‘This clearly shows no collusion!’: Twitter has a field day with photo of Trump holding up a map

Published

on

President Donald Trump, trying to convince reporters in Washington, D.C. that the terrorist organization ISIS (Islamic State, Iraq and Syria) has been defeated under his watch, held up two maps of ISIS territories on Wednesday—and the maps have been inspiring a lot of responses on Twitter.

The maps that Trump held up on the White House South Lawn compared ISIS territory on Election Day 2016 to ISIS territory now. The president told reporters, “This was on election night in 2016. Everything red is ISIS. When I took it over, it was a mess. Now, on the bottom, that’s the exact same; there is no red. In fact, there’s actually a tiny spot which will be gone by tonight.”

Some Twitter users made fun of Trump’s display of the maps by photoshopping other photos. Twitter user @ManInTheHoody, for example, photoshopped the Twitter account “Devin Nunes’ Cow”—a parody account pretending to be written from the perspective of a cow owned by Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California. Instead of holding up two contrasting ISIS maps, Trump is seen holding up the main Twitter page for @DevinCow.

BuzzFeed News’ Toronto-based Elamin Abdelmahmoud posted a photoshopped photo that, instead of the ISIS territory maps, depicted Trump holding up a sign reading, “Kid A is just okay.”

CNN’s Chris Cillizza retweeted a photo of Trump holding up the maps, sarcastically posting that they show “no collusion” (a reference to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation). And Twitter user Neal Pomea, a specialist in Cajun music, posted that Trump is selective when it comes to military intelligence. Pomea said of the ISIS maps comparison, “He seems to trust his generals and our intelligence when it’s flattering to himself! Otherwise, no.”

Twitter user @sunrize601 posted, “FACT: Obama was bombing ISIS the same day Trump took office. Obama removed ISIS from areas until that day, including a large area that exact day.”

Comedian John Roedel, meanwhile, compared Trump holding up the ISIS territories maps to “me giving a book report in 4th Grade.”

Published

on

Following racist attacks on members of The Squad by President Donald Trump and his supporters, a police officer in Louisiana reportedly said that one of the congresswomen of color should be shot.

Trump has been lashing out at the four first-term congresswomen, who include Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

Despite the White House no longer holding daily press briefings, Phillips praised the "access" she receives from the administration.

"No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access ?Trump? gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question," she said.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
