For so many reasons, what is the fucking point of responding to any Unhinged Trump tweet thread?

My pledge today is never to do so ever again, until we can publicly unravel the entire criminal enterprise, starting in January. So I say in the meantime that unravelling these shit stained balls of Twitter yarn is more than pointless...just leaving behind energy wasted, and hands shit stained, until the next ball is tossed out.


That is all.

that thousands of people respond to his tweets, leave comments?

He most definitely never pays attention to the responses!

"Hi Mr. Trump! I need about $15,000 month but I really don’t want to do anything. If I promise to stop tweeting about what a douchebag I think you are, could you Venmo me the money?

Or should I just ask Lara?"

And, no response - what's the point? Exactly!

Let his brain dead base be the audience...the only audience for the hate speech.

A silent Trump tweet OP with no comments at all on DU? My dream.

No Trump tweet OP's at all? My fantasy.

..because I am assuming this is all going to be archived and 100 yrs from now someone will see my name and realize that I was one of the good guys...and my descendants will be proud of my part in TheResistance.

Thinks I'll have the Secret Service knocking on our door within a week. I have to agree with her.

His every tweet is repeated everywhere, other social media, radio, TV, print, and click sites,

He of course loves fomenting the outrage and distraction

I think it's a form of mind control really. I'm not even on twitter and am sick of his tweets
