Tweets of the Week

The mini break is over. Time to get to work. But before I do, here are some of the incredible tweets I gathered over the last week. By themselves, they’re nothing. Altogether in a short period of time? You decide:


A twofer:

Yes, THAT John Dean:

I have a recent interest in Singapore.

We told you so:

But noooooo, WE were called racists for calling out his ties to the finance industry back in 2008.


And the best tweet of the week:


{{OMG, we’re doomed}}


One more that I forgot about. This isn’t a tweet. It’s from Greg Sargent’s PlumLine at WaPo. Markup is my own:


Damn, Spotify knows me too well. It’s spooky:


New tweets from Andy Slavitt sums up the Trump-Republican era:

Is THAT what Trump voters sent Donald to Washington to do? Because I’m having a hard time understanding how this Makes America Great Again.

And he sent Mark Mulvaney to the CFPB this morning when he was not authorized to do so.

The CFPB is practically the only thing that stands between you and the underhanded practices of bad companies who scam consumers with fees and fine print.

So, there’s that.

Would a Trump supporter care to tell us in the comments EXACTLY he/she expected from Trump? Because they’re not going to just piss off the liberals.

  1. Yglesias is so annoying. He pushed and pushed for Obama and then he pushed and pushed for Bernie. Maybe the 30 something bros just don’t have good judgement.

    • And his voice is so whiny and plagued by vocal fry. Ezra and Sarah are great and I generally loved everyone at FiveThirtyEight. But I’m beginning to think our side is missing a crucial voice that none of these X Gens and Millenials are covering.
      Just think what might have happened if we had nominated Hillary in 2008. I blame the Yglesias, Stoller and Favreau types. This is the result of the old boys mentoring the new boys and women being relegated to the sidelines in political punditry.

  2. WOW… this one is truly unbelievable. Try to defend the statement “Donald Trump is NOT a narcissist” after reading this.

    We should have a contest as to which of the Networks, plus CNN and not including Fox, is the most dishonest, corrupt and/or distorted in its political coverage of your favorite President (me). They are all bad. Winner to receive the FAKE NEWS TROPHY!

    IMO It is impossible, this guy is just way out there.

    • There’s a lot going on this week and watching Donald tweet is the least of our problems.
      Let’s ignore him, shall we?

      • Sure, but it is hard to ignore him when he’s followed around by an aide carrying the nuclear strike code.

        • Again, there is a LOT going on this week. He’s going to make outrageous tweets because 1.) they serve as n effective diversion and 2) there are no consequences for him for doing it. Take the degree of accountability as an indicator of the importance of the infraction.
          Tweets are cheap and shiny but we do not need to be magpies when net neutrality is at stake.

          • What will our “journalists” pay attention to?

            Trump’s tweets and OMG Prince Harry is engaged!!!

        • Ascended Madoka grant that those codes are faked. 😮
