Trump Launches Sunday Morning Russia Tweet Barrage - Goes on Offensive

This post first appeared on Russia Insider

If you are not following the Trumpster on Twitter, you are missing out on a lot.  We highly recommend doing so.

Incidentally, we completely agree with him, that his tweeting is highly effective, very useful, and a good thing, and that it would be a huge mistake for him to stop.  It is understandable that the left should gripe and moan about it, but when this idea extends to many of his so-called political allies, it reflects gross political stupidity.

He's winning, again

His mauling of the appalling and slimy Joe and Mika recently was politically brilliant and sorely needed - partly because he does not have a powerful media voice to do it for him.  It played wonderfully with his base, which is what is important.

For the umpteenth time, Trump, and whoever is helping with his Twitter (Bannon?), get it, and the mainstream, on both sides, do not.  How many times are we going to have to watch this movie?

Trump is obviously not backing down and going on the offensive re Russia.  Why?  Because he is winning the great Russia debate.



His opinion, which is correct, is that it is a completely fabricated load of BS.



He doubles down on his intention to partner with Russia instead of confront her.



He hammers the Democrats where they are weak:



He pounds away at the lying media who ran with this trumped up nonsense, where they are weak:



And he covers his tail politically from being accused of appeasing anyone, but makes it clear that he intends to fix these issues, at which point sanctions will be removed.  Our bet is that this will happen within a year or two - to frantic opposition by that same media and establishment that created these artificial conflicts.



All very effective and efficient at about 140 words, or about 1120 characters, and finished before breakfast.  With no media to distort and twist what you said.
