Donald Trump and his best gay friend.
Donald Trump and his best gay friend.

The revolving door at Trump Tower is still open, as President-elect Donald Trump hosted ALL HIS BESTEST FRIENDS who happen to be technology CEOs and bigwigs for a special meeting with himself, his children (but of course! They are the president too after all!) and Mike Pence, Steve Bannon and the other goons. Everybody was there! BoingBoing has the list, which included, among others, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Tesla dude Elon Musk, Apple man Tim Cook, and sitting right next to him, Trump’s best gay friend/Gawker annihilater/PayPal queen Peter Thiel, who organized the meeting. You know Cook is a gay too, which means, awwww, he seated the homosexuals together!

Guess who was NOT there? That would be Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Trump’s favoritest thing in the world, Twitter. For the reason why, Politico points us to a Medium post written by Gary Coby, director of digital advertising and fundraising for the Trump campaign, that describes how Twitter refused to let the Trump campaign make a super cool #CrookedHillary emoji, to use on Twitter. Unfair!

Politico summarizes it helpfully, because the Medium post is a total whine-fest:

Dorsey personally intervened to block the Trump operation from deploying — as part of a $5 million deal between the social media company and the campaign — an emoji showing, in various renderings, small bags of money being given away or stolen. That emoji would have been offered to users as a replacement for the hashtag #CrookedHillary, a preferred Trump insult for his Democratic opponent. […]

[RNC spokesgoon Sean] Spicer told the Washington Examiner in October, regarding the emoji dustup, that “while Twitter claims to be a venue that promotes the free exchange of ideas, it’s clear that it’s leadership’s left wing ideology literally trumps that.”

Um, OK. You can go read the whole Medium thing if you’d like, but the thrust is that Twitter was pickin’ on poor lil’ Trump, but it was nice to #CrookedHillary, yadda yadda.

On Twitter, CNN reporter Dylan Byers says Trump’s beef with his lifeblood, Twitter, is more complicated than a mere #EmojiFight, but he doesn’t elaborate. Maybe Trump is mad that Twitter said it won’t help him build a registry of Muslims. Maybe he’s mad how Twitter keeps banning all those fun white supremacists he likes to retweet.

Hey Twitter, you pissed about not being invited? We have a idea for you! BAN DONALD TRUMP LIKE A COMMON WHITE SUPREMACIST MILO GAY! Hahaha, that would be amazing.

Here are a couple of fun things that happened in the big sexxxy tech meeting. First of all, Trump hand-hugs his gay boyfriend Peter Thiel all weird, while Thiel has this “awwww, daddy” look on his face:

How sweet!

And here is a video of Trump telling all the gathered critters that he just loves them, they’re the best, he’s going to make it so much easier for them to trade, you’re not gonna believe it, it’s gonna be terrific:

And finally, a tweet from HuffPost reporter Christina Wilkie, showing all the Trump kids sitting together behaving like good children, at the head of the table at daddy’s big president meeting:

trumpkids2

Awwwww, it’s so heartwarming seeing all these rich people get together to help normalize Donald Trump, the thin-skinned, autocratic, kleptocratic once-and-future tyrant of America! ALL THE FEELS!

    Dear Peter Thiel:

    Feel free to Go fuck yourself with quite possibly every single farm implement and the entire aisle of good cutting impedimenta at Home Depot. And while you’re at it, I’ve heard you have a particular fetish for fellating boiled chitlins, anally defiling llamas and the occasional herd of sheep, and are really fond of komodo dragon semen. So belly up and ankles up, you venomous hateful queenly sack of shit.

    Amazon has kissed Donnie’s ass?

    Thanks for letting me know so I can let people know that gift cards to Amazon are no longer acceptable for me at holiday and birthday time.

    Now what to do with the books and music I have purchased from Amazon? Fire? Donation to Goodwill? Burial?

    Well I’d be a liar if I said that sorting through books and music isn’t my idea of heaven.

    • Pinkham’s Law

      Getting rid of them will deprive Amazon of nothing. Replacing them deprives you of other things for which you could use the money. Keep them. Enjoy them.

      • Begin Anew Day

        But I still get to sort them….right?

