Though he campaigned two long years for President of the United States, it has seemed that the job Donald Trump was really interested in was White House social media director. If you think Trump has put on a Twitter show so far, just wait until Thursday.
Word came out today that Trump intends to tweet full-time during the entirety of his fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
I'm told by two WH sources that Pres. Trump does not plan to put down Twitter on Thursday. May live tweet if he feels the need to respond.

This is the nightmare scenario for a White House staff that has been contradicted by the President’s tweets at virtually every turn, jeopardizing a key Middle East alliance this morning and throwing his staff under the bus yesterday by refusing to stop calling his travel ban a travel ban.
That Trump is making a mockery of the very office he holds is no accident. Trump cannot stop Comey from testifying, so instead he will turn it into a circus.
Let’s all remember, that Comey’s testimony is the main event on Thursday, and Trump — no matter how big of a clown he makes of himself — Trump will be nothing more than a sideshow.
