A Message From Twitter Appeared Right Above a Hate-Filled Trump Tweet in a User's Timeline, and People Can't Believe the Timing

In real estate they say location is everything. In media it's timing.

So it was a moment of kismet for Miles Kahn executive producer of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee—of the "Ivanka Trump is a feckless c..." fame—to sign into Twitter at the moment he did.

There at the top of his feed was a tweet by a certain someone just under a notice from the Twitter Gods for everyone to play nice. Because they have rules.

Twitter's missive read:

"Support a culture of respect on Twitter"
"Did you know fewer than 1% of people on Twitter produce most of the Tweets that break our rules against abuse? Please take a look at our rules to know what is and isn't allowed."

And directly below that notice on Kahn's feed?

People thought maybe they found one of the 1%.

In the definition of irony, a tweet attack by President Donald Trump targeting MSNBC's Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.

Although that presidential post was mild compared to his last several weeks.

President Trump called a Black Congressman a racist because Representative Elijah Cummings subpoenaed records the White House refused to show the House Oversight Committee concerning potential illegal activities by his daughter and son-in-law.

This followed calling mostly minority neighborhoods—where his son-in-law owns rental properties—a place no human being would live.

As well as telling four Congresswomen of color that they came from horrible countries—they're all US citizens—and should go back where they came from which lead to chants of the same at a MAGA rally.

While many got a good laugh from the timing on Kahn's Twitter feed, others saw it as an indictment of Twitter's practices.

In June, Twitter announced their stance on world leaders who violate the platform's terms of service. In the coming months, tweets from world leaders that violate the rules will be flagged with a warning and lose reach, but not be removed.

But they ask everyone else to support a culture of respect.

Days later, Limbaugh made even more headlines when he scoffed at the idea that gay South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 presidential contender Pete Buttigieg would kiss his husband on a debate stage next to "Mr. Man" Donald Trump.

Despite massive outcry against the homophobic remarks, Limbaugh has yet to apologize.

Now, we know why.

Stephen Miller, the white supremacist Trump administration official behind some of President Donald Trump's most insidious anti-immigration policies, was married at the Trump International Hotel in D.C. this past weekend.

While he and his new wife, Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary Katie Waldman, enjoyed a day of blissful matrimony, others called attention to the numerous immigrants and refugees whose lives have been ruined by policies Stephen Miller helped build.

Nearly 90 percent of the United States Congress is Christian, and every single President in U.S. history has been Christian, while Christians only make up 65 percent of Americans.

That's not enough representations for the National Association of Christian Lawmakers, a Conservative Christian group dedicated to influencing America's politicians to favor Christianity over constituents.

President Donald Trump and those who work for him routinely tout the United States' low unemployment numbers and economic prosperity as evidence that his term as President so far has been a success.

They'll frequently deploy some iteration of the phrase "lowest unemployment ever," while reminders that a consistent downward trend in unemployment began years ago—under former President Barack Obama.
