Dennis Culloton offers Vanity Fair his take on why Trump may never stop tweeting:
It’s so quaint that politicians still get pissed at the press and utter some version of Mark Twain’s, “Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.”
That was underscored again Monday by Donald Trump, who tweeted, “If the press would cover me accurately and honorably, I would have far less reason to ‘tweet.’ Sadly, I don’t know if that will ever happen!”
Then there’s Dennis Culloton, a Chicago corporate and political consultant who was once spokesman for a Republican Illinois governor.
“Like it or not, with nearly 17 million followers on Twitter, President-elect Trump has a bigger audience than the mainstream media he assails. Never pick a fight with someone who buys tweets by the barrel.”
