SINCE FRIDAY NIGHT, the president of the United States has tweeted five times about the U.S. Women’s Open at a golf club that bears his name.
-- TWEETS THIS MORNING: at 6:35 a.m.: “Hillary Clinton can illegally get the questions to the Debate & delete 33,000 emails but my son Don is being scorned by the Fake News Media?” … at 6:51 a.m.: “Thank you to all of the supporters, who far out-numbered the protesters, yesterday at the Women’s U.S. Open. Very cool!” … at 7:04 a.m.: “Thank you to former campaign adviser Michael Caputo for saying so powerfully that there was no Russian collusion in our winning campaign.” … at 7:15 a.m.: “With all of its phony unnamed sources & highly slanted & even fraudulent reporting, #Fake News is DISTORTING DEMOCRACY in our country!” … at 10:10 a.m.: “The ABC/Washington Post Poll, even though almost 40% is not bad at this time, was just about the most inaccurate poll around election time!”
ALSO: How is a 36 percent approval rating “not bad at this time?”
WHAT THE PRESIDENT DOESN’T WANT TO READ -- “Poll finds Trump’s standing weakened since springtime,” by WaPo’s Scott Clement and Dan Balz: “Approaching six months in office, Trump’s overall approval rating has dropped to 36 percent from 42 percent in April. His disapproval rating has risen five points to 58 percent. Overall, 48 percent say they ‘disapprove strongly’ of Trump’s performance in office, a level never reached by former presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and reached only in the second term of George W. Bush in Post-ABC polling.” http://wapo.st/2tX7lXd
THINGS THE PRESIDENT HAS NOT TWEETED ABOUT IN THE LAST FEW DAYS: Wishing John McCain well after he announced he’d have surgery for a blood clot in his eye. Urging senators to raise the debt ceiling or pass the health care bill. Urging House Republicans to pass the air-traffic control overhaul bill, which is in big trouble.
