Turks are smashing their
iPhones to protest Trump

CBS News, by Tucker Reals

Original Article

Posted By:snapper451, 8/16/2018 8:47:50 PM

Turks are taking sledgehammers, handguns and fire to iPhones in a symbolic backing of their government as it clashes with the Trump administration over a jailed American pastor. Videos showing Turkish citizens stomping on or otherwise destroying iPhones have proliferated online in recent days, following President Recep Tayyip Erdogan´s call for Turks to boycott U.S. products -- specifically the smartphones made by California tech giant Apple. Erdogan issued the call and announced a massive hike in tariffs on U.S. goods this week after the U.S. raised tariffs on Turkish imports and aimed new sanctions at Turkish officials in the row over

Comments:
Turks may have a worse case of TDS than the progressives here. I, for one, can´t wait for the millenials and other snowflakes to start destroying their iPhones to protest Trump. Let´s all buy Apple stock since we know they will not be able to live an hour without a new one.

They probably got worried that Siri was snooping on them, and google was tracking their every move. I´m about ready to smash mine too.

I bet the Turks are not smashing "their" iphones, maybe someone else´s. The Turks put on a show for CBS. I wonder if they threw their arms in the air. That is always a good photo op.

What they are trying to do is create enough outrage at this pastor to ensure that he will not be released. It’s not about the phones. It’s about ginning up hate against this American pastor. Anger is the emotion that is easily manipulated by the Turkish government for whatever narrative they wish to create and right now, they want their people outraged at the American government for demanding the release of this pastor. Hopefully, the President can put enough pressure on Erdogan to make him see that the release of this American in is Turkey’s best interest. Thankfully, this President has taken an interest in Americans held by hostile governments and is making the point that holding Americans as hostages will not go well for them.

They got the idea from the GOP which shoots itself in the foot, gets a wire bottle brush, rolls it in margarita salt then reams out the foot hole, trying to convince conservatives they´re really smart. BUT, the GOP´s been doing it since 1995. The Turks have a long way to go to catch up.

Kind of like shooting themselves in the foot, as iPhones are expensive. Once the situation changes after the Trukish Government decides to release the American Pastor, and if those Turks want to get back in the modern era, they will most likely have to purchase expensive new iPhones.

Rubio Alleges, Without Proof, That Democrats

Look, the Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office sucks. It screwed up in 2000, got caught breaking the law by deleting ballots in 2016, and is in full-scale chaos right now. Oft-embattled Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes says she has no idea how many provisional and absentee ballots are left to be counted in her office. But as it stands, there is zero evidence that the Democratic Party is, in any way, trying to "steal" this election from Republicans. That sort of rhetoric erodes the public´s (admittedly low) trust in the validity of American elections.

President Trump on Thursday abruptly denied military aircraft to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a foreign trip just minutes before the congressional delegation was set to depart, in a stunning response to her call to delay the State of the Union address amid the government shutdown. In a curt letter, Trump said her trip has been “postponed.” “Due to the Shutdown, I am sorry to inform you that your trip to Brussels, Egypt, and Afghanistan has been postponed. We will reschedule this seven-day excursion when the Shutdown is over. In light of the 800,000 great American workers not receiving pay,

Nancy Pelosi doubled down on those claims when confronted by reporters. “We had the prerogative to travel commercially, and we made plans to do that, until the administration then leaked that we were traveling commercially,” Pelosi told a gaggle of reporters.

Instead, she stood firm in her resolve to delay the January 29 event until the government completely re-opens.

Gillette is doubling down on a controversial new campaign that appears aimed at taking on so-called toxic masculinity — but has created a social media firestorm. The two-minute video from Boston-based razor brand Gillette urges men to act against sexual harassment, misogyny and bullying, asking: “Is this the best a man can get?” While fans are applauding the move, critics say it assumes men need to be steered away from negative tendencies.

An ESPN host suggested Wednesday it was racist for President Donald Trump to serve fast food to the Clemson football team at the White House, saying such food being given to players of a "predominately black sport" gave her pause. (Snip)While the players appeared to enjoy the food, some political and sports observers took Trump to task for what they considered a low-class gesture. On the daily ESPN debate show "First Take," panelists Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman discussed the matter, with Smith saying it was a "classless" and "disgraceful" move by Trump.

Now, former associate Attorney General Bruce Ohr has confirmed that´s true. If so, these are criminal acts. The only question is, what do we do now? Both the Justice Department and FBI have maintained they didn´t really know that Trump Dossier compiler Christopher Steele had any bias at all against Trump.
