Did he or didn’t he? Trump responds to question about Comey memo allegation

At this afternoon’s joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Donald Trump was asked if he’d ever asked former FBI Director James Comey to shut down his investigation into Mike Flynn. Trump’s answer was pretty unequivocal:

Hey, all you ‘haters and losers’! Will you vote for President Donald Trump?

http://twitter.com/#!/benjaminhratner/status/515635458572046336

He can’t go away. He just can’t.

And what makes it even worse is that he seems to think we don’t want him to go away:

I wonder if I run for PRESIDENT, will the haters and losers vote for me knowing that I will MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? I say they will!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 26, 2014

OK, so at least The Donald can count on his vote. That’s something. Any other takers?

@realDonaldTrump Haters and losers are the only people who will vote for you.

— Nobody's Business (@ocularnervosa) September 26, 2014

Oh, snap!

Punk’d loser: How big of a crybaby is Donald Trump? THIS big

Dude. Just when you thought Donald Trump couldn’t get more pathetic, he proves you wrong!

I thought I was being nice to somebody re their parents. I guess this teaches you not to be nice or trusting. Sad!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2014

As Twitchy reported, the buffoon fell for a hilarious joke tweet and retweeted it. He then swiftly bravely ran away and deleted his retweet, of course. Lesson learned? Not so much.

"@realDonaldTrump I thought I was being nice to somebody. I guess this teaches you not to be nice or trusting" Is that what it teaches him?

— Stupid History Pics (@historyinflicks) September 29, 2014

@realDonaldTrump Maybe it's a sign that you should stop retweeting "Pro you" tweets Donald? It's not very becoming…

— Holly Hollywould (@itshollywould) September 29, 2014

Heh.

It got worse.

Some jerk fraudulently tweeted that his parents said I was a big inspiration to them + pls RT—out of kindness I retweeted. Maybe I’ll sue.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 29, 2014

Waaah!

Twitter users gave him the business and it was hilarious.

@realDonaldTrump @AbiWilks "out of kindness"?! Nothing to do with that MASSIVE ego getting a little stroking then?

— CheltenhamUnder (@CheltenhamUnder) September 29, 2014

Bingo.

.@realDonaldTrump *chuckle* he sure made you look *burst spleen* a real *sides literally split* DONALD DUCK *brain explodes from laughs*

— Harry Harris (@CmonHarris) September 29, 2014

@realDonaldTrump @LazySavant LOOOOOL! Good luck with that, rughead.

— Tony Parsehole (@SpongyPissFlap) September 29, 2014

.@realDonaldTrump You should definitely sue. That wouldn't be hilarious, and make you look like even more of an arsehole at all.

— Tim (@ruudboy) September 29, 2014

@realDonaldTrump @Mary_MariaMarie Can you sue someone for your own stupidity?

— Tony Hughes (CP) (@TheProtestBoard) September 29, 2014

@realDonaldTrump @a_girl_irl Maybe you should try lawsuits for revenue since all your businesses go bankrupt.

— El Cid (@EnBuenora) September 29, 2014

Oh snap!

And this exit question perhaps explains why revenue is so depleted:

@realDonaldTrump @trill_pikachu How many diapers have you gone through already today

— GOOD COSTUME HAVER (@Ironghazi) September 29, 2014

Perfect.

The 2013 Twitchys: Top 20 deleted tweets of the year

twitchys 2013

When politicians, journalists, and celebrities write ill-considered tweets, they often reach for the “delete” button as quickly as they can, hoping to erase the evidence of their foolishness before anyone notices. Unfortunately for them — but fortunately for you! — that trick hardly ever works. Thus, we present the twenty best deleted tweet events of 2013!

Note to Twitchy app users: In order to see all of the deleted tweets, you may need to load the post in your browser.

20. In the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal, actress Kirstie Alley said that white people like to murder black people. Or something.

kirstiealley

“We”? Was Kirstie admitting to some sort of crime? Of course not, but those are the kinds of mistakes one can make when in a hurry to jump aboard a bandwagon.

19. Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx recently called “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson a racist, homophobic “a-hole.” We pointed out the time the Mötley Crüe bassist used the N-word. Oh, and the time he hurled an anti-gay slur. We’re generous like that.  After we published our post, sneaky Sixx quietly deleted his tweets.

http://twitter.com/#!/NikkiSixx/status/413925720398651392

And the award goes to …

http://twitter.com/#!/NikkiSixx/status/413930001549905920

Now Sixx is singing a new tune.

18. CBS News’ White House correspondent Major Garrett is not f-ing kidding about your shirty business. In a rare hat trick of deleted tweet, funny typo, and accidental tweeting of DM, Garrett showed Twitter he’s not to be messed with!

http://twitter.com/#!/MajorCBS/status/301006957173673984

17. Whenever there’s an attack on American soil, if there’s any question about the intentions of the attacker, you can be assured that lefties will scramble all over themselves to blame conservatives, and if you’re lucky, the Tea Party. But usually it’s not a U.S. Forest Service PR rep!

http://twitter.com/#!/ForestInsider/status/323927693114609665

You would think that the “Director of Public Affairs for the Southern Region of the U.S. Forest Service” might be more careful about her relations with the public. But you would be wrong.

