Donald Trump Sent a Tweet. It’s Confusing. I Think He Thinks It’s Funny? I Don’t Know. I’m So Tired.

I honestly don’t know what the hell this tweet even means but I do know that it’s crazy that the leader of the free world sent it!

I am really into spin classes. A thing about those classes is that you have to wear cycling shoes. Those shoes get very smelly. Real cyclists who go outdoors and ride in the elements have told me that a way to deal with that is to put a bit of apple cider vinegar in your shoes. Not too much! But a bit. So now when my cycling shoes smell so bad that I’m embarrassed about it, I put a little apple cider vinegar in them before the next class.

When Trump’s presidency is over, we’re all going to have to get together and buy some industrial size vats of apple cider vinegar. 

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
