10 Reasons Why Trump’s Twitter Is Politically Incorrect

The man has over 35,000 tweets, engraved deeply on the internet.

I wonder how many of those embedded messages are offensive, objectionable and most of all, unpresidential. When you scroll down the list of presidents, Trump presents a portfolio that does not seem to fall into the same bracket. From his obsession with WrestleMania to reality TV, his temper tantrums and Twitter outbursts have followed him all the way to the White House.

I get it, social media is becoming more and more of a place for expression and less of a source of information, but every day, Mr. President?

Rather than informing us of your erratic emotions, can you please tweet us updates that are relevant to the prestigious title you hold at the moment?

One thing for certain is you have kept it real, @realDonaldTrump. You’ve conveyed how “stupid” people are while you continue to make yourself great — not America.

By no means is this supposed to be taken as bashing our 45th president, but more as a critique and reflection on the person who has helped create a lot of controversy for millions of people.

Trump campaigned on a promise to be politically incorrect. He’s been delivering for years.

Check out why Trump’s Twitter is politically incorrect.

1. Everyone else is a liar

Some call it a tirade. It seems like more than some have an issue with his Twitter. People have even taken further action to get him booted off including famous Luke Skywalker, Mark Hamill. There is currently a GoFundMe campaign that seeks to raise $1 billion to become a majority shareholder on Twitter. Once the funds are accomplished, community guidelines will be followed to kick the president off of Twitter, according to Fox News. The campaign so far has raised $83,000.

Who else is down for the cause?

 

2. He is a bragger

He’s not just a bragger but a blocker too. He has quite the list of Twitter users who don’t agree with him, so he blocks them. He must have learned this from Twitter 101. People have the right to freedom of speech, and in my opinion, our president should be most interested in what we the people have to say. However, by the looks of the lists, he doesn’t seem to really care too much of what we think. If you think about it, out of the 37 million followers, he only follows 45 of them, including seven who are his family members. What does your news feed look like, Trump? It’s all about Trump, not the people, not America. He’s not like our beloved 44th president Barak Obama for example, who has 92 million followers and follows 628,000 Twitter users.

How does he block an organization that has fought for this country?

3. He’s just plain mean

So we know that he brags, blocks and bullies — The 3 Bs. Some may find his tweets amusing but after the chuckles, people will find how offensive and inappropriate his tweets really are. Twitter is definitely Trump’s defense mechanism. When he feels threatened or attacked in any way, he takes it to Twitter. When campaigning, media was reporting on his tweets. This is how he was campaigning — by bullying other candidates, not by showing the people how he’s a sophisticated and fitting candidate for president. I could only imagine that 2020 would be the same — if he is able to run, of course.

4. Everyone else is dumb

“You know, I’m like a smart person.” — Donald Trump

Like that time Trump met with the two pastors of two major Presbyterian churches in New York according to foreignpolicy.com.

“I did very, very well with evangelicals in the polls,” he bragged. When the pastors told Trump they weren’t evangelicals, he demanded to know, “what are you then?” They told him they were mainline Presbyterians. “But you’re all Christians.”

The Kicker: Trump himself is Presbyterian. But he seems to think everyone else is dumb. You wouldn’t believe how many tweets you can find in his Twitter archives about calling out those he thinks are dumb. If you don’t believe me, you can check for yourself.

5. He’s in denial

Isn’t he the one that is racist?

“I’m the least racist person that you have ever met.”

If you ask him, that’s his response, but if you ask anyone else they’ll tell you different. He’s displayed so many racist and unmindful gestures and of course, all of them are unapologetic. Trump does things to add fuel to the fire.

The latest racist gesture came after the Charlottesville attack. Only after extreme criticism, Trump explained how “racism is evil.” It took him two days to say something that simple, that small, after originally blaming “many sides.” Two fatalities, 35 injuries, and there’s “many sides” to this? All this in support of his white supremacist supporters. I guess Trump needs to be careful with what he says.

6. He thinks you should only be heard if you’re rich

Not only is Trump a supporter of racism but classism too. As an over-privileged American who came from status, he doesn’t understand reality. Just because someone can’t afford a suit doesn’t make them any less educated, and just because you have billions doesn’t make you invincible.

“When I look at myself in the first grade, and I look at myself now, I’m basically the same.”

Of course, we see his childish ways, but it makes you think about how he was as a rich kid growing up. Trump’s father was a real estate developer and gave little Donny $14 million to start his business after college.

Sorry, Mr. President. We don’t all have the luxury of hand-me-down millions!

