THREAD: #TrumpTwitterReview
(of tweets posted 5.18.20)

Monday was another day of chaos on Trump’s Twitter, which incidentally passed 80M (still 37M behind Obama).

A total of 38 items were tweeted. In this thread I will provide a breakdown of the key themes.

(1/12) #Trump

Trump’s tweeting started at 8.22am & ended at 10.55pm.

85% of tweets featured “new” content.

New Content
- Original tweets: 16
- RTs with comments: 9
- RTs w/o comments: 7

Rehashed Content (previously tweeted)
- RTs of own content: 2
- RTs of other content: 4

Trump uses others to amplify his key points of attack & to shame critics. Monday’s cast:

- Mark Levin (anti-Obama)
- Bill Mitchell (pro-HCQ)
- Wayne Allyn Root (pro-HCQ)
- The Curve is Bent Time to Free Us (pro-HCQ)
- Protest video from Suffolk County (again)

The 3 biggest targets for attack on Monday were Obama, Neil Cavuto (Fox) & WHO.

Trump shared a 1 hour long video series (4 parts) in which Trump Protector & Obama Hater, Mark Levin, rehashed the entire “Obamagate” scandal & what that is allegedly about.
5. Neil Cavuto was next up, with 5 tweets made slamming his reporting of the dangers of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ):

“foolish, gullible, what an asshole” – via RTs.

The anti-Cavuto hit job followed Trump’s likely FALSE claim made Monday that he has been taking HCQ for 2 weeks.
6. Trump also shared a letter (clearly not written by him) attacking the World Health Organization & blaming it & China for the COVID19 pandemic.

Trump takes no responsibility for his admin’s failure to successfully respond to the pandemic early on, once it arrived in the USA.
7. Others attacked on Monday included:

- Mitt Romney: “loser”
- Ilhan Omar: “corrupt disaster” (rehashed)
- Kaitlin Collins: “CNN Faker” (rehashed)
- Wall Street Journal Editorial
- 60 Minutes: “hit job”
- HHS Whistleblower (Dr. Rick Bright): “he leaked””
- Joe Biden

Wouldn’t be Trump Twitter if these were dropped from the playbook! Today’s mentions:

- Loser
- Fake News
- Fake News Media
- Sleepy Joe
- Transition to Greatness
- Reopen Our Country
- HHS Whistleblower
- Great American Patriot
- Never Trumper

Trump shared (again) a video of “Boaties for Trump”, a video of MAGA supporters in CA & plugged a book for Pete Hegseth.

He also lamented how he misses the “great Roger Ailes” being at FOX (resigned after multiple sexual harassment allegations against him).

22 of 38 of Trump’s tweets on Monday featured retweeted content, some of it rehashed from Sunday.

One of the RTs which most stood out was that of @hoarsewisperer, notably because he is a major Trump critic. Trump RT-ing those who despise him is embarrassing!

It was another bonkers day on Trump’s Twitter. A key theme was the reckless promotion of HCQ as a treatment for COVID19 which coincided with Trump’s announcement that he is allegedly taking the medication. It all seems like a “revenge” plot against Dr. Bright.
12. Monday’s FAKE CHAOS on Trump’s Twitter aimed to obscure various REAL STORIES:

1) Pompeo scandal re firing of State Dept IG
2) Unlikelihood of criminal action against Obama/Biden
3) DOJ moving to drop charges against Russians
4) Pandemic death toll nearing 100,000
