Donald J. Trump‏
#@realDonaldTrump

Crazy Joe Scarborough and dumb as a rock Mika are not bad people, but their low rated show is dominated by their NBC bosses. Too bad!

NOTE...Trump is now going into abuse and bullying mode AGAIN .......AND his wife stated she wanted to work in the area of cyber bullying...maybe she needs to talk to Trump first....


BTW..their viewing numbers are actually high .......

Trump twitter account has added another 100,000 "Followers" in two days..a research check on those accounts INDICATE they are ALL non human bots...many belong to an identified bot army being paid for by someone with money to burn and they are under control from two servers..one located inside Russia the second one has not been identified as of yet...

WHY is this build up of non human bots important....?????

Trump is now claiming to be this master full user of social media and this strong increase of 1.2M "Followers" is being used as his proof....

Someone is paying big bucks to create and control this 1.2M bot network in order to provide "proof" that Trump is what he is claiming to be doing....

"Using social media" to go around MSM and or spamming MSM in his open war on the 1st Amendment...free speech and a free press....

BTW his twitter rants of today and the past days on MSM.....and journalists.......are an attempt to DEFLECT and DISTORT and DISTRACT from a ever increasing reporting on his Russian connections and those of his family and close associates...

Trump Twitter Wars Continue: New Attack on MSNBC for Firing Greta Van Susteren


Quote:
President Donald Trump has again lashed out at NBC, this time accusing the network of firing a conservative television personality he felt was more sympathetic to his views.

For the third day in a row, the president launched Twitter attacks Saturday against liberal news station MSNBC, calling out its parent companies NBC and Comcast for letting go former Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren after less than six months on air.Trump claimed he had heard reports that Susteren was fired for refusing what he believes is a concerted effort by the network to smear his image and discredit his presidency.
REMEMBER Trump really only listens to FOX News, Infowars, Breitbart.com and Drudge Reports..by his own statements....

OR to quote Trump......

‘I’m President and They’re Not’: Trump Attacks the Media

The fake media is trying to silence us....But we will not let them. Because the people know the truth. The fake media tried to stop us from going to the White House. But I’m president and they’re not.

I am posting this Trump twitter rant series as they are the most perfect form of Russian propaganda use of the Russian 6Ds of propaganda I have seen him tweet in the last weeks...

Russian propaganda uses the concept of setting a "narrative" in this case FAKE NEWS MSM and FRAUD NEWS MSM.....

It is commonly known that if the "narrative" is repeated often enough then even well educated individuals will start to actually "believe" that it is the "truth"......

WATCH Trump use his latest rallies...he is speaking to his base...NOT the entire US for which he is the President of in theory.....

It is that base he so urgently needs to hold together as the results of the coming Russian investigation and or collusion, obstruction, money laundering and cover up might in fact be actually all confirmed and for him to then fight those charges he needs his base voters to believe "his truth"....

WATCH the Trump use of the key words...FRAUD...FAKE....FAKE and FRAUDULENT...not Presidential.....ALL designed to condition his voters to merge their beliefs to those that he Trump is pushing....Trump is basically creating in his voters minds that ALL MSM lies and is FAKE news...

Russian Propaganda 6Ds Principle

Distract....Distort.....Deflect....Dismiss...ALL designed to create Doubt and Distrust.....

WHAT is Trump using from these Russian 6Ds...???

ALL of them....


Donald J. Trump‏
#@realDonaldTrump

My use of social media is not Presidential - it’s MODERN DAY PRESIDENTIAL. Make America Great Again!

Donald J. Trump‏
#@realDonaldTrump

I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!

Donald J. Trump‏
@realDonaldTrump

The FAKE & FRAUDULENT NEWS MEDIA is working hard to convince Republicans and others I should not use social media - but remember, I won....

....the 2016 election with interviews, speeches and social media. I had to beat #FakeNews, and did. We will continue to WIN!

In understanding Trump's addiction to social media especially Twitter and the need to hold his base of 30% supporters together....they basically really are a unified group of "junkies" if you read slowly this article by National Review a right wing media outlet which I rarely pay much attention to....

BUT with this article which surprises me greatly I totally support the NR on..

ACTUALLY I am rather amazed with the bluntness of the article and for calling a "spade a spade".....

http://www.nationalreview.com/articl...zezinski-tweet

Junkie Running Dry

Quote:
Of course Trump needs the media. Some people simply cannot handle the fact that Donald Trump was elected president.

One of those people is Donald Trump. Trump has shown himself intellectually and emotionally incapable of making the transition from minor entertainment figure to major political figure. He is in the strange position of being a B-list celebrity who is also the most famous man in the world.

His recent Twitter attack on Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s Morning Joe exemplifies that as much as it does the president’s other by-now-familiar pathologies, notably his strange psychological need to verbally abuse women in physical terms.

Trump may have his problems with women, but it is his unrequited love of the media that is undoing him. “I always tell the president, ‘You don’t need them,’” says Sean Hannity, the self-abasing monkey-butler of the Trump regime. The president, Hannity says, can reach more Americans via Twitter than he could through the conventional media. That isn’t true, of course: Only about one in five Americans uses Twitter. Hannity might be forgiven for not knowing this, a consequence of his much more general habit of not knowing things. But he actually does know the president.

How could he possibly believe that this man — this man — does not need them?

He needs them the way a junkie needs his junk.
NOTE......just a side comment...actually NR was sounding the alarm over the possible election of Trump OVER a year ago and warned what might happen if he was in fact elected for the GOP and the right wing in general as they felt that if Trump was elected and did poorly the GOP and right would take the hit for decades after Trump...

Former House intel staffer: The Trump-Russia probe is the 'successor to Watergate'

Actually a number of Trump associates under investigation were members of the Nixon "dirty tricks group" when they were far younger...strange they all of a sudden landed with Trump...

@realDonaldTrump It's really scary that someone with nuclear weapons is not adult enough to cope with being criticized on a time-wasting TV show.

This is an example of the automated Twitter bot trolls working in Germany and it is exactly the same way in US even using English...

Wow!
This really works.
An automated #Kremlin troll network reacts to certain terms on @twitter with propaganda replies.

BUT the Russian AI is not working as well as they planned it would..as there have been some examples of automated bots replying to an automated bot....

One of the major blogsites that Trump gets his information from is the Alex Jones run "Infowars".....BTW Jones during a divorce hearing when asked if his profession is a "journalist"...stated no he was not a journalist but rather a "performance artist".....

WELL one of the FAKE stories he has been pushing lately is....

Is NASA Hiding Children on Mars.....seriously.....

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.3cf453d43668

SO WHILE Trump bashes MSM as being FAKE and FRADULENT THEN he watches reports such as this?????

Make sense to anyone.....

Bill Clinton eloquent on Europe, Germany, Kohl, the West. Reminder of what US presidents used to sound like.

Well worth listening to when we see exactly how Trump acts today as a US President...how in this speech Clinton uses the words of "tear down"....NOTICE Clinton spoke complete sentences...Trump cannot...

Such campaigns are regular, just open the timeline of any bot and you will see all their previous campaigns

It's just one of the hundred of automated bot pools currently working Twitter as well as FB....

There is an increasing number now supporting Trump and the US alt right ie white nationalists...
