Friday morning the president unleashed a series of typo-ridden tweets explaining his last-minute reversal of the decision to bomb three different sites in Iran. “What I find interesting about the tweets that we read live 45-50 minutes ago is that they came out in a series. They weren’t scattered, which tells you it was very careful language used in when dealing with matters like these, it’s evident, you find in the wording there,” said Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer. PSA: It’s safe to say that under no circumstances should a Donald Trump tweet be referred to as “very careful language.” Aside from random, mid-sentence capitalization which he seems to have branded for himself, the president wrote ‘I.8 billion dollars’ in the first tweet in the series, probably meaning 1?

“Mah dearest Twittuh: The beef continues with no end in sight. As I put my quill to virtual parchment, our ruthless foe is encamped at the Kimmel, in preparation for yet another assault on your beleaguered beloved. Though his fail is epic, his taunts do haunt. The battle between Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity and CNN’s Jim Acosta continued apace Thursday night, with Hannity and his guest Mark Levin, currently also promoting a book, trashing Acosta on air and then Hannity doing so again on Twitter. He fired twice, in fact.

In yet another round of a media beef nobody asked for, Fox News’ Sean Hannity threw a gratuitous shot at the book sales of CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta, who promptly challenged the machismo of Hannity for the second time in as many weeks. In a tweet on Thursday morning, ostensibly about conservative talk show host Mark Levin‘s new book, Hannity found enough characters to mock “#FakeNewsAcosta” and his “garbage” book sales. Hours later, Acosta quote tweeted Hannity, mocking the latter’s habit of wearing reading glasses on air and claiming he didn’t have Continue reading "Jim Acosta and Sean Hannity Continue Twitter Beefing: Acosta’s Book Sales Are ‘Garbage’; Hannity Has No ‘Guts’"

President Donald Trump attempted to cite Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to put down talk of impeachment, but the progressive lawmaker quickly responded “I’ll call your bluff any day of the week.” Trump tweeted out a partial quote from AOC’s interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl Sunday morning, using it to argue against impeachment. Her full quote was “I think that we have a very real risk of losing the presidency to Donald Trump if we do not have a presidential candidate that is fighting for true transformational change in the lives of working people in the United States.” Ocasio-Cortez herself later responded directly to

They are both a disgrace to our Country, the Enemy of the People, but I just can’t seem to figure out which is worse?”

WH Press Buries Sarah Sanders on Her Way Out Over Briefing Drought: ‘Help Wanted: Once a Year, Maybe Less’

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders leaves after a daily news briefing at the James Brady Press Briefing of the White House January 2, 2018 in Washington, DC. On Thursday, June 16 2019, President Donald Trump announced that Sanders is leaving her position. When the news broke that White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is leaving her post, naturally all of media had immediate reactions, whether live on the air or, like many White House reporters, on Twitter. And in particular among those White House reporters, the issue of the lack of briefings held by Sanders in the last year, and the decline in briefings in general over the course of the administration, came up. A lot. HuffPo’s White House reporter Jennifer Bendery had maybe the most biting, roast-y slam.

But the jabs at Sanders and the White House over the lack of briefings was nearly Continue reading "WH Press Buries Sarah Sanders on Her Way Out Over Briefing Drought: ‘Help Wanted: Once a Year, Maybe Less’"

President Donald Trump took to Twitter tonight to call out a CNN Twitter account for a misspelled word. No, seriously. Several people were a little confused when the president tweeted out “is = if (Spell)! Not like Chris.” So here’s what is going on. Trump responded to a tweet from Geraldo Rivera blasting Bill Maher for his comments about the president to CNN’s Chris Cuomo earlier this week. Rivera responded to a tweet from Cuomo Prime Time featuring a clip of Maher expressing concern that Trump “won’t go” if he loses in 2020.

Ted Cruz is back at it with the accusations of Twitter trying to silence conservatives. This time, he thinks Twitter’s algorithm is intentionally recommending he follow Democrats, even though it must know he is a conservative. “Is it just me or is there something REALLY wrong with Twitter’s algorithms? Because I follow Steve Scalise and several other GOP members of Congress, I get recommended tweets from Ted Deutch … Sheldon Whitehouse … Steve Cohen … Chuck Schumer … and Chris Murphy?” Cruz tweeted. Twitter wasted no time pointing out that maybe, Cruz is getting Continue reading "Ted Cruz Thinks Twitter Is Intentionally Recommending He Follow Democrats… Others Disagree"

Trump shrugging and Twitter in background President Trump was keeping people on Twitter lit up all morning on Sunday, rampaging against the New York Times, tweeting about former President Barack Obama, and getting set on fire by an enraged staffer spouse. In this case, it was for his brining up the very hot and triggering topic of people being banned on social media, people who he referred to as “Conservative Voices” that should be brought back. Obviously, like most of the Twitter morning, it didn’t go well. The primary blue checkmark response was about identifying which actual folks were banned.

