As we told you on Friday, many Democrats didn’t appreciate it when Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler dumped four Pinocchios all over their “most persuasive message” tested against Trump. Here’s the claim that former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau (among others) think is effective against Trump: “Trump proposed nearly $1 trillion in cuts to Medicare to pay for his tax cut for millionaires and billionaires.”
But the Democrat search for the most effective message to use against Trump continues:
Democrats are privately pushing polling showing that going after Trump’s Twitter addiction — and accusing him of being ineffective because of it — may be the party’s most effective message. https://t.co/uI4LzUzrcH

Gee, it seems like only yesterday that the Mueller report would be the end of the Trump presidency, and now it’s come to stuff like this:
Last weeks poll-tested “most persuasive message against Trump” was a 4 Pinocchio lie.
This week’s poll-tested “most effective message” is that the President is addicted to Twitter.
People pay for this stuff. pic.twitter.com/uuyJSZalhj

How does anybody listen to the center of American progress after 2016?

Calling @realDonaldTrump a "Nazi" didn't work
Calling him a "White Supremacist" didn't work
Next up: "Twitter addict" https://t.co/9e7csPD7r4

What tomorrow’s “most effective” talking points against Trump will consist of remain to be seen.
