there are two wolves inside the bitcoin community: the wolf that thinks that any PR is good PR, and the wolf that knows that the president of the united states saying "bitcoin should be illegal" is not actually good news for bitcoin

@vogon I'm no expert on bitcoin, but you're talking about the same President who asked if Canadians burned down White House, speaks of the Prince of Whales, thinks the Press is the enemy of the people and invented the word "confeve". Nobody needs to take his opinions seriously.

@4deuces @vogon covfefe*, Canadian troops were involved in the war of 1812 when the White House was burned, and Charles is actually the Prince of Wales

But Trump's still a dumbass piece of shit.

@marie_joseph
1) British troops burned down the White House.
2) He said "Prince of Whales".

@4deuces Canadians were British at the time and people from Canada served in the British military. The same was true of America during the Revolution.

I didn't realize the latter bit though because I mostly ignore him

@marie_joseph

We specify British Army because a mob of pre-Canadian militiamen would have never made it to Washington by themselves.
