By all means, let's focus on his attitudes toward women, his willingness to throw in with open racists, his vengeful spite toward real and perceived enemies. But following his tweets as if there is any new information to be divined from them is an exercise in angst fatigue. Trump is going to do enough stupid and avaricious things in his first three months to dwarf the administrations of the last forth years combined, and maybe Nixon, too. Focusing on when get makes a tweet about how his VP was treated by the cast of a Broadway musical just reinforces the notion that he's not one of the "establishment elites". In terms of how the people who voted for Trump will think, it's a net positive. The best possible thing to do is deny him that exposure, and focus on the actually shitty things he is almost certainly going to do that have real, lasting consequences.
