History will have the last word about Donald Trump on Twitter

"I have offended God and mankind because my work did not reach the quality it should have."- famous last words: Leonardo da Vinci quote

(@realdonaldtrump does not understand the damage done by his tweets- or does he?)
@realdonaldtrump: Appears to disregard the caustic spirit of his 140 character "tweets"; but history will have the last word to interpret the intentions of every one of them.
Okay! I promise to NOT write a top 10 list of anything relating to Donald Trump. Nevertheless, as his uncontrolled Tweets continue to accumulate, spewing out of his @realdonaldtrump handle, it's now been upheld by the US 9th District Federal Court that these messages are official directives.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense to consider how @realdonaldtrump will be engraved in history, while he stumbles, fumbles, lies and accuses people, during his many Twitter tirades.

In other words, for mysterious reasons known only unto himself, @realdonaldtrump obviously wants to be recorded in history as the author of his own universe, defined by his "tweets".  

Fortunately, historians have the the last word about the @realdonaldtrump documented 140 character social media missives.  

Although each of the @realdonaldtrump tweets stands alone in their caustic tones, the summary of them, in the aggregate, relates to some of the worst prose ever recorded by any leader. 

Regardless of what type of organization a person is involved in, the leadership always attempts to put the best light on the associations' comings and goings on.  Not so with @realdonaldtrump! In fact, on Twitter, he's like the reinvention of Nero fiddling while Rome burns, totally oblivious to the damage inflicted to his legacy and to those who will be embarrassed to defend their associations with him, after he is out of office.

Therefore, rather than write about DonaldTrump's irresponsible "tweets", I've decided to give @realdonaldtrump a lesson on how history has graded others with regard to their most memorable quotes.  In other words, if "tweets" had existed when these notables were quoted, how would they be judged in today's social media archives? These examples are the social media equivalent of "tweets" by the authors.

For example, the documented last sentence on the "Last Will and Testament" issued and witnessed, as directed by Adolf Hitler, on April 29, 1945 (this is sickeningly akin to "Hitler's last words":

Above all I charge the leaders of the nation and those under them to scrupulous observance of the laws of race and to merciless opposition to the universal poisoner of all peoples, International Jewry.”

Beatles, John Lennon: Shortly before he died was interviewed for a US magazine. He was quoted: “Christianity will end, it will disappear. I do not have to argue about that. I am certain Jesus was O.K., but his subjects were too simple. Today we (the Beatles) are more famous than Jesus.” Lennon died on Dec 8/1980 from gunshot wounds.

Thomas Andrews, the builder of the infamous "Titanic": After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked how safe the Titanic would be. With an ironic tone he said: "Not even God can sink it."

Titanic set sail from America to Europe on April 10, 1912. An unprecedented tragedy occurred after four days sailing in the Atlantic Ocean. The ship hit a large iceberg on April 14-15, and sank to the bottom of the ocean, killing 1517 passengers with only 706 survivors. Andrews died on the ship.

In other words, beware of the tone of @realdonaldtrump tweets because, inevitably, they will be recorded in the archives of world famous quotes, to be judged by eternity. 

Many have warned @realdonaldtrump about the damage his "tweets" rants will (and already have) been responsible for causing; but he obviously disregards the cacophony of advice.  

In fact, the @realdonaldtrump "tweets" have the impact of being like "dog whistles" to the his zealous followers. In other words, they seem on inspire those who hear their caustic message, while the remainder of us are appalled by their divisiveness and the immaturity they demonstrate about @realdonaldtrump.

I hope @realdonaldtrump can learn something from this blog.
