History, plagiarism, aliens, grenade launchers, and Hillary
Some tweets you may find interesting on a late Spring day
None dare call it plagiarism
Okay, let's just call it an interesting parphrase of Neville Chamberlain. Historian Jack Pitney on yesterday's address by the president at West Point:
Trump: "It is not the duty of our military to solve ancient conflicts in faraway lands, that no one has ever heard of." His writers plagiarized Neville Chamberlain, who spoke of a "quarrel in a faraway country, between people of whom we know nothing." https://t.co/Jvd3Dj9sNT— Jack Pitney (@jpitney) June 13, 2020
Why would you want to paraphrase Neville Chamberlain?
Speaking of Germany (this time on statues)
One thing you notice walking around German cities is no Hitler statues or Nazi flags in public spaces. Yet somehow Germany hasn’t forgotten that history. Weird, huh? https://t.co/5c0TO2NQOU— The Rude Pundit (@rudepundit) June 13, 2020

Don’t they know that the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a grenade launcher is a good guy with grenade launcher?*
“The Los Angeles School Police Department, which serves the nation’s second-largest school system, will return three grenade launchers but intends to keep 61 rifles and a Mine Resistant Ambush Protected armored vehicle.”— Jake Hanrahan (@Jake_Hanrahan) June 13, 2020
The school police? What? https://t.co/qN8X5l6kj0

Finally, an "oldie-but-goodie" from our President
The way President Obama runs down the stairs of Air Force 1, hopping & bobbing all the way, is so inelegant and unpresidential. Do not fall!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 23, 2014
