CNBC Shill Publishes Story Calling For Trump to Delete His Twitter Account

Jacob Pramuk seems to make a living by second guessing just about every single thing President elect Trump does. His Twitter account is littered with anti-Trump gibberish. As an employee of CNBC, the home of the hardest Hillary shiller of all time — John Harwood — Jacob is right at home, very comfy, writing shit about Trump.

jacob

In an article out today, he cites a rigged poll calling for Trump to delete his Twitter account. The main stream media are livid over Trump’s use of Twitter, specifically because it renders them and their filtration systems of propaganda worthless.

shill

Most American voters think Donald Trump should delete his account.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday showed 64 percent of voters surveyed think Trump should not keep a personal Twitter account while in the White House. Only 32 percent of those polled said he should maintain his personal account.

Trump used the social media platform frequently during his campaign and continues to do so after his presidential election victory, attacking rivals, highlighting media coverage he views as negative and weighing in on foreign and economic policy. While Trump’s team sees Twitter as a way to directly get its message to voters, critics have slammed his penchant for late-night tweets and 140-character responses to delicate issues, like U.S. relations with China and Russia.

Republican voters narrowly said Trump should keep his account by a 49 percent to 45 percent margin. Only 18 percent of Democrats said he should maintain his personal account, while 80 percent said he should not. Independents said he should scrap his account by a 65 percent to 31 percent margin.

Considering how wrong the biased polls were this past election, predicting a landslide victory for Hillary Clinton, I put very little credence into the polls put forth by Quinnipiac. But even if that was the consensus opinion, who the fuck are we to tell Trump what to do with his Twitter account? If he’s more comfortable talking to the people directly, instead of through the shills at the NY Times, so be it.

Just like the fake news theme that was pressed hard by the main stream media, going into and after the elections, their new play is to pressure Trump to give up his Twitter account. Politico quizzed the half-dead former Sec of State, Madeline Albright, who probably doesn’t know how to use a teevee remote, about Trump’s twitter usage and this is what she had to say.

“I’m going to try to be polite,” Albright said, asked about the president-elect’s propensity to tweet policy pronouncements on a U.S. Institute of Peace conference panel. “Let me just say that I am very concerned about the tweets and generally about the messages that are going out.”

Concern trolling at its best.

According to Google Trends, search terms for ‘Trump delete Twitter account” is on the rise.

trump

Supply side media propaganda.

Conservative leaning website, Lifezette, takes the other side of the argument.

Trump cut out the middleman, and the middleman is livid. Thanks to technology, Trump doesn’t need their ink or their audience — he has his own. That’s why his tweeting has long been the mainstream media’s rhapsodic parrot-gripe. Do a Google news search for “Trump should stop tweeting;” the results are endless. Pick a Trump tweet, scroll through the comments and see how many people are saying “Delete Your Account.” Lots.

But President Trump will never stop tweeting. Why would he? He can change the news cycle in 30 seconds with just his iPhone. He can say whatever he wants, whenever he wants, and the whole world hears it. He has the biggest megaphone in the history of the world at his disposal. Asking Trump to stop tweeting is like asking Tom Brady to show up to the NFL playoffs wearing handcuffs or asking Michael Phelps to cinch an anchor to his waist before diving into the pool. The liberal logic being, “You keep winning. What you’re doing is very effective. Please stop.”

Here’s another poll to consider: America’s trust for the media sinks to new lows.

media

Instead of correcting their haggard ways in reporting news, the main stream media has sought out to control the dissemination of news through filtration systems, discouraging direct dialogue with the American people and impugning the integrity of independent media by calling them ‘fake news.’

Hitherto, their schemes have failed. Thus, their credibility continues to spiral lower.

As a side note, I just ran a Twitter poll asking if Trump should delete his account and the results were almost the exact opposite of what Quinnipiac produced.

    Trump will have plenty of time for Tweets when he’s a private citizen again.. shortly. Report that Russians have compromising personal and financial info about him and that his surrogates were observed meeting with Russian intelligence officers before the election. Info comes from British intelligence official with deep ties to Russian spies.

    Piss off the intelligence community and that’s what happens.

      Everyone only loves a good conspiracy around here, when it is a conspiracy that makes liberals into the Anti-Christ. When the conspiracy reflects badly on the Orange One, they are not into it at all.

      Conspiracy theories are just one of many liberal bashing activities. Liberal bashing is the main activity here. Liberal bashing is a habit that Right Wing “news” media has trained people in for decades now.

            I don’t engage in such fodder, and if I do it’s extremely rare.
            It’s an exercise in futility, though wildly entertaining.

            I do, however, love watching you lace your posts w/ the word “insult” as if it’s going to make anyone in these halls rethink their words, actions, thoughts or feelings in the future. It’s has a elementary school teacher feel to it….

            By all means, carry on.

          I read Torah everyday and even I enjoy your spot on interpretation of modern day American “Christianity”

          I read the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus sounds like a nice guy. Definitely a communist though.

