White House staff wants to vet Trump’s tweets —good luck with that
President Donald Trump’s tweets cause crises so often we’re all just like, “Oh hey, there goes Donny T again, haha,” as some company he doesn’t like takes a stock hit or he suggests that maybe he records people who come to the Oval Office. The White House knows this is a problem. Next week, some staffers are going to try to put a stop to it.
The world wishes them the best of luck.
The Trump administration is reportedly considering a host of operational changes that may take effect soon after the president gets back from his first overseas jaunt. One of those is reportedly having his tweets vetted by a team of lawyers.
Trump’s staff has wanted to stop him from tweeting pretty much since he’s had a campaign, and they haven’t had any luck. Now that the intensity of the investigation into the Trump campaign and his administration’s potential connections with the Russian government has intensified, some staff members hope he’ll agree to wait a second before he sends his thoughts into the great internet beyond.
This, though, is one of those things I will believe when I see.
