(And yes, I know Obama sent out a few tweets while in office, but there is really no comparison.)
No one ever went wrong underestimating the dignity of Donald Trump.

Yes, and I know this is a thread to complain about the tweets, but I'm just saying: if the worst he's done on the taliban thing is tweet something idiotic, then this is about as good as it gets. I'll take that over him tweeting something actually dangerous and/or offensive, or doing or saying anything.

b) Then it made sense to cancel those talks, because the deal being proposed had virtually no concessions from the Taliban, and they were using the dreadful tactic of ramping up attacks to try to strengthen their negotiating hand further.

It's not the end though, so Trump still has a chance to do something stupid.
That assumes that the meeting plan actually existed in the first place and isn't being invented (and confirmed by sycophantic/armtwisted minions) after the fact.
The Camp David (instead of Trump property) venue points toward the latter -- since when does the Crook-in-Chief pass up an opportunity for graft?

But in fact The Economist, and other news agencies, were already reporting about peace talks with the taliban being set up before Trump's tweets on the matter. And they are now reporting about what is currently being done to try to reboot the process.
So he's not making the whole thing up. Though yes, it's always possible that he heard grown-ups talking about something and decided to season the facts with his own brand of bullshit and/or didn't understand.

He probably saw a Taliban peace deal as another shot at a Nobel Peace Prize. I just wonder how he was convinced to cancel.

The article really doesn't have much detail, but yeah:

Trump reportedly wanted to show off his negotiation skills by inviting the Taliban to Camp David

Quote:
* A proposed meeting of President Donald Trump, the Taliban, and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at Camp David was axed in part over disagreements over the political showmanship, a new report says.

* According to The New York Times, the idea of a meeting on US soil was subject to an argument between Trump and his National Security Council as to whether it should come before or after any concrete progress was made toward peace.

* Trump wanted to go sooner, The Times reported, so the optics of making a deal could be part of the negotiation.

...

Trump, who dispensed with decades of political norms when he abruptly met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Demilitarized Zone on the Korean Peninsula, reportedly wanted to be perceived as the chief negotiator of peace with the extremist group.
Yes, because ending the US's longest war should depend on how it affects Trump's ego.

Listen to yourselves, people! This is the level of normalcy that this craziness has sunk to! We're (I'll include myself) speculating that the so-called president MADE UP this whole Taliban meeting thing! Maybe yes, maybe no, but we all know he is CAPABLE of making up such a thing because most every word out of his mouth (or thumbs) is a LIE.

Anyway, I say he made it up, because otherwise it would have been set to be held at one of his properties.

As I recall, one of Trump's campaign talking points was the world was laughing at the US under Obama. I seem to remember the UN General Assembly literally laughing at Trump when he claimed his admin has accomplished more than any other president's in history in a speech there.

You must be pretty lame to get dissed by the Taliban:

TALIBAN MOCK TRUMP'S 'ASTONISHING' AFGHANISTAN U-TURN, SUGGEST DECISION 'CERTAINLY DAMAGED HIS CREDIBILITY'

Quote:
The Taliban have hit back at President Donald Trump's dramatic cancellation of an imminent Afghanistan peace agreement, suggesting his erratic diplomacy is damaging his credibility.

According to BBC correspondent Lyse Doucet, a Taliban spokesperson said Sunday that the president's weekend tweets had come as a surprise to the group. Trump announced on Twitter on Saturday that he was shelving the peace deal following the killing of a U.S. soldier in Kabul last week.

...

Doucet cited Taliban spokesperson Suhail Shaheen, who reportedly said on Sunday that an agreement was reached between U.S. and Taliban negotiators in Qatar several days ago. He described Trump's Twitter tirade as "astonishing" and suggested the messages had "certainly damaged his credibility."
Wow. The Taliban is shading Trump. Still, why would anyone but a MAGAss think Trump has any credibility?

Not really Twitter related, at least not yet; maybe after Trump hears about it tho: Sweden rejects TRUMP vanity license plate request:

Swedish authorities say that a man has been denied a vanity plate with the letters TRUMP because it violated motor vehicle department rules, calling the letter combination “offensive.”

It's a sad day in Mudville when the Taliban is a more credible source than the White House.

I'm just happy he's trying to pump up his reputation by becoming a Nobel prize winner. God help us all if he decides to do it by waging a war.

It's just embarrassing when Trump tries to outdo Obama. It would get dangerous if he tried to outdo Bush.

Facebook meme notes: there is at least one obvious commonality in the four people (John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Van Jones and Lester Holt) that Trump unloaded on that evening beside their celebrity status and general dislike of him.

That none of them are what Americans call "white", was my guess and a bit of research confirms it. But given the extremely narrow definition Americans use and the current composition of the US, that's getting to the point where that is not so much a matter of "these guys are all minorities" as of "these guys are all part of the numeric majority".

I thought the Taliban eschewed technology to keep their secret bases from being found, or is that another terrorist group?

It's kind of odd that "terrorist" doesn't carry the same weight it did under the last two presidents. It used to be the number 1 danger to the US, but now it's been trumped.
