I Still think Trump should stop Tweeting
Of course, all the Trumpeteers who hate me now because I disagree with Trump tweeting, have ammunition to fire since Chris Matthews, a Democratic narrative guy if ever I met one – speculated on the air about the advantage of having Trump murder his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Send them a funny tweet showing Trump throwing the CNN logo a body tackle and they freeeaaak out, but talk openly about the assassination of his son-in-law and advisor, and MSNBC is O.K. with that.
Nevertheless I stand by my position.
Trump should not fire back no matter how reprehensible what Chris Matthews and MSNBC did was. In fact it’s proof I’m right.
Trump needs to stay above all this. It enrages him, as it does every other one of us — when people unfairly attack and slander our family members including and most especially young children — but president’s cannot react to that.
It draws more of it.
Presidents cannot discuss their rage over things like this; it’s inappropriate, president’s, send out the secret service. That’s WHAT PRESIDENTS DO.
THEY USE THE PEOPLE AROUND THEM to solve problems.
No one man, no matter how smart, can do it all himself.
I hope Trump is smart enough to realize that.
Here is a terrific story from the Jerusalem Post about the revolting Chris Matthews and his big mouth.
Jerusalem Post — Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” made wry comments on Thursday regarding a theoretical assassination of US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner.
Matthews opened with remarks about recent reports that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was displeased with his place in the White House food chain. “Rex is just exhausted,” Matthews said. “He can’t get any of his appointments approved and is running around the world cleaning up after a president whose primary foreign policy adviser is a 36-year-old amateur.” He was referring, of course, to Kushner.
Matthews went on to state that in his opinion, nepotism is “a bad thing in government.” For example, he said, “We find Kushner in the Middle East, brokering the Middle East peace process, whatever it is, among the Arabs and Israelis and Likud and everybody else and meanwhile, Tillerson is sitting around doing what? He can’t even appoint his own deputies. The power seems to have gone to the son-in-law.”
“Is it the family running the government?” Matthews wondered out loud. “Is it Ivanka and Jared and the President sitting around in the White House upstairs ruling the world?”
MSNBC senior political analyst Ashley Parker concurred, somewhat, suggesting that “Jared basically emerged as a shadow Secretary of State.”
But most aggressively, Matthews compared Trump to Mussolini, except, he said, “one good thing Mussolini did was execute his son-in-law… that was an extreme measure, but this is a strange situation.”