      Bezos has always been a huge libertarian jerk, and he runs his company accordingly. His employees are miserable, some suicidally. I don’t like buying from Amazon any more than I like buying from Walmart, but unlike with Walmart, sometimes you don’t have much choice.

    but it really did trump a yuuuge favor. does trump/gop really want to get into competitive creativity with the non-g(r)op- ers?
    you know what they have done voluntarily right? trump couldn’t pay davinci to produce genius work like that.

    • jesuswasablack

      What exactly the fuck does “prolly” mean?

      • TJ Barke

        It’s shiftless internet teenager speak for “probably”.

        • Pinkham’s Law

          “shiftless internet teenager speak.” Well, in 1995, anyway.

          • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

            Central/southern Indiana around 1985. I heard “prolly” four or five times a day. Sometimes, I’d hear “probley”, also too, but those were the more edumacated folk.

          It really is annoying, are you too fucking lazy to spell Probably or just too fucking stupid?

        so I have a problem with how I read words like probably and how I hear it being used. I see pro.bab.ly. But I hear prob.ly and other confusing variations. I see kids use prolly I settle for prolly.

      • shaar dula

        prolly is some thing that is not an exact fucking thing . it’s something most likely, may be, may not kind of thing.

  • Pinkham’s Law

    Minor point re: protocol. As the ranking person there, the Prez Elect is, by definition, at the head of the table. The further away someone is, the lower their status. Rather than being at the head of the table, the kiddies are in the lowest status places they can be, while still being *at* the table.

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      You really think Trump knows shit about protocol? It’s all about his ego. Protocol be damned.

      His kiddies should have been locked in the toilet.

      • Pinkham’s Law

        He knows all about flattering and humiliating other people, so yes. He is well aware of the fact that he is the most VIP of all the VIPs there, and that the closer he lets another VIP sit, the more Important that person is.

        • arglebargle

    Basically, then, he’s just summoning people to meetings for the sake of having meetings, rather than doing the work of preparing to be President. That sounds about right.

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      I read somewhere that, “The primary purpose of meetings is to preserve or establish the pecking-order.”

      In my experience, that has turned out to be true most of the time.

  • WiscoJoe

    A lot of these people actually look embarrassed to be there, even the people who supported Trump. I get there’s a certain “libertarian” mindset that finds solace in delegitimizing authority and power (outside of their own), which explains why some of these douches can champion someone they know to be a grossly incompetent vulgarian. I have no idea how the rest of these people can get through this without sacrificing their own dignity or patriotism. LOL, JK. Their massive salaries probably help minimize whatever cognitive dissonance or sense of shame a normal person would experience in such a situation. Must be nice, fuckers.

    • OrdinaryJoe

      They are not embarrassed to be there. They are embarrassed they got caught in a photo.

    • TJ Barke

      They don’t have patriotism.

    Somewhat OT: Article on Vox explains how the “alt-right” movement draws in young male recruits with the lure of male friendship and commiseration over their woman troubles, and radicalizes them into xenophobes and white nationalists.

      What, men are incapable of finding and bonding platonically with other men? It’s a good thing there isn’t sportsball, or pubs, or community building, or work, or university, or multi-player online gaming, or wonkette to help them then.

      • Moebym of the Resistance

        Online gaming is mentioned in the article. But as for the other venues, I guess they just want a place of their own in which women aren’t allowed.

        • Jennifer R

          Like their personal lives?

      • Slavakitty

        This isn’t just about male bonding. Did you read the last paragraph?

        “The ease with which the alt-right channels male insecurity around
        women’s rights into an ideology of white supremacy ultimately
        illustrates that the paths by which men wander into the alt-right
        movement are deceptive. While many of the movement’s male-centered
        online communities may seem to offer something of value to the men who
        join them, the alt-right movement has never been about helping men cope
        with low self-esteem, relationship problems, or their personal pain and
        insecurity. In fact, it’s never particularly concerned itself with
        building up men as individuals at all. Instead, it’s about maintaining a
        sense of power at all costs over an ever-expanding list of designated
        targets.”

