#DeleteYourAccount Open Thread

Oh, FFS.

So #DeleteYourAccount is trending on Twitter, and I just had to look. So this happened, and on Hillary Clinton’s very special day, no less. Obama liked her! And The Donald had something nasty to say about it, as is his wont. So of course, as is her habit, she blew the moment.

Delete Your Account

Screen grabbed, because I suspect it’s going to get deleted [chortle] soon. Here’s Trump’s response.

Score for today’s match: 15-Love.

This is an open thread.

    The Hillary tweet didn’t make any sense. Do you really think it will be deleted?

    • And yeah, I think it could disappear, because ConservoTwitter will be all over it with 12 different hashtags about her deleted emails, and one of them might stick.

      • lyn says:

        Like this?

        • That one’s kind of lame. Here’s an early one:

          But they will get better. I just hope The Donald doesn’t blow it, but I don’t have a lot of faith. Left-o-Twitter is having a field day with it. Because they’ve got memes. Lots of them. BUt I’m not sure that can win elections.

          The Donald does need to do something, though. Like have a fucking drink, and chill.

          • Venus says:

            Why does Trump need to do something? He is competitive or even in states that “swing” or that he could put into play (like PA) after just finishing a primary where he had $62 million in negative ads run against him and Hillary just came out of a primary where she had ZERO dollars in negatives ad run against her.
            Literally, the GE *just* started & people are running around with their hair on fire acting like Trump is 10 points down. He isn’t — as I said, he is even with/within MOE or ahead of her in all key states.
            Even the FOX national poll they just released showing Hillary 42/Trump 39 had to be fucked with. Last month the poll had Hillary 42/Trump 45, but I looked at the internals of the poll. Fox polled 41% Dems and 35% Reps this time;
            Last time Fox Polled 41% Dem to 40% Reps.
            Fox manipulated the poll to show Hillary in the lead — and it’s still within the MOE.

          • Reread, Venus. I said he needs to have a drink and chill. That means he needs to not get all hair-trigger tonight on this, as he likes to do. He doesn’t need to actually do anything other than not immediately lose his cool.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’ve already seen “should you be joking about “deleting?” in some of the HRC responses to the original. Glad you grabbed it🙂 DJT’s response was the best. She’s so out of touch, definitely not Hillary 20.08.

  2. Okay, for those not in the know, “Delete your account” is a meme. Here’s a rundown of some of them from March of this year:

    My comments aren’t posting again.

  5. It’s going to be all weekend…and into next week.

    delete emails

  6. Okay, to be clear here, because there seems to be some confusion here AND on Twitter. I’m not suggesting this will trifle with Trump in the long-term. He could get itchy fingers and blow it up tonight, but that wouldn’t work in his favor. Hillary landed one in the useless Twitter wars that Left-o-Twitter likes to play with their memes that Conservo-Twitter doesn’t always understand.

    But Hillary will come to regret this, because if there’s two things you can say about Conservo-Twitter it’s they learn fast and ALWAYS RESPOND. This will eventually haunt her. But she got her dig in good tonight.

      I sense butthurt among the GOPe. They know if Trump pulls this off, they’re done and done.

      • lyn says:


        Defeated GOP 2012 candidate Mitt Romney is hosting a weekend convention of anti-Trump ‘Republicans-in-exile’ at a secluded Utah retreat to discuss possible “post-Trump” scenarios.
        The “Experts and Enthusiasts Summit” – or “E2” summit – is at the Stein Eriksen Lodge Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, according to The Washington Post.

        The festivities kick off Thursday night. The Republican movers and shakers will reportedly discuss their plot to plant a Trump alternative candidate into the race. The effort has fizzled since Bill Kristol’s pick — obscure writer David French — decided not to run, and because the Republican National Committee publicly aligned behind Trump after the Indiana primary.

