Reposting this today because as late as it was posted yesterday doubt anyone got a chance to see it.

Talk about meglomaniacial abuse of power, using the White House Twitter account, @POTUS to blast a Department Store Chain Nordstroms because they decided to dump his daughters line of clothing and accessories because it wasn't selling?

Just goes to show what I have maintained since it started: TWITTER is for TWITS & TWATS

I have only recently embraced Twitter but pretty much for promotional purposes. And I have a ridiculously small amount of followers. Clearly, I am not using Twitter to it's full potential. But I do so love tweeting erectile dysfunction jokes at Trump.

Spicer: Acting AG refused to do her duty

(CNN)Another high-profile Trump administration official has made statements about a terror attack that never occurred.
This time, it's Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Three times in one week, Spicer alluded to a terror attack in Atlanta by someone from overseas.
But the last high-profile terror attack in Atlanta was the Centennial Olympic Park bombing, 21 years ago. And that bombing was carried out by Eric Robert Rudolph, a radical right-wing terrorist from Florida -- not a foreign-inspired terrorist.
So what exactly did Spicer say about Atlanta?

The first time
Here's what Spicer told ABC's "This Week" on January 29 while defending the President's travel ban:
"What do we say to the family who loses somebody over a terroristic (sic) -- to whether it's Atlanta or San Bernardino or the Boston bomber? Those people, each of whom had gone out to a country and then come back," Spicer said.
The second time
The next day, Spicer appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" and also mentioned Atlanta while defending the travel ban:
"There was a very short period of time in which we had something to execute that ensured that the people of the United States were safe. Everybody's been protected," Spicer said. "What happened if we didn't act and somebody was killed? ... Too many of these cases that have happened -- whether you're talking about San Bernardino, Atlanta ... Boston ... would you wait until you do? The answer is we act now to protect the future."
The third time
And in his January 30 press briefing, Spicer once again alluded to an Atlanta terror attack. When asked by a reporter why some countries linked to terrorism aren't on the travel ban list, Spicer responded:
"Right, and we're reviewing the entire process over this period of time to make sure that we do this right. But I don't think you have to look any further than the families of the Boston Marathon, in Atlanta, in San Bernardino to ask if we can go further."
At no time
Spicer's trio of comments were linked by The Daily Beast. It's still not clear what Atlanta terror attack Spicer was referring to.
CNN tried to reach Spicer all day Wednesday, asking what he meant by his Atlanta comments and whether he misspoke and was actually referring to the Orlando terror attack.
As of late Wednesday afternoon, Spicer has not responded to CNN's requests for comment.
On Wednesday, Atlanta police spokeswoman Elizabeth Espy said the department is not aware of any recent terror attacks.
"From what we can recall, the last known terrorist attack in the state was 1996 in which Eric Rudolph was implicated," she told CNN in an email.
As for Islamist terror attacks, "We have no record of an Islamic attack in the City of Atlanta."
FBI Special Agent in Charge Steve LeValley also said there has not been an Islamist terror attack in Atlanta. He said the last terror attack of any sort in Atlanta was in 1997, when a lesbian club was bombed. Rudolph, the Olympic Park bomber, also pleaded guilty to that attack.
Will someone please tell me I was slipped a Tab of "acid" this is not really happening. I want to wake up in the America we knew and loved before 2017.

If you were slipped some acid, it's a waste of a perfectly good trip.
