I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017
...to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 29, 2017
These tweets were apparently in response to MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski making a remark about Trump's "teensy" hands.
Honestly, I don't even know where to begin regarding this utterly asinine development, so I'll just convey a few random thoughts.
- There were many things I admired about President George W. Bush, but one in particular was the dignity he exuded despite the abject hatred and maniacal sentiments levied towards him. Never once did Bush even acknowledge the leftist media's brutal (not to mention outrageously unfair and utterly false) indictments of his character and intellect. To respond in kind would be, in Bush's mind, beneath the dignity of the office.
- The Trump tweets also further the narrative of his propensity to demean and mistreat women. However, I believe this is more an issue of Trump's overall personality. Did you watch any of the GOP presidential debates? The vast majority of the candidates were men. Trump was just as mean, nasty and condescending towards them.
- First Lady Melania Trump essentially stood by her husband in this incident, indicating his reputation for hitting back ten times as hard as he's initially struck. Such a stance would seem to fly in the face of her platform to stop cyber bullying.
- Speaking of bullying, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders explained away this incident by saying the President will not be "bullied" and thus will "fight fire with fire." Some folks are going to have to get their narratives straight. Either Trump is a fearless leader who's in Washington to take a proverbial blow torch to politics as usual or he's so vulnerable that he's capable of being "bullied." Can't have it both ways.
