    Chelsea Clinton called out White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon on Twitter for “fat shaming” press secretary Sean Spicer. “The White House using fat shaming to justify increased opacity. 2017,” the former first daughter tweeted Tuesday. Clinton’s tweet came one day after Bannon told a reporter via a text message that the reason for the recent spate of off-camera briefings was because “Sean got fatter.” Clinton retweeted British author Brian Klaas, who called the excuse “pathetic and undemocratic.” …

  • Writer for WaPo Attempts to Justify Shooting of Elected Representatives, #RadicalLeft

    06/15/2017 3:28:15 AM PDT · by davikkm · 30 replies
    Malcolm Harris, a writer for the Washington Post, attempted to justify mass-shootings targeting elected representatives following Wednesday’s radical left-wing attack. His first tweet on the shooting of Congressman Scalise read: “Some shot Steve Scalise?” with a number of eye emojis following it. Shortly thereafter, Harris tweeted the following in an attempt to justify today’s shooting that left a representative in critical condition making a reference to the repeal of Obamacare: “If the shooter has a serious health condition then is taking potshots at the GOP house leadership considered self defense?” Harris went on since to further deepen the hole he’s...

    No sooner did news break that a gunman shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) were left-wing Twitter users celebrating the attack — in which two Capitol Police were also shot, as well as a congressional staffer, and possibly more.   Activist and media personality, Tariq Nasheed, appeared to indicate support for the shooting on Twitter:   Author Malcom Harris, "joked"(?) that the shooter may have simply been acting in self-defense: Sonia Gupta, a former prosecutor from Scalise's home state of Louisiana, offered up this:   Twitter user "Leon Trotsky" wrote that Scalise's shooting was "karma" for his "tea bag" beliefs:   Twitter user "Charles Oakley"...

    So the WSJ et al who have spent the better part of the last 18 months blocking anything positive about Trump, now want Twitter to block Trump?! The Wall Street Journal took to Twitter over the weekend to coyly ask: “When President Trump blocks Twitter followers, does it violate the Constitution?” What else are WSJ journalists drinking in their all-day coffee break caramel infused frappés and lattés?

    Hating for the Sake of Hatred Society’s loudest screechers, all those with any access to the mainstream media’s bullying bullhorn have become lost in unhinged hatred. They now hate for the sake of hatred. The visceral hatred of the MSM-supported Lib-Left progressives has all the characteristics of an ongoing, over the top family feud, a world-wide one. Few remember how they got to be so irrationally unhinged. No one knows why they are so angry, they just are.

    A GOP donor who once had ties to IBM is the man behind the millions of Twitter bots President Trump counts on as followers who could be employed to target voters with misleading or fake news on social media. In order for it to work, the scheme relies on the quiet guidance of Robert Mercer, a reclusive Republican mega-donor and staunch Trump supporter, sources told the Daily News. Mercer, who during the campaign with help from his daughter Rebekah, played a below-the-radar — but integral — role in raising money for Trump and connected him with critical figures like Stephen...

    A screenshot is circulating around social media that allegedly shows a tweet made by Democratic Representative Maxine Waters where she blames “our inaction on climate and healthcare” for motivating yesterday’s terror attacks in London. The tweet says: “Please pray for the safety of our Muslim brothers and sisters in #London. Our inaction on climate change and healthcare has pushed them to this”. While Maxine Waters is undoubtedly eligible for the top prize as a regressive leftist for her idiotic words and actions, this time she is not guilty. Maxine Waters might be a climate change shill, but she did...

    Top leaders of five Nordic countries are rejecting claims that they "trolled" President Donald Trump by posing for a photo that is drawing comparisons to the US leader's now-infamous moment with a glowing orb during his trip to Saudi Arabia. The photo, which was first reported by The Hill, shows the prime ministers of Norway, Finland, Iceland, Sweden and Denmark all placing their hands on a European soccer ball -- an image that would most likely have been viewed as benign had it not surfaced just days after one of the most memorable moments from Trump's first foreign trip to...

    Every morning I wake up before 5am Eastern and switch on the TV to watch the early version of ″Fox & Friends″. Aside from enjoying my breakfast with the lovely Heather Childress, I learn what the ′Big News′ item is for the day ahead. The big topic this morning was a Midnight tweet on Twitter by President Donald Trump. The story is that he allegedly misspelled the word ′coverage′ when he wrote ′covfefe′ instead in a tweet about the negative press. As a Shaolin Master Abbott of the Temple of Trump Fu, I saw the true purpose of the...

    What do you do about a problem like covfefe? That word from President Trump's late tweet set Twitter ablaze overnight, sparking jokes and quasi-definitions of what seems to have been a typo. The covfefe kerfuffle is a new reminder that we're living in a unique political era: even the words are brand new.The tweet — "Despite the constant negative press covfefe" — was retweeted and liked more than 100,000 times after it was posted around midnight Tuesday night. It was deleted around 6 a.m. Wednesday, but by then, the typo had become a word, with a rapidly evolving life of...
  • Twitter Trolls Apparently Didn’t Like How Donald Trump Sang the National Anthem

    In the next edition of Donald Trump can do nothing right ever, we give you the National Anthem. Shortly before delivering Memorial Day remarks Monday at Arlington National Cemetery, President Trump joined with the audience in the traditional signing of America’s national song. Unlike a lot in Trumpland, it all went off smoothly — but that still didn’t stop a certain class of Twitter liberal from taking exception. The crime this time was Trump’s personal rendition of the anthem, which trolls online apparently deemed insufficiently respectful — or something. Here’s a snapshot of the miasma of faux outrage.

    Washington (AFP) – US President Donald Trump, who was uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter during his nine-day trip abroad, resumed his favorite past-time Sunday with a tweet storm in which he thundered against “fake news.” “It is my opinion that many of the leaks coming out of the White House are fabricated lies made up by the #FakeNews media,” he wrote the morning after his return home. “Whenever you see the words ‘sources say’ in the fake news media, and they don’t mention names it is very possible that those sources don’t exsist but are made up by fake news writers....
