Donald Trump, Jr. continues to try to win his father’s affections. Apparently, he has not learned that his father, as an extroverted narcissist is not capable of that particular emotion. Nor does his son see that POTUS will throw anybody under the bus in order to save his own neck, including his children. Yet, the president’s eldest tried to jump on a Republican tweet fest train today. Unfortunately, he missed.
The House of Representatives started the public impeachment hearings with a heavy somber weight of history. Yet, all Don Jr. could talk about was a headline as he attacked the online publication The Hill:
‘Meadows slams ex-Bush aide’s ‘reprehensible’ remark about GOP congresswoman’
The president’s eldest son tweeted implying The Hill was up to no good for describing Matthew Dowd as an ex-George W. Bush aide rather than an ABC analyst. He clearly did not understand that the person who wrote the headlines was usually not the reporter:
‘Is he not an @ABC employee currently? Isn’t that much more relevant than ex-Bush aide (10+ years ago) given the sexist remarks he made yesterday and ABC’s recent very shady actions and total silence & coverup of Epstein & their now fired Whistleblower? You see a pattern here?
Matthew Dowd is currently an ABC News political analyst but also proud of his times as an aide to President George W. Bush. He tweeted this, dancing on the edge of sexism:
‘[Representative] Elise Stefanik is a perfect example of why just electing someone because they are a woman or a millennial doesn’t necessarily get you the leaders we need.’
Representative Mark Meadows (R-NC) defended his colleague, Elise Stefanik (R-NY):
‘Elise did a great job laying out the facts. And, not least of all, this comment is reprehensible.’
‘Thx @RepMarkMeadows! It’s a good thing I wasn’t raised to measure my self-worth or professional work based on tweets from self-important @MSNBC commentators like Dowd (who is he again?)! I earn support from #NY21 voters bc of my focus on keeping my promises & delivering #Results’
Matthew Dowd wrote, then deleted this tweet:
‘Elise stefanik is a perfect example of why just electing someone because they are a woman or a millennial doesn’t necessarily get you the leaders we need.’

After all that, Don Trump tweeted an attack on the well-known online news publication’s headline.
The event that started the whole Twitter fest occurred when Stefanik walked into a rapid-fire political duel with House Intelligence Committee Chair and impeachment point man Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) over the whistleblower’s identity. This first whistelblower’s complaint sparked the impeachment inquiry.
She asked Schiff:
‘Will you be prohibiting witnesses from members’ questions as you have during the closed-door depositions?’
The committee chair answered:
‘[W]hen it was apparent that members were seeking to out the whistleblower. I’m disturbed to hear members of the committee who have in the past voiced strong support for whistleblower protections seek to undermine those protections by outing the whistleblower.’
Who is Matthew Dowd really? According to his speakers’ bureau Leading Authorities, Inc.:
‘Matthew John Dowd [is a] Chief Political Analyst for ABC News; Author of Best-Selling Applebee’s America; and Campaign Strategist for More Than 100 Campaigns.’
In addition, the bio said Dowd was:
- ‘Chief strategist on winning reelection efforts for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and President George W. Bush
- Has advised President Barack Obama, Bono, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation
- Explains where America is today and what values and strategies will be most successful’
