Trump Is Aging People With His Tweets
— Ace

Based on the impotent shrieking of the Never Trump bedwetters, he's turning middle-aged men into elderly women.



A major schism in the party is over the question of how much pretense we're fighting to keep lying about. A lot of people seem to think that even though we're plainly in a Cold Civil War, and even thought Joe and Mika spend three hours a day ripping Trump, Trump's supposed to pretend we're all (as John McCain says) Good Friends.

I'm not saying Trump scored some tactical victory here. I'm saying, as I usually do- - who gives a wet shit?

How can the flailing old women of the Nominal Right huff themselves up so much to pretend outrage that a guy being attacked by the media everyday decides to occasionally attack them back?

I understand the leftist media's interest in pretending that they're behaving normally and haven't rewritten the professional code of conduct to allow attacks on Trump which would have been near-hanging-offenses on Obama.

But what is the interest of the sissified Nominal Right over defending the media and pretending along with them?

We are not in a normal situation. Why do the sob sisters and pearl-clutchers of the Pretend Right insist on pretending the media's behavior is normal and that it's only Trump who's guilty of "norm-breaking"?

How much are we supposed to pretend to satisfy these sissies' demands that we pretend we're all Good Friends so that their delicate constitutions aren't too discombobulated?

9 When the media becomes the arm of a  political party, all politeness should leave the room.

I don't care if Trump is loud, obnoxious and tacky.

He is getting things done, and, to be honest, has met and exceeded my expectations.

11 Joe Scarborough murdered Lori Klausutis, his one time congressional aide. The only people that could prompt a re-look at her death would be investigative journalists probing the events of her death including the autopsy report. Joe has become liberal because he knows the liberal media protects their own. If he maintained his conservative (or Republican) credentials he would be an object to be destroyed by the liberal media and Lori Klausutis' death would be the means to destroy him.

I don't think these so called "nasty"Tweets from Trump are random. They're thought out and have a purpose.

The MSM is focusing on his left hand, while his his right hand is signing papers and making Obama's legacy disappear.

44 December 2016, even the DailyKos is wondering why Scarborough was never investigated for Lori Klausutis' death. Just google her name and that post is one of the first to come up. Joe is trying to better fit in with liberals and be one of them so they stop asking questions. Sort of like a Kennedy could get away with rape and murder because, well, he's on the team. Joe Scarborough is taking a page out of that playbook.

49 "Psycho Joe" has to hurt because he's gotten unhinged. You can see it in the reaction of his guests and his salon as he talks over them with repetitious grandiloquent phrasing. "Low IQ" has to hurt because Mika must have been a disappointment to her pompous over-bearing academic dad. Classic cause of bulimia. Comedian John Mullaney has a riff on how 13 year olds can instantly divine your secret greatest weakness and then hit you with it. Trump is tuned to be that 13-year old.

54 Joe was so psycho this morning, he claimed that State Dept. employees are going to the NSA instead of Tillerman, because apparently Tillerman was mean to someone.

60 "low I.Q. Crazy Mika and Psycho Joe" have been asking for it. Non-stop nasty stuff on Trump calling him certifiable crazy who should be removed from office. They and their salon have been making outrageous unsubstantiated allegations. What's of interest with Morning Joe is that they get the Echo Chamber talking points early. You can't fuck up Psycho Joe and Crazy Mika enough for me. Bannon made taking on MSM a big priority. He's had a big week, no?

68 In addition to being on board with Ace's "time for the Left to live by their rules", I remember that these same people Trump is insulting are on a quest to unseat a legally elected president. Because they think that half the country are inbred idiots who don;t deserve to select a president; we should just take Hillary and like it.

They have been on this task since the day after election. Anything and everything is on the table for them - impeachment, forced resignation over scandal, criminal charges, inspiring an assassination, destroying his credibility w/other countries via intelligence leaks, etc.

This is the environment in which Trump is lashing out.
This is survival, not just trying to win today's newscycle.

