Trump Just Retweeted Article About Human Cannibalism and Everyone is Seriously Confused

Donald Trump has had a rough summer. Heck, just look at his August, his September!

Let’s take a look at the past few weeks.

Axios reported that on multiple occasions, Trump has suggested to aides that we try to stop hurricanes by dropping nuclear bombs on them. “You could hear a gnat fart in that meeting,” a person present on one such occasion told them. “People were astonished. After the meeting ended, we thought, ‘What the f—? What do we do with this?’”

Trump suggested that we buy Greenland from the Danes; amid worldwide mockery, the Danish prime minister called the idea “absurd,” and a petulant Trump responded by cancelling a scheduled trip to Denmark, saying the prime minister was “nasty,” a word he often uses to describe women who contradict him.

He tweeted that “American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China.” The president has no power to “hereby order” private companies to stop dealing with a foreign country, let alone by tweet.

He tweeted a surveillance image of an Iranian launch site, potentially giving foreign adversaries sensitive information about American intelligence-gathering capabilities.

He repeatedly mused that America’s involvement in Afghanistan could be ended very easily by committing the worst genocide in human history, but noted that he has decided against that particular strategy.

In the midst of a tirade on trade with China, he looked to the heavens and said, “I am the chosen one!”

Sounds pretty crazy, huh?

So, if I told you Trump retweeted an article about human cannibalism, would you even be surprised at this point?

Well, he did.

What?

The article Trump retweeted was from the alt-right publication Breitbart, and discussed a Swedish scientist opining that people eating other people is a good way to combat climate change.

What?

Twitter had some thoughts:
