Trump Complains About ‘Worst Fake News’ As He Returns To Washington From Vacation

President Donald Trump recently returned from a two week summer vacation at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. But by the looks of his Twitter feed, the time off hasn’t helped the President relax much. On Sunday, President  Trump took to Twitter to slam the mainstream media, which he calls “fake news” for being the “most dishonest Fake News reporting [he has] ever seen.”

The tweet most likely refers to the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville the previous week, and the controversy that has surrounded it. President Trump was initially slow to reply to the violent clashes between white nationalists and counter protesters, which generated much criticism.

Politicians like Senator Ted Cruz took to Twitter to condemn the “hatred and racism” of groups like “the Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists.” Trump’s own daughter, Ivanka Trump, said on Twitter that there is “no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis.” 

But Trump initially responded by saying that “many sides” were to blame for the violence. A White House statement later called out specific groups like the KKK. Only for Trump to later take to Twitter and seemingly call for Confederate statues to be left in place. 

And then this weekend, President Trump again took to Twitter to condemn 40,000 counter protesters who took to the streets of Boston on Saturday to protest a “free speech” rally featuring far-right speakers, which had attracted around 100 participants.

The same day, President Trump took to Twitter once again to praise the counter protesters. 

President Trump’s back and forth on the issue earned him praise from the likes of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke on Twitter. 

While his comment on “fake news” seems to have indicated to journalists that they’re doing their jobs well.

The Great American Eclipse is happening NOW, people (or it already happened. I don’t know when you’re reading this!).

Or all the Twilight jokes.

Or when people noticed how weird all this eclipse fashion was.

Barack Obama Is Completely Destroying President Trump On Twitter

If he isn’t tweeting “official policy,” he’s mocking his political adversaries or crying “fake news,” and eliciting hundreds of thousands of likes in the process.

But if he thought he had the title of “Most Popular Twitter Celebrity” all wrapped up, he just got a rude awakening.

Former President Barack Obama responded to the Charlottesville protest with a tweet that quickly went viral,  amassing more likes than any tweet in history:

Apparently, Obama has six of the ten most-liked tweets of all time. Trump isn’t even on the list. Other top tweeters include Ariana Grande, Ellen DeGeneres, Linkin Park, and Hillary Clinton.

Obama is also way ahead of Trump in terms of followers, with nearly 94 million, compared to about 36 million for Trump.

In a breakdown of followers, according to TwitterAudit.com, a vast majority of Trump’s followers are bots:

Poster Featuring Martin Luther King Jr. And Donald Trump Takes Internet By Storm

[unable to retrieve full-text content]

The thought-provoking image is by a Haitian artist.

With the recent reemergence of emboldened hate groups spewing their rhetoric all over public forums online and in society, many are drawing parallels to the civil rights era of the 1950s and 60s.

Much of the blame for the recent rise in overt racism has been put on President Trump, who, after the deadly protest in Charlottesville, was hesitant to denounce the racist and white nationalist fringe groups responsible, and instead blamed both sides.

So who better to silence Trump than famed civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.:

The powerful image had many wondering who the artist was:

It turns out the artwork is by Haitian artist Watson Mere, and is entitled My Brother’s Keeper:

Incredibly enough, Mere’s artwork is all done on Microsoft Paint, and, according to his website, he “finds inspiration from the love, struggles, happiness, and pain of the people of the African diaspora. Each piece is designed to spark the viewer’s imagination as to interpret the work of art that stands before them. With the screen as his canvas and the mouse as his “brush,” Watson meticulously transforms social issues like race, poverty, and religion into extraordinarily rare and unique works of art. This is his passion.”

You can see some of Mere’s artwork in this video:

And while some didn’t care for the wording of the tweet, they still believed the image was worth sharing:

Perhaps there’s still hope:

Video Of Hillary Clinton Accurately Warning America About Trump And White Supremacy Re-Emerges Online

As the nation grows ever more divided, with President Trump emboldening hate groups by not expressly condemning them after the deadly protest in Charlottesville, a voice of reason has emerged.

Unfortunately for us, however, that voice is from a year ago, when Hillary Clinton attempted to warn voters of the dangers of electing Donald Trump.

In a video that has reemerged and gone viral, Clinton explains exactly the circumstances we find ourselves in at the moment:

Actress Marlee Matlin Writes Tweet, Gets Unfollowed By All Trump Family Members

Academy-award winner Marlee Matlin was recently unfollowed by the whole Trumpclanfamily.

The actor and advocate for the deaf community was unfollowed because of this tweet she posted earlier this week:

How do we know they all unfollowed her? Well, there is a Twitter bot that actually tracks the follows and unfollows of the Trump accounts. Because, of course there is.

