One of President Donald Trump’s adult children once again found themselves as the punchline on Twitter on Friday.

Eric Trump, an executive VP at the Trump Organization, lashed out at Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos after one of his employees received a polite and professional message from Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Fahrenthold.

In the email, Fahrenthold began by apologizing for the interruption. He then introduced himself, saying he just wanted the employee to have his contact information.

Fahrenthold explained that they could talk without the employee being cited by name in a story, and explained how to safely contact the newspaper.

Although Fahrenthold’s message was so professional it could be used by journalism professors as a best practices example, Eric Trump attacked the “tactics.”

Eric Trump was brutally mocked online for his tweet.

GOP lawmakers buried for meltdown over Biden appointee’s ‘mean tweets’ after years of Trump Twitter insults

Published

On Tuesday morning, the panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" expressed both amusement and disgust with Republican lawmakers who are claiming one of President-elect Joe Biden's nominees may have a tough time being approved because she has a history of writing "mean tweets" about their actions and policies.

As host Joe Scarborough observed, those same lawmakers just spent four years either defending -- or pretending they were unaware -- of Donald Trump's habit of slurring and attacking his opponents or detractors on Twitter.

At issue are tweets that were written by Neera Tanden who is currently president of the Center for American Progress and has been nominated by the incoming president to head up the Office of Management and Budget.

Trump demands GOP Georgia governor ‘call off’ election in new Twitter outburst

Published

on

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted a new demand for Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) to "do something" and overturn the results of the election. Specifically, Trump wants him to "check signatures and count signed envelopes" and then "call off [the] election" because "It won't be needed" — presumably meaning call off the Georgia Senate runoffs because the "real" vote count would show Republicans won outright.

Do something @BrianKempGA. You allowed your state to be scammed. We must check signatures and count signed envelopes against ballots. Then call off election. It won’t be needed. We will all WIN! https://t.co/UiJrlyBGiK
