TRUMP AT WAR WITH TV, MOVIES
~ T. Rump – Trump By Trump – 3/2017
During the campaign, President Trump said his military advice came from “the shows.”
Now He controls a nuclear arsenal that could destroy the world and has about 24 million Twitter followers. I expect that they are the 24 million who will lose their health care next year or in a few years thereafter since they voted for Trump.
Trump sees on Fox News that 122 Gitmo prisoners released are back on the battlefield and Trump Tweets that Obama released them – bad policy. The truth is 113 of the 122 were released during the George W. Bush administration.
Fox News’ on Chicago crime and Trump Tweets “If Chicago doesn’t fix the horrible ‘carnage’ going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!”
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson airs a report alleging that Sweden has been trying to “cover up” an outburst of violence caused by Muslim immigrants. Trump tells a crowd in Florida: “You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden. Sweden? Who would believe this?”
Swedes don’t watch Fox News so they do not know what Trump is talking about. Nor does Trump. The violence did not happen, Trump!
Educated Americans do not watch Fox News. Nor should Trump and his followers. An idiot box can make you look like an idiot. A Twitter account can make you look like an idiot.
