Hello. Good evening.

Retweets are not endorsements. Neither are faves. Having said that, someone on Melania Trump’s social team just did a whoopsie daisy.

Alex Litel spotted that @melaniatrump, a verified account, faved this tweet:

Maybe she was reading it and faved it. Maybe she was reading it and faved it accidentally. Maybe someone with access to her account was reading it and faved it accidentally. This last option seems far and away the most likely.

Social media managers make mistakes and they should not be fired for them and this is a truth I have written many times. The internet has an unquenchable thirst for outrage but that thirst often ends up taking us to crazy places. A few years ago a Houston Rockets social person was fired for emoji violence.

Anyway, someone in the Trump organization (or the general Trump universe, or a random person on the street who found Melania Trump’s lost phone —or the phone of someone with access to her account) apparently thought this was funny, which is pretty funny to people not in the Trump organization.

So, hahahahahah.

Have a great night.

 

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