103 Why do the sob sisters and pearl-clutchers of the Pretend Right insist on pretending the media's behavior is normal and that it's only Trump who's guilty of "norm-breaking"? Who are the sob sisters and Pretend Right? Sorry, I'm out of the loop on this one. I'm not offended. I don't care what Trump does anymore. This is an out and out war on him and his wife, child and family. f' em. When Trump speaks, it is heard loudly. Mika is a pr*ck. So is her wife, Joe.

104 Worth mentioning from the last thread: 307 "Psycho Joe" has to hurt because he's gotten unhinged. You can see it in the reaction of his guests and his salon as he talks over them with repetitious grandiloquent phrasing. "Low IQ" has to hurt because Mika must have been a disappointment to her pompous over-bearing academic dad. Classic cause of bulimia. Comedian John Mullaney has a riff on how 13 year olds can instantly divine your secret greatest weakness and then hit you with it. Trump is tuned to be that 13-year old. Posted by: Ignoramus at June 29, 2017 12:27 PM (+7/1f) This is absolutely true and it's one of the reasons we kept losing. You get the GOPe up there and it's all muh dignity and muh decorum and everything is deathly serious and you're up against a snot nosed punk who hates rules and has a foul mouth. Who's going to win? The punk because he's going to make you look ridiculous. He's going to keep hitting your buttons until you flip out and look like an over the top nut. Now Trump has reversed that. He's somehow managing to make the snot nosed punk look like a hysterical buffoon. He absolutely MUST keep tweeting. I'd also like to see some youtube videos from him about various things.

122 I'll concede that if this sort of thing were the ONLY thing Trump talked or tweeted about, just crass loutish insults all the time, it would be a problem. But he only brings the big guns out once in a while, the rest of the time he's taking care of business and sharing happy stories. When he does "go low", it permanently tarnishes the brand of whoever he's going up against. And he's already teflon in the public eye. Nothing you could hear about Trump will change your mind about him, really. Kinda like the iocaine powder gambit. Sure, both cups are poisoned, but I'll be just fine.

125 This was winnowed from the morning thread: My official take: When Trump actually commits a high crime or misdemeanor, leaves Americans to die in a firefight, bankrolls a terrorist regime, and/or insults my intelligence, I'll get pissed. Obama has done all of these things, and the press yawned. Ace had described politics in the 90s as a fight between the 40 and 60 yard line. Not the truth of it, but the way people felt. That it could only be passionate fight to a wonk policy nerd. The reasons for the Queensbury rules to be cast aside is the purpose of Ace writing IMHO. We will choose rhetoric that damns and humiliates over rhetoric that merely wins. Until the double standard isn't in every interaction. Until the democrat party goes the way of the whigs. They are going to see that we are meaner and more determined. "Ok that's enough, you've made your point now lets just go back to normal." They don't know their caste tribalism is the cause.

Easy to curry favor with the media.  Inexplicable to me, people work harder to curry favor of people that spit on them.  The spitters will never like the curriers of favor, but they may throw them a bone.  Perfect example is John McCain, the left loves him UNTIL he ran for president and then they crushed him.

MeAgain did herself in after he had pushed her out of the arena. If Trump wasn't President Palin would not have a chance of winning a libel suit against the NYT. These bastards are all facing lawsuits because they don't have Obama and Hillary to cover for them. Schumer and Pelosi do not have the ability to provide their side with cover.

ace, we are most definitely in a Civil Cold War. - EXCELLENT term, btw. If you or yours came up with that: bravo.
It succinctly captures our sad but current state of the nation.

But the Cold War between the US and the USSR had a real advantage over our Civil Cold War. When it came to state-power-possession, the USSR had theirs and we had ours.
Thus it was possible for the Cold War to won/ended without a shot being fired.

Do you imagine this is plausible in our current Civil Cold War. That's very hard to imagine indeed. Because what is at stake is just what precisely will be the very nature of state-power-possession... within our OWN state.

