President Donald Trump’s tweet about “World War Six” on Wednesday morning immediately sent people on social media into a meltdown.
Trump tweeted “we would be in World War Six by now” if he had listened to his former national security adviser John Bolton, who reportedly makes the Democrats’ case for his impeachment in his forthcoming book “The Room Where It Happened.”
For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, “begged” me for a non Senate approved job, which I gave him despite many saying “Don’t do it, sir,” takes the job, mistakenly says “Libyan Model” on T.V., and..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 29, 2020
....many more mistakes of judgement, gets fired because frankly, if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now, and goes out and IMMEDIATELY writes a nasty & untrue book. All Classified National Security. Who would do this?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 29, 2020
Critics reminded Trump that he hired Bolton in the first place and suggested his posts showed he feared his former aide being called to testify against him in his Senate impeachment trial.
Responded one: “So, you would have had us fighting in FOUR more world wars before you figured out what the problem was?? For such a great leader, you sure do pick some winners!”
“I woke up to World War Six trending. How long was I asleep?” another fired back as the term went viral.

It’s just Trump and his tertiary syphilis vomiting psychotic paranoid maniacal delusional incriminating batshit lunacy all over Twitter again.
You made a highly unqualified guy a National Security Advisor?!? You see how that makes you a complete and total moron, yes?— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) January 29, 2020
There was no lower position you could graciously fit this guy in, against your best wise and unquestioned judgement? Mar-a-Lago bellhop? Stephen Miller’s armband dry cleaner? Mike Pompeo’s milkshake stirrer? You instead made him NSA?— Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) January 29, 2020

When something as stupid as World War Six is trending, 99 percent of the time it’s because of something idiotic that Trump said.— David Weissman (@davidmweissman) January 29, 2020

1) He hired the guy with all these blemishes on his record
2) He kept him on in spite of the mistakes
3) He just admitted he'll give away an important post just because someone begs the right way.
World War Six indeed. https://t.co/DGioRaAK0l
World War Six? Hmm. You aren't very good at math are you? Your #TurdReich travesty is a tragicomedy of errors, idiocy and incompetence. What a cretinous, criminal cockwaffle you are, an embarrassment not of riches, but of poorly educated peons proselytizing your propaganda. Sad!— Lesley Abravanel🆘 (@lesleyabravanel) January 29, 2020
If John Bolton was as bad a choice for National Security Adviser as Trump tweeted this morning--someone who could have gotten us into World War Six--then Trump should resign immediately. He didn't just put our national security at risk in Ukraine. He's doing it every single day.— The Daily Edge (@TheDailyEdge) January 29, 2020
The Trump Model:— NeuroPsychoPhD (@SethN12) January 29, 2020
1) Inserts lying “tell” by calling himself “sir”
2) Twitter trashes his latest public critic
3) “World War Six” - childlike, immature logic and reasoning
4) “Begging” invective meant to subordinate someone who, in reality, has far more merit pic.twitter.com/1UxlslxqVc

I can help. I'm Adjunct Professor at Trump Univ MNT Dept of Mathematics & Numberry Things. Species Trumpus-Corruptus doesn't know numbers. Math Professor Emeritus Rick Perry was able to teach Trump a universal number 'Oops'. Any number larger than 2 is Oops. Hence World War Six— Tomi T Ahonen (@tomiahonen) January 29, 2020
