Tweets and Free Press Bashing

306

Seems to me it’s about time for all Trump supporters to reassess their presidential choice.

President Trump’s campaign promises — which anyone with a slight bit of intelligence should have known couldn’t be kept — his abusive deliveries to women, and his constant bashing of our Free American Press are all the contrivances of someone who wants to preside by heavy-handed control. In many other countries, those types of individuals are called dictators.

This is not the way our American government works. And a Free Press has been essential to Democracy since this form of government began.

While the world is crashing, the President tweets and tweets, complains about and tries to disclaim the integrity of persons of the press, and generally reveals that he has no intention of being presidential. His tweets, especially, are diversion tactics to steer the American people to divisiveness and cover up the truth — that he doesn’t have the least idea what it takes to be an American President.

Few members of the Great Generation remain, but if you are a Baby Boomer (1945-1965), you may be able to answer the above queries. And if you are a BB, how many of these questions can your children answer?

Are we relinquishing our own human history to the new world’s accomplished thumb jockeys, born of technology and tempered by tweets?
