In 2016, the United States could have had one of its most qualified candidates ever to run ending up in the White House, where normalcy would have prevailed, where a global pandemic wouldn’t be discounted once the president got bored with it, and where armed insurrectionists wouldn’t have been encouraged by the leader of our government. Instead, we got Trump, and more than 300,000 Americans have died from COVID-19, our standing in the world is at an all-time low, our economy is crashing, and elected officials had to flee for their lives while President Trump wrote mean tweets about them.
After years of Trump’s endless lies and fear-mongering on Twitter, though, the president we should have gotten got the last laugh.
Donald Trump was indeed banned permanently from Twitter after inciting a riot that shut down our government and ended with five American lives lost. Trump spent weeks inviting his followers by social media and email to come and join the “Trump Army” and demand that their president be reinstalled for another four years, and those social media companies have finally banned him for violating their policies. After all, not staging a coup is a pretty simple rule to remember.
Trump tried to get around the ban by tweeting from his official @POTUS account, which is an ethics violation if anyone still cares, but that account, as well as the official Trump campaign Twitter account, have now been shut down, as well.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton still has a Twitter account. And she’s clapping back in epic style.
Twitter was delighted by Clinton’s expert shade. Read some of their responses below:
