Pres. Trump is embroiled in another Twitter fight with the media, this time with MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. According to a Fox News poll, 71% of respondents think Pres. Trump’s Twitter shenanigans are damaging or distracting from Trump’s policy agenda.

I live for his tweets. I leap out of bed every morning to read them.

The true childish behavior comes from a lying, deceptive media and Democratic party. The problem is the American people are not stupid enough to fall for it anymore. GROW UP, it is embarrassing!
July 3, 2017,10:49 pm
Stay with the Nation’s business and stop so much tweeting.
July 3, 2017,6:34 pm
Amazing how people will support a man-child who behaves like a 12 year old spoiled brat.
July 3, 2017,5:17 pm
I forgot to mention the scumbag liberal professors we actually pay money to, to turn potential bright minds into oosy black goo! We will have a whole generation of worthless, helpless crybabies that won’t be able to contribute a single thing to the prosperity of this nation. Longer if we don’t figure out a strategy to rid our colleges of these zombie teachers.

All the angry Dummycrats on this post are mental midgets. Obama was a smooth talker, but a destructive con artist. (We have trouble! Trouble right here in river city!) If there was a right decision to make, he made the exact opposite wrong one, or no decision at all (wringing his hands in indecisiveness). Which is worse. He fiddled while the world burned. He butt kissed every terrorist on the planet with idiotic thinking- “They just need to be my friend!” Then they wouldn’t be terrorists anymore! (Jobs for Jihadis) He tried to swing America so Socialist, I’m surprised we survived it. If Trump can only fix all the idiot mistakes Obama made, he has done his job. Any progress above that-genius. If the media would just act fair, balanced, report ACTUAL accomplishments instead of making up biased, liberal, one sided BS, he would have the highest ratings. But when you are spoon fed liberal lies. Indoctrinated by phony conspiracy theories 24/7 by supposed news media. Russia? Please. Collusion? The only collusion is when 100 million went into a phony, RICO breaking charity, then miraculously 20% of our Uranium went to RUSSIA! There is your Russia conspiracy Rachel Maddow, you moron. Hillary Clinton foundation. It is no wonder the clueless sheep think he is doing the wrong thing.

Tweet Trump Tweet On! The lame stream media has lost control of their propaganda spewing monopoly of the news. President Trump circumvents their false narratives to go directly to his supporters via social media. I Love it. Anyone happen to ‘catch’ the backgrounds of the two liberal misguided idiots on morning joe?
July 3, 2017,10:55 am
his tweets make him look like an idiot, and very childish.
July 2, 2017,11:06 am
Incompetent the mouse says to the cat. Cat a billionaire and POTUS. If that makes him incompetent, what does it say for all the failures never being as successful and unable to get the votes for POTUS. Tells me you are on a losing team. Go Trump. Go get Mika & Joey. I’m sure their betrayed ex- spouses are rooting for you.

I do believe that many of the pariahs in the media have yet to realize that their constant condescending remarks about Donald Trump somehow will infect the minds of weak individuals. They may be right when it comes to some people as evidenced by this very website. Let’s discuss facts instead of B.S. democratic talking points. Trump has been bullied by the media and others since the day he announced his candidacy. As far as being qualified for the job, he is probably the most qualified person to be in the oval office. He has had a REAL job running a multi-billion dollar enterprise. He was not a community organizer with no experience or accomplishments in anything except maybe making a great speech. When you elect a novice, you end up with quite a bit of damage to a great country. Barack Hussein Obama will go down in history as one of if not the worst president ever. Trump has accomplished more in 4 months than the golfer-in-chief accomplished in 8 long years. I wonder how many Trump supporters actually answer the polls when the pollsters contact them! The polls were obviously skewed and wrong in the election. Everyone I talk to with the exception of a few are thrilled with Donald Trump. The truth and the facts are that the media, the Never Trumpers, the Republican Establishment, and, of course, the Democrats are threatened by Donald Trump. Their very existence is at stake. Their gravy trains are drying up quickly. This is why they are non-stop trying to pull every scam to get him out of office. The working people of this country elected him and I wish them luck in their sick endeavor. The people pulling this are so sickened by their hatred of this great man, that they cannot be rational on any level. It is sad and pathetic to say the least!
