We have entered the age of “The Twitter President,” and it is not pretty.
President Donald Trump uses his Twitter account to babble inanely, spew venom and hatred, spread falsehoods of all sorts, brag about himself, make excuses and insult people. He calls any news he doesn’t like “fake news,” when he is the real master of fake news.
He also uses pet names for his foes, such as “Pocahontas,” “Crooked Hillary.” Lyin’ Ted,” “Little Marco,” “Rocket Man,” etc.
Although I’ve heard folks refer to Trump with nicknames such as “Adolf Twitler,” “Agent Orange” and “Putin’s Puppet,” my favorite pet name for him is simply: “Dumb Donald.”
