I disagree 100% here

What did being “professional” and “nice” get us?

That’s right, it got us George W Bush, John McCain and Mitt Romney all getting walked over by the Dems/MSM as they tried to be “nice”. Screw that. Nice is over. I hope Trump DOUBLES his tweeting, because he’s getting the message out and the Dems/MSM know this and are freaking out.

No more Mr. Nice Guy!
I have this image of Harry S. Truman tweeting a lot, were that capability in existence back then . . . .

HMMMMMMMMMMMM

Is THIS why John Kelley has suddenly been screeching after we hear nothing from him since he quit the WH?

Maybe he was the leak ringleader here? Trying to get out in front of this?

+1. He needs to keep - or gain - undecided voters. I'm voting for Trump no matter what, as are 99% of SF members. But there are voters who are turned off by his behavior even though they like his results. Act presidental, send out staff to make the attacks, and stop shooting yourself in the foot on Twitter!

One might make the argument that all of this foot shooting on Twitter is what has propelled him to where he is.

After Attending a Trump Rally, I Now Know Democrats Have No Shot in 2020

I’ve been a Democrat for 20 years, but my experience made me realize just how out of touch my party is with the country at large

Thank you for that, honestly written and fairly accurate. One of the commenters said "Trump is not perfect, but he is perfect for this time".

I think his imperfections are part of what makes him work so effectively as CINC - we can relate to him and he is not afraid to hurt some feelings or take some heat to get the job done that he promised. Overriding all of this is an unabashed love of America and a fierce will to protect America and ALL of its people - regardless of political party, race, religion, or category they put themselves in.

It’s not the President’s twittering per se that dismays (some of) his supporters and delights his opponents, but the content of some of them. Even on an Internet forum like this one most of us recognize that what we choose to comment on and how we do it makes the difference in how those comments—and we as individuals—are perceived. It’s far easier to be aware of and focus on what someone says than what he accomplishes, and when even someone like AG Barr says, “Please: Just shut up about things that are my job!” that should be a clue.

I too am not a fan of twitter in general and the president tweeting in particular. That said two points. One, I think he is more effective this way than not. Two, common sense needs to rear it’s ugly head. The president tweeting his opinion is not “undue influence“. Allowing this to gain traction is ridiculous. If he calls the AG ind interferes call me back. Undue influence is almost always done behind the scenes. Tweeting his disagreement while you might find it unseemly is 100% legal and defendable. Only in crazy town does a tweet constitute illegal influence. This is a stupid a Democratic attempt to rewrite law. Did Obama stating Trayvon Martin could have been his son unduly influence the investigation? Where was the outrage?

To all of you hating on Trump's tweeting, are you NOT UNDERSTANDING that it's the ONLY way he's able to bypass this criminally corrupt, propaganda-arm-of-the-DNC mainstream media? He's speaking direct to you and me with ZERO spin, being taking out of context, having words added he never said, omissions made to craft a narrative, etc?

Barr needs to STFU and do his job and start cracking some goddamn heads already but it's looking more and more like that's not going to happen now. Mad

I'm split on this. There are times when I wish he would just STFU but on the other hand I think most tweets are way more thought out than we give them credit for. He's yanking someone's chain on purpose and is aware of the consequences.


When you're dead, you don't know you're dead. The pain is only felt by others. The same thing happens when you're stupid.

So he is Grand Marshall at the Daytona 500. I think it’s great. I wonder if the SS will let him ride in the pace car? That would be most awesome.

I kinda doubt it. I would think that motor homes and parking in the infield would be a nightmare for the SS to secure.

They were talking on the news about how cool it was gonna be to have Air-force one at the Daytona Beach airport.

100% agree with PASig on this.

One of my closest friends can’t stand Trump, and that’s fine. There’s just something about him that needles him. Part of it is the tweets. He’s one of those swing voters, but I’m working on him. Recently, I asked him regarding the tweets: “would you prefer me to bullshit you and just tell you what you want to hear, or only what other people approved for me to tell you, or would you like to hear what I really think?”

“You know I’m not a fan of bullshit and half-truths, be straight with me.”

“That’s what our president is doing via Twitter, speaking straight to the public.”

[Long pause]

“Well, when you put it like that, I don’t know what to say.”

We have these ideas about how things should happen, and then someone comes along with an unorthodox approach that works beyond all belief andsome people clutch their pearls and gasp “well, I never!”

This is why I think Twitter is going to try and block or ban him prior to say September 2020.

If that happens, all hell is going to break loose.

I believe, in whatever the top NASCAR series is called now, the number has been reissued to a new driver.

I don't recall Dale Sr racing the trucks.

Richard Childress owned the number 3 when Dale drove it for him in the cup series and still owns the number.
His grandson has been driving it.
Numbers are bought and sold in each division.

Our President has the capacity to be rude, crude, and socially unacceptable. Based on the behavior he often displays, he is not someone I would want dating my daughter (even if it were age appropriate). He sure seems to care about our country and be getting positive results for all Americans though...

It often appears that he is doing the laser pointer thing with twitter, getting the libtards panties thoroughly bunched and having them spinning out of control about whatever tweet so that he can actually quietly get good things done in the background while they lose their minds over a tweet.

I would prefer more decorum, but only if it could be equally effective. I don't think it could. There are a whole lot of folks out there of all stripes who are fed up with the PC culture, with the slimy, self-enriching politicians of the swamp, with the outrage du jour. While it might not be the most professional way to do things, I suspect an awful lot of folks enjoy seeing him give those commie f***s both barrels right in the face.

Nothing ever seems to turn out perfectly, but in my perfect world, he will crush the everloving snot out of whatever communist piece of garbage the Dims put up as the sacrificial lamb, the next four years will go well, and we will get someone else to follow on who also takes a hard line and shoves their garbage right back down the throats of any commies that are left in 2024, but does it in a slightly more "professional way". If I have to pick the one thing I'd most like to give up in that wish, it would be the "professional way" part. YMMV
