Oh, boy. . .
President Trump is out with a statement on the death of Colin Powell, calling him a “classic RINO” and saying that he “made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!”:
"Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media. Hope that happens to me someday…" pic.twitter.com/QIXu7wf2EM

We’ll go out on a limb here and say there will be tweets:
You don't have to tweet Trump's Colin Powell statement.

It’s like catnip:

We can ask this same question about the media’s response to any Trump statement:
did you expect anything else? honestly. pic.twitter.com/5ivR4BhylD

The NYT’s Maggie Haberman added that he’s envious of the Powell coverage:
And of course it’s larded in envy about coverage.

And libs are giving away the game because we KNOW how they’ll react when Trump dies:
A good point that will face a tough test when trump dies https://t.co/Sd2aQJadx8

“May he rot in hell,” even:
Wow!!! @maggieNYT I think the expression "May he rot in hell" exists for Donald Trump. We always knew he was the lowest of humanity, and he continues to demonstrate it. https://t.co/GIJjFBoYdJ

And “#onceapsychopath,” tweets Martina Navratilova:
How can anyone be surprised at this stage by trump’s utter depravity? Apparently Maggie was hoping for something different. Not me,
man… #onceapsychopath etc… https://t.co/KNmlSCwUbQ

And who needs Twitter when journos and other blue-checks will tweet out everything anyway?
funniest trick trump ever pulled was getting kicked off twitter and then getting every journalist in the world to publish his tweets via these moronic emailed statements.
