Trump Celebrates The Layoffs Of 68 Employees In Disturbing Late-Night Tweets




In a series of deranged late-night tweets, President Trump celebrated the major layoffs at The Atlantic that were announced last week.

“Great News: The boring but very nasty magazine, The Atlantic, is rapidly failing, going down the tubes, and has just been forced to announce it is laying off at least 20% of its staff in order to limp into the future. This is a tough time to be in the Fake New Business!” Trump tweeted.



The president’s attack on The Atlantic comes after the news site published an article titled “The Malignant Cruelty of Donald Trump” on Tuesday afternoon.

The piece by contributing writer Peter Wehner examined the conspiracy theories Trump has peddled over the years, including the baseless speculation that MSNBC host Joe Scarborough murdered a former employee.

Wehner responded to Trump’s tweet, writing: “Perhaps you’ve read my most recent piece in @TheAtlantic? If not, please do. It was just posted today and it’s all about you, @realDonaldTrump, which I assume is all you need to know.”




Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic magazine, also responded to Trump’s tweet, saying that the company’s audience “has never been bigger.”

Last week, The Atlantic announced that 68 employees would be laid off, representing 17% of the total staff.

Trump also attacked The New York Times, saying its Pulitzer Prize for the international report of the Russian collusion investigation should be revoked.
