Since when has a tweet become anything more than a passing thought?
Since he was elected president of the United States. A passing thought? Why is he still insisting it's true?



On the other hand, John McCain accused Rand Paul for working with Putin on the senate floor. Crickets.
Actually, no. There was quite a bit of noise, but then, he's not the president of the United States. Is he?

Why not? I see many people insisting the opposite.

No, John McCain is one of the people asking Trump to present evidence of his accusation.

Among a number of others, yes. Including the congressional committee headed by Nunes.

I'm not sure if Nunes accused someone else in the senate of treasonous activity without providing evidence, but if he did he'd be a hypocrite like McCain.

He didn't. But nor is McCain the topic.

Neither is Nunes and the congressional committee. There is no need to apologize for anything, especially a tweet, which to this days remains as inconsequential as the pixels it is made of.

Actually, since Nunes asked for evidence that Obama tapped Trump's phone (which claim morphed into, no it was the Brits), he is quite part of the topic.

Evidence to back up a tweet, to be clear. This outrage, these demands, this media frenzy, is about a tweet. Correct?

They are about an accusation made by the president of the United States. In his favored medium.
Part of his Presidential Record.

So a tweet. Right?

Yes.
The recorded accusation by our president.

Something could have typed while sitting on the toilet. I'm not sure the punishment fits the crime. Maybe his thumb hit the screen of his phone too many times. Life must be pretty good if this is the cause of outrage and indignation, I suppose. And here I was told we'd be dealing with Hitler by this time.

What punishment?
An expectation for personal responsibility from the president of the United States? The leader of the most powerful country on the planet?

Gosh.

I'm not sure in what reality a tweet is a bearing of personal responsibility, but then again, Trump's twitter is the new bastion of ethical consideration.

No. Statements from the president have been paid attention to for quite a while now.

All except the official ones, of course.

Perhaps a word or two. Maybe a sentence.

Actually, whole documents are looked at quite closely.

I've read them all I think, not to mention the press releases, speeches and interviews. Looking at them is one thing, but quote-mining them for stories is another.
