Trump, a 70-year-old man born with a golden toilet in his crib, continues using Twitter to divert attention from his failure as leader.
When you spend your entire adult life running a private company like a dictatorship, governing a democracy is a big adjustment. In Trump’s case, it’s one he doesn’t seem to be able to make. Consequently, each twitter storm marks yet another attempt to divert attention away from a failing administration.
45’s reaction to his failed Obamacare repeal shouldn’t come as a surprise, if you’re among those who believe that a 70-year-old man, born with a golden toilet in his crib, will never learn to behave like anything but a spoiled brat.
Perhaps the problem is that Trump can’t fire people that don’t work for him; namely members of congress who are elected by voters. So he resorts to Twitter to hurl insults and threats at the people who won’t bow to his will.
But the House Freedom Caucus is not afraid of the overbearing man-child in the Oval Office, and they know how Washington works better than the current occupant of the White House.

Trump’s tweets against members of the Freedom Caucus are just another sign of a failing administration, desperately lashing out like a child who can’t get his way.
The real estate agent who came to Washington to ‘drain the swamp’ is drowning in raw sewage, and the world is still figuring out if it should laugh in his face, ignore his ridiculous tweets, or both.
Democracy is not perfect, but it is proving to be stronger than the incoherent temper tantrums and twitter storms of 45.