    I guess I’m missing something. I understand sort of memes, etc. But Hillary in her tweet told Trump to “shut up” boiled down to the bone. I think I agree with Althouse that the object of “thin skinned”, etc is to attempt to shut him down. That is what I thought when I saw the bitchy, snotty, “delete” shit. As Althouse (who I don’t usually read) said “So let’s think about this word. My first thought is, it’s just an old trick to get your interlocutor to stop talking, like saying he’s being “defensive.” Who has not encountered an antagonist who criticizes you and then, when you respond, says something like: “Oh, I guess I hit a nerve” or “Don’t be so defensive” or “You’re awfully thin-skinned” or “You need to grow a thicker skin”? It’s a call for unilateral disarmament! They want to keep attacking you, while you demonstrate how good you are at not fighting back. To be called “thin-skinned” heightens the aggravation yet if you react, they’ll glory in your proving of their point. Aha! So you are thin-skinned! They knew it!”

    This is elite, lefty, Shut Up 101. All the cute memes, twits, bullshit, it is still telling a presidential candidate to shut up. It worked in 2008 and 2012 but I don’t think it will in 2016. What is Hillary and the media and her enablers going to do? Hit Trump with a lamp? Hit him in the face? Or get goons in San Jose to beat his supporters up to SHUT THEM AND TRUMP UP? Shut up works until it doesn’t anymore. It don’t work no more Hill. Throw a ‘shut up” fit for someone who is afraid of you and gives a shit.

    • Lulu says:

      OOPS. Left off a link and credit to Althouse: http://althouse.blogspot.com/2016/06/about-anti-trumpers-insult-of-moment.html It really is a baby fit of shut up.

    • votermom says:

      I agree, Lily. Now that I’ve had the meme explained to me, it seems like a poor choice of memes to respond with for Hillary, because a) it literally reminds everyone of her email scandal and b) it has the whole imperious command thing which reinforces her image of being queen.
      It might have been funnier if she’d responded with klown’s favorite meme of ” I sense butthurt” or some other meme.

      • Lulu says:

        When you have no argument, answer, or sense of humor the left says “you racist!” or “shut up!” which are the same things. It is tiresome, puerile, lazy, and stupid. Enough of it. From Hillary it from her entitlement, “it is her turn”, she is smarter than everyone else (even though she is too fucking dumb to protect the nation’s secrets and is actually a moron), and I suspect some deal she cut with Obama in 2008 that he is going to double cross her on because….she is stupid. She wanted out of Big Dog’s shadow and now she can’t hack it. It really was ALL Big Dog and she has just piggy-backed and now it shows. What a dummy she is.

    I knew when Hillary said Bill would handle the economy that she did not have a clue. She wants to run a social issues campaign which is her bailiwick. It is feel good shit. Rape colleges, men bashing (which is hilarious when you think about she would be a second rate law firm in Chicago if she hadn’t met Bill), illegal immigrants are our future, Climate Armageddon!, give generously to CGI (so she can skim off the top) and save the world to her target audience. That stuff can work when times and the economy is flush. It isn’t, the economy is failing, and she wants to talk about shit that doesn’t matter much if you are broke and/or unemployed. She is so tone deaf that she advocates job loss in coal country to push the elite social issue of climate change (to transfer wealth). This isn’t her year. 2008 was and she blew it and now she is too old and sick and tone deaf. Her victory is she has maneuvered Bernie out who had the economic message.

    Ha ha! The idiot anti-Trumps in the MSM, DNC & GOPe have now moved on to fantasizing that Trump will just “quit.” LOL
    Yes, yes, after lashing out physically (San Jose) and screaming for him to SHUT UP!!! (racist, delete your account, etc) like they toddlers they are, Trump will just give in, like a mommy giving the baby a cookie, just to make the tantrum stop.

    How Clinton Donor Got on Sensitive Intelligence Board

    Newly released State Department emails help reveal how a major Clinton Foundation donor was placed on a sensitive government intelligence advisory board even though he had no obvious experience in the field, a decision that appeared to baffle the department’s professional staff.

    The emails further reveal how, after inquiries from ABC News, the Clinton staff sought to “protect the name” of the Secretary, “stall” the ABC News reporter and ultimately accept the resignation of the donor just two days later.

    So deliciously mean and catty. LOL. “Hillary’s role of providing financial security for Billy was part of her motivation for the series of financial crimes (yes, crimes) that she committed over the decades’.

