WATCH: “This obsession with covering everything he says on Twitter and very little what he does as president…” -@KellyannePolls pic.twitter.com/iyS3WnHoxh— TODAY (@TODAYshow) June 5, 2017
The single line is enough: what Trump says on Twitter is not what he does as President. When the President belches, it's a Presidential belch. Anything the President does is, by definition, done "as President."
The wheels have come off Kellyanne's bus.
Not surprising why, actually:
People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
Which directly contradicts the arguments of his DOJ in court, but adds to the comments the court can consider in reviewing the executive order.
The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
Well, you could have told them to, you know....
The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court - & seek much tougher version!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
And just this morning comes the report that Trump wants to replace Priebus as Chief of Staff, but nobody else wants the job. Gee, wonder why?
Kellyanne has been forced to defend the indefensible, and even she can't do it anymore. This is what an Administration looks like when the person in charge is completely incapable of carrying out the duties of President.*
That 25th Amendment remedy is moving its way to the front of the crowd.
*Turns out it's not just Kellyanne:
Gorka then went on to say that he’d rather talk about President Trump’s policies, but Cuomo insisted that the tweets were about the policies.
“I think you need to understand the policy,” Gorka said, maintaining that Trump’s tweets weren’t policy.
“I think that you need to have a little understanding here,” Cuomo said.
“This is about national security,” Gorka said, claiming that people are too obsessed with Trump’s tweets and not the policies. As a fact check, Trump’s tweets were about his policies.
Later in a panel discussion, former Ambassador to Russia, Thomas Pickering noted “what the president says means is U.S. policy” and as such, it matters.
“Or it doesn’t! If you listen to his staff some days,” host Alyson Camerota said.