Trump Rampages Over NYT Story On Mexico Tariffs: ‘They are truly The Enemy of the People!’

President Donald Trump delivers remarks in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington, DC on February 15, 2019 regarding the border wall and his declaring an emergency in order to get funding. President Donald Trump opened up a whole thread of rage on Twitter Sunday in response to the devastating New York Times report, published Saturday, that Mexico’s concessions were not a result of pressure from tariffs but rather months of preparation. The random caps rant accused the Times of being fake news and disputed the premise of the story, if not any of the actual facts. The Times reported that the deal which Trump announced on Friday “consists largely of actions that Mexico had already promised to take in prior discussions with the United States over the past several months,” and that it was not in the main reached because Mexico was responding to the tariff threat. Trump was enraged on Twitter on Sunday and unleashed a threaded tirade. He began by pointing out that the Times was correct that such border actions had been something the U.S. was trying Continue reading "Trump Rampages Over NYT Story On Mexico Tariffs: ‘They are truly The Enemy of the People!’"

Twitter Reacts to Maxine Waters Correctly Predicting When Trump Would ‘Back Off’ on Mexico Tariff Threat

Maxine Waters Correctly Predicts Time Trump Would Back Off Mexico Tariff Threat First she gained Internet fame for “reclaiming my time,” and now Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is wowing Twitter for correctly predicting the time when President Donald Trump would “back off” on his Mexico tariff threat. In a tweet on early Friday afternoon, the Congresswoman noted how Senate GOP opposition meant Trump now faced almost insurmountable, bipartisan opposition to his latest front in the trade war, and she boldly declared: “Bet you bottom dollar, Trump will back off by the weekend, Just another bluff?” Just a few hours later, the State Department announced an agreement with Mexico that notably lacked any specific metrics or conditions on future immigration levels. Trump then quickly announced that his previous, ironclad tariff threat that Mexico must stop “all illegal immigration” was “indefinitely suspended.”

On Friday, Rich griped that a link he posted to the song on Twitter was deemed “unsafe.” “Hey @twitter you’ve deemed the #1 most downloaded song in country music to be harmful and in violation of your terms? 100% of the proceeds go to ⁦@FoldsofHonor⁩ You need to fix this,” Rich tweeted, including a screenshot of the tweet and sketchy link that was deemed “harmful.”

Don Lemon Says CNN Isn’t Liberal and Neither is His Show, and Conservatives On Twitter. . . Well, Pounce

CNN’s Don Lemon spoke at the Financial Times Future of News event in New York City on Thursday, and among several newsworthy remarks, offered a defense of CNN’s political coverage broadly, and his own specifically. His comments were tweeted by people in attendance, and from there, the internet (and reaction gifs) took over. Conservatives, including yours truly, were ready. The topic of CNN being in the tank, in the bag, or just plain liberal is favorite on the right. The tweet might as well have said “let the memes and gifs begin!” Some of the best were from the not-blue-checked-but-obviously-great-at-gifs Twitter demographic.

Determined to quell any clowning of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, last month Twitter went after a parody account of AOC with 85,000 followers @AOCPress. This week, they’ve suspended a similar account @AOCoffice. The new parody account described itself as “Parody for Da Boss of NY-14 (Bronx + Queens)” and had over 29,000 followers. Upon opening it tweeted:       Thanks for deleting me, @jack! It means so much that you won’t let people make fun of me! — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Office (Parody) (@AOCoffice) May 7, 2019 Some had been fooled into thinking the account was the real thing, maybe because it used the same avatar photo or maybe, because, umm, it wouldn’t be wildly out of character for AOC to say things like this.

Pundit Class, Having Learned Nothing From 2016, Breathlessly Shares Poll Showing Trump Losing Texas to Biden

The latest from Quinnipiac on the 2020 presidential race shows a mildly surprising, modest lead for former VP Joe Biden over President Donald Trump, in this, T-minus 16 months and change from the big day. Although relying on early polling data for the 2016 election left a lot of pundits trying to explain to their audience why they didn’t know Trump would win, some were still dropping squees like teenagers at a puppy show on Valentine’s Day. Perhaps the most delightful delighted-ness was that of Washington Post anti-Trump columnist, formerly their conservative columnist, Jennifer Rubin. She didn’t quite bet the family farm on the eventual outcome but STILL. She wasn’t alone, though, there were ALL CAPS to spare.
