Trump Announces Conspiracy Between Twitter & Democrats

Donald Trump cannot resist attacking Twitter. What an odd thing to do. After all, Twitter is his one-way window upon the world, his megaphone to broadcast his ceaseless, ever-more-deranged tweets. Why would he attack his top medium?

POTUS’ latest tweets are reminiscent of the fable about the scorpion, or the snake, depending upon a person’s preference. The insect or the reptile sees a frog and wants to hitch a ride across the river. Frog says “No.” He claims that the scorpion/reptile will sting/bite and kill him. The insect/reptile says “Oh, no! I would never do that. I would drown,” paraphrasing from The SNOPES website.

So the frog agrees. Insect/reptile hops on. Sure enough, the creature stings/bites the frog who cries out “why did you do that?” Scorpion/Snake replied, “It is my nature, it is what I do.”

Many of the president’s acts are as nonsensical as the creature in this old story. Trump must have not had much to do Thanksgiving night. He fired off his late-night tweets claiming that Twitter has been trying to undermine him with “false ‘trends:'”

Twitter is sending out totally false “Trends” that have absolutely nothing to do with what is really trending in the world. They make it up, and only negative “stuff”. Same thing will happen to Twitter as is happening to @FoxNews daytime. Also, big Conservative discrimination!’

Claiming National Secretary as the problem, he said terminating part of the law that covers tweets needed to be “immediately termination!!!” He said:

‘For purposes of National Security, Section 230 must be immediately terminated!!!’

‘They make it up, and only negative “stuff.” Same thing will happen to Twitter as is happening to @FoxNews daytime. Also, big Conservative discrimination!’

In a separate tweet, he wrote:

‘For purposes of National Security, Section 230 must be immediately terminated!!!’

The president and Republicans have pushed against Section 230 of the Communications Decency Action. It reads:

‘No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider” (47 U.S.C. § 230).’

The Republicans who speak up appear to be the most Trumpish of all. Both they and the president want to get rid of Section 230. It is the Decency Act that they claim allows media corporations to discriminate against them:

‘Section 230 was passed in 1996, protects tech companies from liability for third-party content posted on their platforms if they make “good faith” efforts to regulate what goes on their websites.’

Trump did not give enough detail to let the viewer know which tweets or trends were “totally false,” but in his Turkey Day press conference he cited the person with the hashtag “DiaperDon” as helping.

#DiaperDon has been used as an alias by a number of actors. Star Wars Mark Hamill tweeted:

‘Maybe if you behave yourself, stop lying to undermine a fair election & start thinking of what’s good for the country instead of whining about how unfairly you are treated, you’ll be invited to sit at the big boy’s table.’
