Heart of the matter:
Recently, twitter saw another tweet war take place between Kristy Swanson, who is perhaps known mostly due to her role in 1992’s “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” and Canadian-American actor, Patrick Gallagher, best known for his role as Coach Ken Tanaka in “Glee.”
The incident took place after Gallagher retweeted a video in which two women are enthusiastically praising USA President Donald J. Trump. He tweeted that the video is the reason “why people laugh at America,”

This tweet did not sit right with Swanson who, in a tweet, reminded Patrick that is a Canadian making a living as an “actor” in The United States Of America.
“If you’re so embarrassed by our Country that is putting food on your table, I’d be more than happy to purchase your 1 Way ticket back to America’s Hat,” she said.
You are a
Canadian making a living as an “actor” in The United States Of America.
If you’re so embarrassed by our Country that is putting food on your
table, I’d be more than happy to purchase your 1 Way ticket back to
America’s Hat 🇨🇦 https://t.co/EmYWtQrW77

Gallagher replied by tweeting about his prior working experience with Swanson, “You were a diva and rude when I worked with you… It looks like you haven’t changed gotten any more class,”
Gallagher also called Swanson because she “Didn’t even bother to do the research,” as Gallagher holds American citizenship. He also called her a “typical Trumpster class and thin skin,”
Patrick Gallagher later blocked Swanson.
Swanson also defended her calling Canada as America’s Hat.
Hello Mark 🤗,
both our Countries are in North America, my saying America’s Hat was
just a cheeky way of trying to keep the tweet lighthearted. I ran it by
my Proud Canadian husband first & he felt it added some light
humor to the situation, so he approved it

But this is not the only tweeter clash regarding Trump. Earlier this month, the President himself came under fire after he posted a bunch of racist tweets, criticizing progressive Democratic congresswomen. Many members of the Democratic party rallied in support of the congresswomen.
So interesting to
see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from
countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the
worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a
functioning government at all), now loudly……

….it is done.
These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure
that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel

British Prime Minister, Theresa May said that President Trump’s remarks were “completely unacceptable.”
