweet three half-baked videos from the website of the U.K. fringe group Britain First? When this sort of tweeting bubbles out of the fever swamps, hardly anyone notices anymore. Or they pass it off as an emission from Vladimir Putin’s low-rent Russian propaganda shop. But when it flows from the cellphone of the U.S. President, everyone takes note. Which is why what happened in the wake of President

Who Are Sufi Muslims and Why

Sufism is a mystical form of Islam, a school of practice that emphasizes the inward search for God and shuns materialism. It has produced some of the world’s most beloved literature, like the love poems of the 13th century Iranian jurist Rumi. Its modern-day adherents cherish tolerance and pluralism, qualities that in many religions unsettle extremists. But Sufism, often known as Islamic mysticism, has come under violent attack in recent years. On Friday, militants stormed a Sufi mosque on the Sinai Peninsula, killing at least 305 people in what officials are calling the worst terrorist attack in Egypt’s modern history. The

AIRO — Militants detonated a bomb inside a crowded mosque in the Sinai Peninsula on Friday and then sprayed gunfire on panicked worshipers as they fled, killing at least 305 people and wounding at least 128 others. Officials called it the deadliest terrorist attack in Egypt’s modern history. The scale and ruthlessness of the assault, in an area racked by an Islamist insurgency, sent shock waves across the nation — not just for the number of deaths but also for the choice of target. Attacks on mosques are rare in Egypt, where the Islamic State has targeted Coptic Christian churches and

No short-term political victory is worth the long-term cultural degradation the president is guaranteeing the GOP. The vast majority of commentary about Donald Trump’s tweets centers on Trump: What do they say about his state of mind? Do they signal a change in American policy? Will he follow through on his threats? Is he a master media manipulator or just angry? Is he playing nine-dimensional chess or is he simply undisciplined and impulsive? I want to focus on another question entirely: What are Trump’s tweets doing to the political character of his Republican supporters? I focus on his tweets because

Is health care a right? The United States remains the only developed country in the world unable to come to agreement on an answer. Earlier this year, I was visiting Athens, Ohio, the town in the Appalachian foothills where I grew up. The battle over whether to repeal, replace, or repair the Affordable Care Act raged then, as it continues to rage now. So I began asking people whether they thought that health care was a right. The responses were always interesting. A friend had put me in touch with a forty-seven-year-old woman I’ll call Maria Dutton. She lived with her

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart."

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad.

On Wednesday, two humanitarian groups released a report, detailing how they´ve distributed more than 31,000 gallons of water along dangerous migrant paths in the Arizona desert between 2012 and 2015. In that time frame, they say volunteers have found these stashes of food and water destroyed 415 times - or about two times a week on average. ´Through statistical analysis, video evidence, and personal experience, our team has
