President Donald Trump is definitely a new breed. Of what? Our sore excuse for a president, that’s what. In all my life of 52 years, never have I experienced a president who “tweets” instead of speaking directly to the American public. Rather trashy, don’t you think?

How many Americans actually follow Trump on Twitter? A wee bit of research tells me a mere 20 million to 30 million, and falling. Lib intel says that they are bought and paid for. No proof in that, but thank God it’s not the Dow Jones. Is it?

I don’t follow Trump on Twitter. Do you? I wonder about those who “follow” Trump on Twitter. Do they diligently log on every day to see what he has said? Or are they like me, and log onto Twitter once every month or so to see if I’ve gotten any response back from my “direct contact” messages?

A president who cannot speak directly to all 324 million or so Americans is a president who has no words of his own worth hearing. At least not the words that America wants to hear. As far as I know, Twitter is nothing but a bathroom wall. And Trump is using up all of the toilet paper.

Trump and Twitter. Sounds like the name of a new cartoon. Oh wait, it is.
