You may not like the current president, but face it, he has invented a new sub-genre for the written word: the Twump-tweet.
It has its own literary structure, which was analyzed and identified over a year ago: usually three sentences or phrases, sometimes only two, the twump-tweet features a statement of (dubious) fact, a terse explanation, then a one or two word ejaculation of judgment.
Slate gives it a run: http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2016/02/donald_trump_is_the_best_at_twitter_here_s_why.html
Moreover, a simple Google search will turn up dozens of templates where you can compose your own fake twump-tweet.
Here are some actual twump-tweets:
I could go on, but you get the idea. Frankly, I can stomach only so much scrolling through Trump's twitter feed.
However, 'a door once opened can be walked through in both directions.'
It's time to out-tweet the Trumpster. Let's get busy. We could go for parody:
- Meeting with Putin at the G20 to deliver the mortgage payment on my properties. Relief!
- Gates et al. say robot workers will be ready in 24 months. No need for actual humans, no need for health care. Tax relief for billionaires.
- Fake news says I bragged about sexual assault. Oops, that was real news.
But the direct approach will be more effective:
- Afghan schoolgirls' robotics team denied entry to US for world competition. Why does this insecure Prez fear them? Sad.
- Minion-coconspirator Devos hires Wall Street exec to manage student loan portfolio. Manage? Rather, collect through any means possible. Criminal.
- Devos rips Title 1 funds away from schools to line the pockets of her billionaire friends. Corruption extraordinaire.
- Trump lashes out at media, conducts feud. Hatfield and McCoys weren't this bad. Pathetic.
- Bush 43 sought to restore honor to the office. Obama upheld same. But now? Pig trough.
You get the idea. Let's get trending. :)
Postscript: the twump-tweet. I am rolling the r into a w a la Baba Wawa, the brilliant Gilda Radner impression we watched in the 70s on Saturday Night. Trust me, the alliteration works.
