When Mike Wall, Space.com Senior Writer for Fox News Science reported 1,650 foot-wide asteroid Bennu scheduled to hit Earth late in the 22nd century was not nearly big enough to pose an existential threat to the planet; Sweet Meteor O’ Death chided the writer.
SMH. Didn't even bother to ask for comment. Where did you go to J-School? Princeton? https://t.co/Qcp3tpbaDQ— Sweet Meteor O'Death (@smod2016) August 2, 2016
@TwitchyTeam Completely misleading report from NASA. This year's extinction-level asteroid impact is still on schedule.— Sweet Meteor O'Death (@smod2016) August 2, 2016
SMOD 2016 is a candidate for president running as a Precambrian conservative “ready to make an impact”. SMOD joined Twitter in December 2014 as a parody account and resolutely claims he is tough on Putin and Iran.
In addition to reassuring fans of extinction-level asteroid impacts, SMOD weighed in on the kerfuffle that caused heads to ‘splode on the Left.
Donald Trump held a rally in Virginia. During his speech a baby began to cry. We all acknowledge the sound of a crying baby is hard to ignore. You’ve been there. In church, at the movies and oh Lord, on a plane. You feel for the mother.
Initially Trump suggested that he did not mind the disruption. “Don’t worry about that baby. I love babies," Trump said after hearing the baby crying during an aside about the trade imbalance. "Don’t worry about it. I love babies. I hear that baby crying, I like it. What a baby. What a beautiful baby. Don’t worry, don’t worry. The mom’s running around like—don’t worry about it, you know. It’s young and beautiful and healthy and that’s what we want.”
The baby cried a little more prompting Trump to quip, “Actually, I was only kidding, you can get the baby out of here. That’s all right. Don’t worry. I, I think she really believed me that I love having a baby crying while I’m speaking. That’s OK. People don’t understand. That’s OK,” he said as the crowd applauded.
"I saw that Donald Trump kicked a crying baby out of an event earlier today," Clinton VP Tim Kaine said. "So as I’m thinking about pre-K, sometimes you wonder who the baby is, right? You wonder who the baby is.”
Later Tuesday evening, NBC News reporter Katy Tur said in a television interview that the baby was allowed to stay at the rally.
Trump makes a joke about a crying baby. The media treats it like it’s some great insight into his psyche. And we wonder why he’s doing well.— Steve Krakauer (@SteveKrak) August 2, 2016
