I'll be on vacation all next week.

@jonathanchait That can’t be right. You once said liberals should hope for Trump to win the nomination!

.@sunraysunray: Trump is extremely vulnerable to his base. A few smart campaigns & he'd be as popular as Steyer. @jonathanchait has the means to at least help with those. Either he lacks the will or the smarts, which do you think it is?

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@willmenaker: both you & @jonathanchait have access to Cortes/Jennings/etc. Here's how you or Chait could easily undercut Trump to his base. Will you be first? If you won't do this plan, then list what you've done that has been more effective. https://imgur.com/a/Uwxdk62

@jonathanchait I certainly would welcome it. No doubt an effective attack against Trump (insofar as anything can be).
24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
.@J_Leap: the effective way to undercut Trump is to call his proxies on the huge flaws in his plans. I pointed out in 2015 how the wall would fail. Trump would be a footnote if @jonathanchait had done that. He has access to Trump proxies, he just lacks smarts & patriotism.

Looking forward to a general election campaign of each candidate accusing the other of being socialist https://t.co/4L5Br87qLZ

@jonathanchait That's the exact right tack. Trump does it. Turn his fear mongering back on himself and dilute it's meaning.

From @24aheaddotcom_
What's #TheResistance record on holding Trump accountable, 0 for 9865 or something? Given that, would it be wise to do as you suggest? MT @PastaFazoool ..Trump does it. Turn his fear mongering back on himself and dilute it's meaning..

Bernie Sanders is an extremely, perhaps uniquely, risky nominee, writes @jonathanchait https://t.co/TJIfrwEhZD

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@Curious_Chak: it's much, much worse. Nothing @intelligencer has ever blogged has impacted Trump in any way. They're more impotent than a Nevada boxing commissioner.

24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
.@RealBenisons: way back in 2015 I accurately predicted how Trump's signature issues would fail (see my Trump page). If @jonathanchait had pushed my arguments, Trump would be a footnote. Instead, Chait just impotently whines for a tiny echo chamber, never impacting Trump.

@jonathanchait I hope the above ends up being just as wrong as this: https://t.co/oAj3Rl0xfn
24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
.@mohomran: smart, easy-to-devise (at least for me) arguments would have stopped Trump any time in the last 4+ years; he's extremely vulnerable to MAGA. Even if @jonathanchait were smart enough to understand that, he wouldn't help with it.

24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
.@twistopherrobin: 1. NPR constantly deceives re immigration (examples on request). 2. @jonathanchait hypes NPRKelly's WITWICS Battle with Pompeo. Trump's base - the key to Trump - doesn't care. 3. Chait has never even tried to present an argument that'd undercut Trump to MAGA.

.@merlisa on a wider note, review what impact @jonathanchait has had on Trump. Has any of his clickbait had any impact on Trump whatsoever? Work your way through this description of how to finally undercut Trump: https://twitter.com/24AheadDotCom_/status/1216926254869417984

@jonathanchait What was he doing on the field? I’ve never seen this type of presidential display.
24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
.@JenniferHPhD: Trump played kneeball (& some real football aka soccer) in prep school. It seems odd that Trump - after playing kneeball - would show no interest once in college as @jonathanchait claims. I still kick things real football-style years later. Odd claim, no?

24AheadDotCom_'s avatar
From @24aheaddotcom_
.@4edges: Trump going after CNN - & @jonathanchait whining about it - *helps* Trump with his current/future base. Meanwhile, Chait is too dim & too fake to speak directly to MAGA & explain how Trump's signature issue would fail. That'd really undercut Trump but Chait is too weak
