    I urge Congress to pass a law to stop Trump from ever tweeting again.

    Oh hail, the most powerful Tweeter-in-Chief has spoken. Seriously, this whole administration reminds me of an episode of Pinky and the Brain.

    What if we all just agreed that the verb is “to Twit.” He’d probably dry up pretty fast if news stories said “the president Twitted today...”

    No one should be impressed by either his number of followers or how many times he's been retweeted. I can say in all honesty many of his followers are there to simply monitor him. Also he retweeted his own tweets. I don't think he should be stopped just so we know what the heck he's doing. He's Cleary an insane spoiled rotten over indulged ignorant lazy bully and we need to keep an eye on him.

    I urge congress to pass a law to stop Trump. It's called impeachment. Granted, then we get that stuffed-shirt doctrinaire religionist Pence, but I'm not sure we can wait for Mueller's report - the so-called president will cause too much mayhem between now and then. He is dangerous far beyond his stupid tweets. His reign of domestic terror must be ended.

    Where’s the stat on how many times he tweeted out a lie, blatantly lied, fu*king lied and just plain out lied? Is there a number that can express the quantity? Also where’s the stat showing how many of his a**hole MAGA “followers” are Russian bots and paid trolls?

    His tweets are better than his bullshit statements because they are at least documented and readily accessible! He can’t lie his way out of tweets because they are in writing!

    Trumps conduct is beneath the office of the presidency is SO MANY WAYS, HOWEVER I can see why people voted for him. I hope the Dems come to their senses and get back to a moderate platform before they lose the seats they still retain in congress.

    Trump should have his Twitter account deleted. It’s disgraceful the insanity he tweets. He uses twitter as a bully pulpit. Disgusting. Trump has no morals.

    TWEETRING! by POTUS is nothing more than manifestation of his peculiar pathological personality traits. Consider book: The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump. See if you agree. 25th Amendment.

    I love that haters TWEET about Trump tweeting!! Liberals can’t handle that Trump doesn’t have to worry about puppet strings.... he can say what he wants about whatever he wants...if the news could be trusted to not only report the truth but report on the good as well as the bad, he wouldn’t have to tweet about what’s going on. Although I doubt that would stop him and, come on now people, don’t read them if it bothers you that much!! Get a GRIP!! I still thank God everyday HRC is not our president!! #MAGA

    Twitter was never available to the previous POTUS. At least we get to hear what he really thinks We may not like it all but at least it’s real news! Nobody gets to twist it with their own bs and we hear the truth about his thoughts. Not a tweeter myself by he does get his message out!