    ‘Hillary was upholding her part of the deal to get Billy elected president, after which it would be her turn to be the first woman in the Oval Office’, lawyer and author Dolly Kyle writes in her bombshell book Hillary, The Other Woman, published by WND Books.”

      If Hillary did choose Warren, it would guarantee their defeat. The first woman POTUS might have some appeal, but two women would cause more apprehension. I am not saying that is right, but that it is true.

      “Hillary wants your wampum”
      “Warren and Clinton put the red and white into red, white, and blue”
      “Let’s scalp Trump!”
      “Me Hillary, She Tonto”
      “Trump’s Last Stand”
      “Hillary Clinton: A true kemosabe”

      And I guess I am really getting old, because I did not think the tweet was funny or clever. I have seen it used on Twitter quite often, but it does nothing for me. It just means shut up. Big effing deal. Excuse me, back to my rocking chair I go, lol.

    I looked forward to the day a woman would be POTUS from the time when I was a little girl. I can’t believe how disappointed I am. I worked hard for women to have a seat at the table and on the playing field, and now the special snowflake women are ceding their seat to guys in dresses and need fainting couches when someone points out you can’t count on someone to always be there to take care of you when you behave stupidly. There are some days when I want to go back to being the only woman in a room full of guys again. Before I knew what women today really want and what they expect the rest of us to settle for.

  43. Mt.Laurel says:

    I sometimes lurk as a couple general column type sites that attract – shall we say – a certain gene pool. I do so because it helps me realize what I am likely to encounter when interacting with certain organizations/committees/individuals that cannot be avoided her in LaLa Land East also know as DC metro. So one of today’s topics had them all complaining about being gendered and called horrid things such as Miss/Ma’am/Sir/Guys/Gals/Whatever.

    This comment from one person who must be a real treat in its’ office sums up the conversation:

    Because there are people who aren’t male or female and they’d like a title too? Plenty of places insist on you putting down something, especially on online forms.

    It did not help that several pointed out how people like Hill and her new best bud Liz would not stand for such atrocities.

    I am going to go make myself a nice cup of tea and maybe have some chocolate because I do not have any bourbon or whiskey at the office.

      😀 Just had a dab of ice cream in my coffee and a little brownie.

    • elliesmom says:

      I’ve gone back to my dad’s southern roots and just call everyone “ya’ll”. Like “Hey, ya’ll, Did ya get my social security application?” It sounds so much more friendly than writing a formal salutation in a business letter. I wouldn’t want to offend anyone at the social security office. They might hold up my benefits.

      • lyn says:

        Sounds good.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        Oh my they got into that as well and how demeaning ya’ll , you all or even worse you guys sounds. Because guys is not gender neutral. (-‸ლ)

        I also use ya’ll/you all after living in the south because it hits a similar tone to the northern you guys but sounds more pleasant to the ear. The ivy league types seem to hate it but most regular workers bees in the area response really well since it is warm and inclusive – something the elites do not care for at all.

        • elliesmom says:

          When I went to “teacher school”, we were discouraged from using “guys” as it isn’t gender neutral. We were encouraged to call the kids “you folks”. “You people” was definitely a no-no. But the kids got a big kick out of the Boston lady calling them “ya’ll”. It came naturally to me because it’s what I heard at home. As a college student I was often the only woman in the class, and “Good Morning, Gentlemen” was often how the class was greeted. One very proper English gentleman started his class everyday with “Good morning, Gentlemen and My Lady”. It endeared him to me greatly.

          • taw46 says:

            Oh, I like that English gentleman.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            although where I grew up it was used for girls/boys/mixed, I can see not using you guys for younger children who would not be familiar with the idiom.

            My adjunct teaching was adults in the military on base so Ladies & Gentleman was the tone. The regular college students loved or hated the more formal setting. One complained to the university about “roll call” and the suffocating military niceties . The university told me to stop taking attendance and relax my stance (and I had one of the more lenient approaches that I was able to negotiate over time with the brass). I suggested they take it up with the Pentagon. Ms complainer dropped the class.

    Kaufman came out of the closet on Thursday.

    Oh not that he is gay. He is. No, the news is that after much soul-searching he made public that he may possibly support Trump. I realize that is not much of a stretch for a Post writer. But that does not mean he is immune to ostracization.
