Alrighty then.
1 - @davekarpf, I read the tweet and laughed. I regret not retweeting it.

I found this @Slate essay from 2017 about a @bretstephensNY interview with @voxdotcom to be enlightening. Thank you, @bing, for putting it in the right sidebar when I went looking for Brett's age (45)

Dear @washingtonpost - seriously folks. Update your stock photo of @bretstephensNY! He barely looks 21 in that pic.

I didn’t have the full story before, but if Bret Stephens is feeling cheated I will ABSOLUTELY come to his house and insult him in front of his wife and children. thedailybeast.com/new-york-times… via @thedailybeast
Although now I feel bad because I’m pretty sure #BretStephens is a frustrated bottom who, thanks to his uptight upbringing, lacks the ability to cope with and verbalize his desires.
“Why don’t you come to my house and call me a filthy insect in front of my wife and children!” #BretStephens typed, pausing to wipe his sweaty palms on his thighs. Why was it suddenly so hot in this newsroom?

The PERFECT thing is that this asshole tries to intimidate an online critic by CCing his boss, when called out in public quit Twitter, and then sought out the platform *where he knew he wouldn’t be held accountable for his actions* to complain. This is WEAPONS GRADE ENTITLEMENT.
The ability of #BretBug to think “I’m going to use my unfettered access to national television to complain about how a literary prof oppressed me with a joke” and not see the irony there should be immediately disqualifying for any job as a public thinker or writer.
I’m a little hurt, obviously, as I’ve called out #BretStephens as a preening intellectual lightweight lickspittle multiple times and gotten way more retweets than this professor and he’s never tried to contact my studio heads.

. @SRuhle @MSNBC To sum up#DonaldNorcross & #BretStephens: #Trump is the same guy he was 2 yrs ago when #MikePence, #MittRomney, #LindseyGraham, #MarcoRubio, et al, ALL WARNED US that Trump is dangerous. A egocentric know nothing. A traitor. A criminal. & instead of sticking...1
@SRuhle @MSNBC ...to what they know damn well to be true, they’ve elevated this piece of shit above the best interests of our country, our citizens, the world. Lest we forget the words of #TedCruz whose wife was viciously attacked by Trump & who is now supporting him. HOW CAN ANYONE VOTE...2
...for a politician who doesn’t have the moral fortitude to even defend his own family? Texans better think long & hard about having someone like that represent them. Because it’s clear: the GOP is no longer interested in what’s best for the country./3
