.@mbalter: if he were smart enough, @jonathanchait could have easily done smart things that would have prevented Trump. Eg, urging all his MSM pals to call out Trump or his proxies on how Trump's main selling point (the "wall") is unimplementable. Was Chait smart enough?

My confidential sources - which include @HeerJeet & @JonathanChait - have informed me that the upcoming Mueller report will result in an immediate impeachment for collusion! The report will be released in March so we're only a few weeks away! #TheResistance!

Apparently the chart was created by the @nypost, but since the White House press secretary tweeted it, I will claim the achievement anyway.

@jonathanchait @nypost That’s a tough draw with @RyanLizza man. Though I’m most intrigued by the @chrislhayes-Don Lemmon 7-2 matchup.

.@samstein: hey Sam, @jonathanchait etc etc bet it all on collusion. They never once tried to undercut Trump to his base (which is what really matters) despite how vulnerable he is. There are smart, easy ways to undercut Trump over things like Puerto Rico. Has Chait done them?

.@jbview: here's an easy way you could really help hold Trump accountable. Call a Trump proxy on how they'd stop a future Congress under a Dem pres from tearing down/neglecting Trump "wall". When will you or @jonathanchait do something so easy but that'd have such an impact?

.@br7ndon: in his Vox interview, Sanders opposed Koch-friendly #immigration policy. Then, when he ran for prez the first time he pushed Koch-friendly immigration policy. Do you see @EricLevitz or @jonathanchait calling him on that? Of course not: they agree with the new Sanders.

.@neeratanden: you & @jonathanchait have pals with megaphones. Can you direct us to *anything* either of you have ever said having any sort of negative impact on Trump? Aren't you worthless at undercutting Trump or holding him accountable on even the most trivial of things?

.@neeratanden defends herself. I'll take her word for it. What are your efforts to inform Trump's *base* how future Congresses would neglect/tear down his wall? Are you & @jonathanchait informing Breitbart *readers* about how they push amnesty? https://imgur.com/a/tyYXWvJ

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

.@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
Mon, Jan 28, 2019 at 8:25 pm
.@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
Mon, Jan 28, 2019 at 8:28 pm
.@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.
