Trump Tells His 11.9 Million Followers to ‘Check Out’ Machado Sex Tape in Early A.M. Tweetstorm

maxresdefaultBefore most Americans in this country were even awake this morning, Republican nominee Donald Trump eschewed any hopes for a controlled candidacy by firing off a series of angry Tweets between 3:20 a.m. EST and 5:30 a.m. EST.

Sometime in the hours after his campaign stop in Bedford, New Hampshire, the serial Tweeter could not help himself, and apparently Kellyanne Conway was unsuccessful in wrestling the phone away from her boss. He began his assault against the media, slamming unverified “sources” that may speak out against him.

Right, “there are no sources,” the same way there are no people when Trump touts the nebulous phrase “Many people are saying.” He then turns his attention two hours later onto former Miss Universe Alicia Machado and the controversy that has brewed since she was invoked by Hillary Clinton on Monday night’s debate stage.

And here’s the kicker for the morning, folks. Following in the footsteps of conservative icons like Jack Kemp and Ronald Reagen, Trump sounded off to his 11.9 million Twitter followers to “check out” Alicia Machado’s sex tape because she’s “disgusting.”

This, from the man who is actively closing the gap on the United States Presidency. Happy Friday, everyone!
