Trump Says Blumenthal Should ‘Take A Nice Long ‘Nam Vacation’, Thanks ‘Nicole’ The Robot

But one person who doesn't realize this is Donald Trump - who probably still thinks he has a friend in "Nicole."

Historical accident and man who just can’t help himself, Donald Trump, is hard at work being President – and you can tell by how much time he’s spent on Twitter today.

First thing Monday morning, Trump fired off a truly absurd series of 140-character insults aimed primarily at Richard Blumenthal and the The New York Times.

Blumenthal, Trump said, is a “Vietnam con artist” who has “lied and/or defrauded voters” more than anyone “in U.S. history” and is in the habit of “crying like a baby” and “begging for forgiveness like a child.”

As for the Times, Trump insists they’re still “failing.”

Well, fast forward to this afternoon and believe it or not (actually, we’re going to go ahead and assume that nothing surprises you anymore), he’s back on Twitter and he’s gunning for the Times again. Here’s the latest:


And he’s not done with Blumenthal either. To wit:


We are so far beyond the pale at this juncture that it’s difficult to know exactly what to say.

It’s also worth noting that over the weekend, around the same time he was retweeting James Woods and someone’s granddad, Trump was duped by a Twitter bot named “Nicole.”

We flagged that immediately:


Sure enough, it turns out “Nicole” wasn’t real.


A Twitter account that tweeted support for President Donald Trump on Saturday was rewarded when Trump shared the compliment and replied, “Thank you Nicole!”

But observers quickly noticed something odd about “Nicole”: She didn’t seem to be real. And by Sunday night, the account was suspended.

The account, which joined Twitter in January with the purported name Nicole Mincey, branded Mincey as a “black pro-Trump conservative” who began a pro-Trump retail empire after becoming disillusioned by former President Barack Obama.

An ad published in the Daily Caller under the byline “PROTRUMP45,” the name of the merchandise store Nicole claimed to run, described Mincey as an “African American female from Camden, NJ” who “grew up in poverty” and is “a heartwarming reminder of how big the minority Republican movement really is.”

Mincey’s profile photo on Twitter, however — which was later republished by— appeared to be a cropped image of a T-shirt model. 

And this is just par for the course.

This is how the alt-Right ecosystem works. It’s a self-referential, click-generating machine. In other words: it’s not real.

But one person who doesn’t realize this is Donald Trump – who probably still thinks he has a friend in “Nicole.”

    1. What alt-Right imperatively deserves is Control-alt-Delete + Save.

    2. Please note this is the second time today that Trump attacked the Jewish Senator to the delight of his dog whistled crowd, while engaged in his whirlwind tour around his golf course all the while gaining Presidential Pounds by the day. Soon he’ll be in competition with William Dee “Haystack” Calhoun, Gorilla Monsoon and “Squasher” Humphrey.

      I think it is time for the XXXXL straight jacket for our “Gluttony in Chief”. A nice stay in our worst federal penitentiary would just the ticket.

    4. fn., to my comment: But only if he’s found guilty so he can be given the full protection of a Supermax prison such that a President deserves.

      Marty – WOW that was interesting! Did you also scroll down just a tad and see the Double Agents – one in particular really got my attention – FBI agent, Robert Hanssen, 2002, 15 consecutive life sentences, espionage for 20 yrs with Soviet Union and then Russia – dozens of intel agents executed thanks to his betrayal. Holy Crap. I bet that photo is his official FBI employee file photo.

      There is also a CIA agent Harold Nicholson, Highest-ranking CIA officer to be convicted of espionage; pleaded guilty in 1997 to passing classified information to Russia from 1994 to 1996; pleaded guilty in 2010 to attempting to collect payments from Russian agents for his past espionage activities. 23 yr sentence and to be released 2024. (there are a couple more guys listed also, one related to China and one to Cuba, espionage cases) (Boston marathon bomber brother is also there)

      Trump would fit right in! They could chat about their Russia memories! If you scroll another bit and look over the Organized Crime prisoners there, could be some people Trump knows on that list too. And all them and so many more listed at that one prison in Colorado. 23 hours a day in a cell 7 ft x 12 ft. window 4″ x 4′, view only sky and roofs. and a TV set for only good behavior! HA! Just reading all about that place gave me ice cold chills.

    6. In that prison, Murphy, he should only live in interesting times, so I suggested a prison with a nice mix. of people.

      I only that Hope Hicks spills the beans and doesn’t end up nearby. You know the 28 year old has been the White House Director of Strategic Communications since January 20, 2017, a position Trump created just for her? People have to know that hanging around this guy is not good for their health. You think she’ll lie for him under oath? You think she’s smart enough to evade the kind of questioning that she’ll face once she’s called before a grand jury? Do you think that Mueller, et al., has already subpoenaed her emails records for the last year or more? I don’t think she has any idea what she’s in for. And that’s good for America.

        Hope Hicks, prior work experience, model and did some work for Ivanka. She is very young and almost no business experience/knowledge. I read a couple of articles with emphasis on her and trump at, May 30, 2017 and in particular at, Jan. 1, 2017 article. In that second article mentioned here, there is a photo of her and trump and another man sitting in a diner booth and her expression makes one wonder. (page 7, She is holding the eagle in trump’s office) There are multiple pages at Google about Hicks.

        Do I think she would lie for him? Here’s a quote from Hope Hicks, May 30, 2017 Salon article: “President Trump has a magnetic personality and exudes positive energy, which is infectious to those around him,” the statement said. “He has an unparalleled ability to communicate with people, whether he is speaking to a room of three or an arena of 30,000. He has built great relationships throughout his life and treats everyone with respect. He is brilliant with a great sense of humor . . . and an amazing ability to make people feel special and aspire to be more than even they thought possible.” Does that count as a lie if she truly believes it?

        Yeah, she is clueless. And yeah, that’s good for America.

    7. And yeah, IMHO, she’ll fold like a well starched linen napkin under skilled questioning by one of Mueller’s prosecutors as she sits in a Grand Jury room under oath without counsel before a room filled with grand jurors (between 16-23) staring at her as if she’s failing America and her family by doing anything other than being forthright.
