President Trump had a banner morning on Twitter. He tweeted a few things you might expect from any president — boasting about the good economic numbers, reacting to North Korea’s missile test — but then tweeted some things you would expect from only President Trump.
There was this reacting to the cashiering of Matt Lauer and retailing a noxious conspiracy theory about Joe Scarborough:
So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 29, 2017
And three retweets from an account of an official from a fringe party in Britain of videos of Muslims committing acts of violence, one of which is a fake. The British government felt compelled to respond.
It’s all very typical, and also quite bizarre. How out there were the Muslim tweets? As Allahpundit points out, the editor-at-large of Infowars thinks they went too far:
Yeah, someone might want to tell whoever is running Trump’s Twitter account this morning that retweeting Britain First is not great optics.— Paul Joseph Watson (@PrisonPlanet) November 29, 2017
