Well, Covid-19 didn't hurt his fee fee's
 
2020-05-29 2:46:36 PM  
No, he's been trying to shift the focus away from hisxincompetence for months now. He just finally found things to rile up the base.
 
2020-05-29 2:55:42 PM  
Clearly, we can see which is more important to him.

Minneapolis is a gift for Trump: it's a distraction from his total screwup over COVID and a free chance to play to his most racist followers. Win-win.

Twitter gives Donny his bully pulpit. He only has a megaphone as long as he has an account. BAN TRUMP.

/ or continue to tag his tweets as misleading

Why Twitter will never win a war on truth with Donald Trump

No, Donald Trump will never win a war on truth against Twitter.  Let him move over to Facebook if he so desires. Mark would love to have him.

Trump is a little wussy crybaby, and conservatives still do not understand how the 1st Amendment works.

Months?

Covid-19 hurts those that need to be hurt.  Anyone but himself.  Twitter directly 'hurt' him.

Hey man, priorities, priorities...

Oh, look! Another awesome take from Chris Cillizza.

Twitter isn't going to remove Trump's account.

Fark that. Send him off to Gab where he belongs.

Let's be honest, the list of things conservatives don't understand work includes everything from "human reproduction" - hello Mr. Legitimate Rape, I hope you didn't think you'd been forgotten about! - to their beloved Second Amendment and that little line about "[a] well regulated Millitia" - which, ironically, far better describes the Black Panthers than it does the Sturmtrumpers

Ban him and get it over with. We won't have to see his idiotic posts every day and as a bonus he might stroke out and die.
 
2020-05-29 4:58:07 PM  
COVID can kill liberals so its "whatever" in his book. Twitter made him feel like a choad, so it has to be reined in.

I don't think anyone ever thought Mike Tyson was in any way intelligent. I still like his cartoon though.

All this prick cares about is optics. How does he look/sound, how do people think he looks/sounds, what do the polls say about how he looks/sounds...that's it. In his mind, the 105,000 deaths and counting were people that weren't going to vote for him, so he doesn't need to care that they're dead. If the vast majority of deaths were in die-hard Republican areas or were confirmed Trump supporters....then he'd care. Oh, he'd care bigly. He'd show up at as many funerals as he could with that ugly farking hat and his gunt halfway down to his knees, decrying the loss of another good patriot in the MAGA cause.

Yep.  He's a combative senior with NPD, so any slightest challenge on anything was going to provoke a tantrum.

I wish we could all just point and laugh, but our authoritarians were waiting for their demagogue, and will go along with anything he says or does, even with so much American blood on his hands.

105K is the tip of the iceberg. We're not finished yet. There are millions of people that have gone along with the politicizing of this pandemic. New waves are popping up all over.

As if those pieces of sh*t were ever going to be swayed to vote for Biden ever.

Seriously Twitter, grow some balls, actually be relevant and remove his account. It would be good for everyone.

He's found the new thing to grip the public's attention, and it seems to have worked pretty well.

Donnie is the prettiest princess on Twitter. They have to deal with the monster they helped create.

/Trumps decline into senility was probably accelerated by the original 140 char limit
//he is a soundbite junkie

We've noticed all along that he doesn't give a fark about anyone but himself.

Covid isn't easy to forget. And it isn't going anywhere either.

And many people can follow more than one issue at a time, even if the news starts giving new issues more airtime.

Zizzowop: Seriously Twitter, grow some balls, actually be relevant and remove his account. It would be good for everyone.


They're not going to do that now they've figured a second way; they now know how to provoke the US president into lashing back reflexively with no risk of him leaving their service because he's incapable of the self discipline to just walk away. This feud has the potential to drive their engagement metrics through the roof.

And hours later, Twitter gave another Trump tweet a smackdown.

I get the feeling that Jack Dorsey, unlike Mark Zuckerberg who is a complete sociopath, has a glimmer of a conscience. It may be buried deep under millions of dollars worth of Trump-generated revenue, but it's there. He knows Trump is only going to become more erratic as his poll numbers sink and it becomes more likely he will be beaten in November by Biden. Trump will become more incendiary, and more blood will be spilled by his cult followers. And Jack does not want any more of that blood on his hands.

I suspect this could the beginning of Jack preparing for a post-Trump Twitter.

We're not finished _getting_started_.

And no one seems to give a shiat.  Well, some of us do, and some are working themselves to death (literally) in the fight.  But the fact that there's any oxygen at all in the denialism and minimization arguments is utterly reprehensible.

Good luck, Farkers.  Wash your damn hands, stay home when you can, wear a mask, take care of yourselves and those you can help.  We're in for a long, awful ride.

And it ALL could have been avoided.
