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.
I can’t stand back & watch this happen to a great American City, Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right…..— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
….These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
when the looting starts, the shooting starts.
1/ This line in Trump’s tweet: “when the looting starts, the shooting starts”… is a quote from Miami Police Chief Walter Headley— igorvolsky (@igorvolsky) May 29, 2020
In Dec 1967, months before riots at GOP Convention in Miami, Headley used that quote to announce “get tough” policy for policing black neighborhoods

Trump tweets “when the looting starts, the shooting starts”- this is a quote from a White Southern police chief from the 1960’s who defended Police brutality. This is the man Trump is quoting during protests opposing police brutality. Trump is a THUG!! https://t.co/ISiU5uVSHG— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) May 29, 2020
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.
JUST IN: Police and fire engines have arrived at the epicenter of the protests in Minneapolis, where a number of buildings have been burning. https://t.co/iCXqjSRB1k— CNN (@CNN) May 29, 2020
His next 3 tweets following his late night tweets were sent between 7:10 a.m. and 8:44 a.m. D.C. time.
Twitter is doing nothing about all of the lies & propaganda being put out by China or the Radical Left Democrat Party. They have targeted Republicans, Conservatives & the President of the United States. Section 230 should be revoked by Congress. Until then, it will be regulated!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
“The President has been targeted by Twitter.” @MariaBartiromo What about all of the lies and fraudulent statements made by Adam Schiff, and so many others, on the Russian Witch Hunt Plus, Plus, Plus? What about China’s propaganda? WHO’s mistakes? No flags? @foxandfriends— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
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.
CHINA!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
After he randomly screams CHINA! President Moron:
The tweet was gone in seconds replaced with:
The National Guard has arrived on the scene. They are in Minneapolis and fully prepared. George Floyd will not have died in vain. Respect his memory!!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
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.
REVOKE 230!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
230 Protection for private blocking and screening of offensive material…
For someone with so much to say about Section 230, @HawleyMO knows so little about it. Let’s fact check his claims about Section 230 from the letter he recently sent to @Twitter. Thread: pic.twitter.com/HrVijwlTSv— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
“But editorializing is what publishers do, like the New York Times and the Washington Post. Your company is treated very differently from publishers, as you know.”— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
False. If NYT and WP moderate content, they’re not liable. If Twitter creates content, it’s liable for the content.
“Traditional publishers are liable when they mess up.”— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
True. So is Twitter, for any content it creates, just like “traditional publishers.” There is no difference.
“But under Section 230, Twitter receives a special government carve-out that shields it from liability.”— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
False. Everyone is treated the same, including “traditional publishers” and anyone reading this tweet or breathing.
“That statute tells courts to treat Twitter like a passive distributor of third-party content.”— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
False. The statute is about what you do, not who you are. You’re not liable when you moderate content. You’re potentially liable when you create content. That’s true for everyone.
“Twitter’s decision to affix its own editorial content to users’ posts brings into question the basis for that immunity.”— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
Twitter has no special immunity. You and I have the same immunity. It’s always contextual, not blanket immunity.
“It makes little sense to treat companies that publish their editorial comments about others’ content as if they are mere distributors.”— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
The law doesn’t treat anyone as “mere” anything. It’s contextual, not all or nothing.
“Companies that act like publishers should be treated like publishers.”— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
All are treated the same under the law. The law doesn’t define anyone as a “publisher” in all contexts.
“Section 230 should not treat Twitter and neutral internet service providers in the same way when they function so differently.”— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
Write a bill, but don’t pretend you’re some hero of free speech. Undermining Section 230 will embolden government regulators and harm free speech.
If you’d like to read Section 230, you can find it here: https://t.co/b8Tlt7xY2h— Justin Amash (@justinamash) May 28, 2020
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:
If Trump destroys twitter, he will deplatform himself. How does he not see this?🤔— Lenny🧟♂️Ghoul #NeverTrump #NeverBiden (@LennyGhoul) May 28, 2020
And one more time for the folks in the back…
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.
Looting leads to shooting, and that’s why a man was shot and killed in Minneapolis on Wednesday night – or look at what just happened in Louisville with 7 people shot. I don’t want this to happen, and that’s what the expression put out last night means….— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
….It was spoken as a fact, not as a statement. It’s very simple, nobody should have any problem with this other than the haters, and those looking to cause trouble on social media. Honor the memory of George Floyd!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 29, 2020
And he wonders how come nobody likes him….
Here’s Trump’s public schedule for tomorrow. It does not include the “press conference on China” Trump said today would be held tomorrow, though that could possibly be added later. (Public schedules don’t include all of a president’s activities.) pic.twitter.com/kynkgvhfo6— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) May 29, 2020
The White House has added a 2 PM Trump news conference to the schedule. https://t.co/Z5hZQmaJ4A— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) May 29, 2020
Just another day ending in Y.
