Trump’s Twitter Account Is Becoming Crazier

President Trump's Twitter feed looks like that of a bigoted, senior citizen conspiracy theorist who is into QAnon and has watched way too much Fox News.

Donald Trump has had an infamously unhinged Twitter feed throughout his presidency. Trump has tweeted a video of him body-slamming CNN, shared a video of him putting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball, retweeted bigots, and shared conspiracy theories. But in recent weeks, Trump’s tweets and retweets have been increasingly wild, and they’ve been met with a reduced level of outrage from a desensitized media.

On Saturday, after pedophile Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in prison, President Trump shared a dangerous conspiracy theory accusing former President Bill Clinton of murdering Epstein.

President Trump defended the fact he retweeted the conspiracy theory by saying:

“That was a retweet. That was from him, it wasn’t from me. But he’s a man who has half a million followers. A lot of followers, and he’s respected … so I think I was fine.”

President Trump hasn’t let the amount of Twitter followers someone has determine whether he retweets them in the past. Trump has retweeted accounts associated with the QAnon conspiracy theory on many occasions, even after the FBI has deemed them a domestic terrorism threat.

President Trump has been retweeting far-right figures like Dinesh D’souza, James O’Keefe, and racist British commentator Katie Hopkins as well.

It was only last month that President Trump sent his tweets targeting “the Squad,” telling them to go back to their countries in spite of the fact they are sitting congresswomen. Just a few weekends ago, President Trump sent his bigoted “infested” tweets targeting House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) and Baltimore.

And of course, if you look on Trump’s timeline, you’ll see your regularly scheduled programming of fear-mongering, disinformation, and attacks on the media and Democrats.

This all occurs due to the circle of idiocy that the President is a part of. Fox News isn’t just radicalizing Trump’s base, it radicalizes Trump himself. Trump also radicalizes his base while driving Fox News coverage, which then drives Trump’s radicalizing actions, and so on and so forth.

This is why President Trump signed an executive order trying to get the FCC to exert more control over social media companies and to ensure conservatives don’t get banned for hate speech.
