Another day, another round of everyone with a brain wondering how much lower the president can sink with his un-presidential tweets. The latest is an edited video of “45” inflicting violence on his favorite enemy, the “liberal media” (recently he’s singled out Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski for particular scorn) all weekand an obvious attempt to intimidate any truth-telling journalists(we’re not going to post it as we have standards). The president kept the caption on his tweet simple (he’s not one for using educated vocabulary words), saying simply “#FraudNewsNetwork” and “#FNN.” Immediately, civilized human beings, ranging from Mia Farrow to George Takei, tweeted their horrified responses. Below read some of our favorites.
