Burning down the …

It’s sort of apropos that I decided to hold off on this week’s Twitter burns, especially considering that as I write this, I’m back from my EGD, which revealed I have an ulcer … woo hoo! Believe me, it could have been much worse and, bonus, I get to avoid another colonoscopy for now (standing O for that!).

But it wasn’t just my gut that was burning; it was Twitter (and for the past two weeks, since I’m catching up from last week’s burns as well). I can tell you that the Trumpster-divers are already even more insufferable after the Tuesday special elections in South Carolina and Georgia. Which seems to make them even more easily offended. This is gonna be “fun” …

Even though Jon Ossoff didn’t win in the Georgia 6th, he (and his counterpart in South Carolina) cut the victory margin drastically in previously safe red districts. And he got a certain somebody all worked up on Twitter. Thanks, Jon!

Someone has to keep lawyers employed.

Well, they reportedly were registered … just not as Republicans. Oopsy!

Some gave all …

And make their attorneys get attorneys, and their attorneys …

At least that’s what the dossier says …

Lordy, I wish I’d said this.

Don’t know if delusions are covered either. Probably not.

Chuck Schumer lampooned that weird Cabinet meeting/safe space for Donnie, which upset some of the “big” guy’s followers … which resulted in some giggles for me.

Well, sure, every meeting should have the bulk of it taken up by fawning adoration. Because meetings are far too productive.

Of course, it wasn’t just the special elections (more specifically Georgia 6th) and people making fun of him that got Cheeto Jesus’ (and that of his followers) blood boiling. Someone did manage to keep his phone away from him during the Comey testimoney, but all things Comey and Russia have been upsetting him pretty much ’round the clock, and he still believes the media wants him to stop tweeting (um, that’s your lawyers and staff, whose advice you continually ignore). Good times.

I’m seriously considering getting one of these … or maybe there’s a ringtone of Comey saying it …

Is it weird that I can hear him saying that?

Condensation’s just mean!

His is the only reality of which he approves.

Lewis Carroll is shaking his head right now. Even he couldn’t come up with anything this bizarre. But yeah, don’t be a hatter.

I had no idea our weather had a flag …

Preparing for his intweetment … but Twitter will be more boring … though less hateful.

What? Is someone implying Russian espionage? Shocker!

Sounds about right to me.

Or as a letter we just printed said, when our teachers told us anyone could be president, we didn’t take it as a warning. I’d vote for the dog, though. Hell, I’d vote for a howler monkey.

Oh, crap! Nobody saw that, right?

Oh, no, you can’t use something he said on national television!

It’s a secret! Only I and the Russians know!

The president retweeting Hannity should be worrying … but laughs are able to be found.

Hannity’s not as entertaining as this.

I kinda think Lennon and McCartney would like this.

Hopefully there’s neither approval nor disapproval … don’t need people screaming about biased investigations. (He’s also wrong: Obama’s Rasmussen ratings were higher.)

More wise legal advice. Which means he’ll ignore it.