July 1, 2017,9:06 pm
i do believe
July 1, 2017,8:51 pm
News media bought & paid for by George Soros! Who is putting his money on a collapse of USA & the dollar. Want the truth ask the man himself
July 1, 2017,7:40 pm
I definitely agree with Virginia Ramos! Trump is exactly who we voted for and he should keep up calling these lying, fake personalities,who call themselves journalist, to the hot fire 🔥 of truth!
July 1, 2017,4:49 pm
I agree with oldpete!
July 1, 2017,4:45 pm
After Obama and the past Presidents, President Trump tweets are a refreshing breath air even in the ones where he takes on the fake news reporters who hate him and us so much. We know what he is thinking more than any other President, we may not always agree with him but we have the truth of what he said so if we want to tell him we think he is wrong we can as he too can tell us why he thinks we are right or wrong. He can not answer all tweets but he knows what we are thinking and why and it helps him and us.
July 1, 2017,2:58 pm
The MSM took what they thought was a low risk shot at destroying the reputation of someone who didn’t feed at the same table from which the MSM dines. Donald J Trump is ideologically about as far away from the MSM as you can get so was a target too appealing to pass up.
The actual validity of the hostile attacks against former foes hadn’t mattered very much since they succeeded in their destruction of the individuals influence. Herman Cain & the three paid (proven in a court of law) false accusers is an recent example.
The Lefts apologists in the media are now in a full fledged panic at the prospect of an individual who despite all of their efforts has not only weathered all of the attacks but came out in a position of extreme authority.
The use of social media such as twitter presents an opportunity for the general public to view the target of hostile attacks without any filtration by the media itself is a frightening prospect they never expected.
The level of deceit on the part of the MSM will be on full display for the next few years & there is very little they can do to stop it except try and convince the public to look the other way.
The hubbub about Trumps people having a supposed collusion with the Russians is simply an effort by the MSM to get the public to look the other way
July 1, 2017,2:38 pm
He’s a really smart guy and is doing a great job, however, he makes himself look foolish to get involved with some of the idiots like these 2 morons on MSNBC. Come on Mr President, how do you let them suck you into BS stuff like this while you and us have years worth of rebuilding our country from the traitor socialist Obama. Tweets and fights with idiots only minimize your accomplishments and success for the American people and the liberals just make fun of and laugh at you stooping down to this level.
July 1, 2017,1:37 pm
Yes keep tweeting so you say something criminal and get impeached.
Not qualified at all
Every time he goes to Mara Largo he gets paid!!! No salary my butt.
Nepotism- really why did he give his children role and responsibility? Salary or not it’s a fascist move.
This president is horrible
President puts money over well being of people, sick
July 1, 2017,1:30 pm
POTUS should be more selective on tweets. Those who exploit him like Colbert, Morning Joe are left media playing to their base. They exist on bashing Trump and would be cancelled if didn’t do it daily!!! Forget them!!!
July 1, 2017,1:16 pm
Keep them mad and confused, the haters like Lesie
July 1, 2017,1:11 pm
Bill, you nailed it.
His agendas ignore people in need and the environment .
He gave tax breaks to the rich they don’t fucking need it ! Trickle down never worked Reagan proved that . Why isn’t he closing the tax loopholes that rich people used to not pay taxes ? Because they’re all his friends !!!!! Trump did not pay his taxes that does not make him a good American . He has something to hide or he would release his taxes .
I think he is a nut job operating at the maturity of a five-year-old .
I realize conservatives needed to get someone in the power but this is ridiculous – lowest approval ratings of all time at any president ever
And the fact that he spending time and money campaigning for the next election is absolutely absurd and the fact that he spending time and money campaigning for the next election is absolutely absurd and narcissistic . Me me me – he blames everyone else for everything and he keeps bragging about winning the election – he must not of ever play team sports and learned good sportsman like conduct ?
Oh wait he did play team sports that’s what he was doing when he avoided the military .
