A modern president and his tweet stuff

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Why wouldn’t you want a president in the age of social media to methodically share what he’s trying to accomplish so that those people who really won’t understand it can think they understand it. Mr. Trump took the idea and ran with it, not always to unanimous applause.

President Trump might have been just your ordinary boring president, busy with the ordinary crises that can be counted on to bedevil any president. But he got lucky.
