The God-Emperor tweets himself bodyslamming Fake News CNN.
He added insult to injury by tweeting it under the hashtag #FraudNewsCNN #FNN. Needless to say, the media has gone absolutely apeshit, unable to believe that a sitting president would hammer them back rather than simply enduring the abuse in dignified silence.
As it happens, I’ve been reading Jomini recently, which tends to make it pretty clear what the God-Emperor is doing here.
The general should do every thing to electrify his own soldiers, and to empart to them the same enthusiasm which he endeavors to repress in his adversaries.
If Twitter provides us with any sound basis for judgment, Trump’s supporters are electrified and his detractors are horrified. Mission accomplished.
