Finally, a Way to Stomach Trump’s Tweets

New Bot Turns Them Into Official White House Statements

I quit following @POTUS on Twitter when the account became Trump’s, and quit @realDonaldTrump at the same time. I didn’t want to see tweets from 45, or award him one more follower.

But a new bot, which turns Trump’s tweets into the official White House press statements that they actually are, is making me reconsider allowing messages from the current office holder.

And still no one has been offered for FBI director.
And still no one has been nominated for FBI director.

Trump doesn’t seem to get that his tweets signal our allies and enemies, send markets soaring or falling, and — much as I hate to admit — matter.

Trump's tweet, aka official White House statement, implies that the mayor of London, born into a Sunni Muslim Pakistani family in South London, doesn't take terrorism seriously.

Maybe if Trump himself followed @RealPressSecBot, he’d understand that he is president now and he can’t keep indulging every thought that floats through his head. To continue to do so risks our country’s standing in the world. Not to mention, it’s just plain embarrassing.

But as @JakeTapper tweeted: Fact Check: MSM eat up his tweets like Skittles. It's WH advisers, lawyers and Trump supporters who want him to stop tweeting.
