The President of the United States Tweeted what can easily be argued as the most childish and petty comment ever made by someone in the Oval Office in regards to a world leader. It’s the type of Tweet you see coming from junior high students.
It also happens to be his most popular Tweet in a long time.
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 12, 2017
This was definitely a zinger. It also represents an American President striking back in the least mature manner possible against a fellow petulant leader who may or may not have access to nuclear weapons. It’s something that would have been more appropriate coming from Baron Trump than his father. Even if we put aside foreign policy and how he just represented America to the rest of the world, what can’t be lost in the mix is how his followers reacted.
They loved it.
With nearly 500K likes and over 200K retweets when this article was written, the Tweet is one of his most viral Tweets. Why? Is there such a large chunk of America that simply doesn’t care about how he represents the nation? Do they want this to be spread as an example of the absolute immaturity he embodies in this Tweet?
Unfortunately, yes. Supporters and detractors alike love it when he makes himself seem like an unhinged child who had his feelings hurt like a bully. They want him to be passive-aggressive, defensive, and unencumbered by adult wisdom. It’s for different reasons, of course, but both sides of the fence appreciate laughing with or at President Trump and his Twitter escapades.
The popularity of this Tweet is a guarantee that he will stoop down to the level of amateur Twitter comedian with a grudge whenever the opportunity presents itself. That’s a problem, folks. We need the President to demonstrate maturity at the least and leadership in an ideal world. Lobbing Twitter zingers about a world leader’s appearance – even Kim Jong-un – is not going to make America great.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
