Donald Trump and his best gay friend.

The revolving door at Trump Tower is still open, as President-elect Donald Trump hosted ALL HIS BESTEST FRIENDS who happen to be technology CEOs and bigwigs for a special meeting with himself, his children (but of course! They are the president too after all!) and Mike Pence, Steve Bannon and the other goons. Everybody was there! BoingBoing has the list, which included, among others, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Tesla dude Elon Musk, Apple man Tim Cook, and sitting right next to him, Trump's best gay friend/Gawker annihilater/PayPal queen Peter Thiel, who organized the meeting. You know Cook is a gay too, which means, awwww, he seated the homosexuals together!

Guess who was NOT there? That would be Jack Dorsey, co-founder and CEO of Trump's favoritest thing in the world, Twitter. For the reason why, Politico points us to a Medium post written by Gary Coby, director of digital advertising and fundraising for the Trump campaign, that describes how Twitter refused to let the Trump campaign make a super cool #CrookedHillary emoji, to use on Twitter. Unfair!

Politico summarizes it helpfully, because the Medium post is a total whine-fest:

Dorsey personally intervened to block the Trump operation from deploying — as part of a $5 million deal between the social media company and the campaign — an emoji showing, in various renderings, small bags of money being given away or stolen. That emoji would have been offered to users as a replacement for the hashtag #CrookedHillary, a preferred Trump insult for his Democratic opponent. [...]

[RNC spokesgoon Sean] Spicer told the Washington Examiner in October, regarding the emoji dustup, that "while Twitter claims to be a venue that promotes the free exchange of ideas, it's clear that it's leadership's left wing ideology literally trumps that."

Um, OK. You can go read the whole Medium thing if you'd like, but the thrust is that Twitter was pickin' on poor lil' Trump, but it was nice to #CrookedHillary, yadda yadda.

On Twitter, CNN reporter Dylan Byers says Trump's beef with his lifeblood, Twitter, is more complicated than a mere #EmojiFight, but he doesn't elaborate. Maybe Trump is mad that Twitter said it won't help him build a registry of Muslims. Maybe he's mad how Twitter keeps banning all those fun white supremacists he likes to retweet.

Hey Twitter, you pissed about not being invited? We have a idea for you! BAN DONALD TRUMP LIKE A COMMON WHITE SUPREMACIST MILO GAY! Hahaha, that would be amazing.

Here are a couple of fun things that happened in the big sexxxy tech meeting. First of all, Trump hand-hugs his gay boyfriend Peter Thiel all weird, while Thiel has this "awwww, daddy" look on his face:

How sweet!

And here is a video of Trump telling all the gathered critters that he just loves them, they're the best, he's going to make it so much easier for them to trade, you're not gonna believe it, it's gonna be terrific:

And finally, a tweet from HuffPost reporter Christina Wilkie, showing all the Trump kids sitting together behaving like good children, at the head of the table at daddy's big president meeting:

Awwwww, it's so heartwarming seeing all these rich people get together to help normalize Donald Trump, the thin-skinned, autocratic, kleptocratic once-and-future tyrant of America! ALL THE FEELS!

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
