This afternoon, during a press conference with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, Trump went off on a bizarre tirade about how he’s “discriminated” against on social media as a conservative.
A reporter from the Daily Caller asked POTUS if he would support a change to the existing libel laws to hold social media platforms accountable for content posted that attacks public figures — and Trump jumped all over the question as an opportunity to whine and moan about how mistreated he is.
Donald kicked off his answer by stating, “I have many, many millions of followers on Twitter and it’s different than it used to be. Things are happening, names are taken off, people aren’t getting through. You’ve heard the same complaints and it seems to be if they’re conservative, if they’re Republicans, if they’re in a certain group, there’s discrimination and big discrimination.”
He then continued to complain “I get to see first hand what’s going on and it’s not good. We use the word ‘collusion’ very loosely all the time and I will tell you, there is collusion with respect to that because something has to be going on.” He’s basically accusing every social media executive that ever lived and breathed of seeking vengeance for him personally.
He pathetically whined that, “When you get the back scene, back office statements made by executives of the various companies and you see the level of, in many cases hatred, they have for a certain group of people that happen to be in power, that happen to have won the election, you say that’s really unfair. Something’s happening with those groups of folks that are running Facebook and Google and Twitter, and I do think we have to get to the bottom of it.”
So, basically, he wants to completely strip you and everyone else of their first amendment rights.
“It’s very, very fair to say that we have to do something about it,” Trump finished. “The incredible thing is that we can win an election and we have such a stacked deck and that includes networks, frankly. You look at the networks. You look at the news and you look at the newscast. I call it fake news.”
Someone remind this dickbag of the definition of discrimination and make sure he understands — if his name is brought up in connection to discrimination, he’s on the giving end. Not the receiving.
