If you can measure Donald Trump’s anxiety level over his impeachment by the number of social media posts that he obsessively makes within a defined period of time, this afternoon the president likely had to change his underwear multiple times.
In what surely must be a new record even for the Twitter-happy Trump, he tweeted or retweeted over 70 posts just in the last four hours alone.
The compulsive spree of self-validation via the posting of his own media digest of every bit of positive press he could find — originating from the usual assortment of extremist right-wing news sources, Republican toadies, and his own propaganda team — was overwhelming to consume even for the president’s most ardent followers.
Rather than subject readers to a multitude of repetitive and mostly false and misleading presidential posts, we can summarize the gist of Trump’s persistent messages in a few short bullet points.
- Democrats are bad.
- Trump says he’s done nothing wrong.
- Democrats are bad, especially House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
- You still have a job and the economy is good and it’s all Trump’s doing, so he wants you to vote for him.
- Democrats are bad, especially Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
- The Ukraine scandal is a “Hoax.”
- Democrats are bad, especially House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler.
- The Ukraine scandal is a “Witch Hunt.”
- Democrats are bad, and the public will turn against them for impeaching him.
- The wall is being built. Really. He means it.
- Democrats are bad, especially this impeachment stuff.
- The U.S. under Trump is better than Canada under Trudeau.
- Democrats are bad, especially Joe Biden.
- The whistleblower doesn’t deserve protection.
- Democrats are bad, especially Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler, and Biden.
- CNN sucks and its ratings are bad.
- Democrats are bad, and this impeachment stuff sucks.
- This impeachment stuff really sucks.
