I think Trump has some wiggle room since what he expresses can only loosely be considered actual speech.

So if she gets hurt by one of these nuts, who will he point the finger at? Will he deflect and talk about something completely different line it didn't happen or will he try to gaslight everyone? Or both, within about 3 minutes of each other?

Why not both?

I cannot imagine the fury if his account was suspended.  I'm sure it would be a deeply illegal action and possibly even treason.  Fortunately, we wouldn't have to read his tweets about it, so LOL.

They never will.  His comments are controversial.  Controversy draws attraction, and that attraction draws users.  Users draw advertisers and advertisers draw $$$.

Everyone has their price.

Twitter ban Trump?  Not in his lifetime!  Or at least his Presidency.

InB4 someone claims banning hate speech would result in a ban on supporting homosexuality or protecting abortion rights.

You already know the answer.

"Mentally ill white male who just couldn't get any help and was greatly disturbed but we have no money for healthcare and give fewer farks about 'mental healthcare' which is made up because psychologists are a made up science that we already don't believe in anyway."

They've only kept it up this long because he's President and he keeps incriminating himself. Once he starts inciting violence, he really needs to go.

For one thing, that Trump even exists is a hateful affront to the human race, darwin, and probably Jesus.

For another thing, this is the most disingenuous thing I've seen typed on fark today. Stochastic terrorism is a thing. A thing that fascists and strongmen and dictators use. But right wingers worship dictators and authoritarian juntas so it's no surprise.

Since Trump uses Twitter to spout his idiot policy ideas and issue his decrees, is Twitter de facto a government communication agency / platform?