        • Dazza

          Totes agree. I have lurked on “We Hunted the Mammoth” for a few years, and it was certainly evident that the overlap between misogyny and racism was very clear – even before Cheeto Benito. I am peeved, however, at the self-described incels/MGTOWs:

          Flippin’ ‘eck, lads – if you want solid, non-crazy friendships, with real-life benefits, try some face-to-face interaction with people of shared hobbies/sports/work/school elements who won’t bullshit you for their own dominance play, who will really BE there for when you need help. Plus, they will likely know some wonderful real-life women to introduce you to. That’s how I met my Spousal Unit. We were introduced by mutual acquaintances.

          I mean, I have Wonkette people whom I love spending time with, but I also have family, mates and hobbyist-types I hang with, too. It requires me to overcome a lifetime’s worth of shyness, but the real-time family and friends of many years’ standing give me day-to-day steadiness when things get weird.

    Hire my kids and I’ll throw you some government contracts and tax cuts. What d’ya got for me?

  • Vincent Ricola

    This is a vindictive dick Trump move because twitter banned Tila Tequila for being a nazi. No snark, I really think this is probably the reason.

    • notaten

      Vindictive Dick was the name of my Grunge Metal band

        Tila Tequila was the name of my self-hating heroin(e) band

    • SuspectedDemocrat

      His kids just want to make sure they know exactly how to divest his assets.

      • notaten

        You probably meant this as snark, but you are probably right. Or, more correctly, how to make it SEEM like he is divesting his “assets”.

        • SuspectedDemocrat

          Oh I’m sure they’re doing some serious insider trading. And of course the unspoken message is you better be nice to the kids when they want to make a deal.

      • cmd

        They were also probably there to make sure he didn’t totally shit himself. Maybe there was some kind of electronic buzzer thing they would push if he went too far. Not sure where the line would be for buzzing him. Because he seemed pretty inane. As usual.

    • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

      Trump on a tank.

      You will never see Trump in a tank. His abundant fundament would not fit through the hatch.

      • TX Dept. of Brad Relations

        Lol, I love how the tread is gold plated – cause you wanna use gold for parts that will be covered in mud and blood.

        • SuspectedDemocrat

          I wonder if the shag carpet inside interferes with the drink cart.

          • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

            To cut costs, the shag carpet is made out of the same material as Ivanka’s flammable scarves. Quite appropriate in a combat vehicle, I daresay.

        • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

          On half the treads’ surfaces the gold plate would be completely worn off in a few seconds. Hey if Trump wants to throw money away…it’s probably not his.

          • TX Dept. of Brad Relations

            Heh, that’s assuming their gold plated, if they were pure gold (ha, like Donnie has that kind of money), they’d just be a puddle within minutes.

          • Hamilton Ω, AKA Formerly DN

            Ah, yup.

      A couple of the reviews are funny, but most of them are about how it’s a cheap piece of crap made in China.

  • jowgajen

    I don’t think Twitter has value, and I mean that in the literal sense. I wouldn’t buy any Twitter stock. It hasn’t been monetized at all. It does not have a unique niche that it fills. If it disappeared tomorrow, nothing would happen. People would move to another platform and be just as happy. Or just stop micro blogging. Twitter, as much as it can be sometimes amusing, adds no value to the Universe.

    Not mad there is no Twitter, for whatever reason the Orange One has. Also not mad that tech leaders went when the presumptive next Executive calls, they have to work with a new administration.

    The Drumpf kids sitting at that table piss me off to no end, however. That is the real issue.

    • JustDon’tSayDittos,Brad

      Preach!

    • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

      Which is why he should get off of Twitter. There are so many other platforms that people are using that he could spread his comments on. Also, too, he could have won the election without Twitter because it is no insignificant.

  • clairence

    I love that boingboing calls him Predator-elect.
    Sarcasm. But not really.

  • Mavenmaven

    I really believe Donald when he says that he’s separating from the business which will be run by his kids when they are at his meetings with business people.

    • JustDon’tSayDittos,Brad

      Totally believe it! It’s just what normal administrations look like. Just look at Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela,…

    • TX Dept. of Brad Relations

      The way I read that, and I’m not a lawyer, is he can’t make Ivanka Treasury Secetary or have her employed, promoted or advanced in the Treasury Dept.

      That’s low paying jobs anyway.

      I’d be interested to see how that relates to the Transition team, but I think that’s a private political thing, no?

      • Doug Langley

        I thought she was going to be Secretary of Fashion.

