Trump Uncalls Kitten 9-1-1? Unheard Of!
The biggest problem with Donald Trump — aside from everything — is that you can never tell whether what he says or does is true.
Well, no — mostly everything is says is a lie. But when it comes to other stuff, journalists and the rest of us have our work cut out.
Did he really get Ford to nix its Mexican plant? (We're doubtful.) Did he drive the hapless Republicans on Capitol Hill off their unholy plan to gut the Office of Congressional Ethics? (Nah, they just postponed it until August.) But most important: Did he truly follow — and then unfollow — Emergency Kittens on Twitter?
Emergency Kittens seemed to think so. At least, they reacted by posting this image — after which Trump dropped out of their follower ranks.
We're having a hard time figuring all this out. Are the awe-inspiring responsibilities of the Presidency starting to close in on The New Worst Person Who's Ever Lived? Did he feel a strong if fleeting need to see cute kitten pics for relief? Was he just trying to grab more you-know-what? Or have the Russians hacked his Twitter account? We cats HISS.
