Doris Kearns Goodwin: Trump Needs a Fake Twitter Account So He Can Vent When He’s Angry
GOODWIN: "He had a great ritual. When he got angry, he wrote what he called a hot letter. All anger would come out in the hot letter and put the letter aside and hope he would calm down and never need to send it and it would become a cool letter. He had written a letter saying I’m distressed you didn’t do what I asked you to do and this will paralyze the general. Puts it aside and never opened until the 20th century when the papers are opened and never sent or signed. When I met with President Obama I was telling him about Lincoln’s hot letters. I said do you think of doing that? What do you mean? I do it all the time. I said what do you mean? He writes letters to people and gets mad and then crumples them up and puts them in the waste basket. Maybe we have a model here for Mr. Trump if he has a fake Twitter account and then he can write it all and say it to everybody and read in his own office and crumple it up and throw it away."
