"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Fair and Balanced

The interesting thing here:  who does he think he's talking to?

The audience for Trump's tweets is not yours truly (who mines them for comedy and cognitive dissonance).  The audience for Trump's tweets would never consider buying a book (probably) about their beloved icon that was written by two reporters for the Washington Post (certainly).

And the audience for that book will never read Trump's Twitter feed, and certainly wouldn't take advice from the man if they saw this tweet elsewhere (like, here, for instance).

So what is the point of this tweet, other than petulance and egomania?  I mean, seriously:  people are worried about donations to a charity run by the Clintons when this clown wants to be President and represents the other major political party in the country?
