Trumpocalypse XV: Old Man Yells At Cloud

You know the drill.

I'm not one to kink-shame, but anyone who finds Spanky attractive is way out of my circle of consent.

Twitter have suspended an account I reported

Thanks again for letting us know. Our investigation found this account violated the Twitter Rules:

From the Desk of Donald J. Trump @N725DT We appreciate your help in improving everyone’s experience on Twitter.

Can't remember what he was saying though!

NYT evidently doesn't feel it has to access Trumpworld any more.

Locked out of Facebook, marooned in Mar-a-Lago and mocked for an amateurish new website, Donald J. Trump remained largely out of public sight this week. Yet the Republican Party’s capitulation to the former president became clearer than ever, as did the damage to American politics he has caused with his lie that the election was stolen from him.

Was it one of those accounts that's tweeting for the Orange guy?

Isolde2 - 10 May 2021 05:39:34 (#305 of 1856)

I felt so, it felt incendiary which was why I reported it. Seems suspension confirms one of the rules was broken at least, don't know which one.

US-style voter suppression comes to the UK:

Navarro is a cretin.

Heh, david litt, ex obama speech writer, goes on newsmax to talk about musk on snl and talks instead about Dominion:

#307 - remember when Trump insinuated that medical workers were stealing PPE? And later that doctors were inflating covid numbers because it earned them more money?

These people are beyond despicable.

misosoup100 - 10 May 2021 18:29:40 (#311 of 1856)

If you think Navarro is a loon on covid, look up his views on the Economy.

misosoup100 - 10 May 2021 18:46:45 (#312 of 1856)

Cancel Culture can't be stopped:

Bob Baffert blamed "cancel culture" after his horse, Medina Spirit, who won the Kentucky Derby, failed its post-race drug test. "We live in a different world now. This America's different." https://twitter.com/MattGertz/status/1391775820507

misosoup100 - 10 May 2021 18:47:30 (#313 of 1856)

He also said that accusing Medina Spirit of doping was disrespectful to the horse.

If you want loons, Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene go to The Villages:

Reporting, including some interviews with MAGAts.

TableTopJoe - 10 May 2021 20:31:31 (#315 of 1856)

That's fairly terrifying.

Isolde2 - 10 May 2021 21:08:39 (#316 of 1856)

remember when Trump insinuated that medical workers were stealing PPE?

Remember when or Hancock implied NHS staff were wasting PPE?

"What I would say it is very important to use the right PPE and not overuse it."

PaperRustler - 10 May 2021 21:18:53 (#317 of 1856)

It's infinitely worse to suggest that they're stealing and selling it though.

Isolde2 - 10 May 2021 21:56:01 (#318 of 1856)

Sure. I wasn't suggesting or even thinking of whether one was worse than another.
