Yup. He’s still at it.
Donald Trump apparently receives 100% of his news media directly through word of mouth from his hired sycophants within The Trump Organization.
In spite of his “major announcement” at the end of October, his post-election Twitter tantrum, and the many subsequent celebrity feuds he has started with anyone who commented on either his announcement or tantrum, all being panned by virtually every corner of the media, Trump insisted that he has since been well-received.
“I’ve been well-received,” Trump says. “I will have way over 2 million Twitter followers shortly.”
As was said in the previous article covering his one-sided feud with Brian Williams, Donald Trump apparently is unable to comprehend any measure in life except for how much attention someone is getting, without even the ability to differentiate between positive or negative attention.
That millions of people are following him on Twitter so they can watch him implode firsthand, the last thing this should be taken as being is an indication that Trump’s opinions are popular. If anything, it means the opposite.
“The fact is that there’s a large group of people who like Donald Trump and what Donald Trump says,” said Trump. “I have no regrets.”
Trump’s recent behavior also inspired a petition on SignOn.org asking Macy’s to end their deal with Trump as a part of their “Magic of Macy’s.”
The petition objects, not only to the otherwise crass and hateful Trump appearing in what are otherwise Christmas commercials, but of Trump allegedly abusing the platform to promote far-right political agendas, including climate change denial.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Trump declared “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”
By the way, the Donald J. Trump signature collection is made in China.
When first reported earlier today by BusinessWeek, the petition had roughly fifteen hundred signatures. As of the publication of this article, the petition has since accumulated thirteen thousand signatures.
Trump, however, expressed confidence that Macy’s would not terminate its contract, because “We’re one of the hottest brands at Macy’s.”
“One of the reasons it’s so hot is that they’re great ties.” And the other is because “There is a large group of people who believe in what I say. The fact is the response [at Macy’s] will be the opposite.”
As a reminder, the CEO of Chik-Fil-A thought the same thing.
