Isn’t it interesting that two of the giants of social media, Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, have to police the Child in Chief in the Oval Office, because he can’t be trusted to police himself? And apparently neither can his aides. Washington Post:
Facebook on Wednesday said it removed President Trump’s post of a video clip from a Fox News interview in which he said that children are “almost immune” from covid-19, marking the company’s increasingly tough stance on political speech amid heightened pressure.
I guess it’s a good thing that there are some adults, somewhere, who are looking out for America’s interest during the pandemic, because it is certain that the sitting president* is not.
It will be interesting to see if Trump appeals the Twitter ban, or if he removes the offending tweet, which is hidden at this point. I am assuming that Trump will comply with Twitter’s ban, because that’s his drug of choice, the tweet box. I can’t see him giving it up that easily.
I’ll bet that there is wailing and gnashing of teeth at the White House right now. Who knows, maybe executive orders are being drafted.
