Presidential Twitter Insanity, December 26, 2017 – December 31, 2017

The presidential Twitter feed continues to be NOT NORMAL. To be specific, this week it was NOT NORMAL for the president to (a) wish “enemies, haters, and even the very dishonest Fake News Media” a happy new year; (b) question why “smart voters” would elect Democrats to Congress; (c) continue to call his presidential opponent and the former Secretary of State “Crooked Hillary”; (d) accuse the media of using “Phony and non-existent sources”; (e) complain that the United States Post Office does not charge Amazon enough; (f) falsely claim that his approval rating is the same as former president Obama’s at the same point in their presidencies; (g) argue that the current cold snap disproves global warming; and (h) attack a magazine for posting a list of satirical resolutions for his presidential opponent, while simultaneously insulting her. In addition, given the tense situation in Iran, one wishes the president would not insist upon conducting foreign policy via social media.
