I wasn’t planning to do a Tweets Post at the moment. I’m working on a couple of other more substantial posts that are taking a lot of time. However, there are a few things I want to bring to your attention. They’re not Good Things. They’re WTF things.

As I’ve said before, I’m (very) slowly doing a post about John Bolton. I think Donald Trump is aware that bringing Bolton into the White House is increasing the impression that he’s a warmonger. Despite liking to be seen as the Ultimate Tough Guy, he’s not so keen on the moniker “warmonger”. It appears he’s doing something about it. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when this came on my screen. This is what you get when you try and do the right thing and learn other points of view!

Trumpy Bear!

This, dear readers, is the ‘Trumpy Bear Official Commercial’. I thought this was going to turn out to be some sort of left-wing mockery of Trump. But no. It’s real!

 

 

Third Month Mania

A new video has come out from The Daily Show to encourage people to vote in the final of ‘Third Month Mania’. You can find my take on that here if you haven’t already read it. There are three days left to vote, so be quick. It only takes a few seconds, and you can vote here.

 

 

Some Americans are Ignorant and Proud: Flat Earth Edition

This is a YouTube channel I’ve just found: Some Americans are Ignorant and Proud. This is video #127, so they’ve been around a while. I watched a couple of their other videos and I think they’re pretty funny, but I may have a warped sense of humour.

This recent video is dedicated to flat-earthers. Take note of the guy from around 3.30 on, who uses a model plane and globe to demonstrate “… the simplest irrefutable flat earth truth.” He earlier declares that everything he learnt in school after the sixth grade was a waste of time.

There’s some good stuff from Neil deGrasse Tyson in there too, especially right at the end.

 

Some memes you’ve probably all seen before …

Education Tweets

In honour of the stupid theme, here’s a tweet of mine.

 

Scott Pruitt

Scott Pruitt is the subject of a lot of discussion in the comments on the last post, so I thought I’d post these recent cartoons about him:

Pruitt Compost cartoon

Pruitt No Ethics cartoon

Pruitt $50/night DC bed cartoon

Pruitt New Auto Emission Rules cartoon

 

Political Tweets

And since we’re on the subject of politics, I have to include Political Tweets.

 

 

This article by Madeleine Albright is one I highly recommend.

This is good …

Sinclair Media Tweets

Due to Sinclair Media being in the news, they’ve been a favourite topic of the political cartoonists in the last few days.

 

 

Human Rights Tweets

A man got a rejection slip for his manuscript from a female publisher. He went berserk on Twitter, deciding there was #MisandryInPublishing. There’s a pic of one of his tweets in this tweet:

There were quite a few hilarious response to his outburst, but really, it boils down to this …

 

You may think this belongs in the Political Tweets section, but I want to separate it from politics in the way John Pavlovitz has. This is about something much deeper and more important. The Trump presidency is doing enormous damage to the fabric of US society. The divisions were already there before Trump became president, but now they’re laid bare. I urge you all to read the article in the link of this tweet. In fact, to make it easier, just click here.

Scenic Tweets

I’ve never come across these before. Very cool looking buildings!

 

I wish this went on longer – I could just sit here and watch it for ages.

 

London’s had such an amazing history for centuries. It would be so interesting to visit during any of them. (Well maybe not during the Blitz or when plague was raging!)

 

Just … WOW!!!

 

Food Tweets

This looks delicious!

 

Lego Tweets

A Jedi master by a Lego master!

Insect Tweets

Now you know …

 

Other Animals Tweets

I challenge you to watch this without a tear coming to your eye!

 

It’s Ratty!

 

I’m not sure how they know it’s smiling, but I’ll take their word for it …

 

Bird Tweets

Another nice rescue from the lovely people at Wildlife Aid.

 

The latest news on what’s going on at Slimbridge. It’s not just birds – there’s news on the frogs and toads too. Slimbridge is on my list of places I have to visit if I ever get to England.

 

A chilled out kookaburra.

 

Woops!

 

Dog Tweets

Here’s a real  feel good story …

 

So cute!!!

 

I’ve seen this before, but it’s so cool. He clearly loves it. His wee tail wags all the way down.

 

Cat Tweets

What a cool cat!

 

Awww … poor things.

 

It’s not just the kookaburra that’s chilled out!

 

What love looks like. 💕
