~*The Official Thread of Presidential Tantrums and Candy-Throwing*~

Recommended Posts

I have no idea, they don't have a problem getting water to put out the fires, and no amount of water capture is going to prevent the fires, unless hes talking flooding the central valley or something ridiculous, lol.  We're talking about a guy who lied about having a giant screen set up outside a rally so people could watch, you know something everyone in attendance could literally fact check themselves.

 

Its far more likely hes really just attempting to lash out at his opponents since CA is mostly Dem so therefore whatever they're doing is clearly causing these fires.

Does anyone have even the slightest clue what these tweets are going on about?

I think this is the second time he's talked about CA dumping water into the ocean.

 

My best guess is that he's thinking about how the flood management (relating to managing rainfall) infrastructure diverts water out to the ocean instead of capturing it, and that he somehow got it in his syphilis-ridden head that this is causing California to have insufficient water to put out the fires.

43% of the party of small government believe the president should be able to shut down news organizations for "bad behavior", lol.  The headline too, Free Dumb.

 

https://www.thedailybeast.com/new-poll-43-of-republicans-want-to-give-trump-the-power-to-shut-down-media?source=twitter&via=desktop

 

 

All told, 43 percent of self-identified Republicans said that they believed “the president should have the authority to close news outlets engaged in bad behavior.” Only 36 percent disagreed with that statement. When asked if Trump should close down specific outlets, including CNN, The Washington Post, and The New York Times, nearly a quarter of Republicans (23 percent) agreed and 49 percent disagreed.

I'd be curious what constitutes "bad behaviour". I'm assuming whatever Trump says is bad.

I'm sure these same people would be perfectly fine if Obama had threatened to shut down Fox News.

I remember the outrage when the Obama Administration jokingly left off "News" from the Fox News table card at the WHCD.

Some angry woman posted this quote in the comments section of Fox News to “prove” that Obama was just as down on Fox News as Trump is on everything that isn’t Fox. 

 

 

Quote

“I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It’s a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it’s been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it’s that Fox is very successful.”

 

 

Wow, look at that, he’s being so anti-Fox.  Wowsers. What a salacious comment. Exactly like Trump. Why, if you look at everything Obama said about Fox News over 8 years, you can find 3 or 4 similar quotes to this. It’s like, the EXACT same thing... uh...

How doesn't his base ever get tired of this? Like, Jesus Christ man.

 

Even if this was something that didn't matter from a real friend in real life I would be telling them to shut the fuck up about it already. I'm tired of this. What more is there to even say? How are they not tired of this? Even if anything he said was true (which, almost none of it is) I would be tired of how often he beats these drums.

You know what I need to see when this is all over? A compilation of how many variations of the same tweet he sent complaining about the probe.

They're probably not sick of it because they're not actually paying attention to it nearly as much as we are. This is borne out by the fact that Trump was "elected" at all. Anyone who was even half-way paying attention couldn't possibly have voted for him, right? :p

Most people aren't reading his tweets. Many in the news pay too much attention to them.

No, he's punishing them for the continuing detainment of an American pastor.  The atrocious phrasing of the tweet makes it appear there's a correlation between the lira's decline and the tariffs.

Didn't he and Erdogan bro-fist bump not so long ago?

At the NATO summit.

 

OH GOD!  I just had a notion that perhaps if this escalated, it could cause Erdogan to withdraw Turkey from NATO! :rofl:

Trump was silent on the line while Erdogan asked Putin how he really feels about Trump?

U.S.-Turkey Relations Will Never Be the Same (Bloomberg)

 

On Wednesday, Stars and Stripes reported that a group of pro-government lawyers in Turkey have filed charges against several U.S. officers at the Incirlik Air Base, accusing them too of ties to terrorist groups. They are demanding all flights leaving the base be temporarily suspended and a search warrant be executed.
