I've reported him to Twitter, although I expect a few million have done the same.

Violation of term of service.

Why is he different?

He's not different, F;  he's...special.

Seriously, it would be good if Twitter eliminated some of his tweets.

Trump's a Twit to Tweet on Twitter.

Tis scary that a reasonable gesture of peaceful protest should be condemned as unpatriotic. It's the stuff of a totalitarian regime, not of a democracy.

Not to mention that it proves Trump isn't conversant with the US Constitution. Or sanity.

When Trump was elected, I was derided for saying that it echoed the feelings I had in response to my parents concerns over the Cuban missile crisis. I actually think that it is possibly worse than then.

Now, the deranged Roy Moore has joined the asylum and AfD are gaining prominence. 

Just when you think that it cannot get any worse....

Perhaps the only thing Trump is conversant in is getting his own way as a privileged, powerful (and I think suspect) businessman. I believe he is a self serving  narcissist with a fragile ego and do not believe he is fit for any public office, let alone that of POTUS.

On the other hand, a sizeable portion of the US (many of whom probably consider Breitbart to offer the unbiased “real news”) seem to see him as an unfairly maligned type of hero...

He's getting worse, he's even found time to go back and delete all his tweets where he endorsed a senator who was defeated in the Alabama election last night.
He's pretending it never happened!

Unbelievable and atrocious hypocrisy.

Also wilfully ignorant and dangerously uninformed.
Quote
The campaign for independence by the people of Catalonia from the Spanish state goes back many generations. It has always been peaceful. It has always been non-violent.
That's simply untrue. Terra Lliure, sometimes referred to as TLL, was an armed Catalan nationalist terrorist separatist organisation. Formed in 1978, the group carried out dozens of attacks that left many people injured and one person dead. But then - I suppose an ex-terrorist might have different concepts of 'peaceful' from most of humanity.

I've worked out how to tell when Trump is lying. His lips move.

Did anyone else watch Channel 4's 'Dispatches' last night? If I was worried before, I'm now officially termed 'scared'.
