A social media employee at the US Department of Defense may have let slip their personal political views on the official DoD Twitter account, retweeting a call for President Donald Trump to resign. Al Franken: "resign from congress. Donald Trump: "resign from the presidency", Proud Resister wrote in the retweeted post.

"The solution is simple", the tweet read, adding: "Roy Moore: Step down from the race". Right after his inauguration, the National Park Service account retweeted photos showing that Trump's inauguration crowd was far thinner than Barack Obama's - a sore subject for the new president, who has insisted otherwise. Franken was a comedian at the time, and traveled with Tweeden and other celebrities to the Middle East as part of a USO holiday tour to thank USA troops for their service.

The Pentagon's official Twitter account retweeted and then quickly deleted a post calling on President Trump to resign from office.


The operator of the Pentagon account discovered the error and deleted it, she said.

Another claims that while "ObamaCare" and "NFL players kneeling" offend Republicans, "pedophiles" and "white hoods" do not.