What P grabbing jerk
He is the worst thing that’s happened to this country …. ever
I would take Nixon over him
July 1, 2017,12:42 pm
If by ” controlling the message ” you mean being an immature bully than my own means . The bottom line is he is not professional and he is not qualified for this job .
July 1, 2017,12:22 pm
I hope the President keeps tweeting. The only people really annoyed are those who wish to control the message. We The People want to hear from our President in an unfiltered manner.
July 1, 2017,11:35 am
Bill, please for the sake of your reputation, stop making yourself look silly. It is so embarrassing at this point. You may need Lithium along with your democratic counterparts.
July 1, 2017,8:38 am
I am not worried about his Tweets damaging his “pro-super wealthy ignore the people” agenda. In fact I hope they do.
But I am worried that his inane Tweeting will convince the rest of the world that we have a narcissistic bully in the White House with an easily manipulated fragile ego.
His business instincts are bad for the nation.
Next up – he will try to lesson the sanctions on Putin, and ignore Putin’s aggression in the Ukraine.
July 1, 2017,3:42 am
Pres keep on tweeting, you’re freaking the heck out of your enemies, and they’re filled with so much hatred and anger till they’re going absolutely CRAZY!!!!!! and that’s GOOD for the DEVILS…….I believe you’ll go down in history as being a true “PEOPLE’S PRESIDENT”. May God Be With You and Your Family With All God’s Blessings.
July 1, 2017,1:42 am
No I don’t think he damages his agenda if he has a message that that the American citizens need to hear. I do however believe that some of his tweets should be contained if it has nothing to do with his agenda. He won the election and it should be enough said. I believe he only feeds their rant and as long as they can get a rise out of him they will keep up the rant. I see a lot of these as a destraction to his focus. I also believe if President Trump would take serious action against some these, many of these would cease. Its time for political disrespect to be replaced with justice and respect.
July 1, 2017,1:27 am
No! President Trump is fighting fire with fire against a Lying mainstream media. It is moving the needle towards drying up another part of the swamp! Liberals getting caught in their own madness.
July 1, 2017,12:03 am
If he continues;
– he needs to stop insulting others, it is petty .
– he needs to unify not divide America
– he needs to be professional and measured in response
He does none of this and as a result he is a disgraceful communicator .
June 30, 2017,10:16 pm
Yes, President Trump needs to keep on tweeting. That is the only way get exactly what he said or didn’t say. The media sure as heck are not going to report what was actually said. Hannity played some video of Joe Scarborough and Mikla. What Joe said about our President was 1000 times worse than anything they claim that President Trump said. Pure filth and if anyone else said that they would be in prison. Talk about the kettle calling the pot black!
June 30, 2017,9:41 pm
His tweets mean nothing compared to all his accomplishments! Our economy is soaring, so many great things happening and the limbs cannot stand it!! Why are they allowed to humiliate him, put replica decapited head, being killed in every stupid made up way and being ridiculed and slandered horrendously!! He gets no respect even tho he’s giving his all without any help from the Dems and I for one cannot believe how stupidly and vulgar and hateful the opposing party are!!!
June 30, 2017,9:35 pm
He needs to keep his tweets on message, and just quick combat in responses to an attack…then get back on messagr
June 30, 2017,9:28 pm
they are so upset with him tweeting, they know he is telling the truth, and they can’t take that, they are such liars and so fake, the only one i believe is my President, Donald Trump, the other’s can all go to hell, they are all disgusting pigs
June 30, 2017,7:31 pm
This president is a mother fucking asshole. He is the most incompetent person EVER to hold any political office in the entire history of the United State. That buffoon needs to be impeached. He is ruining this country and its image. And FUCK YOU to all of you Trump(re)tards out there how voted for that wretched piece of shit and his entire regime. You are all mother fucking idiots.
June 30, 2017,7:29 pm
I prefer The President Tweek about his agenda items and accomplishments, however, I think it appropriate he defends himself against the likes of those that continue to defame him personally and disrespect the Office of President.
The Shame rests with Joe, Mika, MSNBC, NBC, and Comcast. I boycott them all.
