10 takes on Trump doco

10 has pre-bought a UK documentary about Donald Trump’s use of social media, #Trump: How Social Media Changed the Presidency.

The doco chronicles the rise to power of the first so-called ‘Twitter president.’

Ten years since Trump’s first tweet, the film uses archives and a cast of political experts and former members of Trump’s administration, including Anthony Scaramucci, to unpick how, in just 140 characters, Twitter changed the way political communication takes place in the US.

The one-hour special is set to be delivered in March but an airdate has not been announced.

  1. Media organisations are largely to blame for increasing the divisiveness in politics not only in the US but also in Australia. Over recent years, FoxNews is so pro Trump that it borders on ludicrous – it seems that they are there in a GoP marketing role rather than providing balanced comment.

OTH, CNN are clearly anti Trump though they do tend to get more GoP comment than FoxNews gets Dem comment.

  2. Trump derangement is every where except where it counts, the US voting system. There is at least another 4 years of it coming when he wins later this year. Don Jr may then run in 2024 and it will go on for at least another 8 years after that.

      • That’s due to the electoral college. It was put in place back since US independence in 1776 so that elections were decided by all states not just by the most populated states. This was to ensure all states had equal democracy in federal elections and would not break away from the union. By the way the popular vote isn’t used in Australia either to determine who’s Prime Minister, its by the number of seats you win. Tony Abbott had 650,000 more votes than Julia Gillard in 2010 but Gillard still won the election.

        • Well aware of the very outdated ‘electoral college’ system but the fact remains that said system is absurd-each state organizes the election differently, with differing standards-some allocate college delegates proportionally. others winner takes all-voter registration standards are different and this is supposed to be an election for the same post of US President! Our flawed system is still greatly in advance of the US but changing their constitution is effectively impossible now.