      • Juan de Payaso

        That’s how I read it. I bolded the parts where it specifically mentioned “president” because we all know how Donald likes to find exemptions and loopholes in the law. This one sounds pretty cut and dry – no job for Ivanka.

        Then again, we’re talking about the law and different rules for different folks. We’ll see…

        • TX Dept. of Brad Relations

          Aye. I was actually going to say it didn’t apply to Presidents until I saw you included that bit.

          Nice find.

          • Juan de Payaso

            I agree with your point about how he’s not violating any laws now, because he’s a private citizen. Good point. I’m looking forward to this whole, “bring your kids to work every day” thing ending on Jan 20.

        • Historicat

          He’ll do whatever he wants, slap some sort of fig leaf over it, and go on his merry way. It’s not like Congress is going to stand up to him. Sure, there could be some lawsuits but I don’t expect them to get to far. Even if they do, he’ll probably get a 5-4 win in the Supreme Court.

      • azeyote

        • cmd

          I did read a rumor that she would be occupying teh First Lady offices in the WH.

      • shaar dula

        that’s because we assume ivanka is his dotter, but what if it could be shown that DJT is Ivanka’s thrice removed (forcibly each time) cousin?

      • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

        Only proving that SV is not really much better than the rest of the country.

  • georgiaburning

    This was a “protecting shareholder value” exercise for these guys. If they were invited but blew him off, Trump would write an angry tweet and their stock would drop. Somebody would then sue. It might make it harder to get financing or government contracts, also.

    A few of them will publicly go full Carly and gush like a teenage girl meeting a rock star but more will just smile a lot. Then once they get home, take a long shower and burn their clothes.

    • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

      Funny. I remember some business owners openly rejecting Obama when he became president.

      • georgiaburning

        Some did, but he was pretty popular in Silicon Valley. Even got a pass for still using a Blackberry

      But listening to that idiot speak in single syllables for an hour or two, jesus. And you know one cannot reply in the technical terms one might like to use, I am sure the eyes glaze over and he thinks about Ivanka, or the adolescent he was filmed raping in Moscow way back when.

  • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

    Wait. Where’s Marisa Mayer from Yahoo? I thought she would have been part of that group too.

    • georgiaburning

      Yahoo sold itself to Verizon last July, Marisa walked away with a nice bundle. Ginni Rometty (IBM) and Safra Catz (Oracle) were up in the tower with the boys today. Will Meg Whitman (HP Enterprise) do the walk of shame to visit Trump or remain able to look her kids in the eye? She was a NeverTrump Republican and held fundraisers for Hillary.

      • Resistance Engineer Red Bird

        I know about the other women. I just thought Marisa was part of that inner circle that hung out with Thiel. Also I didn’t realize she left. I thought she was staying on after the sale. I forgot about Meg. Maybe she wasn’t invited either. Which makes me wonder how this group came together and why it was formed in the first place.

      • Old Man Yells at Cloud

        I would’t worry about Meg begin able to look her kids in the eye after doing a Lil’Donnie walk of shame. Like all the HP CEOs since John Young, she has no sense of shame.

      Never trust corporations. Even if they are well-intentioned, they can screw you over just through the complex web of policies they all have.

    “I just told you that we met with Leo DiCaprio last week, and we met with Vice President Al Gore,” he said. “As you just mentioned, Ivanka is working on this issue. The president-elect is a very common sense oriented guy and basically what he said is if we reduce carbon emissions, the air is going to get cleaner.”

    Now, if Abraham understood himself called to challenge God with such ferocity — God, to whom all honor is due and all of whose ways are justice (Ps. 145:17) — how much more is it our place to intervene with a president of flesh and blood, a man of no moral distinction who has cavalierly threatened mass deportations, torture and the abandonment of the civilized west, who courts the support of the most repugnant elements in our society? Psalm 8 declares: “You have made the human being only a little lower than gods and have crowned him with glory and honour. You made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet.” Of no human being is this encomium truer than of the President of the United States, who wields more power and destructive force than any king or Pharaoh in history. Americans alone may vote for the president, but our president indeed “has all things under his feet.” With an acquiescent congress at his disposal and having inherited an ongoing War on Terror that has profoundly expanded the prerogatives of his office and curtailed the rights of American citizens and those under American control, Trump, stands to be, perhaps, the most powerful president in history — a little lower than the gods indeed, with all things under his feet.

