POTUS gives away how worried he is by how many tweets he shoots out into America. Thursday all day, the Judiciary Committee held their televised hearing to discuss amendments to the impeachment of Donald J. Trump, only the fourth president to do so. He has shown his high anxiety in a Twitter storm.
Beginning early, the president blasted out what is equivalent to unprecedented volumes of tweeted, albeit small ones. He released them faster than people could even read them.
Just tune in to the cable news shows today, and there has been a vast array of male Republican emotion erupting all over the place — and they say women are emotional. Of course, there were also Trump’s raging tweets for an up-close and personal peek into his state of mind.
POTUS began tweeting early and emotionally:
‘I will be on the @IngrahamAngle at 10pmET!!! I have no doubt it will be quite the show tonight!
He retweeted one of his favorites Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH):
‘The IG report makes one thing clear: @RepDevinNunes’ memo was spot on. @RepAdamSchiff’s was anything but.’
Then, Trump became a superhero:
‘Fighting for all Americans, and animals too!
Trump pointed to the new polls:
‘“New Polls Say Most Americans Oppose Impeachment.” @foxandfriends I did nothing wrong. This will be the first Impeachment ever where there was no crime. They don’t even allege a crime. Crazy!’
Then, he went after the media:
‘It’s great to have a wonderful subject, President Trump. Fake News like CNN & MSNBC are dying. If they treated me fairly, they would do well. Have Zero credibility!’
The president retweeted a White House message quoting one of the president’s drum beaters, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)
‘Sen. Ted Cruz: “A lawyer at the FBI creates fraudulent evidence, alters an email that is in turn used as the basis for a sworn statement to the court that the court relies on. Am I stating that accurately?” Inspector General Horowitz: “That is correct. That is what occurred.”’
Then, he retweeted Congresswoman Debbie Lesko:
‘This is the most corrupt, rigged railroad job I have ever seen in my entire life.”
Next, Trump retweeted about “spying:”
‘Unfortunately, we were right.’
Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) is another of the president’s favorites:
‘WATCH → @Jim_Jordan destroys the Dems’ impeachment sham. It comes down to this: Dems never accepted the results of the 2016 election and never will. Dems don’t respect your vote, and think they know better. Period.’
House Judiciary Committee Minority Leader Representative Doug Collins (R-GA) has been beating his drum for Trump, too:
‘The American public can see the Democrats are on a 3-year vendetta to get the president they couldn’t beat, and they’re desperate to do it before @realDonaldTrump wins again next year.’
Then, Representative Andy Biggs (R-GA) went after the Democrats by quoting the loosely maintained Representative Louie Gohmert (R-IA):
‘Democrats in Congress – NOT @POTUS @realDonaldTrump – have committed the high crimes and misdemeanors of Abuse and Power and Obstruction of Congress that are laid on the table. Thank you,@replouiegohmert , for speaking truth during this sad time in American history.’
POTUS liked Representative Steve Chabot (R-OH):
‘To satisfy their base’s extreme hatred of President Trump, House Democrats have taken a blowtorch to House rules, the rule of law, and most frighteningly, to the Bill of Rights’
Then, it was back to Senator Ted Cruz:
‘.@Tedcruz making a critical point more in the media should note. These “17 FBI errors” the IG cites are not typos or little misspellings. These are grave abuses. Using false information. Purposefully withholding exculpatory info. Editing documents. List goes on. Chilling.’
Biggs accused House Intelligence Committee Chair Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — not the president:
‘“Do we have Abuse of Power? Yes, Adam Schiff. Do we have Obstruction of Congress? Yes, House Democrats. This is a political hit job (against President’
Next, the House Judiciary GOP released a tweet quoting drum beater Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL):
‘.@RepMattGaetz: “This is the quickest, thinnest, weakest, most partisan impeachment in all of American presidential history.”’
Clearly a presidential favorite, Collins tweeted a bunch of nonsense from Representative Martha Roby (R-AL):
‘.@RepMarthaRoby: The bar to impeach a sitting president of the United States has not been met. I implore my colleagues to take a hard look at the course of this investigation. It has severely discounted the tenants of our democratic system.’
Collins tried to blow the impeachment articles apart:
‘.@RepMikeJohnson: It’s rather shocking that Democrats built their impeachment articles on mere hearsay, speculation, and conjecture that wouldn’t even be admissible in your local traffic court.’
Trump retweeted another Representative Jordan special:
‘They’re never going to stop!’
POTUS even retweeted his official White House tweet against NAFTA, which he could easily try to take down should he get a second term:
‘Decades ago, @realDonaldTrump identified what was wrong with NAFTA—and later ran for President on a promise to replace it. USMCA is his vision. West Wing Reads: 45.wh.gov/qPpLTE’
After that, the president bragged about his Pennsylvania rally:
‘Great Rally in Pennsylvania last night. Congressman Lloyd Smucker (PA-11) was there and I informed him that he has my complete and total Endorsement for the upcoming 2020 Election. Lloyd has done a great job. I am with him all the way!’
Twitter world exploded. Check out these great responses below:
