Activists project ‘Jack is complicit’ on Twitter headquarters to protest keeping Trump’s Twitter account active

Published

on

An activist group this week went after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for not shutting down President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.

The Verge reports that a group called Resistance SF projected the message “@Jack is complicit” on the side of Twitters headquarters in San Francisco on Tuesday evening after Trump infamously sent out a tweet boasting that his “nuclear button” was bigger than North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s.

“@jack breaks the rules of his own company, Twitter, to amplify a madman and endanger the world,” the group wrote on Facebook. “Jack Dorsey must resign or ban @realDonaldTrump.”

The Verge notes that Dorsey has justified keeping Trump’s account active by noting that what the president says publicly is inherently newsworthy.

“I believe it’s really important to hear directly from our leadership,” Dorsey said last year. “And I believe it’s really important to have these conversations out in the open, rather than have them behind closed doors.”

Trump went off on multiple Twitter tirades on Tuesday in which he not only boasting about the size of his “nuclear button,” but also called for the Justice Department to prosecute Hillary Clinton, took credit for the lack of airline crashes in 2017, and announced that he would no longer try to seek a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians because the Palestinians haven’t shown America “appreciation and respect.”

Trump tweets deranged rant about Mueller and the FBI as hearing draws nearer

Published

on

On Monday, President Donald Trump tweeted an angry invective against former special counsel Robert Mueller, who is slated to testify before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees on Wednesday, proclaiming once again — falsely — that the report showed "NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION!"

He followed up this outburst with complaints about a litany of villains frequently promoted by Fox News, including the Hillary Clinton campaign and two former FBI agents who were fired after having a affair and who supposedly were biased against him in text messages (though no evidence has ever shown they improperly influenced Mueller's investigation):

Trump busted for lying about not having ‘talking points’ about Dem congresswomen

Published

on

President Donald Trump furiously denied reporting that his aides had supplied him with "reams of opposition research" about four Democratic congresswomen.

The president has been lobbing racist attacks at the first-year lawmakers since last weekend, and the Washington Post reported that aides had supplied the background research to urge Trump to question their patriotism and political ideas, rather than calling on them to leave the country.

"The Amazon Washington Post front page story yesterday was total Fake News," Trump tweeted Monday morning. "They said 'Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four Congresswomen.'"

Marco Rubio brutally shamed by hometown newspaper for ‘pathetic’ response to Trump’s racism

Published

on

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is getting raked over the coals by his hometown newspaper.

In a scathing editorial published this week, the Miami Herald called out Rubio for his "pathetic" response to Trump's racist attacks on four Democratic lawmakers.

The editorial argues that Rubio had once promised to be a check on Trump's worst excesses -- but he's instead been a consistent "sycophant" who has regularly debased himself to gain Trump's approval.

"He has transformed from Trump critic to a sycophantic cheerleader -- derided by former adviser and Washington Post columnist Max Boot as a 'Trump fan-boy' -- to the point that he’s willing to kill Obamacare even though his own state leads the nation in enrollment," the editorial argues.
