Donald Trump’s Twitter Account Is in Jeopardy

@realDonaldTrump loses its special protections after Jan. 20

After Joe Biden is sworn in as president on Jan. 20, 2021, Donald Trump’s 11-year, anti-establishment, conspiracy-fueled salvos on Twitter could come to a screeching halt for repeatedly violating the platform’s content rules.

You don’t say?

Twitter, which has committed to more stringent rules against peddling misinformation this year, like labeling rule-breaking tweets, has repeatedly slapped Trump on the wrist for his behavior. But unlike normal platform abusers, the company has refused to banish Trump outright because, well, he’s the president. Twitter’s “World Leaders” policy was codified last year and treats some rule-breaking tweets as newsworthy. But that designation will no longer protect Trump once he’s a former president.

And now we make a right-turn at Albuquerque (The Bulwark):

“Everyone laughs at how stupid the Trump lawsuits are. Can you believe these morons? They lose everywhere! Even Republican judges keep slapping them down! How embarrassing for Trump!”

“But that’s the wrong way to think about Trump’s actions since November 3. Because his goal hasn’t been to keep the office of the president. It’s been to keep the Republican party.”

Uh-oh…

“Now, owning a major political party isn’t as useful as being president. But it’s not nothing, either. In a two-party system, you can exert a great deal of power by being the head of a party. You have businesses and foreign governments that will pay tribute to you. You have capos spread across the country, ready to do your bidding. You have an audience of something like 40 million partisans who can be mined for contributions and mobilized as a flash mob whenever you need them.”

“A political party is, to paraphrase El Blago, a valuable forking thing. Why would anyone willingly let go of it?”

I’m gonna go out on a limb and agree with the Bulwark, but If Lord Damp Nut loses his Twitter account to Handsome Joe Biden AND if Twitter actually does de-platform him (a big IF), then this observation from the Bulwark falls apart. I suppose all of The New Confederacy is already on Parler, but the mass media is not. Ex-Prznint Stupids reach will no longer exceed his grasp, and that Scissorheads, is what a Heaven is for.

  1. Yeah huge IF…because he drives a lot of revenue Twitter’s way.

    Though it will be interesting to watch the MAGAtariat huffily flounce off the platform if Twitter DOES boot his ass.

    Then, sadly the mass media will, like the pack of scavenging mangy hyenas they are, will start covering Parler and Newsmax, because where else are they gonna get their Cletus Safari fixes? Certainly not by asking Biden voters questions…

    I mean, they’re not even real Americans, after all…

    I’m betting 50 quatloos that if the MHSG does keep the republican party we’ll all gratefully thank him for running it into the ground, bleeding it dry, filing bankruptcy, and leaving its rotting corpse to fester in the sun just like his casino, his airline, his fragrance (don’t ask, you don’t want to know) his football team, his presidency, etc. etc. etc.

    This guy is such a loser he can’t even win for losing. Trump taking ownership of the fucking republican party? Thank Fucking God it’s only a matter of time until this nightmare is finally over.
