President Donald Trump’s campaign was banned from Tweeting on Wednesday after Twitter told the president his campaign had to delete the misinformation about children not getting the coronavirus.

Earlier in the day, Facebook made a similar move, but removed Trump’s post themselves, marking it a lie. Twitter took a more drastic approach, which is likely going to draw the president’s ire and the anger from his son, Donald Trump Jr. who was barred from Twitter last week.

According to the Washington Post, Twitter has been under pressure to do more about Trump lying on their platform as well as other Trump allies lying about issues.

Twitter spokeswoman Liz Kelley said the tweet “is in violation of the Twitter Rules on COVID-19 misinformation. The account owner will be required to remove the Tweet before they can Tweet again.”

The video that was removed was of Trump on “Fox & Friends” Wednesday morning saying that children can’t get the coronavirus.

“If you look at children, children are almost — and I would almost say definitely — but almost immune from this disease,” and that they have stronger immune systems,” said Trump.

Even his outward appearance is a fraud: his unsubstantiated self-confidence, his hair, his clown makeup, his baggy suits designed to hide his doughy frame, even his shoes, which appear to have unusually high heels — it's all intended to make him appear physically more powerful than he actually is. Fake, fake and fake.

Yes, the Reichstag is on fire — but the American people have water to put it out: Will Bunch

Part of a life well-lived, I’ve come to realize, is hanging on to an old quote from a mentor or family member that over time has taken on much deeper meaning than when it was uttered to you as a clueless 16-year-old. For me, it’s the oxymoron that my high school football coach, Rob Pickert, used to teach how a defensive end must rush a quarterback — “with reckless abandon, but under control.” Over the next 45 years I’d see that’s the right way to tackle a lot of problems … including a vainglorious wannabe dictator poised to end U.S. democracy.My thoughts on President Donald Trump’s open contem...
