Trump Retweets Masturbation-Themed Tweet and Everyone on Twitter is Shocked

Hours after writing out the word “bullsh*t” in a tweet, Donald Trump on Friday retweeted a post that contained a lewd reference to masturbation as he railed against the Mueller report.

Trump was reacting on Friday to a Twitter user who commented on The Washington Post’s front page of the print edition.

The Twitter user, Scott Atkins, blasted the Post’s front page, whose top headline reads: “Mueller details Russian interference, Trump’s attempts to disrupt probe.”

Atkins, who is the founder of a fantasy football league, tweeted: “This is why nobody but the @DNC circle jerk takes this seriously anymore.”

“That front page is a disgrace but in its disgrace, many wake up.”

There was widespread reaction on Twitter to the president retweeting a post with the word “circle jerk.”

“Imagine this will be the first time “circle jerk” is preserved in the Presidential Records Act, but maybe not?” Josh Dawsey, a White House reporter for the Post whose tweet initially drew the ire of Atkins, tweeted on Friday.

“If you had asked me on Monday if the week would conclude with the president retweeting a man with a fantasy football business yelling at [Josh Dawsey] I would have said “that sounds right”,” journalist Olivia Nuzzi tweeted.

Michael Del Moro tweeted: “Feel like I need to break my Twitter vacation to point out that the President of the United States just retweeted the phrase “circle jerk”.”

Others were rightfully disgusted:
