Trump is so deranged that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly does not all the people working in the White House to read the President’s tweets.
“Someone, I read the other day, said we all just react to the tweets,” said Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, speaking with a group of reporters after a presidential news conference Sunday in Vietnam. “We don’t. I don’t. I don’t allow the staff to. We know what we’re doing.
“Believe it or not, I do not follow the tweets,” Kelly said.
“I find out about them,” he continued. “But for our purposes, my purpose, is we make sure the president is briefed up on what he’s about to do.”
Trump shows his ignorance daily on his Twitter account. The chief of staff should be reading his tweets because then they would know if anything they are telling Trump is sinking in. If Kelly did instruct the White House staff not to read Trump’s tweets, it means that this president is an impotent figurehead who doesn’t know what is going on as his administration is functioning around him.
This is not a good look because either Trump is an old fool who everyone has been told to ignore, or the White House is completely out of step with the man who is supposed to be running the Executive Branch of the federal government. Never has a White House been this willfully disconnected from its own president.
The White House ignores the rantings of the President on Twitter, which demonstrates that America has become a rudderless ship under Donald Trump.