By the way, should our sad Civil Cold War heat up, which side do you think the state will come down on? It would have to choose a side after all. And it's got all the best horribly destructive technology which is supposed to be reserved for use exclusively against external enemies.

170 As Hannity pointed out last night, the MFM were in full fainting couch mode when Trump complimented a female Irish reporter on her "nice smile" a couple of days ago.

I remember when Obama condescendingly called a female reporter "sweetheart" in '08 and the outrage lasted about as long as it takes Michelle to scarf down a taco.

Posted by: Jane D'oh at June 29, 2017 07:50 AM (PY9jH)

171 I don't take the position that Trump needs to pretend like he's friends at all, and (frankly) I haven't seen any other conservatives saying that, so to me it sounds like a straw man.

The problem with those tweets is they make Trump sound deranged and unpresidential.

For starters, Twitter as a medium creates an impression of a some loner yelling at the world because he or she has no one to talk to. This is less so when one is responding to something such as another tweet, but--particularly in the case of the POTUS--one invariably wonders, "Doesn't he have other means at his disposal of getting his message out? This seems to beneath him."

I realize that the tweets helped make Trump, and it's also an excellent means of getting around the MSM and controlling his message how he sees fit. But these two examples are like when you, Ace, used to get into it with Oliver Willis. When you were first starting out, it made sense because you were punching up. But once you had a bigger audience, why throw him the traffic?

Similarly, Trump is punching down here and, worse, making himself seem nutty.

172 I think you can be an effective media critic and call them out without resorting to this, it just makes Trump look incredibly petty and juvenile all to go after a meaningless media figure that probably 90% of voters have no idea who Mika even is. Posted by: Maritime at June 29, 2017 12:48 PM (IDhq0) I kinda agree with you, and it's true that most people don't know who Mika is, but MIKA knows who Mika is, and you know she's butthurt over this. Furthermore, other MSM types know who she is, and see what happened to her: she was publicly humiliated. It's got to give them pause for thought. So ... I'm in two minds.

173 "Strip them of their social status" in what way? They're all heros among themselves. They really don't have a social status with viewers. They pretend to have integrity. But they are really just Party sycophants and their bowers are mostly people who like to be fed lies. I don't see where engaging that is useful. Let them feed on each other.

184 I think what I find so funny is the reactions along the lines of, "How DARE he say she had a face lift and was bleeding!"  Like he called her a suppurating cow or something.  What, do women not have face lifts? Do they not bleed?  Are women bloodless, ageless robots or something?  Are they seriously trying to say Mika - an on-air host in the era of 4K HD - would NEVER have had a facelift?  It's rude, perhaps, but it's not exactly scandalous.

214 Yes it is satisfying in a way to have Trump fight back in school yard taunts and people have said they wish Bush had done this . But has it accomplished anything other than this personal satisfaction? Has it made the Press or his other opponents slow their attacks and obstruction? You can make the argument that it has caused them to ramp up their attacks and obstruction. I'm hoping though it will have the effect of wearing them out . Admittedly , though I don't see the objective positive effects now of this schoolyard fight, it's only been six months. The Press and his opponents may punch themselves out eventually.

221 Trump has not tweeted this harshly in a long long time. And it was a double tweet. Methinks it was all about providing coverage while big things go on behind the scenes that the press ignores. Twitter is in an uproar over this. So no heartfelt hashtags about how meany-mean the travel ban is or about how beautiful the immigrant community is and we must cherish 'diversity.'

The best part? Mika deserves it. She's a shrew and a fake. Like most women in Hollywood/media. Any woman over 40 on tv who looks like she's 'aged well' has not really 'aged well,' she's had work done.

And it's one of those 'secrets' that no one in the rich and famous circles will dish about...because almost ALL of them want their surgical procedures secret as well.

Mika is liking falling down drunk at this point, crying and throwing things much like Hillary did on election night. Can you imagine how the elite will be gossiping and whispering for weeks about this? Whenever Mika and Joe walk into a party or restaurant or charity function, they will be whispered about in catty fashion.

