Twitter Diplomacy


Ana Navarro Destroy’s Trump’s Secretary of State Brouhaha With Single Tweet
“Let’s stop obsessing over who’ll be Secretary of State. We don’t need one. Our Twitterer-in-Chief can set foreign policy in 140 characters”

But I thought it was fine when Obama did it.

Not to mention a certain Secretary of State.

Thanks for the inspiration @ASmith83 & @Sllambe – I’ll take it from here… #tweetsfromhillary

The 2016 Obama International “Fuck You” Farewell Tour

I just watched Barrycade at a press conference on the UK leg of his tour. Telling them what to do on the Brexit vote, threatening trade treaties, rubbing their noses in the fact that he sent the UK’s gift of the Churchill bust back…

The UK might be declaring war.

On the bright side, maybe the Brits will burn down the White House again.

I can hardly wait to hear what he tells the Germans about immigration, or the Saudis about Islam.

If he gets to Japan, he’ll probably hand out commemorative glow-in-the-dark mushroom cloud toys.

There is not enough popcorn in the world for that show

Technically true.

Will Obama Pick Himself For High Court?
One name I have not seen on any of these lists, but which has been mentioned as a possible pick for Hillary, is that of Barack Obama himself. There is nothing in the Constitution to prevent a president from appointing himself to the Supreme Court. Of course, he would have to get Senate approval, and the idea of Joe Biden stepping up to the presidency, even for a very short time, would play in, but it’s not beyond possibility, especially if his first pick were to be stymied.

And if he appointed himself with the Senate in recess, they’d have to impeach him or he’d be there until the end of the session.

I sort of hope he does it. “Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Barack Hussein Obama.” It just rolls of the tongue like spewing vomit.

Obama’s SCOTUS criteria

President Constitutional Law Professor has a post at SCOTUSblog on what he’s looking for in a SCOTUS nominee.

A Responsibility I Take Seriously
A sterling record. A deep respect for the judiciary’s role. An understanding of the way the world really works. That’s what I’m considering as I fulfill my constitutional duty to appoint a judge to our highest court.

Notice anything missing from that list?
