Trump Launches Tweet Attack on Carrier Steel Union Boss for Fact-Checking Him

Can’t turn off the internet for an hour before a President-Elect starts attacking individuals on Twitter:

President-elect Donald Trump pledged to be “so presidential you will be bored” during the election, but he continues to keep Americans on their toes after again taking to Twitter to battle his most recent critic.

Chuck Jones, president of United Steelworkers 1999, has not been shy about telling publications that Trump broke his promise to save jobs at the Carrier plant, a pledge on which the president-elect campaigned.

Trump recently proclaimed that he saved 1,000 jobs at the plant, which is untrue. Instead, the deal saves 800 positions. Carrier’s parent company gets $7 million in tax cuts and incentives over 10 years.

Three hundred Carrier jobs are still slated to be sent to Mexico.

Trump did not address the reasons for the feud directly, but instead — with no evidence — stated via a tweet that Jones had done a “terrible job” and suggested that he was the reason companies were leaving the country.

Sandy Hook ‘truther’ arrested for making death threats against father of slain boy

Like this guy hasn’t been through enough already with his child being gunned down but now has to deal with these truther assholes? (Redundant)

A Florida woman who believes that the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School was an event staged by the government has been indicted for making threats against the father of one of the children killed in the massacre.

CBS Miami reported that 57-year-old Lucy Richards was indicted on four felony counts of transmitting threats in interstate commerce, according to a statement released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida.

“If convicted, each count carries a maximum term of five years’ imprisonment,” the statement explained. “Richards was arrested on December 5, 2016 and made her initial appearance before United States Magistrate Judge Mark Pizzo in the Middle District of Florida. Richards is scheduled for an initial appearance in Fort Lauderdale on December 19, 2016.”

Another Conspiracy for #PizzaGate

Here’s the thing about conspiracies. You can never disprove them. No matter how little evidence that there is in a conspiracy’s favor, even the lack of evidence just shows that the coverup goes deeper. This stuff usually takes place in a corner of the internet where common sense won’t drag you anywhere near. But since we now have a President-Elect who welcomes the conspiracy theories, everything we know has just been turned upside-down:

It didn’t take long after the arrest of a gun-wielding man at a District pizza restaurant on Sunday for the usual conspiracy theory that swirls around such an incident to percolate on social media and in the nether corners of the Internet.

The gunman, claimed the baying hounds of paranoia, was part of a “false-flag” operation — that is, he was an actor in an elaborate plot designed to discredit those who have for weeks spread a bizarre story about the restaurant being the locus of a child-molestation ring run by Hillary Clinton.

There’s no evidence that the suspect, identified as Edgar Maddison Welch, was acting on anyone’s behalf other than his own when he allegedly fired an assault-style rifle in the restaurant, Comet Ping Pong. There’s also nothing to indicate that any government or political party had conspired with him so that he’d take the fall for his alleged actions.

But saying so won’t stop the burgeoning industry of “false flag” wavers from saying otherwise.