Trump knows it. And loves it. LOL!

How about a military one? Joe and Mika's audience is a battlefield. By Tweeting, Trump forces them to respond to his probe as it were. He is taking the fight to them in an area other Republicans thought of as off-limits.

245 I actually think this was one of the funnier exchanges on Twitter today, this Trump/Mika story.  Trump hits at Joe & Mika w/ "face lift at Mar-A-Lago", and Mika comes back w/ a picture of the back of a Cheerios box featuring a toddler reaching for a Cheerio w/ the words "For small hands" emblazoned across the top.



Honestly, I laughed.  It's just so silly and ridiculous.



If the President/media relationship were HEALTHY, they could snipe at each other like this, get petty and mean, and then after a bit of back and forth they could laugh it off and say, "Yeah, okay, I went a bit off the deep end. Let's have an actual conversation now." 



But that's not going to happen, and NOT because of Trump.  Everything I've seen of Trump indicates he's a  decent guy who's good for a laugh and a slap on the back, even with people he doesn't necessarily like that much.  The media, on the other hand, are absolutely vicious and determined to bring him down.  There's no reconciling with these people; they're a lost cause.  Best to let them scream themselves hoarse and tumble into fringe obscurity while a new breed of political discourse takes their place, whatever that may be.  Maybe it's direct contact w/ the people via Twitter and social media, maybe it's phasing out legacy media in favor of newer forums, or maybe it's something else entirely. 



Whatever the case, the current structure can't stand.  It's coming apart at the seams, and that's a GOOD thing in the long run.  The media have become stunted and inert, and so have politicians. They all need to be shaken up.

Posted by: musical jolly chimp at June 29, 2017 12:56 PM (WTSFk) Yes. It is absolutely necessary to respond to the attacks of those who are attacking you. You know what is undignified? Letting people tell lies about you especially after they've been faux friendly to you. The Media, in general, has been Unpeopling people for so long that they just assume it's acceptable. Hell, pay attention to the Left and they believe it is a moral imperative to do so. It is far, far, far past time that someone stood up and said okay, if this is how we're playing, then this is how we're playing and slamming back just as hard. Frankly, I don't comprehend those of you who believe that there's something wrong with defending yourself, even by harsh means.

252 >>>How about a military one? Joe and Mika's audience is a battlefield. By Tweeting, Trump forces them to respond to his probe as it were. He is taking the fight to them in an area other Republicans thought of as off-limits. agreed, and I'd restate my point that these people believe they are entitled to a level of dignified respect. It's well past time to strip them of that delusion.

255 It's just do we really need our President to be doing this? I think you can be an effective media critic and call them out without resorting to this, it just makes Trump look incredibly petty and juvenile all to go after a meaningless media figure that probably 90% of voters have no idea who Mika even is. Posted by: Maritime at June 29, 2017 12:48 PM (IDhq0) We do not even know a tenth of how harsh the attacks are on Trump and his family. We've seen the bloodied head by Griffin. We see and hear the nutjobs on tv. I don't blame him. This is personal. A liberal union goon tried to shoot 29 Republicans at a baseball practice. They need to stop.

This seems a variant on the stray voltage theory.

Basically start a twitter war over something not policy related while you go try to get substantive policy changes done.

Does it work? So far it seems to have.

Could it backfire? Sure. But making liberals more angry at Trump on a personal level doesn't seem to really be something that will harm Republicans. Hell, some of the squishes could go damn Trump on their own Twitter while voting with him since no one is going to ask them about policy right now.

263 Hilarious (darkly). The vastly over-promoted staffer Paul Ryan said Trump's tweets are not helpful to his efforts to improve the tone and civility in DC. Because the problem in DC is not a lawless dysfunctional leviathan choking freedom and prosperity and security out of the country, nor is it crazed Dems fully in the mainstream of that party's extremist delusional wing trying to murder a dozen of Ryan's colleagues. Nope. The problem is coarseness and lack of civility between the miniature sub-mediocrities who have taken the country to its current low state.

