It was early in the morning, and President Donald Trump was restless. Instead of going back to bed or reading a pocketbook Constitution, Trump did what he always does: tweet. Not unlike most things President Trump tweets, it was an attack on the media. However, this attack was particularly personal, targeting Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of the TV show Morning Joe. Trump sent out the first tweet at precisely 5:52 AM, typing these characters apparently without a second thought:
“I heard poorly rated Morning Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came… to Mar-a-Largo 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”
I think those repulsive words speak for them self, and there is no logical way to defend them, especially coming from The President of The United States. I mean, seriously? What kind of deranged lunatic talks like that, let alone broadcasts it on Twitter for the whole world to see? President Trump obviously needs an intervention when it comes to his Twitter usage, but it remains to be seen if his staff can hold him back. By using his tremendous platform to spread hate and vitriol, Mr. Trump only divides the country further, playing into the already toxic political discourse in America.
Mr. Trump, grow up. Put down the phone, lead by example. Be a leader we can all be proud of, and please, please, apologize to Ms. Brezinski. America deserves and desperately needs a better leader than Donald Trump. He’s no longer merely an embarrassment, and he’s a disgrace to the office he holds.
President Trump took the low road to the highest office in the land during his campaign and continued to stay on it.
Will he ever get off this road?
Judging by his past actions, probably not, but only time will tell.
One thing is for sure. However, President Trump needs to grow up.
