It’s Pretty Easy To Predict What Trump Will Tweet About Next – Here’s How

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

Yesterday we allowed the guys over at The Daily Show to have a little fun with trying to pin down what Donald Trump’s greatest ever tweet was, and we threw in a couple of our own guesses for good measure (HERE).

Today it’s something of a more serious approach to figuring out what the Trumpster is going to bang out, because the team at CNN (or FAKE NEWS, depending on who you ask) have done an in-depth analysis of what drives Donald to tweet.

You see, there happens to be a remarkable correlation between what a certain US cable news channel broadcasts and the president’s Twitter account.

A few examples:

Squawk Box, 6:52 AM – MSNBC, March 8

CNBC aired an interview shortly before 7 a.m. with LinkedIn executive editor Dan Roth, who detailed a report that measures monthly employment trends based on statistics from the site. Roth said the current pace of hiring is the strongest since the summer of 2015. Nearly 20 minutes later, Trump tweeted the same data point from the study.

19 minutes later:

Hang on, he watches MSNBC? Sure, but there’s one channel that seems to really push his buttons:

Fox & Friends, 8:08 AM – 7 March

Trump responded to a Fox & Friends’ interview with Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham, who lamented that the GOP’s Obamacare replacement bill didn’t improve competition across state lines. “Don’t worry,” Trump tweeted, seemingly at Ingraham, “getting rid of state lines, which will promote competition, will be in phase 2 & 3 of healthcare rollout.”

33 minutes later:

You get the drift, so I’ll leave out Trump’s tweets below.

Fox & Friends, 8:03 AM – 7 March

Trump tweeted that Russia “ran over” Obama, who he called “weak.” Only ten minutes before that tweet, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade said that Russia “ran right over” Obama for eight years. Trump once again tagged Fox & Friends in the tweet.

Fox & Friends, 6:13 AM – 7 March

Shortly after Fox & Friends flashed a graphic claiming that 122 former detainees at Guantanamo had “re-engaged in terrorism,” Trump tweeted out the same figure, wrongly pinning the blame on former President Obama for the recidivism. Trump’s tweet, which came about a half-hour after Fox promoted the graphic on Twitter, ignored that 113 out of the 122 detainees who re-engaged in terrorism were actually released by former President George W. Bush — not Obama.

Fox & Friends Sunday, 6:26 AM – 5 March

Reporting from a pro-Trump rally, a Fox News correspondent asked one supporter, “Who was it who said, ‘Tell Vladimir that after the election I’ll have more flexibility?’” The correspondent was talking about a comment President Obama made in March 2012, talking to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and referring to a U.S.-led NATO missile defense system, that was picked up on a hot mic. It appeared in a Trump tweet less than 15 minutes after it aired on Fox News.

The list goes on, and on, and on, but there are a few things that are really alarming.

Aren’t there better ways to spend a morning, and your time, than tweeting out unverified information from a news network? When you look at the factual inaccuracies that plague Trump’s account, so many of them can easily be traced back to something he saw on TV and quoted out of context.

When you consider the access to information resources that the President of the United States enjoys, including having the likes of the CIA and FBI on speed dial, shouldn’t he wean himself off Fox and start relying on information provided by those in the know?

And why, oh why, can’t he just realise that he has won? It’s over. Hillary has been vanquished. Obama no longer lives in the White House.

Stop the whining, stop the blaming of other people, and get on with the job. Every president inherits a unique set of problems, and then they get around to fixing them like they promised their voters they would.

The rallying cry goes that everyone should give Trump a chance to be president. Great, but behaving like a nine-year-old who had his toys taken away does no one any good.

Get fixing, stop tweeting.