Yup. Just look at what the MSM, the Dems have been saying about Scalise - while he was in the ICU fighting for his life.

304 214 Yes it is satisfying in a way to have Trump fight back in school yard taunts and people have said they wish Bush had done this . But has it accomplished anything other than this personal satisfaction? It makes his opposition act badly, which gives him a reason to blow it off. PDT has dry-humped every single third rail in Americal politics. He should be dead in the water. But he's not. Part of the reason for that is that his opponents are lead by morons, whose major talent seems to be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. His opponents are what justifies him. So he magnifies them, instead of ignoring them. If people don't like PDT ruthlessly taking them down, in public, all they have to remember is how you deal with the snobs and cliques in highschool: GROW THE FUCK UP AND STOP CARING. But they can't, 'cause its a pack of narcissists and histrionics. Frankly, it is beautiful to watch.

On July 20, 2001, one of Scarborough's aides died after hitting her head on a desk when she fainted while alone in Scarborough's Fort Walton Beach, Florida, office.[23] According to Scarborough, soon after the death, allegations "spread all over the Internet" that he had been involved.[23][24] There was no evidence of foul play. In 2003, he joked about the incident with Don Imus on Imus's radio program.[25] In 2004, it was the subject of a public spat between Scarborough and filmmaker Michael Moore.[26] Scarborough and Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos had a public falling out over the issue in 2010, which resulted in MSNBC deciding to cease inviting Moulitsas to appear on its shows for "publicly antagonizing one of our hosts."[27]

328 It's easier for Trump to tweet than to show leadership, I suppose. (Look, his trolling the government mouthpieces and Democratic party organs is just fine. But why not spend just a LITTLE energy in getting his legislative agenda accomplished?)

Posted by: CatchThirtyThr33 at June 29, 2017 08:19 AM (kcQyA)

329 But has it accomplished anything other than this personal satisfaction? Has it made the Press or his other opponents slow their attacks and obstruction? You can make the argument that it has caused them to ramp up their attacks and obstruction. I think it has accomplished a lot. It has gone a long way to discrediting the MSM in front of the American people, and has definitely put them on the defensive. Think about it: did you think you'd ever see CNN fire three high-level apparatchiks over a specious attack on a Republican? Their frothing at the mouth hatred of Trump is causing them to drop the mask so all can see exactly who and what they are. And that's worth a lot. Breaking the stranglehold of the MSM on political discourse is essential to taking back our Republic.

Posted by: Mortimer - Finish Her! at June 29, 2017 08:20 AM (Uxokn)

334 I believe Trump's hammering of Mika and Joe is understandable, because Joe and he were friends, and Trump feels betrayed. Between the time he announced and the Republican Convention, Joe was always telling stories about his long-standing friendship with Trump, and the entire Morning Joe crowd was respectful towards Trump during his almost daily on-air phone calls. After Trump was nominated and then times-100 after his election, Joe and the whole M-J crowd called him unhinged, crazy, and unqualified for City Dog Catcher for 3 hours, M-F. So Trump rightly feels personally betrayed.

339 I'm sure someone has already said this, but what the hell. It was made clear, practically from the day Trump first announced his run, that he was NOT going to play by the Establishment's rules. For one thing, Trump is no GWB. He is not going to roll over and "take one for the team" from the MFM. If they goad him, he (Trump) is going to goad them right back, and twice as hard. Trump is not going to take any shit from these people, and I for one am glad to see it, adding that "it's about goddam time" our side started punching these douchebags back.

And he's not going after the media here, he's going after a branch of the Democratic Party. And as far as the general cleaning the latrine because the troops won't leave the trenches, the troops aren't in the trenches, they won't even leave the barracks. They are cowards. And the only comment they should have on the tweet is "no comment". But leave it to McStains and Miss Lindsey to denounce him.

