It’s Friday.

President Lameass has tweeted 8 times and retweeted 1 time so far for Friday.

As the Minneapolis riots escalated over the officer involved death of George Floyd, with rioters setting fire to the entrance of a police station, President “I Make Things Worse Not Better” Trump, offered two tweets in response @ 12:53 a.m. D.C. time.

when the looting starts, the shooting starts.

On May 25th, answering a 911 call in Minneapolis, Minnesota, police officers arrested 46 year-old African American George Floyd, who later died while in police custody. The incident was captured on *video.

*The video contains disturbing images, viewer discretion is advised.*

The video linked above shows a white officer holding a handcuffed Floyd down on the ground with his knee placed on his throat. The video is 9 minutes where Floyd tells the officers he can’t breath, with onlookers telling the officer to get up off Floyd as his nose was bleeding. The officer did not remove his knee from Floyd’s throat until after the gurney was brought out. Floyd was later pronounced dead.

Four of the officers involved in the death of Floyd were fired.

Floyd’s death sparked both peaceful protests and riots, on Thursday as the News Blender reported early Friday, the riots had escalated with the National Guard being activated.

His next 3 tweets following his late night tweets were sent between 7:10 a.m. and 8:44 a.m. D.C. time.

At 3:17 a.m. D.C. time, Twitter for the second time labeled a tweet(s) from President Dick as violating their comment policy.

This is screen grab from my iPhone.

This is a screen grab from my PC, using the new Twitter, for those of us clinging to the Legacy version of Twitter we do not see the warning, the material is not hidden, however, as you can see from both screen captures, the like and comment count are disabled, that is also the case with the Legacy version of Twitter.

When a user clicks the word View, the second tweet containing the quote from racist Police Chief Walter Headley appears as follows:

IMO Twitter did the right thing, for many reasons, but the main reason, it’s their rules, we as users of their free service agree to abide by those rules. It’s that freaking simple. Don’t like it, don’t use the free service being offered, use Snapchat, use Facebook, whatever the hell you want, but remember each site has their own rules, just as we at the Blender do, words you can’t use in the comment section, content we remove, and users we ban for violating our policy. By commenting in our comment section you the user are agreeing to our comment policy, it truly is that simple.

As the News Blender covered in Thursday’s Trump Tweets Nonsense, President Idiot who doesn’t understand how anything is suppose to work had two tweets labeled by Twitter as “potentially misleading,” in response to that Twitter offered a link to other information for clarification.

And in response the Idiot that is our President offered a meaningless, but no less dangerous Executive Order entitled Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship..

From the EO:

Online platforms are engaging in selective censorship that is harming our national discourse. Tens of thousands of Americans have reported, among other troubling behaviors, online platforms “flagging” content as inappropriate, even though it does not violate any stated terms of service; making unannounced and unexplained changes to company policies that have the effect of disfavoring certain viewpoints; and deleting content and entire accounts with no warning, no rationale, and no recourse.

Flagging =’s your content being reported by other users…

Unexplained changes to company polices =’s bullshit as when their terms of services are changed we the user have to agree to those changes, it’s that annoying pop up that nobody clicks the “learn more,” link before they click the I accept button.

Entire accounts with no warning, no rational, and no recourse =’s again Bullshit, as Twitter has explained in light of the Russian Propaganda Campaign from 2016, they have a purge system to remove inactive accounts, bots, either Russian or simply spam accounts. If your account is deleted in error, which has been done, you can ask Twitter to restate the account via the email they send you to the email address you gave Twitter when you signed up.

From the EO:

As has been reported, Twitter seems never to have placed such a label on another politician’s tweet.  As recently as last week, Representative Adam Schiff was continuing to mislead his followers by peddling the long-disproved Russian Collusion Hoax, and Twitter did not flag those tweets.  Unsurprisingly, its officer in charge of so-called ‘Site Integrity’ has flaunted his political bias in his own tweets.

See this is all about President Ego’s ego.

Twitter did not censor anyone, not even President Tantrum. His tweet is even now visible.

*I skipped over section 230 on purpose it will be covered down thread.*

After President Unfit for Office cried about Twitter being mean he issued a tweet in all caps.

Night Owl Comment Section. 05/29/2020.
Night Owl Comment Section. 05/29/2020.

After he randomly screams CHINA! President Moron:

The tweet was gone in seconds replaced with:

Seen =’s Scene.

As the News Blender reported early Friday the National Guard was mobilized sometime Thursday. (There is a tweet posted above in the article that shows the National Guard mobilizing.)

President Who Doesn’t Understand what 230 protection means issued another all caps tweet.

230 Protection for private blocking and screening of offensive material…

Cornell Law School.
Cornell Law School.

And in case it’s not clear the intent of 230 was to make it so a company, like the Blender, free site, free content, a staff of volunteer writers, with mods that are also unpaid staff, was not liable for what other people post in their free comment section.

I’m responsible for my content in this article, if I slander someone like by saying Trump is a murderer without context, I could be sued, but if you in the comment section say trump is a murderer without context, only you and not the website the News Blender is responsible for your own slander.

And if that’s not clear enough:

And one more time for the folks in the back…

Updated.

As we await President Dick’s Rose Garden presser that was scheduled to start 24 minutes ago, President Dick try’s to clarify his call for violence tweet that sparked Twitter to warn users about it’s content.

And he wonders how come nobody likes him….


Just another day ending in Y.
