TwitterFacebook

Just for once, it would be delightful to wake up on, hop on Twitter, and not see Donald Trump acting like a complete idiot.

This. Is. The. President. Of. The. United. States. Of. America. Retweeting. Shit. Like. This.

91-year-old former congressman shows millennials how to tweet about Trump

TwitterFacebook

91-year-old former congressman John Dingell has been quick, witty, and on fire with his 140 characters for years.

Despite his age, he knows how to use the tweet machine the way it was intended: biting commentary, playful retweets, and insightful and smart reactions. Time and again he’s shown he’s mastered Twitter.

After the violence in Charlottesville and Trump’s bumbling mess of a response to the anti-Semitism and white supremacy on display, Dingell took to Twitter in the days following. One particular tweet resonated, with thousands praising the longtime Michigan lawmaker for posting what the president struggled to say.  Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Sports have always been political—but ESPN hasn’t.

That tension, which has existed quietly for years at the sports-media giant, has turned into an outright controversy that reached a new height on Friday when President Donald Trump targeted the company via his Twitter account.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2017
