The Triumph of Donald Trump

Stung By Twitter, Trump Signs Executive Order To Weaken Social Media Companies

".........The president said the tech companies have "unchecked power to censor, restrict, edit, shape, hide, alter" a large sphere of human interaction. "They have points of view," he said.

The Trump administration hopes the order will eventually set the stage for new regulations on tech platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

But legal experts said they were doubtful the move would have any practical effect on the tech giants. Legal observers described the action as "political theater," arguing that the order does not change existing federal law and will have no bearing on federal courts........

Amazing.
**** goes to the Rose Garden. He talks about Hong Kong.
 
Not a word about George Floyd’s murder.
Nor about the violence and riots in Minneapolis.
 
Nor about the 101,000 Covid deaths in just 3 months.
 
Do we even HAVE a president?
 
What does he imagine his job covers?
 
Golf?

The official White House account has reposted the text of President Trump’s tweet

which was flagged by Twitter as glorifying violence.

MAIL-IN VOTING WILL LEAD TO MASSIVE FRAUD AND ABUSE.
 
IT WILL ALSO LEAD TO THE END OF OUR GREAT REPUBLICAN PARTY.
 
WE CAN NEVER LET THIS TRAGEDY BEFALL OUR NATION. BIG MAIL-IN VICTORY IN TEXAS COURT TODAY. CONGRATS!!!

Kind of giving the game away when you just put right out there that the reason to oppose people voting by mail

is that it hurts your political party

 

Voter fraud was a flimsy and sheer gown to begin with

but Trump has just flung it off completely to show us his whole orange glory

Twitter and Trump:

a feud years in the making finally erupts

"Twitter’s decision this week to stand up to President Donald Trump by attaching warnings to some of his many tweets has been years in the making, a culmination of American divisions playing out and being amplified across social media. It is fueled by some of the very elements that make modern American discourse so polarized, so fast-moving and — at the oddest of historical moments — so fragmented.

Twitter's assumption of a stronger referee role in its approach to Trump's tweets reflects a “pretty radical change,” said Josh Pasek, an associate professor at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research. “We really haven’t been at a place where social media companies were willing to take on this role.”

But it also heightens the dangers of polarization.............

Far-Right Extremists Are Hoping to Turn the George Floyd Protests Into a New Civil War

 

Armed extremists are showing up to protests and urging a “boogaloo” — code for civil war — online.

...........The “boogaloo” is code for impending civil war or violent confrontation with law enforcement, and that’s what they’re hoping to get out of the protests. Their main reason for being there is their antipathy toward law enforcement, and so they’re trying to position themselves as allies of Black Lives Matter protesters. They’ve made police brutality one of their central issues, which was explored at length in a Bellingcat article this week.

Their approach to police brutality links the victims of the deadly standoff with federal agents at Ruby Ridge in 1992, to the victims of modern police brutality, including Floyd. But unlike the vast majority of protesters, they refuse to acknowledge the fact that police brutality is an issue that disproportionately impacts people of color. .............

In addition to their physical presence at the protests, the #boogaloo hashtag on social media has been flooded with memes in the last couple days egging on violence, and talking about how they hope this is the beginning of a civil war. ........

perhaps the most troubling of all are the hardcore “accelerationists” who are encouraging their neo-Nazi followers to go to the protests and carry out acts of violence against black people — all with the goal of “exacerbating the ethnic tensions” and sparking a “race war.” .........

This is the visual that will define the entire failed Trumpian experiment.
 
When his country needed a leader, Donald Trump turned off the lights and hid under the bed.
======================================
 
Lights that usually illuminate exterior of the WH have been turned off........

Biden went out to a protest site to listen to folks today.
 
The President hid in the White House bunker because there were protesters across the street.

After finding out Trump was hiding in his bunker, I think it’s best if we don’t have a coward addressing the nation. Biden, who visited a protest site, should do it.

Where was Trump when the pandemic began? Where was he as the nation erupted in rioting and looting? In both cases, doing nothing

 trump's had a good time for the last three and a half years--

 going to rallies and tweeting hateful insults to political adversaries, non-white Americans, Progressive women, and anyone else in America who has seen fit to criticize his corrupt, pro-russian, racist Administration.

 As trump hurled these insults at his rallies with his compliant supporters cheering him on, he  hardly realized that they were a minority of voters in his election.

The popular vote in the 2016 presidential election went to Hillary Clinton.

 trump doesn't like the majority of Americans, because they didn't vote for him anyway.

 Unfortunately, he doesn't realize that he is now the president of all Americans and he has to respond to all Americans and have their best interest at heart.

 Well, this weekend the representatives of that popular vote came to call on him at their White House.

This weekend, maybe trump realized for the first time that this country belongs to the American people, that the White House belongs to the American people....

 And, most of all--

 The White House is too big and too white to hide even if you turn off all the lights and run into a bunker.

 trump has a portrait of President Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office.

 When the people came to the White House to greet Old Hickory, He didn't turn off the lights and hide in the basement--

he just let them all in.

 And when his country called for military service, Old Hickory didn't have bone spurs.

 Oh, you can say a lot of things critical about the president on the $20 bill, but one thing you have to admit--

 Old Hickory was no

"Bone Spur Coward"!

The election was clearly on President Trump's mind on Sunday.
 
In response to questions about what he was doing to address the tumult, Trump forwarded a reply through an aid
 
that focused on the campaign.
 
“I’m going to win the election easily,” he said.

Gov. Whitmer: "Instead of offering support or leadership to bring down the temperature at protests ...
 
The president repeatedly and viciously attacked governors who are doing everything they can to keep the peace
 
while fighting a once-in-a-generation global pandemic."
