Kelly Loses Control Again As Trump Retweets, Then Deletes, User Calling Him A Fascist

Tyler Durden's picture

Judging by this morning's presidential twitter blooper reel we can only assume that General Kelly didn't make the trip to New York City with President Trump last night.

Trump's latest unforced error came when he attempted to retweet a Fox & Friends story which said that he was considering a presidential pardon for former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  Unfortunately, he inadvertently retweeted someone's response to the story who had called Trump a fascist.

 

Meanwhile, in just the latest bad news for Twitter shareholders, it seems as though Trump has cost the company another user.

 

For those who missed it, Trump told Fox News over the weekend that he was "seriously considering" a pardon for Sheriff Joe Arpaio after he was found guilty of criminal intent for refusing to suspend traffic patrols that intentionally targeted immigrants.  Per The Hill:

Trump told Fox News he is "seriously considering" a pardon for Arpaio, the former sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz.

 

Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt last month after he was ordered to stop racially profiling Latinos in his Maricopa County office.

 

“I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Trump told Fox News at his Bedminster, N.J., golf club, where he had been staying during a vacation.

 

“He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.”

 

The former sheriff endorsed Trump last year and appeared with him on the campaign trail.

Meanwhile, there was also this now-deleted retweet from President Trump this morning that apparently triggered alot of folks.

 

Seems as though General Kelly is urgently needed at the Trump residence in Trump Tower.

Tweet On Trump, Tweet On ...

Nothing wrong with a president that mistakenly hits the wrong button every once in a while...

Trump's tweeting has done wonders to break the back of the Leftist MSM

barndoor's picture

Most people here here mocked Obama for using a teleprompter, but Trump has not really seen any loss of support among his base for all his inane tweeting (similar to that of my 13 year old niece). 

I wonder what could explain this difference in attitude?

you're comparing rehearsed lies to adlib fuckups

What about a POTUS who is so stupid he could fuck-up the lord's prayer?

Lots of people can ad lib successfully - Robin Williams comes to mind.  Different line of work than the POTUS, and Trump is no good at it in any event.

"you're comparing rehearsed lies to adlib fuckup"

What about rehearsed fuck-ups?  Like his PROMISE to repeal and replace Obamacare?  

I heard that one a dozen times.  He said it was going to be SO EASY.

O,bamacare doesn't need votes because it willi  self implode very soon.

barndoor's picture

"O,bamacare [sic] doesn't need votes because it willi [sic] self implode very soon"

I don't necessarily disagree this this but, if this is true, why did Trump make this a central platform of his campaign?  

Why didn't he simply say "Obamacare is going to implode and I'll be there to help create something better when it does."  Nothing wrong with that - it would have been the smart thing to do.  

Instead, he PROMISED to repeal and replace.  He said it was going to be SO EASY.  The stuff about Obamacare imploding only came along after he failed to do what he promised.

Kind of a low info poster.  Trump tried.  He even told Congress they should stay in town and finish the deal beflore heading off on vacation for a month.  That ball is in their court, not his.

Kidbuck's picture

Complete bull shit. Trump said, at every rally, that Obuttfuck care was imploding and would continue do so.

Huh, the President doesn't repeal legislation...Congress does. He'll sign it into law but that's as far as his responsibility goes.

 

Thread derailer. ShareBlue.

barndoor's picture

I know.  You should tell this to Trump, becuase he's the one who promised to do it over and over agian.  Dozens of times.

That was kinda my point...

barndoor, you keep beating a dead horse. It won't get up and work for you. Get a new horse.

The horse I'm interested in is alive and in office.

The teleprompter issue is so much worse because he is sooo horrible at it, probably because the words on it are bigger than his usual vocabulary.  Sad!

He needs a new twitter-prompter instead.

"Great post. Very, very great. Huge. You are a patriot." - Donald J. Trump.

To be fair to President Trump, using a prompter is hard.  There's a knack to it and it has to be developed by practice.  When done badly, the presenter comes across terribly.  Some presenters do far better with a printed paper script, or notecards.  

Former President George W. Bush has rather severe dyslexia, and had in-ear prompters where somebody read his speeches to him.  That's why he had such an odd speaking cadence; he was listening to keywords and phrases being read to him between chunks of verbiage.

I know this because I arrange prompting, among other things, for high-end presentations.  And one of the prompter operators I use whenever I can prompts regularly for heads of state.  I don't believe he's worked for President Trump yet, but no doubt he will.  And he wouldn't tell me until after President Trump has left the White House, anyway, as he didn't tell me about President G.W. Bush until after 1/20/09, either.  He did tell me President G.H.W. Bush was a class act while he was in office.

