Trump’s crooked tie is a synecdoche for his presidency. https://t.co/AsAZv50qVS

@jonathanchait I love the word synecdoche as much as any in the English language. But that's twice in less than a m… https://t.co/DUjXl24O7e

.@OrrChris: hey Chris, if someone has a platform & can't undercut a dim, buffoonish charlatan like Trump, what does that say about them? If they were competent, couldn't they undercut the charlatan instead of constantly helping him? Let's ask you & @jonathanchait.

Don’t like to RT Chait, but he nailed this one. https://t.co/uLPoTVuyZO

.@RobertaSaidThat: @jonathanchait could have easily helped stop Trump. Ready-made arguments show to MAGA how bogus Trump's plans are. All Chait had to do was use his mini-megaphone to get someone to press Trump or his proxies on it. Despite lots of trying, Chait refused to help.

@jonathanchait @billscher Superb piece Thanks to you for researching and writing it No thanks to Schultz! #NoSchultz

.@HelloAndrew: I've been posting for 3+ years about Trump being pro-amnesty & wall/bans being unimplementable. Those would have really undercut him to his base & made him lose. Did @jonathanchait or @billscher do the same? Did they ever even try to undercut Trump to his base?

.@sivavaid @AnandWrites: @jonathanchait could have impacted Trump if he were capable of figuring out how to do it & were willing. Eg, pointing out *to Trump fans* that future Congresses would just tear down Trump's "wall". Ask his fans why he's never done that.

Why Trump keeps giving Mick Mulvaney more jobs https://t.co/pJtN7dAq7A
Sat, Dec 15, 2018 at 7:18 pm
@jonathanchait Because Trump is a “terrible human being”?
Sat, Dec 15, 2018 at 9:20 pm
.@johnnydioso: Mick Mulvaney & Trump are extremely vulnerable because both are big amnesty fans. @jonathanchait can't even conceive of using Trump's most vulnerable issue to undercut Trump to his base. Instead, he just tries to entertain in a small echo chamber.

.@libbycwatson: few care about unionizing hacks. @jonathanchait is incredibly vulnerable because he hasn't even tried to impact Trump. Whining in echo chambers doesn't count. Chait could have urged people to ask Trump & his proxies tough policy questions but refuses.

He finally got one thing right. MT @Bre_payton .@jonathanchait says GOP needs to burn in a fire. Nothing will get fixed until “Everyone associated with this party is gone.” Calls for “Biblical Sodom and Gomorrah level of destruction”

.@wildwestpie: it always should have been incredibly easy for @jonathanchait to undercut Trump. Trump has repeatedly promoted *amnesty* & #MAGA hates amnesty. All Chait needed to do was constantly point that out & challenge Trump proxies on it. Instead, Chait has had zero impact

.@GayLabourYorkie @kthalps: #Dilbert helped make Trump viable. @jonathanchait could've done easy (for me at least) things to stop that like pointing out *to likely Trump fans* that 4d chess is ludicrous, Trump is extremely venal, etc. Instead, Chait just ranted in an echo chamber
Sun, Nov 18, 2018 at 9:05 pm
.@LPDonovan: if the goal is to undercut Trump or at least hold him accountable, what use are you, @jonathanchait, or any of the rest? Eg, discredit Dilbert to his fans would greatly help undercut Trump. You, Chait, etc aren't smart enough to do it & aren't sane enough to help.
