Kentucky Pastor Becomes Accidental Focus Of Trump's Wrath After Trump Mistakenly Tags Him In A Tweet


In case it isn't obvious by now, President Donald Trump rarely thinks before he tweets.

One Twitter user learned that the hard way after the President accidentally tagged him in an angry tweet for all of Trump's nearly 64 million followers to see.

Jonathan Karl (@JonKarl) is an ABC News reporter who questioned an assertion by Trump that Hurricane Dorian would most likely hit as far west as Alabama. No models indicated this and no one knew where Trump got the idea.

Trump sounded off on Twitter after Karl pointed this out, but in his initial tweet, he tagged Jonathan Carl (@JonathanCarl), a Kentucky pastor of South Fork Baptist Church.

Trump deleted the tweet before reposting with the correct account, but the damage was done.


Carl got the surprise of his life, before praying for protection for those *actually* in Dorian's path.

Carl told the Courier Journal of the incident:

"I'm not on Twitter too often, so somebody on Facebook gave me a heads up. I just had a laugh. … I'm a victim of a drive-by tweet."

Other Twitter users felt sorry for the sudden onslaught and, in a rare moment for the internet, everyone responded with gracious replies.

Carl didn't assert a political opinion regarding the matter, but he did defend the President and his critics, against banal rhetoric.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
