To Tweet or Not To Tweet

President Trump unleashed a vicious, misogynist twitter attack on cable news host Mika Brzezinski.

Even while desperately wishing Mr. Trump would lose his phone, one might compare President Trump's tweeting with General U.S. Grant's drinking. Under pressure to fire Grant over his drinking, Lincoln responded, "I can't fire this man; he FIGHTS!"
 J. Marsolo: President Trump: Keep using Twitter, you are winning   "The daily news as reported by the mainstream media, as part of the Opposition Party consisting of the Democratic Party, MSM, Never-Trumps, and the Obama bureaucrats imbedded in the federal government, is an obsession with President Trump's use of Twitter and other social media.  The MSM for the most part ignore the real issues, such as nuclear proliferation by North Korea and Iran, which Obama either ignored or contributed to by giving Iran 150 billion dollars.  Instead, the MSM report on the hurt feelings of Wolf Blitzer and Joe and his sidekick Mika.

"Simply put, the MSM are not used to having a Republican president telling the leftist MSM to shove it.  Aside from Newt Gingrich calling out the debate questioners during the 2012 campaign and George H.W. Bush calling out Dan Rather in 1988, the Republicans usually act like a punching bag.  The best example is George W. Bush, who failed to respond to the brutal attacks by the likes of Harry Reid and the MSM.  Currently, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan make George W. Bush look like President Trump." . . .

Jonah Goldberg at NRO: Put Down the Phone, Mr. President
"Look, I think Trump’s defenders make some perfectly valid points. Laura Ingraham, for example, rightly notes that all of the people freaking out about Trump’s misogyny were all too happy to drag Bill Clinton’s victims through the mud."
"Now, to be fair, I think the more accurate analysis would be to say that the tweeting hurts more than it helps. Not every one of Trump’s tweets is the political equivalent of taking a sock full of quarters and smashing himself in the crotch, only some are. If he just tweeted within relatively sane and presidential parameters, it would be an asset for him. Feel free to discount my advice, and just listen to Victor Davis Hanson, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, or virtually every Republican member of Congress who understand that Trump’s tweets distract from his agenda, cause chaos among his staff, make it harder for Republicans to embrace him, and harden attitudes among Democrats and winnable voters." . . .
