Trump says he doesn't 'do Twitter storms' – uh huh, ok, sure

TwitterFacebook

President Donald Trump, who can both make the world cower in fear and belly laugh in response to his very well-known tweetstorms, wants you to know a very important fact: He doesn’t ‘do Twitter storms.’

“Do you notice when I go on and I’ll put out like a tweet or a couple of tweets, ‘He’s in a Twitter storm again,'” he said at a Phoenix rally Tuesday night. “I don’t do Twitter storms.”

OK, um, but what about the tweetstorm when ex-FBI Director James Comey got fired or the one about his failed Muslim travel ban or that time he tweetstormed the hell out of his Obama wiretapping accusations, oh and don’t forget the tweetstorms about the “illegal leaks,” Democrats, and the “fake media?” Read more…

Sweden's embassy in the U.S. is looking forward to schooling Trump

TwitterFacebook

So as President Donald Trump has already figured out, there were a few things that happened in Sweden on Friday. 

There was the car chase of a drunk driver, a major road closure, and a technical problem in the rehearsal of the country’s annual singing competition “Melodifestivalen.” But terror related? Certainly not.

Speaking at a rally in Melbourne, Florida, on Saturday, Trump alluded to a terrorism incident in Sweden as part of his argument for implementing his immigration ban. He ticked off a list of places affected by terrorism, taking aim at Europe’s immigration policies.  Read more…

President Trump has taken control of Twitter, wrenching the wheel, leading the dialogue, and steering it into almost certain disaster. And he won’t let go. 

For someone who supposedly doesn’t like Twitter very much Trump’s obsessed with it. So are plenty of other people, but they’re not the president of the United States. Most of their tweets don’t matter. At least, not like his.

Every single one of Trump’s tweets matters, which—while it may sadly be Peak Trump—is turning into a waking nightmare for the rest of us. And it could doom Twitter. Read more…

In the event supporters of Hillary Clinton haven’t had a bad enough day, Donald Trump’s camp just rammed the message home one last time, in the cruelest, most absurd way possible. 

At one of the many inaugural balls on Friday night, The Piano Guys—yes: The Piano Guys—decided it would be the perfect time to troll the opposition. Because who doesn’t love punching the poor person sobbing in the corner? 

SEE ALSO: This playlist for Trump’s inauguration will burn your ears off

So, The Piano Guys made it their business to play the summer anthem of the Democratic National Convention and a de facto theme of the Hillary campaign, Rachel Platten’s empowering “Fight Song.” If the melody doesn’t destroy your bleeding soul, the smug smiling face of cello player should do the trick.  Read more…
