President Trump posted a tweet today stating basically anyone that messes with federal monuments will face 10 years in prison but what people gravitated to was the fact he even thinks someone can knock over the Washington Monument. here’s his tweet.
No, Radical Left anarchists, agitators, looters or protesters will not be knocking down or harming the Washington Monument, the Lincoln or Jefferson Memorials, or just about any other Federal Monumrnt or Statue. If they even try, an automatic 10 years in prison. Sorry!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 12, 2020
And now here’s some of the reactions to it…
Of course it’s not a Trump tweet unless there’s a spelling error.
Sure, because “knocking over” the Washington Monument is a real threat. Get six or seven people to push real hard and boom, over it’ll go. https://t.co/mRjxmuv2VK— Michael C. Bailey, stay-at-home…well, everything (@MCBaileyWriter) July 12, 2020
Some people think it’s a joke to even worry about it happening.
Who cares, they gunna tear down the Washington Monument! Some of them have chains on their pickups, they could be doing it right now!— Laurie Strings (@LaurieStrings) July 12, 2020
Some people think it could easily be done.
We could just rename the Washington monument “The Trump Monument” because it looks like a giant dick. https://t.co/Qslw8H9wnw— Jason Selvig (@jasonselvig) July 12, 2020
He has a point…
I would pay for the top lawyer to defend the person that can knock down the Washington Monument. (He doesn’t know what these look like) https://t.co/E1wO2RReRz— Alyssa Hill (@LadyAlyssaEsq) July 12, 2020
With some at the ready to support anyone that can knock it over…
Did Donny have a bad trip? Dream? No one is knocking down the Washington Monument. pic.twitter.com/kbJZiT93Yq— Melissa Stone (@onlytruthhere) July 12, 2020
Some think he’s crazy for even mentioning it.
The Washington Monument and the flag don’t matter, the spirit they were supposed to embody does. Trump cares more about pointless symbols than the values they were meant to reflect— Melonishus (@melonishus) July 12, 2020
And some just don’t think it matters much.
As I say in all my other posts, just because I post it doesn’t mean I agree with it, I’m just showing other people’s reactions.
