Twitter Tears Trump A New One For Saying He’s A “Man With Common Sense”

We don't think he knows what that means.

Donald Trump can’t discern his asshole from his elbow when it comes to the situation currently going down between our country and Iran.

Just recently, Iran downed an unmanned drone and Trump has been wishy-washy on what to do about it. One minute he’s bragging about harsh retaliation against the country and the next he’s talking as though the attack wasn’t intentional. Then the next time you turn around, he’s weirdly chirping about making “Iran Great Again” — as if they want any of that bullshit.

But in his indecisive state on the matter, Trump has pissed in the Cheerios of both sides, it seems. Many people don’t want to see yet another war fired up by Trump prematurely pulling the retaliation trigger. Yet many of his supporters, including his beloved Fox News, feel like he’s not being nearly proactive enough, and are trying to goad him into doing more. And Donald really isn’t used to his most favorite news network singing anything but his praises.


So today, he tried to set the record straight. And in doing so, got himself brutally roasted yet again by the Twitter platform that he so dearly loves.

Speaking with reporters, Donald touched on the situation with Iran, specifically about his supposed decision to pull out of an airstrike attack at the last minute because he suddenly discovered that it would take 150 lives. In defending himself, Trump tried to claim that he’s neither soft-hearted nor a hard-ass, he merely has common sense.

“Everybody was saying I’m a warmonger and now they say I’m a dove. And I think I’m neither, you want to know the truth. I’m a man with common sense, and that’s what we need in this country is common sense,” Trump stated to reporters.

And boy, did Twitter let him have it:

Common sense would have been a washed-up reality star knowing damn well he had no business becoming president of a nation. The common sense boat sailed two years ago, Donnie boy.
