Perhaps they need safe spaces and prayer rugs. No, wait, they are liberals. Forget the prayer rugs.

Great. The lobbyists hate his tweets. That’s the way it should be.

The liberals brag about fake transparency, then when they get unvarnished truth they can’t handle it.

Basically, liberals are saying “We can’t handle the truth. We can’t deal with facts and reality. Please, oh please, filter our news for us and tell us what we are supposed to think and do.”

Listen to this twisted thinking by worthless Trent Lott:

“A lot of our allies are very nervous about whether they can count on us,” said Trent Lott, a former Republican senator, now a lobbyist in Washington. “And a lot of our enemies now feel like they have a way in.”

He added: “The tweets unnerve me. I see how you can use that to go around and over the traditional media and how many people get his tweets. But it unnerves me because I’m kind of old school. I don’t put anything in writing that I don’t know who is going to see it.”

Lott said Washington tended to get much more done when people weren’t embarrassed. “I prefer to communicate with a wink and nod,” Lott continued. “I am an advocate of smoke-filled back rooms — I was very much an advocate over the years, the old conference committee meetings. That’s where I used to tell my colleagues, ‘We’ll fix it there.’”

Trump has nearly 19 million followers on twitter which he reaches directly, not including retweets and media coverage of his tweets.

A TV show like Meet the Press only reaches 1.5 million people on a good day. The old media can’t compete. Trump is the new media.

I look forward to news WITHOUT the “reliable” anonymous sources leaks. PRESIDENT TRUMP is draining the MSM swamp.

I want Trump to continue to tweet! I joined Twitter just to be connected to him. I have only a few people that I follow on Twitter. Majority are the Trump family.

I need more winning. When the cultural marxist movement is in a death rattle, I may be tired of winning.

[Lott continued. “I am an advocate of smoke-filled back rooms — I was very much an advocate over the years, the old conference committee meetings. That’s where I used to tell my colleagues, ‘We’ll fix it there.’”]

They “fixed it” alright and brought our nation to its knees.

I don’t put anything in writing that I don’t know who is going to see it.”


In other words, how can I lie to one person if everyone knows what I said (wrote).

The answer is don’t lie. It makes life easier.

Like Gollum, losing his precious ring, they are deprived of their beloved techniques of spinning and smearing. What good are lies when no one is listening?! BEST ELECTION EVER!

Strange, their hero FDR did the same thing with his “Fireside Chats”. What PE Trump is doing is just the 21st C version of that.
