The president of the United States is well known for his ridiculous social media tempter-tantrums. The highly embarrassing hissy-fits result in thousands of people responding in protest of whatever craziness Trump is ranting about that day, or to his administration in general. The Donald can’t handle even the slightest bit of criticism, which is why everyone should take time out of their day to comment on his tweets to remind him that the world can see through his facade.
The big crybaby has blocked countless Twitter accounts from being able to see the messages he sends out to the world. That is right. The president of the United States has blocked dozens of private citizens from the apparent privilege it is to see his tweets.
A federal court ruled May 23rd that, “Donald Trump may not legally block Twitter users from his account on the social media platform based on their political views.”
According to Reuters:
“U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in Manhattan ruled on May 23 that comments on the president’s account, and those of other government officials, were public forums and that blocking Twitter users for their views violated their right to free speech under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.”
Jameel Jaffer is the attorney for many of the people who sued for being blocked. He confirmed Monday that the president had unblocked all of his clients. Jaffer had this to say:
“We’re pleased that the White House unblocked our clients from the President’s Twitter account but disappointed that the government intends to appeal the district court’s thoughtful and well-supported ruling.”
The Justice Department has now confirmed that claim, and added that they are appealing the judge’s decision.
A number of celebrities have also claimed they were blocked by President Trump on Twitter, but no word on whether or not Trump will be unblocking anyone other than the people he was ordered to unblock in court.
