I had an interesting thought the other day.
There is almost no difference between a tweet from John Scalzi and a tweet from Donald Trump. The only difference is that Scalzi’s have better grammar. But the intent? Identical.
Wow, more than 90% of Fake News Media coverage of me is negative, with numerous forced retractions of untrue stories. Hence my use of Social Media, the only way to get the truth out. Much of Mainstream Meadia has become a joke! @foxandfriends

Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!

Folks, if you roll up with "both sides are equally bad" these days, I'm gonna know you're a fucking idiot whose understanding of political issues is about as deep as a single baked potato crisp. I literally have no time for you, Pringle pal.

After several minutes trying to find a polite way to say to a random person who tweeted me that their tweet was the stupidest thing I read in a while and that was saying something in 2017, and failing, I simply muted that person so I will never have to see their stupid again.

It’s like that Family Guy episode where it turned out that Rush Limbaugh and Michael Moore were really both characters played by Fred Savage.
