Two days from now, Barack Obama will be an average, normal American citizen, who happens to have been the most powerful person in the world for the past eight years. A brass New Yorker, Donald Trump, who has pledged to once again make American great, will preside at the White House in Obama’s place.
For some reason, last night, when looking at the latest twitter storm conducted by Donald Trump, my mind wandered onto some of the great US Presidents, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, Ronald Reagan. To me, the very notion that very shortly, Donald J. Trump will join the exclusive fraternity of American brotherhoods—American Presidents, is staggering.
Here’s twitter twats, or, better said, some "believe it or nots" of the hard-to-believe-Presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as seen on twitter.
Below is a video I created (with short commentary) of some of the interesting campaign related tweets regarding the elections.
The media are ramping up the attacks on Donald Trump as the election draws nearer. On Monday, the Trump campaign banned the Washington Post from covering their political events. It was a response to a misrepresentation of Trump’s comments about President Obama. Media critic Howard Kurtz blasted the newspaper for an inaccurate headline suggesting that Trump was saying that Obama was somehow involved in the Orlando shooting.
As this goes to press, the Baton Rouge Press Club is hosting the gubernatorial candidates today for its forum. Present, are Democrat Jon Bel Edwards and Republicans Jay Dardenne and Scott Angelle. Not present is US Senator David Vitter.
We have a race.
We all know that Donald J. Trump is dominating the republican candidates in the polls, on TV talk shows, news programs and yes, even social media.
First, the Confederate flag comes down in South Carolina. Then, the US Supreme Court affirms the federal exchanges under Obamacare. Today, the same court approves gay marriages throughout the United States.
I know that tweet stalking is a kinky way to follow the news. But, in the new era of digital communications, it beats watching Fox News and MSNBC during the afternoons.
How important is the Internet and social media in the world of politics?
If money is the mother's milk of politics, social media and the Internet are the light beams.
If Twitter is the country’s thermometer, the debate over Jindal ‘s comments at the White House on Monday is hitting boiling. However, so far, based upon the volume of negative comments to date, Jindal’s PR machine needs more firepower.
