Asking Donald Trump to not tweet is the same as asking normal people to not blink. They can hold out for a while, but then the urge to do so becomes impossible for them to resist. Given how POTUS has been known as the Twitter king, why would anyone urge Trump to refrain from tweeting?
Rapid-Response Bobby Lewis live-tweets Fox & Friends. Yet as he noted, he was not the real Donald J. Trump. He tweeted:
‘Fox & Friends asks President Trump not to tweet during today’s impeachment hearings: “The president should just ignore this whole thing. … Don’t get outraged over it. It ticks you off.’
Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade asked the president to do the near-impossible. He urged the man in the Oval Office to refrain from tweeting:
‘The president should just ignore this whole thing. Don’t tweet during it. Don’t get outraged over it. It ticks you off. There’s so much for him to do — I just think that let these guys, like [Representative] Doug Collins (R-GA) and company, fight it out and keep it on the straight and narrow, from the Republican perspective.’
Several members of the president’s administration, past and present, appeared before the House Intelligence Committee to testify about possible Trump impeachment activity, specifically as it related to Ukraine.
In the morning hearing, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, testified. He is a Ukraine specialist on the National Security Council (NSC), which demands the highest caliber of professionalism. He has been concerned about the president pressuring Ukrainian leaders to hold an actual or invented investigation into Trump’s top political adviser.
National security veteran currently detailed to serve Vice President Mike Pence, Jennifer Williams, appeared with Vindman. In addition, former special envoy to Kyiv Kurt Volker and NSC staff member Tim Morrison appeared Tuesday afternoon.
