I signed up for Twitter a few months ago, but I have not been able to bring myself to tweet. Nobody cares what I have to say anyway.
This morning, I was horrified to learn, in this news story, that Trump’s twitter account might be taken away from him: https://qz.com/959639/north-korea-tensions-show-its-time-to-take-twitter-away-from-donald-trump/
The following quote is from the news article:
Donald Trump’s personal Twitter account is one of the reasons that he won the 2016 US presidential election. It allowed him to insult challengers and refute naysayers, build his fanbase by hand, and launch a new subgroup of political coverage.
But as US president, Trump’s use of the social network to bully foreign governments is dangerous, as the Chinese government seemed to say today. “We call on all parties to refrain from provoking and threatening each other, whether in words or actions, and not let the situation get to an irreversible and unmanageable stage,” China’s foreign minister warned.
Trump should be advised that the worst thing that can happen to a Chinese man is to “lose face”. This happens when a Chinese man is insulted or mocked. I am not sure if Chinese women “lose face”. I believe that Chinese women do not have any “face” to lose, but I could be wrong. I learned all about the Chinese losing face from my Chinese doctor, who came to America a few years ago, straight from China.
When a Chinese man loses face, the usual remedy is for him to kill himself. Hopefully, this will not happen.
That’s all she wrote, and she rubbed that out.