June 30, 2017,7:22 pm
I believe he is because the folks putting out “news” spend all their time on the tweets about a couple of twits instead of talking about the things on Pres. Trump’s agenda that are getting done. And they don’t spend any time on how the Democrats are slowing the process down in the debates that are not necessary in the hearings to approve nominees for various offices.
June 30, 2017,6:51 pm
President Trump is brillant, he knows what he doing.
June 30, 2017,6:33 pm
The mainstream media ought to hop onto the “Trump Train” and get with the new age!!
“They” speak against him because he tells it like ot is!
MAGA MASA Standing with Donald J Trump, The People’s President 🇺🇸
June 30, 2017,6:29 pm
I am so happy about this post. Millions of us know that if President Trump had not tweeted during his run, he would not have made it because he kept tweeting and telling us what was going on. I think I would forget Joe because Joe keeps telling one lie after another. I would tweet an outstanding answer than let it go. Joe is Pussy Whipped by Mika. He left a beautiful, stinking wife for a piece of trash. This is called Karma for him and it is only going to get worse for Joe. I keep wondering why JOE left Congress so quickly in 1990s. It seems like he just got elected and he bowed out. And the wife he left was so beautiful. Mikas mouth is going to destroy her. The filthy trash these 2 throw at Trump is absolutely unthinkable. Ask yourself why 2 people would forgo their vacation to come in and spend time trashing and lying about Trump. Remember, JOE AND TRUMP were once friends until Joe met Mika. Trump does not lie, so, listen to Joe one lie after another. Hum, wonder what is up.
June 30, 2017,6:19 pm
If I didn’t see Mika & Joe on Hannity I wouldn’t have known these two imbeciles existed. President Trump is the best President we’ve had in a long time. I voted for him and I’ll vote for him again happily.
June 30, 2017,6:13 pm
Whats more important our nations security, our economy,our military ,our police or hurting some left wing assholes feelings after they attack the President I say Go Trump Go Build That Wall and keep kicking those liberals in the ass when they attack you!!
June 30, 2017,6:11 pm
Mr. President, BE YOURSELF, don,t worry if they don,t like it. Hit them harder. They are not voting for you anyways. The hell if they don,t like the truth about themselves. I LOVE IT. GOD BLESS YOU.
June 30, 2017,6:02 pm
I agree with James A.Mr President did you forget stick & stones may break my bone but words will never hurt me . well your word are hurting yourself.
June 30, 2017,5:48 pm
Apparently, Lib-Dems are jumping on and purposefully skewing this poll with a 2% change in a half-hour. They have nothing better to do than to skew polls.
June 30, 2017,5:47 pm
His job is to run America, not spend all of his time watching TV and tweeting. He should set his ego aside and act like a man of distinction rather than a disgruntled kid. So sad that our country is subjected to his temper tantrums every day.
June 30, 2017,5:45 pm
A wise man considers before he posts. The sloppy thinker does the unthinkable: speaking or writing without thinking. Do not ruin your excellent agenda, Mr. President, be a man of considered action and few words unless the word are thoughtful and considered.
June 30, 2017,5:38 pm
I don’t mind tweets to some extent but he should not get down on their low level. It makes it hard on all who support him and it undermines his agenda. We need him to focus on issues. So far he is trying to do more for us than any other president in the last decade.
June 30, 2017,5:37 pm
This CBC poll is accurate: 63% Help vs. 37% Hurt. The Fix News poll is wrong as usual at 71% Hurt vs. 17% Help. Fix News is turning into a liberal outlet, and that’s why their polling is skewed towards the leftists. The Fix News polling results are the opposite of the CBC poll results. Sad. I prefer to receive the true facts from One America News (OAN) of the OAN Network (OANN).
Fix News was right to separate Megyn Kelly, Bob Beckel, Greta Van Susteren, and Kirsten Powers and wrong to remove Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly. They should also remove Shepard Smith, Mike Wallace, Geraldo Rivera, and Juan Williams. If they ever remove Sean Hannity, Eric Bolling, Judge Jeanine Pirro, Judge Andrew Napolitano, and Greg Gutfeld, Fix News would be finished for good.
