Trump's tweets, by the numbers.

An examination of all 11,000+ Trump tweets while he's been in office has found: -5889 are attacks -1,710 promoted conspiracies -36 called the news media the "enemy of the people" -16 referred to himself as everyone’s "favorite" president" Great reporting on how a social media platform has shaped the Trump presidency. Worthy of your time. From The New York Times.

most disturbing thing about that article is Trump needs reading glasses to read, but refuses to wear them in front of other people because he's vain. Wonder how much of his inability to read briefings is because he can't see the words?

As long as they gently and beautifully remove the underbrush from that 150,000 square miles of land then I fully support the shitstain.

I'd suggest bamboo rakes.

If Shifty Adam Schiff, who is a corrupt politician who fraudulently made up what I said on the “call,” is allowed to release transcripts of the Never Trumpers & others that are & were interviewed, he will change the words that were said to suit the Dems purposes. Republicans...

tweeted just now

Retweets Boltons 11 sept message

of course 9/11 is also today..or yesterday depending on where you live

 Donald J. Trump Retweeted

As we reflect this week on the horrific 9/11 attack, it’s important to remember how far we’ve come in combatting radical Islamist terrorist groups but also how much work is left. We stand strong against regimes that sponsor terror & encourage violence against the US & our allies.

It's not that 

Why would he re tweet Bolton at all..Is he using 11 sept as some sort of cryptic message/threat to Bolton ...or...does he really think yesterday was the anniversary 9/11..no one is that dumb...it's weird.

Calm down Bob.  Most of the world displays date as day/month/year or ascending lengths of time.  However we do month/day/year for no apparent reason.  Trump was simply pointing that fact out.  The idiot gives us enough shit to make fun of, let's not make stuff up where it doesn't exist.  

I was in Mannheim years ago staying the night on my way from Paris to Frankfort for my flight home.  My car was struck in the parking lot and I filed a report at the local police station.  I'm sweating as I am looking at my watch as this young German police officer typed a form with one finger.  After about 15 minutes, he comes to the date of my birth, 10/13/xxxx.  He types it in as such and looks at it confused knowing there is not a 13th month, realizes what he's done, grabs the form, rips it out of the typewriter and rips it in two.  I let out a small scream.  Made the flight by a few 10s of minutes.

Still doesn't explain why he'd retweet Bolton, about 11/9 on 9/11.

1) Bolton is now a looser

2) 11 September was two months ago

3) If he's trying to remind everyone that "he" killed Baghdadi, well..OH thats right..Mooslims..

4) It's still a weird juxtapose 

5)he really is disconnected enough to think the towers came down on 9/11, prolly saw the date on an email from somewhere "Not America" and it triggered the tweet.

All good, has the same numbers in it (or something).

 

 

 

 

 

 

And sometimes when people are under stress numbers can get mixed up, back in the 80s my front yard was burning down & I repeatedly dialed 991.

Actually 999 is UK emergency services number. Interesting and practical reason. it was the fastest number to call on a dial phone. the 9 being the shortest "travel" on the dial.

????

It's the longest travel on a dial other than 0.

It was chosen because it was the easiest to find and dial in the dark or blinded by smoke etc. The caller didn't have to find another dial hole like with 911.

Oooops I WAS WRONG!! :D

 

The General Post Office, which ran the telephone network, proposed a three digit number that could trigger a special signal and flashing light at the exchange. The operators could then divert their attention to these priority calls.

In order to find the new emergency number in the dark or thick smoke it was suggested an end number was used so it could be found easily by touch.

111 was rejected because it could be triggered by faulty equipment or lines rubbing together. 222 would have connected to the Abbey local telephone exchange as numbers in the early telephone network represented the first three letters (ABBey = 222, 1 was not used due to the accidental triggering). 000 could not be used as the first 0 would have dialled the operator.

999 was deemed the sensible choice.

Yeah, that was pretty dumb.

But the Republicans seem to have a couple of main points to pound the table about

1- the hearings should NOT be private public

2- we must get testimony from Hunter Biden

3- READ THE TRANSCRIPT (as redacted by the White House)

4- nobody actually heard the phone call

5- the whistleblower who actually heard the phone call is a rabid lefty Democrat and must be "confronted" by Trump (apparently threatening to kill him isn't confrontational enough)

6- the process is unConstitutional and flawed and is just another attempt to undo the 2016 election

7- we should wait until the next election (giving Trumpublicans another year to work on supressing the vote and getting further Russian interference)

Other than the above, it's just more the same cycle of "I didn't do it, well yes I did but it's not illegal, alright it's illegal but you can't indict a sitting President so I'm really innocent" except that this is a big enough, stinky enough, deal that it's going to override pretty much any distraction they can dream up.

You really have to wonder if all Trumpistas are simply stupid rather than corrupt. T

“The President has until September 30th to give this aid to Ukraine. He gets it out on September 11th., 3 weeks before the deadline. So, we give our ally aid, and Joe Biden is not investigated. Remember that, they get the aid and we get nothing in return. The Democrats........want that to be an impeachable offense? Good luck with that!” @JesseBWatters

So..They're bitching because Ukraine got aid and they got no dirt on Biden in return..and this is a Defence? 

And Trump reTweets it ..seriously it's almost unfair!!

I'm curious about this deadline. Who/what imposed a time limit "until Sep 30"? It's not his money to withhold anyway, the Constitution very specifically gives this power to Congress, from whom Trump did his damndest to keep it secret

Trump didn't release the aid until AFTER the scandal broke, and well after Ukraine was taking losses due to loss of military support.
