Breaking — There are bedbugs in the NYT newsroom.— Stuart A. Thompson (@stuartathompson) August 26, 2019
This afternoon, I tweeted a brief joke about a well-known NYT op-Ed columnist.— davekarpf (@davekarpf) August 27, 2019
It got 9 likes and 0 retweets. I did not @ him. He does not follow me.
He just emailed me, cc’ing my university provost. He is deeply offended that I called him a metaphorical bedbug.

“Trump wanted to nuke hurricanes” and “Trump wanted to buy Greenland” are perfect end-of-August headlines because you check in during vacation, see the headline, work backwards to try to figure out what the hell is going on and realize, yep, it’s exactly what you thought it was.— Sal Gentile (@salgentile) August 26, 2019
The Greenland story will go away when it's not August anymore, right?— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) August 26, 2019

Air Force: I'm sorry, what?
*repeats what Axios reported*
Air Force: Oh my god, I'm putting you on speaker
