Did Somebody FINALLY Take Away Trump’s Twitter Privileges? It Kinda Looks That Way

Something odd is going on with Trump and Twitter. Since the beginning, Twitter has been a thorn in the side of the Trump campaign. The loudmouth blowhard has committed every social media faux pas imaginable. From his angry misogynistic tweets calling Megyn Kelly a “bimbo,” to his habit of retweeting white supremacists, Trump’s own Twitter account has been his worst enemy.

I have been saying for months that somebody in his campaign should change his password or hide his phone, and it is starting to look like somebody may have finally done just that.

In the past couple of days, the Trump campaign brought on a new communications adviser. Jason Miller has not only been hired by The Donald, but he actually has experience in communications. So he might even have some idea of what he’s doing, which is definitely a novelty in this particular circle.

Coincidentally, around the same time, Gawker noticed that Trump’s Twitter account, normally a constant stream of his incoherent ramblings, had gone strangely silent.

Over the past 30-ish hours, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas anti-abortion law, Liz Warren spent a solid 15 minutes burning Trump, and the GOP let Crooked Hillary get away with Benghazi once and for all. And throughout all of it, red-faced Twitter egg king Donald Trump hasn’t made a peep. Something’s not right.

On June 26, the day before, Donald Trump spewed out 15 total tweets. On the day before that, he sent out 10. As far as I can tell, Trump hasn’t missed a day of tweeting in at least the past two months—quite possibly more. To not tweet, especially when the day’s news contains nearly all his favorite things (Benghazi, the establishment behaving badly, Benghazi) is wildly out of character.

The last tweet before his posts abruptly stopped went up at 9:39 Monday morning. By Tuesday afternoon, Trump was once again sending out an occasional tweet, but something was different. To start with, Trump almost always tweets from a mobile device, but today’s tweets have all been sent from a browser, Even stranger still, the tweets actually made sense and were just very un-Trumplike in general.

On Sunday, Trump pumped out 15 tweets, and 10 on the day before that. Trump hasn’t missed a single day of tweeting for at least two months, maybe longer. But suddenly when he hires a communications director that maybe isn’t a total moron, his Twitter account goes silent before suddenly reappearing with coherent thoughts? Something fishy is going on. Did somebody secretly change his Twitter password? Did somebody hide his phone?

It’s hard not to see the plausibility of the scenario Gawker suggested:

So while @RealDonaldTrump may be back, the real Donald Trump is more likely in a room somewhere, tearing up golden couch cushions and screaming at aides to help him find his phone.

Meanwhile, his new communications adviser Jason Miller whistles casually in the corner. ‘You try calling it yet, Donald? Maybe you should try calling it.’
