President Trump Says He’ll Live Tweet During the Democrat Debates


President Donald Trump looks ready to upstage the two upcoming Democrat debates by live tweeting during their moment in the spotlights.

An absurd twenty Democrats are preparing to meet on succeeding nights, ten on June 26 and the next ten on the following night.

But this gaggle of leftists may find their spotlight hogged by the Tweeter in chief.

Trump is apparently “tentatively planning to live-tweet the debates on June 26-27, according to people familiar with the planning.”

According to the Wall Street Journal:

Mr. Trump, even from a remove, always promised to be the most important figure at the debate. Regardless of the specific debate questions, many Democratic voters will be listening for how each candidate plans to take down Mr. Trump.

Interacting in real time on Twitter would make Mr. Trump’s presence more tangible by directly inserting himself into the political conversation unfolding on stage. His posts could provide instant responses as well as insights into which attacks he feels most acutely.

Still, it seems that Trump has not committed fully to the idea. The paper added, “political advisers warned that planning for debate night remains fluid, and that Mr. Trump can change his mind.”

The two debates of ten candidates each are going to be a bit of a joke. It is doubtful that with that many on stage any particular candidate will be able to break out of the pack.

Here are the candidates appearing over the two nights.

June 26

  • Cory Booker, senator from New Jersey
  • Julián Castro, former housing secretary
  • Bill de Blasio, mayor of New York
  • John Delaney, former representative from Maryland
  • Tulsi Gabbard, representative from Hawaii
  • Jay Inslee, governor of Washington
  • Amy Klobuchar, senator from Minnesota
  • Beto O’Rourke, former representative from Texas
  • Tim Ryan, representative from Ohio
  • Elizabeth Warren, senator from Massachusetts

June 27

  • Michael Bennet, senator from Colorado
  • Joseph R. Biden Jr., former vice president
  • Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Ind.
  • Kirsten Gillibrand, senator from New York
  • Kamala Harris, senator from California
  • John Hickenlooper, former governor of Colorado
  • Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont
  • Eric Swalwell, representative from California
  • Marianne Williamson, self-help author
  • Andrew Yang, former tech executive

Many of these “candidates” are under three percent in recent polling and a few are actually at zero.

Speaking of zeros… the so-called moderators of these two biased extravaganzas will be NBC anchors Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie and Chuck Todd, Telemundo anchor José Díaz-Balart, and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. I’m sure they will be tough on the Dems.

Sure they will.
