With CNN reporters covering bong hits and New Orleans drunkenness only months after being offended by a man claiming to like boobs, I guess we are in the serious times that make it par for the course for the President of the United States to have a dick measuring contest on Twitter. You'll have to excuse the bluntness (no CNN puns intended), but that is precisely what the man did.
I can laugh at this. In the grand scheme of things, it is one of the more humorous tweets he has written. And contrary to many on the left, this tweet will not start a nuclear war. But you'll have to excuse my old fashioned views, I just think the President engaging in grade school taunts is beneath the dignity of the office. What's next? "I'm rubber, you're glue?" Or maybe he'll tell Kim Jong Un that his mama's so fat Dora couldn't explore her. For goodness sake, we're talking about the leader of a political party that got its knickers in wads because Barack Obama had his feet up on his own office desk. Now I can tell you exactly what the comments section will be here as people tut-tut me.
Beyond that, the President of the United States should not have to get in a dick measuring contest because he is the President of the United States. That he feels compelled to do so means he does not appreciate the Presidency of the United States. Everyone else already knows the President of the United States has the biggest on the world stage. That the man who inhabits the office feels the need to have to tweet it is a pretty damning indictment on him. It is ridiculously childish and unnecessary, even if it is also really funny to see. Yes Mr. President, you have a bigger, better, redder, firmer button than the tin pot little monster in North Korea. Good on you. You can put your pants back on the dignity of the office now.
At least this is in North Korea's direction instead of an ally's direction.
But before those of you reading this from the left get too smug, just remember Donald Trump is a lagging indicator of where our society is. We have supposedly serious reporters nodding along to a mentally challenged piece at Newsweek suggesting the President blocking people on Twitter is the equivalent of the Iranian despots blocking nationwide access to the internet. That is not a serious argument, but supposedly serious people believe it is. And meanwhile, at CNN, we've got a few drunks in a bar in New Orleans and one holding a joint in Colorado to celebrate the New Year. This is, you may be surprised to know, the straight news, seriously professional network where one is likely to find a pundit suggesting the President is not a good role model. And it essentially suspends real news for one day each year to celebrate the very hedonism that was the precursor to the rise of reality TV presidencies.
Come quickly Lord Jesus.
