President Trump will officially launch his reelection bid in Orlando on Tuesday night and is already getting ready to go into attack mode against Democrats, who will be battling for the opportunity to be on the losing end of that campaign next November.
In anticipation of what promises to be the biggest clown show since Ringling Brothers folded up its tents, Trump has let the cat out of the bag on how he plans to spend his time during the highly-anticipated Dem debates.
When twenty of the daffiest politicians in America take to the stage at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts next week, Trump is reportedly planning to do a little bit of trolling by live-tweeting the entire sordid circus of shame.

President Trump has reportedly made plans to live-tweet the first two Democratic primary debates scheduled for next week against the advice of his closest aides.
The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that sources close to the president predict Trump will be active on Twitter throughout the two nights comprising the first Democratic primary debates of the 2020 election season.
The plans come reportedly despite advice from his top aides to let the Democrats attack each other in the media and onstage while remaining outside of the fray.
A spokesperson for the Trump campaign declined to comment to the Journal on the report. The topics and specific attacks to which the president responds on Twitter could provide insight for Democrats as to which issues the president sees as sensitive ahead of the general election.
It will mark the first time in presidential history that such a thing has been done and who better to pull it off than Trump who has truly embraced the medium of Twitter to circumvent the corrupt press and take his message directly to America.
The DNC had been careful to match up Elizabeth Warren against such no-hopers as Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker, Bill de Blasio, Amy Klobuchar and five other chumps too irrelevant to mention and now there is Trump looming with his gift of being able to trigger Pocahontas with a single tweet and as she is the only legitimate contender, she would command his undivided attention.
The second night will be a target rich environment with such big guns as Sloppy Joe, Mayor Pete, Comrade Bernie, and Kamala Harris verbally duking it out.
Additional details according to the Wall Street Journal:
The president, who has spent years embracing social media for his political advantage, is tentatively planning to live-tweet the debates on June 26-27, according to people familiar with the planning.
Mr. Trump, even from a remove, always promised to be the most important figure at the debate. Regardless of the specific debate questions, many Democratic voters will be listening for how each candidate plans to take down Mr. Trump.
Interacting in real time on Twitter would make Mr. Trump’s presence more tangible by directly inserting himself into the political conversation unfolding on stage. His posts could provide instant responses as well as insights into which attacks he feels most acutely.
Political advisers warned that planning for debate night remains fluid, and that Mr. Trump can change his mind. A campaign spokesman declined to comment.
The idea that Trump may “change his mind” at the last minute should keep Democrats on their heels and not knowing what to expect putting an already volatile field at the risk of a mega-meltdown on prime time national television.
For easily-rattled Democrats, it could be two nights of hanging on the Tree Of Woe so stock up on popcorn!
