  • Netanyahu RESPONDS To Trump On Twitter; World Should Be Mortified (TWEETS)


    Over the course of Donald Trump’s campaign towards the White House, we’ve witnessed him used Twitter as a means to get his messaging across. His often misspelled and unchecked tweets have been the subject of scrutiny.

    Besides the fact that he’s been trying to negotiate Defense Department spending amongst other things via Twitter, now he’s literally tweeting foreign leaders, and we all should be mortified.

    In a tweet Tuesday morning, at the same moment Secretary of State John Kerry is discussing Israel and Palestine, and the fragile diplomatic dance that has been for decades, Trump decides to tweet:

    “We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!”

    And just when you thought you could brush Trump’s tweets to the back of your mind as being the ridiculous bullsh*t that they usually are, you get a stark reminder that he is, in fact, the president-elect, and his tweets are having very real world consequences.

    It what can only be seen as some sort of bizarre Twitter diplomacy that is entirely unmitigated, Trump’s tweet reached Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. We know this because he responded:

    “President-elect Trump, thank you for your warm friendship and your clear-cut support for Israel! “

    If you’re fearful of what this means, you’re not alone. Trump is literally now playing with the big kids, and he has absolutely no idea what he is doing. Netanyahu and Russia’s Vladimir Putin are playing Trump like a fiddle and it’s so obvious it’s infuriating. And why the hell are Trump’s kids mentioned in the tweet? That is highly suspect.

    We’re in for a dangerously bumpy ride in the coming months.
