COMMENTARY OF THE DAY

       Twitter banned then-President Trump from the platform just hours after site monitors found he had not violated the social media giant’s policy, prompting employees to accuse their colleagues of behaving “like Nazis following orders,” documents show.  Trump may outsmart the evil empire - libearals and socialists.

     Elon Musk’s then installment of the “Twitter Files,” rolled out by independent journalist Bari Weiss reveals the behind-the-scenes chaos as a group of anti-Trump employees pressured top executives to oust the sitting president. The internal debate was waged just days after the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol despite a lack of evidence that Mr. Trump had violated Twitter policy.

     Mr. Trump had one “strike” remaining on his account before he would be permanently banned when, on Jan. 8, 2021, he posted an early morning tweet praising his supporters.  “The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future,” the president tweeted at 6:46 a.m. “They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”  He later posted: “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration [of President Biden] on January 20th.”
