On the 25th February 2015, @realDonaldTrump tweeted:

"If the Dow Jones ever falls more than 1,000 "points" in a Single Day the sitting president should be "loaded" into a very large cannon and Shot into the sun at TREMENDOUS SPEED! No excuses!"

Capitals etc. all Trumpy's own.

I don't know, shoot him off the ramparts and see if you can drop him on his golf course…………………..

It's a fake tweet. Debunked.

Darn it!
I'll tell Edinburg Castle they can have their big pop gun back.

Pity that, it'd knock the Edinburg Tattoo into a cocked hat as public entertainment.

Looks like a trial run here……….

As twodot knows from Snopes, the tweet was not "debunked". The originator of it, horrified at how fast his joke was spreading, tried to get the word out that it was untrue. The author. On it before anyone.

The whole experience shows the irresponsibility of doing government business by twitter. It is way too easy to falsify a tweet and then have idiots all believing it.

It seems that we have become desensitized to it after a daily barrage for over a year.

I miss Obama! Whatever faults he had, at least he was an adult.

"That's a rather personal question, sir."

Trump's friend Vlad has got one - he might lend it...
