The only five responses you need to Trump’s bizarre tweet about Turkey
It wouldn’t be a normal week if Donald Trump didn’t have at least one meltdown via Twitter, and this week’s first such outburst was pretty special. He somehow managed to threaten to ruin a country’s economy, whilst indulging in some seriously deluded boasting. Here’s how he pulled that off.
As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over…

As is right and proper, his tweet received a ton of mockery, but these five were sublime examples we thought you shouldn’t miss.

At this point, one wonders what could ever suggest that the man's Twitter account had been hacked…

What are the odds that he is talking about an actual turkey?

As good as they are, this comment from LBC presenter and best-selling author, James O’Brien, said all that needed to be said – in just one word.
