We’re living in an absurdist comedy. After getting booted from Twitter, President Trump tried, unsuccessfully, to tweet out his incendiary message from various other accounts. It truly was quite a spectacle to watch the leader of the free world, and the most powerful man on the planet, running around from Twitter account to Twitter account. One can’t help but wonder why he didn’t just make an address to the nation from the Oval Office, since every news outlet in the country would feel obligated to tune in. Instead, he decided to continue making a fool of himself, offering up the nation he leads to further ridicule and mockery.
If anyone was wondering whether Trump would manage to salvage any dignity from his embarrassment of a presidency, this incident should make it clear that the answer is, and always has been, no.