Needless to say, supporters had Matlin’s back. 

They all followed her BECAUSE the Trumps unfollowed her.*

I think that’s beautiful! 

(*Also, as someone born with only 50% of their hearing, I admit this got me a little teary-eyed.)

But, this message will really make you smile!

Here is a bit more detail about the unfollowing heard ’round the world:

Since Ms. Matlin dealt with worse on “The Apprentice,” and still followed them on Twitter, hard to believe she’s that petty.

Do I think the Trump offspring are that petty?

I mean, consider the source!

Thank you, Marlee for your courage in the face of ignorance!

President Trump Somehow Denies Doing Exactly What He Is Doing—While He Is Doing It

On Tuesday, Donald Trump stood before reporters and, live on video, drew a moral equivalence between white supremacists and the counter-protestors defending the rights of minorities. We know this is what he did because, as mentioned, he was on camera and we all watched him do it. 

Many people took to Twitter to condemn Trump for his remarks. Prominent among them was Republican Senator Lindsey Graham:

As he does, Trump wasted no time hitting back against Graham on Twitter.

Trump, of course, denied drawing any moral equivalence between the two groups (a bald-faced lie) and claimed Graham was obsessed with the 2016 elections (projection much?)

As more and more Republicans condemn Trump, it’s causing Trump to add more and more Republicans to his enemies list. 

Although he seems to have missed one…

If Trump doesn’t want to inspire the disdain of most of the country, including many in his own party, perhaps he should think twice about melting down on live television as he did this week. Just a pro-tip for ya, Donnie!

James Woods Tries To Slam Liberals For Tearing Down Racist Statues—It Didn’t Go So Well

James Woods Tries To Slam Liberals For Tearing Down Racist Statues—It Didn’t Go So Well

The “Ghosts of Mississippi” actor attacked “#liberals” by suggesting the removal of the Iwo Jima World War II memorial.

James Woods is furious over the removal of Confederate statues around the country. 

And to express his disgust, the actor, who is well known for his far right politics, suggested on Twitter that liberals may go after the famed Iwo Jima Memorial next.

Cue the Internet, which turned its mocking meme generation to eleven by offering up suggestions of other statues liberals might want to take down. No monument was safe, regardless of what they stood for.

Thank you, James Woods, for giving birth to the “I thought some of you might like to see it one more time…” meme.

Service with a smile? Sorry, Bob’s gotta go.

Wiggling french fries are a disgrace to the food industry. 

What’s the point? 

The Fonz should not be in bronze.

Too high to get over, too low to get under. 

Users also weighed in on the idiocy of the actor’s much maligned tweet. 

When one user took to Twitter to defend keeping the statues, he got schooled with some facts.

Some perspective.

This Marine revealed the logical flaw at the heart of Woods’s tweet.

But hey, we’re not out of the “Woods” yet, here’s one last meme for good measure.

The Internet Made Film Titles British And Just Try Keeping A Stiff Upper Lip About Them

Need a good distraction from the horrible news? Check out the delightful results of Twitter’s attempt to make movies more British using the hashtag #makeafilmtotallyBritish.

You know how British accents make people seem smarter, funnier, and better-looking? It apparently works the same way with movies.

And honestly, I think some of these movies should actually get made.

Even the ones that are already really British.

But please, if just one of these movies actually gets made: let it be a remake of Face/Off starring Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

Trump Tries To Delete Violent And Controversial Retweet, But Keith Olbermann Has The Receipts

On Tuesday, August 15th, just three days after a white supremacist drove his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one woman and injuring at least 19 others, President Donald Trump retweeted an image of a train running over a man with the CNN logo superimposed over his face. 

Perhaps realizing that sharing this cartoon days after such a public tragedy was even more unacceptable than it normally would be (which, in a normal world, would be completely unacceptable,) the President then deleted the re-tweet. 

Before he pulled it, however, many of the Trump’s critics, including Keith Olbermann, captured the image and are now spreading this glimpse into the President’s psyche across the Internet.

Twitter users were disgusted.

One Twitter user noticed an important detail.

Others posed an interesting legal question…

Interestingly, Trump’s tweets ARE considered Presidential records, so deleting them is definitely illegal. However, during Barack Obama’s presidency, a system was put in place that automatically records all tweets, even the deleted ones, which would fulfill the law’s mandate that all of Trump’s records are kept in tact. However HOWEVER, if the President tweets things from his personal account rather than his official POTUS account, it’s unclear whether the White House system is recording them. So, basically, there’s a lot of details that would need to get ironed out before we know whether Trump has committed an illegal act.

Legal or illegal, at the very least Trump’s tweet displays his hypocrisy and true callousness in the wake of a terrible American tragedy.
