how so for security? Whne they use a dedicated computer for twitter posting only. Or a dedicated telephone, that is not used to activate the football or something the risk should be rather low. At maximum a russian hacker could tweet crazy stuff on Twitter.

I'm not sure what they use and if it is dedicated or not. But your post gave me a funny thought. There is always white house photographers that document the presidencies through photos. I can see kids in 20 years reading a history book with a candid photo of Trump scrunched up with a smart phone, and a caption below it that reads, "45th president making what was colloquially known as a Shitpost"

 

 

Donald jr.: Moooooom! Daddy is shitposting on Twitter again!

OP's pic is so unbelievably tone-deaf at a time when women prove to be a decisive demographic for elections - I did not see that coming.

 

The whole theatre and attention around that woman is nothing but evidence that the right wing in America thinks she's got huge potential as a politician.

That's the only motivation for going into such a high gear with the character assassination campaign that quick.

Such character assassination campaigns have become reflexive since at the latest the success of swiftboating. It doesn't even take a memo any more; a rising star on the left leads to automatic attacks of certain kinds. Sadly, the attacks are nowhere limited to actually good political points about the target's platform. Laymen-produced attacks such as OP picture are often particularly primitive, even -as in this case- nothing but an expression of hate and disrespect.

 

If only I knew how to keep such acid political culture away from my country. It appears that extreme right wingers (a.k.a. neonazis and neonazis in disguise) seem to have picked up a lot already (and the established media are hapless in face of it if not entirely irrelevant).

Trump is a piece of shit there is no doubt. But is he a piece of shit like Obama whose aided Iran to bring drugs onto the American streets through one of its terrorist proxies, (...)

Oh boy, where does that nonsense come from? Some chain e-mail?

 

edit: Forget about that. I looked this nonsense up myself. Seems as if a Politico hit piece is behind this.

Here's a neutral appraisal of said hit piece:

https://www.lawfareblog.com/hezbollah-drugs-and-obama-administration-closer-look-damning-politico-piece

 

This is nowhere near the certainty of either Bush lying about Iraq to go to war (Saddam wasn't really about to invade Saudi-Arabia in '90).

The Obama-Hezbollah-Iran story is much more likely a planted smear by certain anti-Iran interests.

 

 

Tip: If you want to condemn Obama, condemn him for his assassination of a U.S.citizen or for the many tolerated 'collateral damage' killed children and uninvolved people who were killed by drone strikes. You can easily paint Obama as a war criminal (Geneva Convention) without any very unlikely conspiracy theory. (Same as almost all U.S. presidents since FDR, I think.)

I half expect her to run for President in 2020 and then win, whereupon the Dems dare the rest of us not to let her be sworn in (Constitution is a living document and all that...). You may laugh, but you know the establishment Republicans would cave.

 

And on cue, some on the Left are saying we should change the Constitution because it discriminates against young people running for president and we NEED her to run.

Looking around the net, Trump fans getting worked up over stupid tweets by AOC is just comedy gold. :D

Is it so much getting worked up, or are they having a good chuckle much like you're having about them? I'm quite sure the latter is the case, but please, if you could see yourself off the high horse, perhaps you might explain why it isn't.

What is it with the denizens of the left that they all want to be something or somebody else? Well, everything other than white male.*

 

*Was clicking through YouTube the other day and came across a video of a young African American woman who was about to reveal her DNA results. She was so happy, this DNA service was going to tell her from what African tribe she was descended through the use of maternal mitochondrial DNA. You should have seen her face when she read, "Shares maternal genetic ancestry with European populations belonging to Haplogroup H." "You mean I'm white?"

 

You go, Girl. Time to apply for your privilege card. Start at about 5:40

That was my take. Now, about the Palestinians...

Where has she been for the last couple of years, that she would step in with both feet into an Elizabeth Warren-sized minefield? :wacko:

I think that she figures she is Teflon coated since nothing else she has said as a politician has had any lasting consequences. I get the sense, that this may be changing fairly soon and fairly abruptly but then again my political prediction record is pretty dismal.

She's one debate away with someone slightly older and wiser from going only two and out.

I think that depends on if she debates someone who does not pull their punches because they are not scared of getting labeled by the media as racist, sexist, misogynistic, antisemitic..... We saw enough people pull their punches because of those kind of concerns when debating Obama.

Its the echo chamber effect. For probably 10+ years, she has never encountered a differing opinion or position, either in person or in the webosphere.

 

Recall Obama's "clinging to guns and religion" gaffe. Ignorant enough to think it was OK to say to a supportive crowd, and I don't think he ever really grasped the stupidity of it (I'm sure partly due to the sycophancy of his handlers).

 

As with Pelosi, AOC is a gift that will keep on giving for at least two years.

I know you're a tragic case of trying to pretend you still really despise Trump while agreeing with every sentiment of his base that powers him, with the resulting personal sensivity; but when I was saying "looking around the net" I wasn't actually addressing you or any other TankNetter. There are in fact ample examples on the net of people cheering Trump's tweeting as either Speaking The Truth or master trolling, while ridiculing OAC's tweets of the same standard. I suspect the reverse is true, too, whether with or without chuckling in individual cases. ;)

Just because Trump is a knob doesn't mean that the objections and issues of the base aren't correct. The issue with Trump is his pr method mostly. Look at Tim's specific observations here for example.

 

The differences between AOC and Trump is that AOC is pushing socialism and Trump is pushing American ascendancy. The latter doesn't require mass deaths to make a paradise.

 

None of what Tim advocates for US business advantage doesnt require the USMC to invade a country or for blacks to be made into slaves unlike what the left would have people think. Conversely socialism has a very well tested pattern of result. So I think your comparisons are poorly thought out.
