President Trump made a return to Twitter on Monday morning to take aim at one of his favorite targets: the so called “fake” media. Trump did not tweet on Sunday, and has mostly refrained from inflammatory tweets since he claimed a week ago that the former President, Barack Obama, had been wire-tapping him. President Trump wrote his Monday message in a bid to stand up for himself and his administration, The tweet read: “It is amazing how rude much of the media is to me and my very hard working representatives. Be nice, you will do much better!”
It is still unclear what specific incident Trump was referring to in his tweet; however, at least one recent episode could have driven his thumbs into action. While defending Trump’s wiretapping allegations, Kellyanne Conway made the comment, “you can surveil someone through their phones, certainly through their television sets.. any number of ways.” Then she added that intelligence on someone could be gathered with “microwaves that turn into cameras. We know this is a fact of modern life.”
That “microwave to camera” line drew a fast backlash Monday morning from “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski, which Trump is known to be a daily viewer of the show. “This is Kellyanne Conway talking about microwaves,” Brzezinski said, “and I think doing something extremely destructive and using everything she can to sort of boost her own power within this White House, which seems to have a demented twist to at least one side of that we all need to look at really seriously.” The “Morning Joe” talk show had actually banned Conway from appearing on the show after they proved some of her information as inaccurate. The bottom line, from The President’s thumbs to the media, is to be nice.
