What’s Missing From Trump’s Tweets This Morning? An Apology. (But That’s No Surprise.)
Mika Brzezinski, Target Of Trump’s Vile Tweets, Answers Back, And Trump Was Watching! His Response: Say Nothing About Her/Attack Her Co-Host:
This morning, Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough co-authored an opinion piece in the Washington Post entitled “Donald Trump is not well.” They also discussed the issue on their regular MSNBC morning show.
Here are Trump’s Tweets that started off the firestorm:
Let’s Call It What It Is…
No, Paul Ryan, the issue is not that it’s “obviously” an inappropriate comment. And no, Lindsey Graham, it does not represent “what is wrong with American politics”. And no, Bill O’Reilly, it is not about being “discouraging for Americans” (and what are you doing weighing in on this anyway?) And no, Representative Lynn Jenkins, it is not about a need for “working to empower women.” And no, Senator Orrin Hatch, it is not about being “responsible for our speech.” And no, Senator Susan Collins, it is not about “respect and civility.” And no, far-right wing commentator Laura Ingraham, it is not about “MESSAGE DISCIPLINE.” And no, White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders, is it not about “fighting fire with fire.”
It is just plain CRAZY.
(To his credit, long time Trump critic, Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse came the closest, saying “This isn’t normal.”)
And no, The Washington Post, the central issue is not the stigma of cosmetic surgery. (Had the Tweet just referred to a “face-lift”, it would not have caused anything close to the uproar it did.) It’s about Trump’s weird obsession with bleeding women, as The Atlantic perceptively asserts.
Unfortunately, Trump’s vile Tweets won’t make it one bit less likely Republicans will support Trump’s radical legislative agenda, as long as it continues matching with their own.
