TRUMP ANGRY! LAUNCH MISSILES! Today in Tweets, Friday the 13th Edition [UPDATED]

McCabe is Comey! Comey is McCabe! Black is white! Tyranny is freedom!

UPDATE about 5 minutes after this went up: TRUMP ORDERS MISSILE STRIKES ON SYRIA

Here are a few initial reactions to the strikes on Twitter, followed by my original post:

By David Futrelle

So much going on today.Trump is losing it on Twitter as he contemplates firing Rod Rosenstein — which would basically trigger a constitutional crises — and/or launching what will almost certainly be a disastrous attack on Syria (even by normal US foreign policy standards).

But wait there’s more! Apparently Mueller has evidence that Michael Cohen lied about not being in Prague for a meeting discussed in the Steele dossier. Gosh, that “dodgy dossier” seems to be full of actual true things, while Michael Cohen’s mouth seems to be full of lies. Oh, and Comey started his book tour today. And Trump fucking pardoned Scooter Libby!

The day isn’t even over yet.

Here’s an actual tweet from the actual president today:

And here’s an old Tweet from his dodgy lawyer:

NARRATOR: But he had been to Prague.

Here’s Mr. Cohen today:

Meanwhile, some fans of pretty alt-lite ladies are having a little trouble trying to create artistic tributes to their goddesses:

Some transphobes are having trouble with pronouns. The CONCEPT of pronouns, that is.

David has said before that Jacques is his (great?)grandfather. Iirc, he died when he offered to stay behind while the rest of his family escaped the ship. His wife chose to stay with Jacques while everyone else managed to escape.

He told the story in one of the Titanic/‘women and children first is MAJOR MISANDRY U GUIS!!!!’ threads lying about the site.

why is not policy of madness here any more? something happened?

Slate has a piece on the “Zuckerberg Hearings“… one good line:

Cambridge Analytica is tied up with another of our current moment’s most complicated and ever-developing stories, the Mueller investigation. (It’s like they’re both part of an Extended Trump Presidency Universe horror series.)

I thought the senseless bombing of a random Middle Eastern country was everything they’d been clamouring for?

I suppose this is a very “careful what you wish for” situation. They aren’t happy that he’s bombing the one Middle Eastern country that they happen to be kind of okay with.

“Assad launched a chemical attack on his citizens in April, 2017. The US retaliated by bombing deserted air bases. After giving lots of warning via Twitter.

Assad launched a chemical attack on his citizens in April, 2018. The US retaliated by bombing deserted air bases. After giving lots of warning via Twitter.

Is this going to become an annual fucking event?”

THIS! I’m going insane watching the news and NOT ONE WORD about this treasonous act that benifits not only the companys who manufacturer these missiles at millions a pop, but also his asshole buddy Putin with lots of intel to collect when the dust settles. You watch, there’ll be an announcement to update/upgrade our cruise missile arsenal to the tune of billions!

@Alan,

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!

So, why are they okay with Assad?

The more conspiracy minded like Assad because he’s taking on ‘the Jews’ (ie getting his stuff blown up by the Israelis).

@Fruitloopsie: ‘S all right– it’s not an overly common word, it DOES look like a portmanteau of “Donald” and “t*rd”, and if you don’t know the etymology it’s easy to think it might be derived from the more insulting word (sort of like the word “niggardly”, meaning cheap or stingy, looks like it’s derived from the racial insult but is thought to come from the Scandanavian word nig, “miser”).

Thank you Fruitloopsie, but I’m gonna have to go with WWTH’s suggestion, because dragons

Late per the norm, but re: Kentucky:

I live here too. Blease help.

Goddamn, I get pissed off every time I hear about more racially motivated gun violence but there’s just something about that kinda nerdy looking kid with glasses and a hoodie awkwardly scratching the back of his head…

…I don’t know. It’s probably because I personally identify pretty strongly with that sort of self-image (related: what the fuck is up with people saying they can’t identify with someone who’s not white?) but this one’s hitting me particularly hard. Like I know this WOULD never have happened to me (I’m a white guy in Australia, to name two reasons) but I’m imagining if it had and it would be fucking terrifying.

Hmm. Actually I do remember a guy yelling at me for loitering around his yard at night as part of a game me and some other kids were playing, and it just dawned on me that as a black kid in the States there’s a good chance I’d just have gotten shot in that scenario.

Fucking dammit. What is WRONG with us? It’s not like we treat nonwhite Australians any better over here, save possibly for less shooting. I’m sure that’s a lot of consolation to Indigenous parents whose children were and still are stolen from them on a regular basis. Fucking hell. I can’t even express how disappointed I am in what our culture teaches us to do right now.
