Twitter and treason- #DJT praises dictator

Reluctantly, giving Donald Trump one nod of intuitiveness, he certainly understands the power of "Twitter". On the other hand, he never learned the power of the science of physics. "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction". (Newton's Third Law)

Sir Isaac Newton - "for every action there is a reaction" (especially in Twitter language)

When Donald Trump usese the enormous "megaphone-microphone" of Twitter, he causes a volcanic reaction to every word he posts on the micro-blogging site. In fact, the volcanic ash he unleashes is akin to "toxic language waste"- or, in Twitter toungue it's #TLW.

Now,  @realDonaldTrump has a new "best friend" or #BF, being Russia's former KGB agent turned dictator, Vladimir Putin. In response, the Twitter posts in #TLW, posted in reaction to their international love fest, has been the accusation of "treason". I guess in an international diplomatic twitter equation, the action and reaction would look like this:  #Trump + #Putin / #TLW = Treason.

TS DOWN OVER “TREASON” AFTER TRUMP PRAISES PUTIN- The president-elect called Putin, whose government was just censured by the Obama administration for acts of cyber-war, “very smart.”- by Maya Kosoff
Donald Trump found himself in a precarious position Thursday after President Barack Obama imposed additional sanctions on Russia for its alleged efforts to interfere with the U.S. election, and in an even more awkward spot when Russian president Vladimir Putin responded Friday by refraining from any reciprocal retaliatory action—apparently awaiting friendlier relations with the incoming administration. But instead of standing with the current U.S. president, Trump decided to use his platform to praise the former K.G.B. official, who is believed to have personally orchestrated multiple acts of cyber-warfare against the country Trump will soon lead.

On Friday afternoon, Trump did two things in response to Putin’s decision not to retaliate against U.S. diplomats in Russia. 

First, he tweeted a response celebrating the intelligence of the Russian president. “Great move on delay (by V. Putin) - I always knew he was very smart!,” the future leader of the free world wrote to his 18 million followers

Second, after tweeting his pro-Kremlin missive, Trump pinned the tweet to his profile, ensuring it is the first thing seen by anyone viewing his account. It appears to be the first time Trump has ever used the feature. (This is unacceptable! It looks like an American dictator praising an undemocratic tyrant!)

Third-party candidate Evan McMullin, who has been vocal in his opposition of Trump, tweeted his displeasure. 

"To be clear, @realDonaldTrump is siding with America's greatest adversary even as it attacks our democracy. Never grow desensitized to this." …

During the campaign, Trump repeatedly vowed to improve relations with Russia, and since the election has dismissed allegations that the former Soviet nation was responsible for hacking the Democratic National Committee or the Clinton campaign. On Thursday, in the wake of Obama’s retaliatory measures against Russia, Trump issued a short, terse statement without ever saying the name of the country in question. “It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things,” he said. 
(Excuse me @realDonaldTrump but our patriotic nation spends trillions monitoring the adversarial situation with Russia with good reasons- Russia is a nuclear power that has expressed intentions of world domination!- OMG, where is the ghost of Ronald Reagan?)

That has put Trump in a difficult position with the G.O.P., which has historically been aligned against Russia, but has recently found itself having to defend Trump’s perplexing compulsion to praise Putin at every turn. As some on Twitter noted, Trump’s most recent burst of affection for the Russian autocrat is not likely to make things easier for his Republican allies on Capitol Hill, who are already faced with the unenviable task of confirming Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State, ExxonMobil C.E.O. Rex Tillerson, who has extensive business ties to Russia and a close personal relationship with Putin.

Obviously, Donald Trump has no understanding of how former KGB operatives are trained in cunning diplomacy. Vladimir Putin has coopted our national election and, in so doing, created a leader with treasonous leanings for the United States of America. #Trump_must_go ! Trumpis is clearly unqualified to lead.
