It seems like every day there is a new story about how President Trump has said or done something that has offended someone or has just sounded dumb. Unlike presidents before him, President Trump’s preferable method of communication is through his personal Twitter.
This means there is no one there to censor what he says since it is not through the official POTUS Twitter account. Therefore, President Trump is free to give everyone a nickname and call others low-lives. President Trump’s Twitter account is full of insults, name-calling, and prideful boasts. Which to me, and many others, does not show the level of competency one might expect from a world leader.
Trump is different from other presidents in many ways. From the start, his fans have said that they appreciate how he is willing to “tell it like it is.” This is upsetting because there are many times where President Trump makes incorrect statements and it gets him in trouble.
There has been much backlash due to his Supreme Court Nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and rightfully so. With Kavanaugh’s focus being on Roe v. Wade, it comes as no surprise that he doesn’t care much for women’s rights.
Kavanaugh has allegedly sexually assaulted many women in his past. Just recently President Trump has made several comments regarding believing the women that have come forward.
Some of the comments, coming from his Twitter account, have been “I have no doubt that, if the attack on Dr. Ford was as bad as she says, charges would have been immediately filed with local Law Enforcement Authorities by either her or her loving parents…” and “Judge Brett Kavanaugh is a fine man, with an impeccable reputation, who is under assault by radical left-wing politicians who don’t want to know the answers, they just want to destroy and delay…”
His Twitter is where he also insults Michael Avenatti, one of the victim’s attorney, calling him a third-rate lawyer with false accusations and a low life. Posting these tweets in the heat of the #MeToo movement was not the right move.
By now everyone has heard of what happened when President Trump spoke at the UN last week. The president made boastful remarks such as, “in less than 2 years my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country.”
While this kind of comment may work at Trump rallies, it did not go well at the UN, and the audience literally erupted in laughter.
This is the first time a president has been laughed at during a speech at the UN. Now, the question is will President Trump’s supporters still claim that only the Democrats are wrong, or will they finally acknowledge that the Democrats and the rest of the world may be right about President Trump?
