President-elect Donald Trump may have said his Twitter presence helped him win over the American people and win the presidential election, but one woman in particular isn’t buying it and wishes he’d stop.
Following Trump's weekend ritual of criticizing Saturday Night Live and Alec Baldwin for his “sad” impersonation of him, one woman responded in a long-winded rant, blasting Trump for giving his attention to unimportant issues.
While Trump’s Twitter rants have often incited all types of emotions of anger and annoyance, his latest commentary in particular, caused Danielle Muscato to unleash a 33-tweet response that went viral. The SNL skit that prompted Trump’s criticism and Muscato’s war on words occurred last night, in which Alec Baldwin hilariously commented on Trump’s incessant need to tweet about his every move and decision, even in a moment of crisis or secrecy. In her argument, Muscato, who states that she is a trans woman and social activist in her bio, scolded Trump for engaging in such nonsense, telling him that he should “pick your fucking battles.”
She also suggested that the future world leader focus on protecting and serving the millions of Americans around the country. “Anything better to do than tweet abt a comedy show. You know that actual lives are at stake, right? You're pathetic,” she tweeted. “This is not a joke, Donald. Don't you have anything better to do? Are you so narcissistic that a PARODY is your priority?”
And just in case Trump didn’t know what issues to give his attention to first, Muscato gave him a couple of options. “Do you know how many trans people were murdered since Election Day? Do you know how many veterans killed themselves,” she asked, adding points about the thousands of starving children around the country.
As she continued her lengthy rant, Muscato also accused him of being too “scared and overwhelmed,” claiming his Twitter rants were a way of diverting people’s attention from his inability to lead. “You think we're all too polite, too aghast, to call you out. I see through you, Donny. I'm calling you out. You're a joke,” she continued. “That's why you surround yourself with gold, and beautiful women that you objectify. You know you're a loser, so you try to make yourself feel better, feel successful, authoritative, with things, and money. You are an impostor. You are a fraud.”
Towards the end of her scathing commentary, she called upon all progressives, Democrats, Independents, and Republicans to come together in order to “resist” Trump’s fascist hypocrisy. “We CANNOT wait and see. @realDonaldTrump is telling us, here and now, what he is going to do. BELIEVE HIM,” she tweeted.
Trump doesn’t seem to be making plans to give up Twitter any time soon. And Alec Baldwin admitted earlier today that he would only retire his impersonations if Trump release his tax returns. It isn’t likely that he’ll being doing that either, so with that being said, Muscato says she’s ready “fight you every step, so be ready. You can't stop progress, no matter how hard you try.”
