Trump Outrageously Plays Favorites In Latest Tweet

This is outrageous:

The president of the United States shouldn’t play favorites. This tweet should have mentioned that Neiman Marcus also dropped Ivanka’s line. Belk, Jet, ShopStyle, and Home Shopping Network too.

I’m also a little confused by Trump’s syntax. What exactly is it that’s “terrible”? The fact that Nordstrom dropped Ivanka’s line? Or the fact that Ivanka is always pestering him to do the right thing? Maybe both, I suppose. Trump is a recognized master at packing a lot of innuendo into 140 characters, after all.

And finally, I have some bad news for Trump: his tweets seem to be losing effectiveness. He needs to up his game.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?
