“The post-election, pre-presidential Donald Trump has used social media with the same abandon as his campaign self — yes, to get his message out, unfiltered by the media he loathes, but also as a bludgeon against critics, a tool for disseminating misinformation and, as he nears the inaugural, and an outlet for breeding confusion in business and international relations, purposefully or not.”
See Trump’s still going wrong on TwitterDuring the election campaign, Trump used Twitter as a means to sidestep legitimate news media which tended to criticize or add commentary. He wanted to control everything in his stream of propaganda.
However, while skilled at producing his content in volume, he had a very high error rate and/or showed himself to be a compulsive liar. He’s still doing that. He must know that one can fool some of the people all of the time but not all the people. Mustn’t he?
I think he does not. The longer he Tweets, the greater the number of rational human beings will come to loathe Trump and all for which he stands. In fact, I think it’s clear that Trump stands for nothing at all, no morality, no humanity, no sharing nor caring, nothing. Clearly, the first thing that pops into his mind when criticized by anyone is to attack the messenger with lies quite often. That might stir a mob but it’s a losing proposition in the long run. All right-thinking people will just get more organized to oppose him and eventually topple him from power sooner or later.
That could even come from within his own party at the rate things are going, just from nominees to the cabinet. I doubt you could find many in the Senate who do not object strenuously to some of his more outrageous picks. Like his Tweets, his picks are blatantly wrong for the country.
