Pentagon "Mistakenly" Retweets Post Calling For Trump To Resign

Tyler Durden's picture

Defense Secretary James Mattis will get an earful from his boss this morning, after an “authorized user” of the Pentagon Twitter account retweeted – and then swiftly deleted - a tweet calling for President Donald Trump to resign after the president slammed Sen. Al Franken while remaining silent about Alabama Sen. Candidate Roy Moore.

Pentagon spokesman Col. Rob Manning said in a statement that an authorized operator of the Defense Department's official Twitter site “erroneously retweeted content that would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense. The operator caught this error and immediately deleted it.”

Chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White posted the same statement on Twitter.

The Defense Department account has 5.2 million followers.

President Trump stirred up a late-night controversy of his own Thursday after calling a picture of Al "Frankenstein" groping the breasts of Los Angeles radio host Leeann Tweeden “really bad.”

He also accused Franken on hypocrisy, tweeting: “And to think that just last week he was lecturing anyone who would listen about sexual harassment and respect for women. Lesley Stahl tape?”

The White House’s official position on allegations that Moore had inappropriate sexual contact with at least seven women when they were teenagers – one of whom was just 14 at the time – is that the Alabama voters should decide his fate. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has threatened to expel Moore should he win the seat.

If Gen. Mattis gets an earful, someone else is going to get a new asshole.

Sounds like someone should be mistakenly fired too.......

What law did he/she break?

ReZn8r's picture

absolutely none, turn about is extremely fair play.
Democrats want to spread rumors and prosecute others when no law is broken, we can do the same.

The next 9 years is going to be real fun.

lolzzzz....  Throw someone in jail for a tweet.  You from Zimbabwe?

Assuming the person is uniformed military,  the tweet looks like a violation of the Uniform Code of Military  Justice.

 

It is also a typical false Equivalence.   There are only allegations for Roy Moore,  there are pictures and an admission from Al Franken.   But then logic isn't  a strong suite for these yahoo.

Agreed, if a little girl can get fired for flipping off a motorcade, some dimwit can certainly be fired for being a twit.

Trump should tweet back
“Keep American Great don’t let Pence be president.”

Or in the spirt of Milhouse Nixon
“Pence is my impeachment protection.” (Ref. “Who is Spiro Agnew ?).

I think the photo of Franken boob grabbing is the closest thing we've seen yet that would constitute PROOF.

 Allegations, on the other hand, require proof or at the very least adjudication, or are we just going to bypass that laborious and time consuming process and just allow the media to assign guilt or innocence?

knukles's picture

Allegations and internal special proscutors for the Republicans.
Democrats get off scott free with just a hand job on Jimmy KImmel.

chiswickcat's picture

Although, in the photo it looks like he is not actually making contact with said boobage. More putting his hands near but not ‘on’ just for photo effect. Am I the only one that thinks this was harmless fun as long as no contact was made?

He did it to humilate her for rejecting him.

But no, I'm sure your not the only one.

Plenty of retarded cuntlings on this site.

Oldwood's picture

Well, I always thought it was fun, but evidently EVERYTHING is different now. People have reached such levels of hypersensitivity today we find ourselves pushed into a corner of political correctness that will simply shut down communication?. Tired of the entire shit of constant incriminations.....but Frankel can fuck his self.

This isn't hypersensitive, this is bitches gaming marks.

That pot has been calling the kettle black for some time. A taste of his own medicine is in order. I have no sympathy for this rabid idealogue.

Your right, but this is a Jew with their known predilection for shtooping the shiksas.  It is a form of ingroup warfare against the Goyim, and hence the Jew must be held to a higher standard.  Maybe not higher, but different standard.  There are professions and areas that used to be off limits to Jews, especially during middle ages under Catholic rule, and in Byzantium under Justinian.  

Not being able to influence Goy children or their culture would be one of those off-limits areas, where destroyers are denied access.

After Weinstein judas goat affair, having more judas goats is diverting attention from ((their)) parasitism in other sectors of the economy, especially that of depraved hollywood.  So, we are now seeing a lot of sexual misconduct allegations - and no doubt, some of these allegations will be women who are lying.

Yog Soggoth's picture

Exactly, and that is why Moore can deny, and Franken could not. Now Franken has to shut up about fake news and pretending to be morally superior.

The same government that neglects to submit wife and child beating records on a mass killer preventing an atrocity....

UndertheDRADIS's picture

I have noticed that almost every one of the mass shootings could have been prevented by a government agency. The only one I have seen was the Las Vegas shooter, which makes the outlier a question in itself.

WTF does the "pentagon" need with a twitter account? It's like the whole government is a giant kindergarten class.

insanelysane's picture

EXACTLY!  What are they tweeting?  Troop movements?  Arms shipments?  Body counts?  They do not need a twitter account.  Fucking ridiculous.

You would think they would put someone other than Chelsea Manning in charge of their twitter account.
