The United States dropped a massive GBU-43 bomb, the largest non-nuclear bomb it has ever used in combat, in eastern Afghanistan on Thursday. But the arbitrariness of the bombing combined with Trump’s recent “chocolate cake” remark had Twitter in splits. Tweeple had a number of questions to ask the US President, including what was he eating while he decided to bomb Afghanistan.
Recently, in an interview to Fox News Business, Trump had said he told the Chinese President about his decision to bomb Syria while gorging on “the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever seen”. Trump also mistakenly called Syria Iraq which led to several tongue-in-cheek remarks on social media mocking the POTUS.
On Thursday, when the news of the US bombing ISIS became public, Twitter had a lot to say to Mr President.

Turns out the only purpose for dropping the MOAB, other than to distract, was to leave a hole for foundation of new Trump Hotel, Afghanistan— Michael G. (@MichaelGarofola) April 13, 2017
@TVsAndyDaly I hope that's what the MOAB thing is about... "Well, I just wanted to try out that missile before I had to go."— Brandon Bird (@Brandon_Bird) April 13, 2017

The bomb Trump just dropped on Afghanistan cost $314 million.— Jack Slater (@Jack_Slater) April 13, 2017
Enough money to fix the water crisis in Flint almost three times over. #MOAB
A subtle reminder that it's possible to oppose ISIS and still be concerned about the brutality of dropping a 21,600-pound bomb. #MOAB— Nick Jack Pappas (@Pappiness) April 13, 2017
I wanna know how many died from that MOAB though...— ™Marcus (@TheMisterMarcus) April 13, 2017
Can We Leave Gender Out of This One?
MOAB is sexist trash. Mothers are nurturing, not violent. This is just more heteronormative cis gender white privilege patriarchy.— Mark Dice (@MarkDice) April 13, 2017
USA dropped "mother of all bombs" today....but non-nuclear....so more like a step-mom....#MOAB— Michael Lopez (@Deportes_Lopez) April 13, 2017
Why did they have to gender MOAB? Maybe it's trans or gender non conforming.— Mark Dice (@MarkDice) April 13, 2017
