Donald Trump in new attack on Sadiq Khan with Katie Hopkins retweet

Source: The Guardian

Donald Trump has retweeted the British far-right commentator Katie Hopkins and launched another attack on Sadiq Khan.

Referring to a message from Hopkins that the Met’s Twitter account had been targeted by hackers on Friday night, in which she said officers had “lost control of London streets” and “lost control of their Twitter account too”, Trump tweeted: “With the incompetent mayor of London, you will never have safe streets!”

It is Trump’s latest move in an ongoing spat with Khan, during whichhe called the London mayor a “national disgrace” and “stone cold loser”, comments dismissed by the London mayor as childish.

Minutes before his latest jibe against Khan, Trump retweeted videos posted by Hopkins that supported the US president’s recent racist attacks on four US congresswomen.

2. t-rump is getting his arse kicked . . .

t-rump is relying on hatred and the help of foreign countries (Putin, et al.) He is relying on the Republican party's gerrymandering, voter suppression and down right cheating and stealing. He is relying on voting machine tampering. He is relying on that criminal Barr.

t-rump is the most hated person in the WH in recent times. He is hated around the world. Vote him out.

4. Good God in Butter. When does this all stop?

Trump has stuck numerous cities and towns through out the nation with big bills
that he or the campaign never paid and now he is picking a fight w/the Mayor of
London?

Trump is deeply mentally ill and is lapsing into greater and greater dementia.

5. Hopkins is most infamous for a tweet calling for "a final solution" after the Manchester bomb

Katie Hopkins leaves LBC radio show after 'final solution' tweet

Hopkins hosted a weekly show on LBC on Sundays. A spokesman for the broadcaster said: “LBC and Katie Hopkins have agreed that Katie will leave LBC effective immediately.” The station refused to confirm or deny that Hopkins had been sacked, or give details of the severance. Asked for further details, a spokesman said: “That’s all we’re saying.”

There were “massive cheers and applause” from former colleagues in the newsroom after confirmation was received that she would be leaving, the BBC’s media editor, Amol Rajan, reported.

Hopkins’ tweet, made in the hours after the explosion at Manchester Arena, said: “22 dead – number rising. Schofield. Don’t you even dare. Do not be a part of the problem. We need a final solution Machester [sic].”

Her hatred grew steadily more extreme over the years, forcing The Sun, the Daily Mail and everyone else having to drop her as too extreme even for them (more in that Guardian article). That the White House (Stephen Miller, I expect) follows her just shows what white supremacists they are.

17. Steph Miller or proxies. I don't think anyone within the WH has the abilities

to even flush the toilet, let alone wipe it off after they've missed the mark.

There are some apparently unreported influencers throughout this administration that enjoy causing mayhem.

Back in the w days, it was the xian supposed RW idiots. Ashcroft and the Liberty not-a-university crowd. Perhaps they're still calling the shots?

8. I have a hopeful theory.

Everyone tunes this motherfucker out and wants to get rid of him. Four year term. But who will beat him is the question.

10. There's a reason a majority consider Fat Donnie to be "unpresidential."

Roughly six in ten Americans say his actions are "unpresidential," although 20% of those still think he's doing a good job. Go figure.

13. Someone should dip Fat Donnie's fingers in a bucket of Super Glue

and once they're stuck together, clap his palms together. That should slow down his tweeting for awhile.

And if there's still some glue left, how about slathering it over his lips to shut him up?

16. He'd previously retweeted Britian First's Jayda Fransen nazi tweets.

He trails his hundreds of slimy nazi ties behind him, like a 400 pound orange garden slug. I remember that Little Bird twitter analysis story, that showed tRump kept retweeting top white supremacist twitter accounts, accounts that had the largest number of fellow nazi followers.

"Indeed, the Republican presidential candidate has been widely criticized for retweeting content from white supremacists. Back in January, he shared this post from a user named “WhiteGenocideTM”:

"@WhiteGenocideTM: @realDonaldTrump Poor Jeb. I could've sworn I saw him outside Trump Tower the other day! pic.twitter.com/e5uLRubqla"

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 22, 2016


He retweeted another white supremacist in February, this time sharing content from a user whose bio reads “#WhiteGenocide is real.” Just last month, he retweeted a supporter who writes about “white nationalism and genocide.” Similar incidents have occurred at least a half-dozen times, and most of the tweets in question have not been deleted from Trump’s account.

In fact, back in January, Little Bird took a closer look at the most recent 21 people Trump had retweeted, and 62% of them had used the hashtag #WhiteGenocide lately, while 28% of them followed White Nationalist accounts.

(Heavy may be garbling the little bird analysis a bit, but they covered it, at least.)
