“Twitter has taken the unprecedented step of adding fact-check warnings to two of President Donald Trump’s tweets that falsely called mail-in ballots “substantially fraudulent” and predicted a “Rigged Election.” On Wednesday, the president threatened to impose new regulation on social media companies or even to “close them down.”
HERE is an article which follows that opening paragraph.
Trump is right about mail-in ballots being susceptible to fraud. What was wrong was calling them “substantially fraudulent” because it appears like he knows this for a fact. Again, he speaks without knowing. And a “rigged Election”? I think it will be…or it’ll try. Hard to sell that and not get slammed. BUT….
ARE OPINIONS NOT ACCEPTED BY TWITTER? REALLY? And WHY NOW are they slamming him? He’s said FAR FAR FAAAR worse on twitter.
“Twitter says users can expect to see more such flags thrown on misleading tweets about voting.” But, it’s NOT ‘misleading’…it’s HIS OPINION. And, by the way, he’s probably right. And there are experts who agree about mail-in voting, not the few who do that because they’re sick or lazy. We’re talking about WHOLE STATES TOLD TO VOTE BY MAIL. Because of the pandemic? You can go and rub elbows at Walmart but you can’t go in, in much more orderly fashion than any store allows, and VOTE?
BOTTOM LINE: They’re CENSORING A PRESIDENT FROM CONJECTURE.
Or am I wrong? What do you think?
and, BY THE WAY…you know how I keep complaining about Trump’s people not VETTING ENOUGH? REALLY? GAD. This stuff is SO EASY if you know what you’re doing 😦