Sorry, thats not a horse, its a jackass.

Flatchestynerdette's picture

He did promise it "over and over [sic] agian" based on the past 6 years of votes in the GOP Senate & same for the House. He rightly thought that those boobs actually wanted to get rid of it instead of using the issue as false advertisng to gin up campaign contributions. So I can't fault Trump for either saying it would be easy to get rid of Ocare or thinking it would be done fast. He's got lousy teammates that want perfection in every bill! But try getting it passed their fractured moderate/conservative/taxed-enough-already factions & it bogs down. Instead look at the dems who never saw a bill that they didn't like, even crappy ones where they vote yes and then go back to fix later, expanding them with more gov't control.

Trump has no control over the Senate's 52 senators as was seen by the healthcare vote where John McCain came back from death to keep the healthcare bill alive for 3 days only to put his thumb down like Nero at the games to smile as he watched it all burn down b/c he's a certifiable loon & wanted to be president instead of Trump. That was a total asshat move on McCain's part.  Then there's the Alaskan Senator who was a write in candidate for her state b/c she never won the GOP primary and she's not beholden to the GOP. Maine's idea of a republican is a blue dog democrat masquerading as a republican for 3 reasons - support for the 2nd Amendment and trade pacts for their lobster, plus military.

I know that's a long explanation, when some prefer a fortune cookie version but its why Trump can't pass Ocare reform like he promised.

 

barndoor's picture

So Trump assumed that Congress was an efficient and well-functioning institution that doesn't play any political games or engage in political rhetoric?

What a dumb-ass!

Well, if his own party supported him like ALL Presidents have beem in the past, it would have been repealed.

Wake the fuck up douchebag. All the blame lies at the RINO led GOP, not with Trump.

Wake the fuck up?  You're still talking Red vs. Blue party nonsense.  It's ONE party, and you're not invited....unless you have an army or a trillion in derivatives.

He's blaming Trump who isn't responsible for this. That's the point. Try to keep up with his pathetic argument.

Syrin's picture

Except he didn't.   His main platform was the wall and draining the swamp, neither one of which has he done.   Want to pick on him, then pick on him for what he actually ran on.

Arpaio is in jail because he proved Obama's birth certificate is a forgery.

Exactly. Why waste time arguing with leftards, when the issue is so obvious? The ninth circuit court is the most corrupt, outdated mechanism in the USA, and all the western states including Guam/ Marianas are sick of their crap. Hawai'i is compltely under control of this entity which allowed Obama the fake presidency,)but not without murder). Sheriff Joe was doing his job. The argument that guy put out had no validity because the driver of the so-called murder car was a jewish Obama supporter who pretended to be a white supremacist. More desperation from the would be communist dictators. Here in Florida we have roughly 1260 miles of coastline to protect. That does not include the land border. This is no easy job for border States. Add interference from criminals, and what you have here ...  is a failure to communicate.

ReturnOfDaMac's picture

He is in jail because he broke the law. No one is above the law. He was not exceptional.

El Vaquero's picture

He shouldn't have promised that, and you should have studied civics more. 

truth_bombs's picture

You do know - despite all your friends, family and clergy in the MSM telling you otherwise - that Trump is not a dictator who can repeal then sign a new law into effect, don't you?

 

Trump has been pushing for repeal and replace since day 1.  Your friends in Congress...John McCain, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowskia and the entire Democrat elected body are the people who are responsible for the inability for Trump to make good on this promise.

 

But listen pal, Trump is still President and his term is not over and Obamacare is a miserable disaster.  You know as well as I do that this promise will be filfilled but you are only interested in rabble rousing.

Wake up 'LieDroplets'...Trump is SAYING he is for repeal, knowing the JEW RUN CONGRESS ISN'T GOING TO.....

It is easy. Could be done next week using off the shelf plans that have been used for decades.

Healthcare insurance costs could be reduced by 77% (OMB finding)

Overall healthcare costs could be reduced 90% with improved quality & availability. At the same time, those who just can't afford to pay themselves, could be covered with zero costs to them.

We're being royally screwed over folks. Most of your dollars don't go for care, they go to sleezebag middlemen. The ultimate objective after theyve robbed you blind is a nationalized system which they can use to control every aspect of your lives . . .and ultimately how you die. I knew Bernie Sanders is a moron, he's also apparently a P.O.S. since he's pushing Commie Medical.

But Trump is great when he goes to visit all 57 states.  And Trumpo actually likes the Marine Corpse (yes, mis-spelled to Dear Leader Obama's pronunciation - dead person). "You didn't build that." Dear Leader Obama was always a disaster when he wasn't reading his script.  When he was reading his script he was scary.
