Trump Twitter Rant Recap: “Fake News is Distorting Democracy in Our Country!”

President Donald Trump took to Twitter anew to share his thoughts and sentiments on pressing issues and controversies surrounding his administration, and some members of his first family.

First, the President fired off against what he thinks is the double standards and bias of mainstream media. He said: “Hillary Clinton can illegally get the question to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?”

The tweet has been shared more than 11,000 times and liked by more than 40,000 users.

Donald, Jr. is in the middle of a controversy spread by mainstream media regarding alleged links with Russians over the 2016 presidential campaign. The latest issue is that Donald rump’s campaign committee supposedly paid $50,000 to the firm of a lawyer representing Donald Trump, Jr. 13 days before emails regarding the alleged links to Russia were publicly released.

On his next follow-up tweet within the same hour, the President chose to show appreciation to his supporters. He posted: “Thank you to all the supporters, who far out-numbered the protesters, yesterday at the Women’s U.S. Open. Very cool!” The said tweet in just about two hours got almost 7,000 retweets and liked by almost 35,000 followers.

The President continues his tweeting spree today with a special call out to his former campaign adviser Michael Caputo. Trump wrote: “Thank you to former campaign adviser Michael Caputo for saying so powerfully that there was no Russian collusion in our winning campaign.”

Michael Caputo said that he “never once” spoke to anyone about the possibility of receiving help from the Russian government to get Trump elected. He made that statement during his appearance to the congressional committee, and repeated the same on his interviews with media.

The appreciation tweet of Trump to his former campaign adviser, in less than two hours, got more than 6,000 retweets and over 28,000 likes. Trump supporters also reacted to the tweet by sending their love and support to the President, with some quoting biblical passages to say to Trump that he would be vindicated as well in this issue, and with his presidency.

For his latest salvo, the President again took the mainstream media to task for being “fake” and “fraudulent”. Trump wrote: “With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!”

Despite being the most recent of all his tweets today, his admonition of the media tweet has already garnered almost 8,000 retweets and liked by 29,000.

Screw double standard complaint, nail 'anyone' who's guilty of crime, Trump, Clinton,etc.

As regards Caputo, it's hardly likely that if there was collusion that he'd admit it, and finally, enough with the 'fake news' bleat, calling everyone else a liar just makes you sound like a child. It's mean't be President Trump, not Toddler.

OK, now who's going to cry and shout shill, commie, jew, etc? Anyone?

You have no idea how ruined you are to normal people, when you slang is no longer understandable, and becomes just some sort of criminal tech speak.

Actually I speak excellent english, admittedly nerve damage in my hands can cause spelling errors, etc, however when you rather inanely babble your frankly desparate ravings, screetching 'fake news' or shill, etc it is you whose language and reasoning skills appear ruined to normal people. I suspect however that by 'normal' you refer to the other weak minded individuals with which you normally associate. Due to your now rather obvious inability to understand basic english I shall attempt to make it clearer for you.

The 1st part refers to the presidents complaint regarding double standards, my response was about getting 'everyone' who is guilty regardless of side/s and prosecuting them, comprehend?

The 2nd refers to the highly unlikely chance that a possible criminal(IE, Caputo) would willingly admit guilt. Also here was the statement regarding acting like a child(IE, Trump) by accusing everyone of being liars, I know that's hard for you to understand, but do try.

And finally, the expectation that someone or perhaps more would throw the verbal equivalent of fecal matter. In this case rather shockingly someone, namely you attempted to be clever, now normally I would break down the rather enfeebled linguistics that have been attempted against me but frankly I highly doubt that you have managed to get this far with my commentary, at least not without a great deal of help, plus if you have actually managed to find someone to help you, I would imagine you are still attempting to understand. Anyway in regards your 'writing', I have already briefly refered to your 'ruined' comment, but as for 'criminal tech speak'? Seriously, that's frankly rather embarrasing even by your standards. Must go, I have other fools with which to elucidate, I bid you good luck in your search for a good education in understanding the english language.
