While the Department of Defense—the people who run wars—are not often associated with subtlety, the social media person behind the military is GREAT at subtle shade.

On Monday morning, the first official workday of the Trump administration, the DoD tweeted out an article that sure looks like a slick sniper hit at one of President Trump's many bad attributes.

Trump's tweeting erratic Twitter habits, which is invented syntax and penchant for attacking private citizens, is a hit among his supports and armchair psychiatrist.

Scrolling through @realDonaldTrump's feed feels as if it provides real-time insights into the fragile psyche of a deranged narcissist, and that might be just be what it is.Did the Department of Defense just shade Donald Trump on Twitter?

The tweet, however, links to an article about suicide prevention. Veterans' mental health is a huge, important issue that the DoD might be referring to, but with Trumpmania on everyone's minds, it's easy (and more fun!) to see it as shade.