16. Graeme Zielinski, communications director for the Wisconsin Democratic Party, has a history of making sensational claims about Gov. Scott Walker. (Correction: He is the former communications director for the Wisconsin Democratic Party.) Last year, he suggested that Walker defended criminals who commit “boy rape.” This year, he took it a step further, making a comparison between the Republican Governor and serial killer/cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer:

http://twitter.com/#!/gjzielinski/status/307527092168433664

It was a tough call, but the honor goes to this one:

http://twitter.com/#!/gjzielinski/status/307529620037713920

15. Like a lot of liberals, the Democratic mayor of New Jersey’s fourth-largest city believes that the problems with HealthCare.gov were caused by Republican shenanigans:

http://twitter.com/#!/MayorBollwage/status/391691820113358849

By the way, what the heck is “robot calling”?

14. Fox News anchor Shepard Smith’s people “confirmed” that shots were fired outside the White House when the real story was that some idiot was throwing firecrackers.

13. “Real journalists” really wanted the story of the Sandy Hook father who was “heckled” by gun rights supporters to be true, even though it definitely was not. Even some lefty outlets like Slate admitted they blew the story. CNN’s Anderson Cooper must have gotten the memo just before he deleted this tweet:

shouted-down

12. Van Jones wants you to know that Fox News is “PATHETIC.” Unfortunately for him, the Photoshop that “proved” his point was a fake.

van-jones-fox-photoshop

11. A former Afghanistan Ambassador falsely accused U.S. soldiers of killing the last lion in Kunar province. Problem is, there are no lions in the wild in Afghanistan, and the photo is fake.

http://twitter.com/#!/AmbassadorJawad/status/415815989725765632

lion-killed

10. Agence France-Presse’s Emal Haidary definitely wasn’t the only one who tweeted out a bogus story about Sarah Palin arriving in South Korea for Nelson Mandela’s funeral, but he may have been the only professional journalist to do so.

She is more confused than I, lools,
Sarah Palin Arrives in South Korea for Mandela Memorial
dailycurrant.com/2013/12/10/sar…— Emal Haidary (@menh0) December 11, 2013

9. CNN’s Christiane Amanpour wished human rights abuser Robert Mugabe a happy birthday:

http://twitter.com/#!/camanpour/status/304707026586570752

How sweet! After deleting her celebratory tweet, and replacing with a more benign recognition of the milestone, she tried to act as if she had been ironically tweeting. Then why delete it, Alanis Morissette?

8. When “Fast and Furious” movie star Paul Walker died last month, Jezebel editor Erin Ryan took the occasion to show everyone just how classy she can be:

http://twitter.com/#!/morninggloria/status/406984650503245824

After doubling down on her hatred and blaming conservatives, she deleted the tweet. But not before we took notice.

7. Given the trash that flows freely out of Sarah Silverman’s gutter mind without apology, it took a lot for her to top herself and tweet something so awful that she was forced to delete it. Oh, here it is:

http://twitter.com/#!/SarahKSilverman/status/350027506272829440

Actually, Gov. Perry had found the word offensive and painted over the epithet. After deleting the three separate times she deceptively insulted Perry, Silverman tried to explain it away by saying the tweets were too negative. That hasn’t stopped her before.

After her pitiful walkback, she was spanked for losing her ongoing fight for laughs.

6. Pastor and televangelist Joel Osteen usually tweets benign inspirational Christian messages, which made this deleted tweet the “best unintentionally awesome tweet ever”:

Either Osteen was radically changing his stance on lust, or he didn’t quite see all the possible hilarious interpretations of his well-meaning message. Since he deleted it, we imagine it was the latter.

5. What’s a list of worst tweeters without the man, the myth, the toupee, the one and only (thank God) Donald Trump? In one little tweet, the Donald embarrassed organizers who invited him to speak at CPAC when he ridiculously announced that Ashley Judd was “going to be a great candidate” for U.S. Senate:

http://twitter.com/#!/realDonaldTrump/status/311471076972580864

He deleted the tweet, and covered by trying to blame Karl Rove. Judd decided not to run, but unfortunately The Donald continues to tweet.

4. We’re not sure what we did to have Britain dump their useless political commentators on our shores, but it sure isn’t helping international relations to have Piers Morgan make bogus claims to satisfy his gun-grabbing gluttony:

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/379744807167340544

Musket is picking up a sweet 2013 Twitchy award for this one:

http://twitter.com/#!/piersmorgan/status/379749140734828545

Morgan was just salivating at the chance to to blame the AR-15 for the Washington Navy Yard shooting, but he had to delete his tweets after he learned that the accused shooter didn’t use an AR-15. Oddly, this tweet is still live:

3. Remember when Rolling Stone magazine insulted everyone by featuring a rock ‘n roll cover of Boston Bomber Dzhokhar Tzarnaev? Its senior editor thought he’d defuse the situation by making an obscene joke to make light of the furor. Didn’t work:

He deleted the tweet and apologized for the joke, but not for the offensive cover that imagined Tzarnaev as a rock star.

2. Coming in at number two of the top deleted tweets of 2013 is the ridiculously obscene insult blithely tweeted by a foul-mouthed staffer at The Onion against the 9-year-old actress Quvenzhané Wallis:

http://twitter.com/#!/TheOnion/status/305900584278556672

Wow. You like to be edgy, Onion, but you pirouetted right over the edge on that one, and Twitter was not amused!

1. And now, the number one deleted tweet of 2013 honor goes to … Geraldo “Capone Vault” Rivera! Long before Barack Obama made the selfie devoid of all coolness, Geraldo sent a selfie via Tweet that “launched a thousand breakfasts”:

With just one press of the send button, Geraldo made an entire internet turn in revulsion, and forever lose its innocence. Truly, we will never be the same thanks to the terrible tweeting of that stomach-turning selfie on that day that will live in tweetfamy.

If your favorite deleted tweet didn’t score a Twitchy award, stay tuned. More awards are on the way.
