Pentagon "Mistakenly" Retweets Post Calling For Trump To Resign

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.

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.

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?

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.

he is not actually making contact with said boobage 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.
