    Trump legitimately seemed to tweet from Mike Pence's twitter account. I am generally shocked that I can still be shocked. *blinks*
    The worst part about the internet is that it let the truly crazy, racist, and bigots find each other easily.

    Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Science isn't about politics. Forcing it to be so means you get shitty science, and also by this context, the ability to raise panic in a state and defend it with "I didn't bother to read the info about the hurricane before the address I gave about the hurricane".

    Ross crossed the line. What else is new for this administration? Throwing out people from the Bahamas for being rescued without a visa?

    (checks news)

    God dammit I was being sarcastic!

    We need an act that appoints a "Science" admin (something like the Federal Reserve) that is legitimately free from politics.

    Actually let's look into that a little closer.

    Since meeting with officials from the Mexican government 3 months ago, border apprehensions have gone down by 56%! Mexico has done more to secure our border than Democrats in Congress. It’s time for Congress to step up to help secure our border and keep Americans safe!
    Our hearts are with all of those affected by Hurricane Dorian in North Carolina and down the coast. Thank you FEMA for the briefing and update today in NC. We will continue to work with federal and local officials to provide aid to everyone in need.
    The #USMCA is a trade deal America’s farmers, ranchers and manufacturers deserve! As Congress returns to session, I urge members to put their constituents first and make passing the #USMCA a top priority!
    90 days ago, Mexico agreed to step up their efforts to stop illegal immigration into the US. Looking forward to meeting with Mexican gov officials tomorrow to talk about their recent efforts & discuss ways we can continue to secure the border. There is still more work to do!
    The United States stands without apology for a strong, prosperous, and free United Kingdom and we fully support their decision to leave the European Union. Thank you Prime Minister BorisJohnson for a great visit!
    "Wait, Pence went to London?"

    Yeah, right after Trump attacked it, it was kinda awkward I'm sure.

    Anyhow read those above posts. Now read this one.

    That’s Absolutely Right Mr. President. More Fake News! The Dishonest Media never contacted our office before running with this story and if they had, we would have told them I FULLY support your decision.
    See anything different? Pence's usual tweets have correct capitalization on proper nouns, allcaps on acronyms, and they're typically courteous or positive. I mean, yeah, he has some exclamations! so you could read them aloud in Trump's voice and might struggle, but written, they're clearly different. That last one doesn't fit very well.

    Now if you scroll through the last XXX you'll see another:

    President @realDonaldTrump told me to tell Prime Minister @BorisJohnson that when Brexit is complete, we will begin negotiations on a free-trade deal IMMEDIATELY! Our message is clear: the minute the UK is Out, the US is In!
    Again, seems more Trump than Pence. But that's it for the next 10, 20, 100 for all I care. No really, just keep scrolling. He's remarkably consistent.

    "Say Breccia, while scrolling through what must be the 'Thank God' after 'Thank God' after -- "

    Yeah, he says that a lot.

    "Did you happen to see something from Aug 31 about Dorian?"

    Of course I did. This retweet:

    At 2 pm Sat Hurricane Dorian was 385 mi E of West Palm Beach FL with max winds of 150 mph, moving to the west at 8 mph. While confidence is increasing that Dorian will turn toward the north, there is much uncertainty regarding the specific track and impacts for FL, GA, SC and NC
    "Hmm. I don't see AL on that list."

    AL is not on that list, from NWS Eastern Region, on Aug 31, you are correct.

    "Did you see any maps or projections?"

    A few, including this one:



    "Huh. That doesn't seem to touch Alabama at all."

    Neither did this:



    He also posted this, which again, is the best evidence so far of a "beat down":



    "Did you see anything else?"

    Yes, but, I'll leave that as an exercise to the reader.

    So at worst it's tickling Alabama?

    Just a reminder, falsifying weather reports is a federal crime (18 U.S. Code § 2074.False weather reports). Not that anyone in the Justice Department cares...

    5-10% of storm force winds. So, yeah, basically tickling. Not a "beat down". The text accompanying the picture does not say "Alabama" though it does mention the other states.

    Plus, again, those are from Aug 31. Trump said something Sept 1. His own VP showed him the data and he disregarded it.

    This is a good tweet below and besides this administration serving a authoratarian type figure by threatening government employees. You then just step back and realize just another Trump eff-up this is.

    You sort of have to respect this administration's ability to take one fleeting moment of idiocy and turn it into a full-fledged government scandal.

    Hey @Breccia, just wanted to give you a heads up that #PresidentPussyAssBitch and #PresidentPAB are trending on Twitter thanks to Trump's mistake of crossing Chrissy Teigen. Another one for the nickname bucket.

    Oh, apparently so is #TalibanTraitorTrump.

    Delenda Est.

    It should be #TalibanTraitorPence as he's the one who sent that last tweet. Yeah, I know I said it looked liked Trump's handwriting, but that's an official VP statement. Even if he didn't write it, if he signs it, he owns it.

    Also: "good" news for Trump, in that measles cases have been slowing for the last few months.

    "Yeah! MAGA!"

    Indeed, Trump now holds the following record: most measles cases since 1992.

    "Ye...really?"

    Yep. Actually, based on his current projection, Trump is on projection to have more measles cases in this year alone, than Obama had total. Even if he doesn't, which this new slower rate suggests he won't, that's not cheerworthy. That's "anti-vaxxer Trump watches as 130 people go to the hospital for disease until recently declared eradicated".

    To add to this, PussyAssBitch isn’t typically visible when you look at trending hashtags on Twitter(apparently profanity is about the worst thing someone can do) so the second hashtag was started.

    Furthermore, it appears that according to the actual view tracking of tags rather than just what is trending by Twitter's metric, the former still has more views and theoretical reblogs than the censored version.

    Life is good, and I shall help myself to a big bowl of schadenfreude drizzled in the knowledge Trump is probably screaming that #TalibanTraitorTrump is trending.

    Delenda Est.

    Another resounded upcoming lie from the Resident Shitstain. Trump to release 'very thorough' financial report before 2020 election. /snort

    Where have we heard this before?

    So, does this mean Trump's going to drop his lawsuit against California over his tax returns?

    Of course not, because he thinks releasing a "very complete" report that basically just says "I'm totally super rich and it's totally legitimate" is good enough and no one needs to see his tax returns.

    I expect something no less exhaustive and complete then his medical report. So now we will all know that he is rich as well as fit and jacked.

    After all, he needs something to put on his Dating Profile, Melania is getting pretty old, it is about time for wife #4.

    Exactly. This orange mental patient is banking on his followers selling this for him.

    Why does he need a dating profile? I'm sure one of the generic conservative blonde women on Fox news would be willing.

    He prefers to outsource everything. His shirts, hats, ties, wives.
