Tak­ing it to the tweets

Toronto Star - - INSIGHT -

Harry Les­lie Smith en­thu­si­as­ti­cally shares his of­ten-bit­ing, some­times sen­ti­men­tal Twit­ter mus­ings with 117,000 fol­low­ers. His favourite tar­gets are U.S. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and U.K. Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May. A re­cent sam­pling from @har­ryslast­stand:

There are a mil­lion kids in poverty to­day thanks to Tory aus­ter­ity but the me­dia chooses to fawn over #prince­ge­orge’s first day of school. (Sept. 7)

We are on the cusp of world war b/c #Don­aldTrump is both in­com­pe­tent and ir­ra­tional #NorthKorea (Sept. 6)

#justin­trudeau keeps say­ing Cana­dian econ­omy is boom­ing but asides from CEO’s work­ers’ wages haven’t seen raises since 1990s. #bankof­canada (Sept. 6)

My feel­ing is had Charles Man­son grown up to be an oli­garch rather than a se­rial killer he’d have been just like #Don­aldtrump #northkorea (Sept. 5)

Al­ways fear a Pres­i­dent who shirked his na­tional ser­vice dur­ing a time of war but wants to send your kids into the meat grinder of bat­tle. (Aug. 30)

Whether it’s #don­aldtrump or #There­saMay their plans have brought the mis­ery of the 1930s closer to the 21st cen­tury for the av­er­age cit­i­zen (Aug. 28)

Sorry to break it to you but #don­aldTrump is no more for help­ing the com­mon peo­ple than Hitler, Stalin or any other dem­a­gogue of tyranny. (Aug. 25)

Where I am it’s 5:30 pm- warm & sunny. So I think I am go­ing to have a San­gria lis­ten to some mu­sic & re­mem­ber my wed­ding 70 years ago to­day (Aug. 16)
