(THREAD) The recent response of the U.S. military to a clear directive from its Commander-in-Chief was extraordinary. We need to discuss it.

(1) The White House has stated publicly, unambiguously, and repeatedly that President Trump's tweets are official White House declarations.

(2) The U.S. military is as or more aware of this White House policy as anyone else is, as it's obligated to follow presidential directives.

Twitter: one user saying something is a bad sign—which it is—gets read as a claim we are "on the brink" of something. Which was never said.

Yikes! Twitter really needs to add an "edit" function. Thanks for the correction.

No, an edit function is the *last* thing Twitter needs right now.

*sigh* legally the President's tweets are the record - affirmed by WH rep Spicer. When POTUS tweets consider them Prez edicts.

Hopefully the military would have a similar response to "attack North Korea" or "nuke anyone."
