He is a never ending source of amusement!

Trump lashes out at department store's decision to drop his daughter's fashion label?

My daughter Ivanka has been treated so unfairly by @Nordstrom. She is a great person -- always pushing me to do the right thing! Terrible!

it seems to me this is where amusement stops.

He shouldn't be promoting his or his daughter's business from the White House.

How come he still uses @realDonaldTrump? Have they not let him loose on the @POTUS account?

If I were the daughter I wouldn't feel promoted, I'd feel embarrassed.

As to him: He can't make too many mistakes quickly enough, no?

He's using both, although many (most?) of the @POTUS tweets are not authored by him. He signs his own (tiny-) hand-crafted tweets on @POTUS with "-DJT". However, I just noticed that a sizable number of tweets by @POTUS are retweets from @realDonaldTrump. Lolz.

I would guess that he just can't bear to tear himself away from his adoring fanbase of 24.2 million followers (exactly one of whom I apparently know, Twitter tells me -- and that's a corporate account!) to downsize to the 15.1 million followers of @POTUS.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trumps tweet today about a Politico poll
Quote:
Donald J. Trump
‏@realDonaldTrump

'Immigration Ban Is One Of Trump's Most Popular Orders So Far'
Strange he does not mention that is an old poll and yesterday's poll in Politico tells a different story

Quote:
A majority of U.S. voters disapprove of President Donald Trump’s recent actions on immigration, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

The Quinnipiac University survey shows 51 percent of voters oppose Trump’s executive order suspending travel from seven predominately Muslim countries to the U.S., 60 percent oppose suspending all refugee programs, and 70 percent oppose indefinitely barring Syrian refugees from emigrating to the U.S.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Hopeful signs
Quote:
Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch told a US senator Wednesday that President Donald Trump's tweets about the judiciary are "demoralizing" and "disheartening."

In a meeting with Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, Gorsuch, who's largely been silent since Trump nominated him last week, took exception to Trump calling a federal judge in Seattle a "so-called judge" after blocking the President's travel ban.

Ron Bonjean, who is leading communications for Gorsuch during the confirmation process, confirmed Gorsuch called Trump's tweet about the "so-called judge" "disheartening" and "demoralizing" in his conversation with Blumenthal.
Pity the Attorney General Nominee Jeff Sessions is so quiet on this topic.

Breitbart are calling for Nordstrom shoppers to cut up their store cards and boycott the store. Quelle surprise! Is this the future of American retailing and business? Upset the POTUS's offspring and we'll take you down. So much for free enterprise...

Good point made to Kellyanne Conway, why hasn't Trump tweeted a single word about the six Muslims killed in Quebec?

well people...I tell you to go and check grabyourwallet.org to boycott businesses supporting Trump or carrying Trump products. It's time to move from passive resistance to active non-violent resistance.

I think I like that. Only, I doubt I shop at any places connected to Trump already, so he wouldn't notice.
Do Swiss businesses do business with Trump?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

5th company to drop her line so tough luck. Fallling sales are falling sales. If it was a Trump company he'd have done the same thing. Talk about hypocrite.

Even his Supreme Court nominiee is finding it all a bit too much to stomach.

"Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court has described the president's attacks on the judiciary as "demoralising" and "disheartening".

Oh, nothing stops the Trump amusement train. Plus, why now? I mean, I agree on the general point, but it's probably one of the least empirically destructive things he's done or attempted to do while in office. I guess it's typical that the red line for someone right-leaning would involve money and business and not inhumane, environmentally destructive policies, etc.

Some newspapers have pointed out this Ivanka/Nordstrom tweet was sent out 20 minutes after the scheduled start of Trump's Intelligence Briefing.
So either the briefing was boring him or he skipped it

It's pretty well documented and reported that this isn't what's happening. Though feel free to take it as "fake news" if you want.
