Donald Trump Evil or Idiotic?
Our president Donald Trump has many reasons for people to have animosity towards him. He uses his power for bad and not the good and also uses social media, and press conferences as an outlet to mock and criticize people and countries left and right. One social media outlet he has used is Twitter, a website where you can express your feelings freely without it being a formal way of addressing any situations. He also uses formal press conferences to divulge personal information about his colleagues, former presidents, and former candidates for the presidential election. With all these outlets, it is causing him to make rash decisions that can be serious decisions. Although trump has innumerable reasons that people

It is designed to be able to express your feelings without getting a lot of mean comments back.

Trump wrote on twitter “The greatest influence over our election was the Fake News Media "screaming" for Crooked Hillary Clinton. Next, she was a bad candidate” (Twitter, 22 Sept. 2017)! A question that comes to mind is that, why is Hillary Clinton Crooked? Why does President Trump feel the need to go on Twitter to basically bully other politicians? Yes, she may have hidden some emails from the government in the past but that doesn’t mean she is a dishonest human being. Another post Donald Trump put out there was that “Two dozen NFL players continue to kneel during the National Anthem, showing total disrespect to our Flag & Country. No leadership in NFL” (Twitter, 23 Oct. 2017)! First of all, he has way bigger problems to worry about than irrelevant people kneeling for the national anthem. There have been many sources to reveal that they aren’t disrespecting the flag. They are in fact kneeling for loved ones who cannot stand during the flag, they are kneeling for the ones whose lives have been lost and so many more reasons. They don’t disrespect our country they just in fact support our country as much as the guys standing next to …show more content…
President Donald Trump uses press conferences to unmask everything about everyone. With this it is causing people to hate on him even more. Furthermore, the president focused more on what the NFL was doing regarding the players kneeling for the national anthem than what was currently happening in Las Vegas Nevada.

Trump has also has defended his friend Robert Kraft, Owner of the New England Patriots, as he made a decision to join the other teams and to kneel during the national anthem.

    He talks about how most people do not really know what net neutrality is, and he enforces this thought with the fact that Donald Trump, our current president, tweeted, “Obama’s attack on the internet is another top down power grab. Net neutrality is the Fairness Doctrine. Will target conservative media.” Oliver explains that this tweet shows that Trump’s understanding of net neutrality is the complete opposite of what it actually means. By showing this tweet, Oliver is using logos to make his audience realize that if their president does not know what net neutrality is, he definitely will not be doing anything to safeguard it. This helps them think that they need to take it into their own hands if they want the internet to stay unchanged.…

    The authors’ found that these tweets were both argued against and argued for amongst viewers of the NFL, players, and politicians. After explaining and examining the comments about the protest, the authors’ use of logos appears to draw logic from the commentators instead of from themselves, and they appeared to almost have a political bias with those advocating for the support of the protest. In one tweet by the current president, he approves of “standing with locked arms” but proclaims that “kneeling is not acceptable” (Hoffman). The authors explain that President Trump sees support for the anthem as acceptable and protests against the anthem as a sin. Their use of pathos, while examining the tweet, appeals to all readers and makes an attempt to try and explain why the president would post something like this on social media.…

    Another, example about how Trump has shifted the paradigm of political rhetoric and especially dramatism is the idea of endorsements from various respected senators and governors.

If Hilary Clinton had a negative editorial written on her, her campaign for the president of the United States would be over. Trump though, is not one of those normal politicians who have been in Washington for years, Trump goes to his rallies and holds up that newspaper and rips it to shreds in front of his energized supporters.…

    Many Trump supporters would argue that political cartoons such as Bryan’s should be considered slander because they can have a damaging effect to the president’s reputation. However, Trump’s tweets from his personal Twitter damage his reputation just more than a political cartoon ever could. In one incident on February 22, 2018, Trump discusses what certain news stations have been reporting by saying, “I never said “give teachers guns” like was stated on Fake News @CNN & @NBC. What I said was to look at the possibility of giving ‘concealed guns to gun adept teachers with military or special training experience - only the best. 20% of teachers, a lot, would now be able to,” (Trump).…

    To the widely known immature comments on illegal immigrants and the way he handles Univision own, Jorge Ramos when he threw him out for asking hard questions on immigration. Although, this wasn’t the first time Trump has made the media swirl over comments like these, it is certainly not the last.
