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. 

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.