June 30, 2017,5:34 pm
I meant that they should NOT be a media in the U.S.
June 30, 2017,5:33 pm
People need to focus more on what the leftest media has said about our president and his family. The media is full of hate and defeat. They disrespect the office of the President with foul language and their childish ways, I feel that they should be a media in the United States. Tweet on Mr. President.
June 30, 2017,5:31 pm
They know how to get to you president Trump. Just tweet your agenda to us. Give us the truth of what you’re doing. They want to enrage you so that they can say that you are not fit to be president! Don’t fall victim to the plan! You are smarter than they are and that’s what’s killing them! God bless you ,you have us all behind you stay strong
June 30, 2017,5:27 pm
Keep tweeting president Trump. Stay ahead of the MSM. We the American people have your back.
June 30, 2017,5:19 pm
I can understand he wants to smack these idiots that are attacking him personally. Just tell the people what your doing and what your trying to do for America. Let us smack these libtards down for you.
June 30, 2017,5:15 pm
He is a human before president. A person can only be badgered so much before speaking up. Liberals job is to break him and they are doing a good job. I would chance to say here that all who voted yes would have not lasted this long. I would prefer her didn’t tweet but as long as he His getting things done I don’t care and neither should their. I am sick of rep trashing their opportunity to do something.
June 30, 2017,5:14 pm
His staff should take away his smartphone and have him ignore the MSM and get to work. Otherwise, he should resign, get out of Washington, and let Pence get on with the job.
June 30, 2017,5:07 pm
President Trump should continue to tweet–unrestrained. We receive the true, unfiltered facts directly from the horse’s mouth. The media/press is so out-of-line that we cannot accept anything they say/print. Most of it is emotionally charged hatred for the “Greatest POTUS in U.S. history.” They cannot accept and understand that fact because they are unable see straight because “liberalism is a mental disorder” ~ per Dr. Michael Savage. President Trump should not bend to those who attempt to place shackles on him. They must not win this battle, as our country is in grave danger from what the Lib-Dems are attempting to do. Many weak-kneed RINOs and sound-bite Republicans are misguided by listening to and heeding the fake news from the media/press. I stand strongly behind our POTUS, who is methodically “draining the swamp” to bring back sanity to Washington, DC.
June 30, 2017,5:02 pm
He’s brilliant I don’t even tweet but he found a way to get over and around the mainstream media BS and having work there for 11 years trust me it is nothing more than BS
June 30, 2017,4:57 pm
Hell no ,Good for him, too many people have been humiliated and hurt by these two a– wipes. Talk back Mr . President. speak for all people who have been shit on and abused by those two! Go TRUMP ! Screw Sasse , Graham and Collins.
June 30, 2017,4:54 pm
Trump is his own worst enemy. His tweets are often far too petty and idiotic. He demeans the Presidency.
June 30, 2017,4:53 pm
I think tweeting is good because with the liberal media, it gives the President the opportunity to have his side of the story told. I think it has led to more investigations of the Democrats which has led to discovering their crimes. The one thing I would suggest to the President is that before he posts a tweet, he would run it by VP Pence for the okay. That way the good tweets would go thru and the ones that cause him trouble would not be posted. Please Mr. President, run them past VP Pence first!
June 30, 2017,4:52 pm
Please stop President Trump,these yokels are using them against you and what you and your people are trying to accomplish.Joe Scarborough is a real sh–heel,
just ask his other 2 wives and his children.I know as he is from my home town.
June 30, 2017,4:47 pm
They just hate it when you point out how stupid they are. Because they aren’t sure.
June 30, 2017,4:44 pm
Keep it up, Mr. President!!
June 30, 2017,4:35 pm
Trump need to keep his cool
June 30, 2017,4:31 pm
Learn how Antonin Scalia helped change America’s courts forever in our interview with his friend Bryan Garner, author of the new memoir “Nino and Me”!
“It’s the economy, stupid! Millions of American workers will be seeing the signs of America’s comeback in their paychecks in February. Very simply, your paychecks will be much bigger, because under our tax cuts you will be keeping more of your hard-earned money.”