    Now nothing in the story of Abraham teaches us how to confront power. Abraham, after all, had earned a private audience with God and that position of trust to reprove Him. We may challenge power in private or in public, depending on which approach seems to us most prudent and most likely to achieve the ends of justice. But we are forbidden — forbidden — from forgetting our foundational obligation to act first and foremost as students of Avraham Avinu, our father, Abraham, to confront and to challenge power and demand not only our own safety but righteousness and justice for all. In this crucial moment, Donald Trump is not Ahashverosh, and we may not look to our Esther. The incoming American president has promised to wield the God-like power of his office lawlessly, capriciously, immorally, against our fellow citizens, against our neighbors, against fellow human beings. We must be like Abraham and demand that that man who will become, for all intents and purposes, the Judge of all the World, do justice.

        I can understand Abraham wanting to kill his kid, I’ve heard my child-rearing friends echo the sentiment regularly. However, what Abraham did to Hagar, I cannot forgive (I think he exiled her).

    The Mittbot didn’t deserve all that SoS shit.

    edit: this ass kissing stuff makes me sick.

    Holding a sign with the president and vp on it is racial? Going to be an interesting 4 years. Turning their backs is somethiing they have done many times.

    Don’t fuckin act as if there is no context to it at all.

      it may be some thoughtless teenage prank

      This is all stupid. I’m a student and none of this is racial. We had our theme and it was farmers of America. The Trump sign was simply a dare dared by another student. Miss June, we, Warrensburg students and staff are not racist as half of our school consist of non white students. We ACCEPT them. The turning of the backs would’ve happened no matter what. Colored or not. This is way bigger than it needs to be. We’re/I’m sorry our traditions offended you. But I don’t know what “Black Lives matter” has to deal with any of this as you mentioned in your post. No student was harmed. You started this by being the ONLY one offended. I’m going to leave this alone as should everyone else. This is just nonsense as yes. The only thing wrong was the Trump sign but. It had NO meaning.

      Thank you, and have a wonderful day

      but you have to think about the players too right? how do you know which fire is fire?

        It had no meaning.

        DARES DO NOT WORK THAT WAY

        “Colored or not.”

        Nope. No racism here, please move along.

    “while Twitter claims to be a venue that promotes the free exchange of ideas, it’s clear that it’s leadership’s left wing ideology literally trumps that.”

    Think of the emoji as a gay wedding cake and Twitter as “Christian” bakers. Problem solved.

    I thought Murkan flags with gold fringe were bad? I can’t keep up any more.

    I don’t understand why they even agreed to be there.

      Given the upcoming explosion of the surveillance state it probably makes sense for these companies to play nice as long as they can.

        Silly you. Don’t you know it’s the liberals that want to take away your freedom?

    I have a very short list of reasons why it would be nice to be filthy rich, one of which is owning my own jet and never having to sit for hours at an airport gate ever again, and I just added a new item to that list – being invited to attend a Trump function, and publicly and loudly refusing the invitation. Or I could attend, and publicly cut Trump dead. It could be fun.

    No president since Richard Nixon has rivaled the Donald for awkwardness in having physical contact with other human beings.

  • WwwwwwwwWAIT. Twitter, at some point, failed to do exactly what he wanted, and he still uses it? I believe we have found an Achilles heel. Or thumb. Tiny, doll-like thumb.

    I trust this will be the straw that stirs Trump to quit Twitter. I am sure there is a popular, conservative-leaning social-media medium he can switch to. Oh that’s right, there isn’t…… save perhaps, Facebook. Just as conservatives aren’t creative enough to create adequate comedy, social satire or entertainment at all, these self-professed entrepeneurs have no choice but to default to Twitter etc while whining about the purported bias.

    • sgt. jmk of the résistance

      Didn’t white supremaci…I mean alt-righties all move over to Nazitwitter so they can all be as racist as they want without facing any mean old consequences? I would imagine Trumpery will make that jump pretty soon also too, to be with his people.

    I’m surprised Trump had Bezos there, what with all the mean stuff he lets WaPo say about the Orange Overlord.