7. He likes to play victim when it’s convenient

Many reputable sources including Time, CNN, and Washington Post to name a few all think that Trump plays the victim. He tweets out about how unfairly and unjustifiably everyone treats him. He likes to criticize everyone and everything but when it comes back on him, he cries.

8. He is the divider-in-chief

He clearly is aware that he has enemies. I’m assuming that he may have had enemies before the presidency, but he pushed it to another level. His latest war seems to be with North Korea, and I mean that literally. He has been tweeting, which means taunting North Korea, clearly not understanding what’s at stake.

Many people, including Republicans and Trump voters, want Trump to stop tweeting. Does he understand that his Twitter is public? He’s giving enemies — not just his enemies but our enemies — insights. Many people are concerned with this but he is still tweeting.

9. He’s hypocritical

 

We all have heard it from him. He would bad-mouth Obama every chance he could get. He criticized him as a president and a citizen of U.S. Trump attacked Obama on his work ethic and promised that if he ran for office, he would not be a president who took vacations. By the end of August, the Republican will have taken 53 days off since his inauguration in January. On the other hand, we, American citizens have had only four paid holidays — less ofr those who balance two-to-three jobs. If that’s not enough, according to independent.co.uk, Trump’s trips have already cost taxpayers around $30 million, including private travel and security guards. Obama’s travel costs came to around $100 million during his eight years as president.

Can anybody say “hypocrite”? Trump has already spent 22 percent of his time as president at golf resorts, yet he criticized Obama for playing basketball.

10. I know I am but what are you?

When Trump said that he hasn’t changed since first grade, believe him. He wants the attention but not the bad press. When he receives it, he plays the victim. He criticizes his critics but gets offended when it’s done to him. It’s called the Golden Rule, Trump: Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Republican Jeb Bush said it well:

“Look, I didn’t support Donald Trump. I didn’t vote for him, but he’s our president,” Bush said. “I want him to succeed. I wanted Barack Obama to succeed, and anything that undermines the presidency weakens our ability to solve problems. It’s not about him. It’s about people’s hopes being lifted. And so that’s my advice. Donald, I know you watch CNBC, you’re an avid cable watcher. Get on with it, man. You’re president of the United States. You’ve got great opportunity. The country will rally behind you.”

    There is nothing politically correct or incorrect in a truly liberal society. The political philosophy of liberalism demands that all speakers and ideas be considered in order to come up with a better solution than either could come up with on his own. “Politically correct/incorrect” is a Maoist, anti-liberal worldview that is a cheap imitation of Confucianism. Where Confucius lauded individual responsibility, Mao preached strict adherence to the state and those who would do people’s thinking for them. Nothing is more destructive to the body politic than the idea that one and only one solution exists for each political problem. It is the sure sign of a totalitarian.

      Spot-on, awesome comment! Unfortunately, those who need to hear it most….won’t.

      • Abu Nudnik

        Thanks very much. But we might not need that many. Even a few can do a powerful lot of good since they know people who know people… as in the shampoo ad.

        Have you heard about Jordan Peterson? Check him out on YouTube. He’s been canned, lost his funding money, is going private. People have collected so much he’s decided to create an alt-university. Tremendous development to rescue Western thought and knowledge processes.

          I first heard of Mr. Peterson when he did a video regarding ‘Islamaphobia’ and government attempting to censor criticism of Islam. It was refreshing to hear an academic speak the truth, hence the personal attacks against him.
          I believe he’s Canadian and his continued truth-telling is especially important now with and Islamic-appeasing PM. Canadians aren’t as ‘woke’ yet as they need to be. Anyway, I will read a little more about him & check out his alt-university plans. Thanks for the info!

            Yes. University of Toronto, also in private practice. He came to the fore opposing Kathleen Wynn’s Ontario government bill that would make it a criminal offense to “misgender” someone. It was his “I will not use your pronouns” line that made him a target. (Imagine just thirty years ago. Would anyone even understand what that meant?)

            The plain speaking on issues is what he’s about. Intellectual honesty above all and moral behavior. You might say he’s a sort of Patrick Henry with one word substituted: “Give me honesty or give me death.” In my opinion, his most important attack is on the fraud of postmodernism, a disease that has the universities turning to excrement before our eyes, making it impossible to discuss any issue at all with honesty. Consider the preposterous notion in schools today that logic itself is a “patriarchal” tool of oppression.

            Another exciting branch is his body of lectures (on YouTube) about religion, myth, metaphor, and meaning,The Psychological Significance of the Bible Stories:

            He’s a first class intellect who now has raised a tremendous amount of money through Patreon.com. He exceeded his target and now has plans to create a web-based university-level educational platform to get around the circus the universities have become. I became a patron today.
