Progressives Skewer Silicon Valley Billionaires’ Newest Political Pet Project

Soon after two Silicon Valley billionaires launched an online initiative to rejuvenate the Democratic Party Monday night, veteran progressive political operatives began mocking it as an out-of-touch vanity project.

Wishing everyone a happy #Independence Day! “Remember always that all of us … are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.” -FDR — Tim Cook (@tim_cook) July 4, 2017 According to the University of California at Santa Barbara’s American Presidency Project , FDR made  the comments before the Daughters of the American Revolution on April 21, 1938. He detailed how his ancestors came over on The Mayflower, and how it was crucial to remember “the reasons that brought our immigrant ancestors to this country, the reasons that impelled our Revolutionary ancestors to throw off a fascist yoke.” “Remember, remember always that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists,” FDR said

Tweeters Troll Corey Lewandowski For Calling Donald Trump ‘Hemingway Of Twitter’

Corey Lewandowski likened President Donald Trump to author Ernest Hemingway , and the Twitterverse just couldn’t cope. Tweeters were quick to poke fun at Trump’s onetime campaign manager after he claimed his former boss was the “Ernest Hemingway of Twitter” on Friday night’s broadcast of “Hannity” on Fox News . Lewandowski’s comment came during a gushingly pro-Trump chat with stand-in host Kimberly Guilfoyle and The Washington Times’ Charlie Hurt that centered on Trump’s Twitter feud  w ith MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show hosts  Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski . Amid a barrage of amusing gifs, Twitter users gleefully imagined how Hemingway would have written about Trump and questioned if the commander in chief even knew who the late Nobel Prize-winning writer of “The Old Man and the Sea” was. See Lewandowski make his comment at the 6:06 mark in the clip above, and check out a sampling of the responses below: “For whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee”
