I know, I'm making too many threads. I've been putting this off for a while.

Anyway, today's relevant entry:
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/...29591267328000
3 Chief of Staffs in less than 3 years of being President: Part of the reason why @BarackObama can't manage to pass his agenda.

Operating under the assumption Trump doesn't really have what one would consider consistent and reasoned viewpoints[1][2], was there actually a reason Obama got Trump all bunched? Like was there a slight or something?


[1] Which kinda kills the point of the thread, but that's not my intent.
[2] Not counting Russia. Boy does he suddenly and uncharacteristically become laser-focused when Russia comes up.

This, however is uncanny.

Well... there is the whole part about how Trump has reacted to Russia being against him.

The Democrats are against him too, right?

Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.

Why did @BarackObama and his family travel separately to Martha's Vineyard? They love to extravagantly spend on the taxpayers' dime.

Not quite a self-own, but close enough.

That and retweeting the guy who called him a fascist.

Blaming it on an intern was a nice touch.

Judges? No, sorry that's not a self-own. That's merely a consistent preoccupation.

This is a self-own:

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve felt the wheels are coming off, but I think the wheels are coming off.

This article has his 2014 tweet at the end:

https://thehill.com/homenews/adminis...f-achievements

We need a President who isn't a laughing stock to the entire World. We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning. Respect! - Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)

Yeah.

Two high-profile incidents of Patton striking subordinates during the Sicily campaign attracted national controversy following the end of the campaign. On August 3, 1943, Patton slapped and verbally abused Private Charles H. Kuhl at an evacuation hospital in Nicosia after he had been found to suffer from "battle fatigue".[120] On August 10, Patton slapped Private Paul G. Bennett under similar circumstances.[120] Ordering both soldiers back to the front lines,[121] Patton railed against cowardice and issued orders to his commanders to discipline any soldier making similar complaints.[122]
...
In this speech he aroused some controversy among the Gold Star Mothers when he stated that a man who dies in battle is "frequently a fool",[181] adding that the wounded are heroes.
...
Unhappy with his position and depressed by his belief that he would never fight in another war, Patton's behavior and statements became increasingly erratic. Various explanations beyond his disappointments have been proposed for Patton's behavior at this point. Carlo D'Este wrote that "it seems virtually inevitable ... that Patton experienced some type of brain damage from too many head injuries" from a lifetime of numerous auto- and horse-related accidents, especially one suffered while playing polo in 1936.

Okay, so this isn't a Trump tweet, but it's the next best thing...A Rudy Giuliani tweet about Trump. Definitely click that G-20 link. And, then, enjoy Twitter doing its thing.
When I want your opinion,-
I'll read it in your entrails