          How the conservatives manage to convince themselves they are like him is mind boggling. How evangelicals think Trump can even believe in God, let alone follow commandments or care for those beneath him is mind boggling as well.

          True cognitive dissonance.

          St. Eric,

          Frog and Joshua have every reason to believe the Bible is nonsense because of what you people did with the teachings of the Jews. For every decent Christian there are 1000 retarded ones who want to nuke cities full of children, and another 1000 who think Jews want to take over the world.

          If *anyone* has been trying to take over the world…

          Your avatar says it all.

          imbeciles. I’m starting to think the Romans started the church to make sure people stopped believing in our God. And you are just the dumb descendants of the people who bought the BS story about being “free from sin”

          Ronald Reagan is in heaven but Abraham Joshua Heschel is in hell because he didnt believe in your BS. How can anyone graduate high school and believe that nonsense.

          Why would anyone want anything to do with God with you violent judgmental hypocrite morons as his representatives?

          It says a lot about how cultured you are to imagine that all Jews look a certain way.

          There are Jews in Latin America. There was an inquisition. Many people “converted” to get access to the new world.

          Pretending to be violently gay in a room full of homophobes is hilarious. Apparently it means I’m secretly a homo who is mad he can’t come out of the closet.

          Who knew. Don’t tell my fiance.

          Or your wife.

        The Kochs are Right Winged and this is a Right Wing site. So the Kochs are like Putin. That is, they can do no wrong, in the eyes of Right Wing Trump supporters.

    I wonder if she would say the same thing if Trump was a woman? I doubt it. Sexist bitch!

      I like to imagine you live in a poor people state with a bunch of abandoned factories and warehouses, a few miles from a growing tech start-up area full of people in my generation who wear funny glasses and girl’s pants but somehow manage to have your daughter stay over at their place 3 nights out of the week.

      Every once in a while you take a drive in the cherokee, (also named ironbird) with Beau and Larry past the old tire factory where you use to work and wonder what type of fertilizer they use on server farms.

    We’ll have President Pence soon enough, and everything will be Right Wing establishment Republicans. The GOP establishment will find some way to get rid of Trump, and then Pence will do their bidding. The anti-establishment vote will end up empowering the GOP establishment completely. It will be like the return of GW Bush’s reign.

    Peaches, you really need to stop talking about how superior your Jewish religion is to the wacky Christian Evangelicals. Your religion is nothing special. The real Judaism died around the time of Jesus. Rabbinic Judaism is a farce. It has nothing to do with what the real religion was back then.

    Go and study your Talmud bs. It was all created by the rabbis who were desperate to come up with something to do after the second Temple was destroyed.

    Sorry, but that’s not real Judaism. You need to be a Karaite in order to be a real Jew.

      I’m 27. I’m not a hardliner. I;m not a Talmudic scholar. You have no idea what I believe in. You could have asked… but assuming is easier. It’s ok I do the same thing all the time. We all do.

      That said, I agree with everything you just said. Almost.

      I think ALL the books were written by people. I think all organized religion is nonsense. You are spot on about the Talmud. Does not mean it’s useless drivel. Some of it is awesome. Some is sad. Its silly to think it is based on secrets nobody decided to write down until after the second temple period.

      As far as Judaism dying… by that argument it was always dead. People were being shitty Jews in the desert with Moses. There was never any established religion everyone followed. Just like today… most people are not serious about this. Judaism is what Jews do. Karate masters do Karate. Ballerinas do ballet. There are more than one way of doing it. Even if one group says only theirs is the right way.

      I’m not going to argue with history and archaeology and linguistics… The Torah was most likely written by men long after Moses. Moses probably said a lot of that stuff though, but probably not all of it. That does not mean it isn’t a book whose commandments are based on eternal truths that make you a better person… commandments most Christians think are irrelevant. Nor does it change the fact that Jewish scriptures say the entire world will worship our God… which came true. 54% of the population on the planet worships the God of Abraham Issac and Jacob in some way or another. When it was written Jews were a tribe and there were way, way more popular gods that NOBODY believes in any more. They said it would happen almost 3000 years ago and it did. I find that coincidence alone to be enough to justify my faith.

      I think the concept of being free from sin because of something someone else did a long time ago, when they never said they would do that for you… is insane. I think you have no incentive to be a good person if you think you are “Saved” I also think it is crazy to say that only people who believe this insane concept will go to heaven and anyone else, regardless of what type of person they are… is going to hell.

      And I don’t think anyone on earth is qualified to determine what makes a “real” Jew.

    Dr. Fly, Please advise of a (barely) legal whaling company (extra harpoon) to invest in. Perhaps said company can be invited to your blog to identify the lard butt liberals that prance about (which is all of them) and harvest them for blubber. It’s a win-win win. The whaling company wins with a mother lode, we win from a fantastic investment and wide load liberals win by feeling the sense of accomplishment of actually doing something useful.
