The latest billionaire-generated social media takeover by the hapless Elon Musk wasted no time pulling the previous president back onto Twitter. But fearless Lt. Colonel Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) hit the newly Twitter-reinstated Donald Trump right where it hurt. In the truth. As Kinzinger tweeted, the ex-president left the social media platform because he was “suspended for lighting an insurrection.”
Musk paid over price for Twitter and appeared to be doing his best to kill the social media platform. Maybe the new Twitter owner was trying to do a financial write-off, but whatever the intent, the January 6 Select Committee member noted that this reinforced only Trump’s base.
Musk tweeted the results of his informal poll:
‘The people have spoken. Trump will be reinstated. Vox Populi, Vox Dei. (Voice of the People. Voice of God).’
Musk had to show us how smart he is by tweeting Latin. He referred to the “Voice of the People.” But what was weirdest about the billionaire’s tweet was he added “Voice of God.” Now that could have referred to the people, or it could be Elon’s signature. After all, those who worked for him referred to him as “god.”
Kinzinger added that Elon bought “approval from the right” at a hefty price:
‘Keep in mind trump wasn’t suspended for being a meanie. He was suspended for lighting an insurrection and when it failed tweeting “this is what you get…” Lies lies lies with a price. But hey at least Elon gets approval from the alt right. $44 billion dollar troll.’
The people will certainly watch as Musk flails about, mismanaging a long-time public forum he turned into just another “troll.”
