Trump posts a misspelled rant against reporters with “Noble” prizes in Sunday tweet attack

Social media mavens were beginning to get worried.

Here it was almost noon on a Sunday and Donald Trump had yet to erupt on Twitter with one of his typical social media posts expressing his latest grudges, attacking his perceived enemies, or even posting a self-congratulatory tweet about what a great job he thinks he’s doing.

Had something dire happened to distract him? Granted, it is his wife Melania’s birthday today, as his first early morning post of the day had warned us.

Then came a post that gave an excuse for the period of presidential silence, a religious exemption while the president “attended” an online mass from New York City’s St. Patrick’s cathedral.

Add your name to reject Trump & Republicans’ vile idea of sacrificing seniors’ lives to save the stock market!

It didn’t take long after that unusually late start for Trump to compose a tweet that cleverly included both self-praise and media-bashing as if to make up for lost time.

While it’s uncertain which part of the Constitution enumerates watching cable news channels and frequent golfing excursions as part of the president’s official duties, perhaps because we are not sufficiently educated in American history or simply don’t know Donald Trump well enough outside of what we ourselves watch on TV, the president’s claims ring rather hollow.

Delusional visions of non-existent accomplishment aside, it soon became clear that this particular presidential tirade of defensiveness stemmed from a New York Times examination of Trump’s work schedule and eating habits with which he took issue.

Trump’s ability to count may be called into question by anyone who considers less than two months “many,” since the president held a campaign rally on March 2nd in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Apparently, reporters are not supposed to get information about the president’s work habits from anyone who works around Donald Trump and who can observe those details first-hand before passing those observations to the journalists in question.

Trump’s fractured syntax provides for interesting pull quotes, however.

Is the president describing some Ebenezer Scrooge-like visions when he says “I will often be in the Oval Office late into the night & read & see that I am angrily eating a hamburger & Diet Coke in my bedroom”? If so, treatment and the invocation of the 25th Amendment should be strongly urged.

Also, how unusual can it be that people with Donald Trump are always stunned, given the idiocy that flows so freely through his lips, unmediated by reason or facts. Disinfectant, anyone?

As for “Anything to demean!”, the president seems to hate it when other people steal his tactical playbook as he demonstrated with his imitations of disabled reporters, his nicknames for political rivals of both parties, and his comments about anyone he perceives as a threat to his power.

Trump demonstrated one of the many reasons that, unlike his predecessor Barack Obama, he should not expect to become the recipient of a Nobel prize for any reason whatsoever: his inability to properly spell the name of the prize.

That the president would send this vindictive tweet out just days after a Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee confirmed that Russia did indeed interfere in the 2016 U.S. elections to help elect Donald Trump seems particularly brain dead.

While it would be quite interesting to see the list of “REAL REPORTERS & JOURNALISTS” whom the president believes deserves a “Noble” prize — Sean Hannity? Tucker Carlson? Laura Ingraham? Jeanine Pirro? — it’s the unfortunate truth that the Nobel Committee doesn’t issue journalism awards, limiting its prizes to Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Literature, Peace, and Economic Sciences.

Perhaps he was thinking of the Pulitzer Prizes, awarded for excellence in newspaper journalism, literary achievements, musical composition.

Either way, the answer to the president’s questions are in order of appearance are:

Never, since no reporters — or anyone else, actually — have received “Noble” prizes.

Never, since there is no “Noble Committee,” and the Nobel Committee has never honored journalists. Plus, the supposed fraud of the journalists’ reports on “Russia, Russia, Russia” was confirmed as actually being true by a Senate Committee controlled by Trump’s own party, in addition to all U.S. intelligence agencies.

It’s unlikely that any “great lawyers” would take on a case arguing against a freedom of the press guaranteed by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

And in answer to Trump’s final question, again, never, since there is no “Noble Committee” and no reason to act.

The ignorant and crazy old man in the White House deserves answers to his burning questions, but if writing tweets like these is what Trump considers part of his working “from early in the morning until late at night,” can you blame the press for questioning his work ethic? Or his intelligence?

Most White House correspondents should be awarded Pulitzers simply for having the restraint to not throw their notebooks at Trump out of frustration whenever he insults them and calls them “Fake News” at press briefings.

Journalism is a ‘Noble” profession after all.
