Űber-liberal factions in America continue apace with their pathetic Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Michael Moore tweeted Tuesday: “Trump is not president until 12 noon on Jan. 20th. So we’ll continue to fight hope to find a legal, nonviolent way to stop this madness.” New York Times columnist Paul Krugman similarly tweeted: “We should never accept this as OK. It may be the new normal, but that’s a new normal in which the America we knew and loved is gone.” Then there’s Keith Olbermann, who is advising his viewers not to refer to the incoming commander-in-chief as “President Trump.”
“Our betters” express their undisguised contempt for tens of millions of Americans who voted for Trump with heightened snobbery and condescension. They bury themselves in the most absurd way imaginable screaming impotently into the void.
The President-elect has 17.8 million followers on Twitter as a counter-weight to media bias—a direct line of communication with his supporters—a way to shape his agenda. He recently told CBS’s Lesley Stahl in a 60 Minutes interview, “I’m not saying I love it, but it does get the word out…I have a method of fighting back.” He went on to say he’d be “restrained” in what he tweets as president.
The left is aghast. Julie Davis of The New York Times feels Trump’s use of Twitter is an “unprecedented experiment” that has “opened a window” on the presidency unlike any before. “His habit of making unguarded and unvetted statements direct to the public has fascinating implications. It will affect how the world reads official proclamations from the White House. I’m mystified at the notion that we should somehow ignore what are, by most accounts, completely unrehearsed, un-poll-tested utterances from the mouth of the person who’s about to become president of the United States.”
To be honest President-elect Trump, through the use of 140 characters, has issued some cringe-worthy tweets. The left is counting on more of them in the future to use as a cudgel to denounce and demean Trump.
Enter Seth Meyers; former SNL cast member and host of NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers who made no secret of his loathing of Donald Trump in a blistering 7-minute tirade that was long on invective and short of laughs.
Hot new segment, "TWEETIN' WITH THE PREZ" https://t.co/k3zRRmFWll— Seth Meyers (@sethmeyers) December 21, 2016
“Basically, Donald Trump’s Twitter feed will serve as his version of FDR’s fireside chats. ‘The only thing we have to fear is fear itself—and Mexicans’. Trump is even encouraged by the head of the GOP to bypass traditional media leading him to spread lies and conspiracy theories unfiltered through his Twitter account,” Meyers said.
@justkarl The idea that late-night comedy should reach for anything other than the lowest common denominator is, well, cute.— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) December 21, 2016
The novelty of liberals indulging in unguarded moments of anxiety over Trump’s tweets is becoming mind-numbingly tedious.
