“I made him a hashtag he couldn’t refuse.”
If you ever wondered what it would have been like if Vito Corleone had a Twitter account, I think we now know.
Not since Alec Baldwin lost all sense of reason has a celebrity made the most of 140 characters when it comes to public meltdowns.
Donald Trump is the Tweetfather. Rather than sending out surrogates to get their hands dirty on his behalf, Don Trumpione takes to the Twitter to fling his own feces like a gorilla in the zoo.
And heaven help us if he discovers emoticons!
He could teach Cher a thing or two.
I think the two things that would elevate the discourse of the 2016 Presidential campaign would be taking the booze away from Hillary and canceling Donald’s Twitter account.
Last summer, I posited that the only thing that could damage Donald Trump would be, well, Donald Trump.
I just don’t think it’s necessary to try and take Trump out.
He’ll do that for us.
You want to know how Trump will disqualify himself from the race?
By being Trump.
When you are a cocky blowhard, you always tend to shoot yourself in the head because you can’t shut up. When you believe that every word out of your mouth is the last word on any subject, you’ll just keep talking.
Eventually, he’ll wear out his welcome.
Well, it’s taken seven months, but I think it’s starting to happen. The juvenile antics on Twitter, the endless half-baked tirades. Trump may not be losing any of his current support, but he’s making himself downright repugnant to the two-thirds of Republican voters who do not support him.
And when this field begins to shrink, and those 65 to 67% of Republican primary voters have to solidify behind one of the remaining candidates, all this ludicrous and childish buffoonery will probably result in those voters looking to support anybody but Trump.
Today, Hank Berrien over at the Daily Wire reminded everyone that back in August, in an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, the Tweetfather said, “I am the most fabulous whiner. I do whine because I want to win … I am a whiner. I keep whining and whining until I win.”
Well, the whining has been replaced with strident, unhinged tweeting and nasty, boorish, Democrat-like attacks.
While everyone loves a winner, most people are turned off by an unhinged whiner.
And that’s pretty much what the Tweetfather has become.
