Vogue: “President Donald Trump continues his violent Twitter tirades unabated.”
“According to the medium’s stated rules and policies, one is not allowed to threaten violence and/or wish serious harm on specific people on Twitter. But as is now the custom, the rules do not appear to apply to Trump. Yesterday, the president doubled down on his trans-Pacific penis-measuring contest with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and sent what The Atlantic is calling ‘the most irresponsible tweet in history’:”
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!

“Surely, threatening nuclear war is an offense that is at least as bad—if not egregiously worse—than [Rose] McGowan posting someone’s private phone number online . . . right? But according to Twitter, wrong. While McGowan was temporarily suspended, @realDonaldTrump’s Twitter feed blazes on.”
