Call it a Freudian slip or maybe just call it hilarious.
Whoever is in charge of the Pentagon’s social media activities “accidentally” retweeted a call for Trump to resign on Wednesday. Here’s a fun screengrab:
Yes, “the solution is simple.” Roy Moore resigns, Al Franken resigns, and then Trump resigns.
It’s such an elegant “solution” – because often the best solutions are the simplest ones.
Needless to say, the DoD has since claimed they didn’t mean to do that, calling it an “operator” error.
An authorized operator of the @DeptofDefense’s official Twitter site erroneously retweeted content that would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense. The operator caught this error and immediately deleted it.

Right. Trump resigning “would not be endorsed” by the United States military.
Because if ousting Trump was indeed something the Pentagon “endorsed”, they probably wouldn’t express that endorsement via retweets. Generally speaking, those types of “endorsements” are expressed via military coup.
