If Trump’s latest tweet in the wake of the swearing in of his new Chief of Staff is any indication, it’s time for Trump to start a chapter of Tweeters Anonymous.
I think Trump needs to start or join a chapter of Tweeters Anonymous. He seriously has a problem. The guy can’t stop tweeting. It isn’t only that, it is what he tweets. Really. What person in power tweets policy before speaking with their staff? Only a moron would do that. Well…
Now there is a new sheriff in town, I mean General, as in General Kelly, Trump’s new Chief of Staff. After a crazy week of resignations, forced resignations, and whatever, former General John Kelly took over. He’s the new Chief of Staff.
Kelly demands respect. He wants to run the show the way it should be run. Most people, I am sure, were hoping now that there is a grown-up in the White House, Tweety McFly would calm down and act like a good boy. After all, he did go to military school. (You did know that Trump’s father sent him to military school because of his out of control rebellious nature.)
The day after Kelly was sworn in, Trump made sure that everyone knew he has no intention to stop tweeting. Of course, he posted it on Twitter:
Only the Fake News Media and Trump enemies want me to stop using Social Media (110 million people). Only way for me to get the truth out!

USA Today agrees, writing:
Trump’s latest missive appears to be a response to commentators who wonder if the new White House chief of staff, John Kelly, would seek to curb the president’s Twitter use as a way to help impose order on the governing process.
Here’s to hoping that Trump gets well soon, or at least quits putting his tweets out there for the world to see.
I’ll leave you with a few observations regarding Trump made by conservative columnist Peggy Noonan in her weekly column for The Wall Street Journal.
“The president’s primary problem as a leader is not that he is impetuous, brash or naive,” Noonan wrote. “It’s not that he is inexperienced, crude, an outsider. It is that he is weak and sniveling. It is that he undermines himself almost daily by ignoring traditional norms and forms of American masculinity.”
Referring to his tweets, she writes that they demonstrate “utter weakness.” “It’s all whimpering accusation and finger-pointing: ‘Nobody’s nice to me. Why don’t they appreciate me?’”
