I'm actually surprised he's exposed to information at all.
 
2017-09-01 11:20:10 PM  
I don't think anyone in the country is going to be surprised by this at all.  Trump's unhinged rants reflect an alternate reality that only exists inside the fevered imaginations of the demented loonies who run fox news.

 trump's starting to fall apart tho, not even fox news can help keep him in office anymore.  NOBODY believes trump is doing a good job.  not even the trumpers.  they still defend him but....its more of a reflexive thing now and not any real effort or thought going into it.
 
2017-09-01 11:28:32 PM  
that Mr. Trump plaintively asked a friend recently where The Daily Caller and Breitbart were.

Christ man. Brietfart I could expect because of Bannon, but Daily Caller?! Have you no decency or respect?

Who am I kidding. It's Trump. He has no decency or respect.

I still manage to be stunned he doesn't have a browser on his phone and doesn't use a laptop even after all the ridiculous shiatty things I know about him.

John Oliver already outed this weeks ago
Fox & Friends know Trump is watching them: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

They've moved onto defending the Nazis and KKK's rights to carry tiki torches to defend themselves against the ultra-violent lefties

I get the feeling tho, at least at my local level, that the trumpers decided to not even try and defend trump's actions anymore.  they just chant MAGA and change the subject.  'whataboutism' is the first and ONLY thing they're doing now.

That's something I just don't believe. He twits all the time. I'm supposed to believe he is behind a desktop every time he does? Even Cofefefve?

I thought I read somewhere that he was given a custom mobile device that is stripped down to where he can only use it to Tweet.
 
2017-09-02 01:22:15 AM  
We know he gets other stuff from his Twitter mirror feed.  But its almost all Fox News orbit like Daily Caller etc.

Plus some Hollywood, golf, and gossip feeds.

The fact that several people in his orbit have his password and have never snuck a balanced news source or two into his feed is proof to me that none of those shiftless bums are actually "moderate influences."

Weaning him off the crazy is Kelly's Job 1 and should be for Ivanka and Jared and the rest...unless they are just like him in reality.  Hmmm.
 
2017-09-02 01:25:28 AM  
They are giving his attention span too much credit.
 
2017-09-02 01:35:33 AM  
That was obvious back in 2011. Nothing's changed since.
 
2017-09-02 01:54:58 AM  
I thought he had moved to crazier outlets. Fox still has a finernail's grasp on reality.
 
2017-09-02 01:56:06 AM  
Weird. I figured he'd be a huge Maddow fan.

fusillade762: Weird. I figured he'd be a huge Maddow fan.


I've started to wonder recently if trump's white house staff has started to just block out nightly news channels from the president.  trump becomes weirdly unhinged when it comes to anyone disagreeing with him, or saying things about him that he doesn't like.
 
2017-09-02 02:02:52 AM  
And yet they're still trailing MSNBC in viewership.


Huh.
 
2017-09-02 02:05:18 AM  
Wait. So how does he retweet all those despicable deplorable very fine people all the time?
 
2017-09-02 03:43:48 AM  
The president of the United States should not be getting his information primarily from television, period.  But him watching Fox News means he's getting everything from his own demented fan club.

I guess all the intelligence agencies are to be ignored, when they're not being attacked.

the GOP put a whiny, arrogant, petty, vain, spiteful, vindictive, stupid man child in charge of the country.  unless they admit they've done f*cked up and work to fix the mess they helped create, we're stuck with what we've got.

So, a Twitterbug?

Subby, I think you mean "source of affirmation" because Fox News doesn't supply information.

Yeah, studies have shown that people who watch Fox News know less than people who watch NOTHING.

If Congress doesn't step up soon we're doomed.

It'll be interesting when Fox eventually, inevitably turns on him.

You mean Sinclair hasn't turned its DC cable "news" channel no one watches into a two-way walkie talkie to Trump yet?
 
2017-09-02 04:37:31 AM  
This also explains his sudden (by friends and associates accounts) racism. Fox (all right wing media really) must be expert at coded language that makes people more racist. trump isn't the first to get turned this way.

The DailyBeast had an article
about Kelly trying to control how the IdiotKing gets his info. It is kinda strange, almost as if they intentionally provoke him.

He's always been racist. He still believes the Central Park Five are guilty. Show him a young man with brown skin and he sees thugga thug.

I wonder what it would take to simply deactivate the cable at the White House. Keep Trump from watching TV for a few days.....

/He'd just go to one of his resorts.
//God I hate this reality.

Well at least he doesn't have to get a newspaper to find out what's going on the way Obama said he did.

Reading sounds so much less presidential. I like presidents that don't have to read.

You moronic orange turd, put down the remote and actually pay attention to your intelligence briefings. It's the bare goddamned minimum of your job.

F**k!

You can expose him to all the information in the world but getting him to make informed decisions is an entirely different matter, altogether.

/an entirely different matter
 
2017-09-02 07:55:29 AM  
Well duh. I always would want to be president just for the access to the information you get from intelligence agencies. But guess that is too complicated for D2S. If/when Bannon news gets up his rants will probably get worse.

The irony, of course, being that Arnold in real life is one of the more sane republicans around.