This was and is one of the primary complaints people had w/ Dubya (beyond obvious difference with regards to policy).  He let the media walk all over him, let people lie about him, let toxic abuse be ladled over his Presidency like gravy on a turkey dinner, and never said a peep.   It's was MADDENING. 


I'm not saying Trump's brand of boorish insults is the RIGHT way to push back, but it's sure as hell better than being a doormat.  You can take the high road all you want, but if people are still walking across your face, maybe it's time to  do something more than just lie there and take it. 



I'm reminded again of Mark Steyn's observation from around the election: we had a reasoned, respectful opposition once. It was called the Tea Party. Both sides of the aisle laughed at them and called them extremists.  So now the Tea Party has made way for the Trump party, and the ruling class has no one to blame but themselves.

He wasn't in the legislature but it was seen as his agenda and he worked to sell it. I honestly don't remember the last time Trump gave a major address on replacing Obamacare and I think it's hurt the momentum.

Sponsors go away. Show goes away. Repeat until satisfied. And that's how you win a culture war.

ace,

(very SAD-"dirt ball" confessions and general-apologies from this end are in order, but I hope it will be acceptable that they might occur later. Anyway  

Something possibly important occurred to me. Perhaps a truly great service could be performed for the US in regards to the 2020 elections.

Perhaps your website could sharply elevate the issue of our burgeoning Cold Civil War that has only relatively recently started.
And maybe the seeds of this theme could even be planted during the 2018 elections cycle. This MACRO-perspective is a hidden dynamic which ought to be exposed. Let's get on with it.

I think our national leaders should be forced to A) acknowledge this crucial issue; and B) choose a side.

I suspect that the sooner this happens: the better for the cause of liberty and freedom. Buy there are no guarantees.

- Anyway, just a thought.

He, always the fine Christian gentleman, turned the other cheek constantly and, IMO, his troops paid the price in the form of a extended war with an outcome far less certain. The Left's successes gave AQ and the Taliban hope that they too could win if they just hang on long enough. PDT is not going to allow the Left to do the same thing to his Republican Presidency, the country, and the military without a genuine bloody fight - not some Queensbury Rules bullshit. The Left are not our friends with minor political disagreements. They're the freaking enemy every bit as much as Daesh, IMO.

468 I expect a follow up tweet like: "Ppl mistaken as to Mika tweet-she had not recovered from surgery. Said no! for her own sake. Helped her."

469 RE: "I understand the leftist media's interest in pretending that they're behaving normally and haven't rewritten the professional code of conduct to allow attacks on Trump." "All the nice cutesy little ethics that used to get talked about in journalism school you're just like, that's adorable. That's adorable. This is a business." -- John Bonifield, CNN producer

470 This is gold: We are not in a normal situation. Why do the sob sisters and pearl-clutchers of the Pretend Right insist on pretending the media's behavior is normal and that it's only Trump who's guilty of "norm-breaking"?

471 I'm surprised McCain, who really should have a grudge against these people, is always out there, first in line, to give them some quip about Trump or conservative Republicans.

473 The hilarious thing about this is that the Prez has gotten everyone to think about Mika's FACELIFT, which underscores the fact that these media types are just a bunch of blow-dried millionaire attack dogs, faces who can read off a teleprompter; vanity cases who don't know how to do anything but pose for the camera. Oh, and yes, Fakes.

This is a prime example of what Rush described as Trump using the tweets like a cat owner uses a laser pointer: making the cat chase the dot every day, and crash into the wall.

474 "Woulda been fine mentioning the facelift and stitches to make his point (which was obviously to humiliate), but the guy has got to stop talking about blood and women on the same sentence, it's kinda weird, which makes me think he does it on purpose, but still gotta knock it off." I disagree with this sentiment. Trump understands something about Nature and Truth that has been lost on the rest of us due to our public educations. Women should not be criticizing men.

475 If the tweets improve POTUS' mood, keep 'em coming. I don't care either way. DJT's targets have it coming.
