There is always someone out there that will complain about something. You know, someone that says that their coffee is too hot.
When what happened at the Capitol happened this week, people were absolutely waiting for President Trump to say something, and no matter what he said, the mainstream media was going to get pissy about it because well, that’s what they do.
If Donald Trump said he liked apples, they would say he hated pears. If he cured cancer tomorrow, they would complain that he’s putting oncologists out of work. At the end of the day, they are going to find something to complain about.
He went online and did everything he could to tell the people at the Capitol to go home, that what they were doing was wrong. That being said, they didn’t think what he did was enough…
In an unprecedented move, social media giant Facebook has banned President Donald Trump from its platform “indefinitely,” alleging that he is seeking to “undermine” the transition of power to Joe Biden.
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the news on his Facebook profile this afternoon: “The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.”
The Big Tech company was referring to hundreds of protestors entering the Capitol building yesterday, while the official counting of the electoral college vote was ongoing. Blame has been leveled at Trump for promoting the protests, though evidence is now emerging suggesting that antifa activists were actually involved in inciting the crowds.
Zuckerberg continued: “His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world. We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect — and likely their intent — would be to provoke further violence.”
Zuckerberg wrote that while Facebook “allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules … the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.”
