Donald Trump loves Twitter. He says he uses it because it allows him to get his message directly to the American people:
“I can do messages around the media and get my word out, the way I mean my word. I don’t have to have the media distort my message, because they go out of their way to distort my message.”
But it would appear that the president needs to update his senior staff on that fact, because Monday morning on the Today show, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway got more than a bit rankled when the two co-hosts dared to ask about a tweet Trump had sent out regarding the travel ban executive order. Conway criticized the media for:
“This obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter and very little of what he does as president.”
You mean like how he plays more golf than a member of the PGA tour and lies about everything?
Host Craig Melvin replied to Conway by reminding her:
“That’s his preferred method of communication with the American people.”
The churlish Conway, who must have forgotten to have her morning coffee, snapped:
“That’s not true!”
“Well he hasn’t given an interview in three weeks. So lately that is his preferred method.”
Later in the interview, when Savannah Guthrie asked if Conway thought the president should apologize to London mayor Sadiq Khan for misquoting him, Conway again copped an attitude:
“You want to make this about something other than what’s its about. I’m not going to allow, the day and a half after terrorist did it again, whether ISIS inspired or ISIS directed. They’re savage murders. It’s an evil slaughter as the president said last night. I’m going to not let him be seen as the perpetrator here.”
No one said he was the perpetrator of the attack, Kellyanne. But going after the mayor of London just a day after his city was subjected to a terrorist attack is not exactly very presidential, let alone considerate. Then again, this is a man who loves to bully others and try to get his way on everything. He’s a spoiled brat with nuclear weapons, and that scares the shit out of most of the world.
