    So I guess we can not start tweeting about how Trump raped teenagers and women and killed prostitutes and that would be ok with Twitter? Can he not be sued for this type of thing? Spreading lies about murders and slandering people? The widower should be able to sue for harassment, because that is what it is.

    What a disgusting excuse for a human being. Just a pathetic, insecure, immature sad man. I swear I am going to throw the biggest party when this ass hat is gone. The vile ugliness he spreads everyday (instead of attempting to do his job) is infuriating. The amount of hate that I have for the POTUS is immeasurable. So sorry to my American friends, family and fellow CB’ers that you have to live though this crap.

    Reading his letter, and watching Amy Cooper’s disgusting video, has made me sad and angry. Sad for the innocent victims and angry that in this day and age, the fucking POS-POTUS gets away with saying the most outrageous, hurtful lies PUBLICLY. Sad that his base believes every awful, deceitful, vitriolic thing that he spews. Sad that he promulgates violence as an answer to every issue rather than look thoughtfully at how to work together to end something as threatening as a global pandemic. Sad that he gleefully trashes everyone who opposes him with the most inane, childish bullshit.

    Then you have Amy Cooper. Icing on the shitcake that is society and politics today.

    I can’t wait until this piece of filth is gone.

    As much as Joe Scarborough gets on my nerves, this is unhinged. He was 1000 miles away from FL when this poor woman died and the constant texts are so cruel. I know that is Trumps M.O. but Jesus he husband and parents must fear the news every day. 2 and 1/2 years later I can choke up talking about my dad passing. To have the President and his evil conspiracy mob on them is just so inhuman. I would think both Scarborough and the Executors of Lori’s estate would have defamation claims here.

    Twitter deserves a lot more shit for letting him get away with his abuses of power on their platform than people are holding them to. They’re cowards, same as they’ve always been. Just your typical rich white boys pretending to care about freedom of speech rather than having any respect for the complex reality of the responsibility that right entails.

    • Ann says:

      They totally definitely deserve so much more shit than they get. Trump has violated so many of their rules, and laws, so for F sake just take it away from him! All the big tech companies are cowards and greedy jerks. They have all this power and all this money and they’re too afraid of the pissing off The Base to solve problems they are entirely culpable for. It’s infuriating.

      • Valerie says:

        He has likely violated every possible term on the TOS. He’s a chronic rule-breaker who has a problem with authority. He’s probably oppositional defiant.

    • Anne Call says:

      I was banned from twitter for 24 hours for saying that Republican Party may wither and die away after trump. Meanwhile this guy spews hatred and vile accusations non stop. He retweeted someone this weekend who called HRC a skank. Just disgusting. I’m ashamed and embarrassed for my country.

      • Lightpurple says:

        I have lost three Twitter accounts because Trump followers report people they can’t handle

  6. Sam the Pink says:

    He twists the truth so much – notice how he says it’s a cold case? That’s to make it appear like there is some kind of actual lingering question as to this case. There is not – nobody regards this case as open – not the police, not the medical examiner, not the family, nobody.

    Also, his whole theory is that Joe killed the young lady because they were having an affair that he needed to hide. He is smearing a dead women by suggesting that she engaged in an affair with a married man and that she was unfaithful to her own husband. This man is now having to see the President besmirch his wife, who is not here to defend herself. How must he feel? What thoughts must be in his head? And Jack Dorsey is pathetic for permitting this.

  7. Lightpurple says:

    As painful as it will be for them, I hope the Klausutis family sues both Trump and Twitter. Lori Klausutis is not a public figure. Trump is accusing her of adultery with no proof whatsoever and the woman can’t defend herself. Twitter is allowing him to do it. Sue!

    • holly hobby says:

      Joe can sue for slander. Sue Twitter! They will change their tune then!

      • CROWHOOD says:

        I agree, except it’s like NDA’s. They aren’t really enforceable but nobody wants to pay for the legal battles against them. Joe could sue the president and win, it would be such an emotional and financial drain. It shouldn’t be on a private citizen to fund the resistance against a private platform’s willingness to allow the President to lie and propagate and spew hatred.

    • Veronica S. says:

      It’s about due time somebody did, to be honest, at the least because it would open up the conversation about the responsibility big social media corporations have in misinformation campaigns. And in this case, it’s such an obvious violation of the TOS in contrast to how they treat other users that they wouldn’t have much of a leg to stand on in court.

  8. Valerie says:

    Sorry, not sorry: Fuck Twitter for allowing this. He is a president in name only, and he should not be the exception to the rule. People have been banned for less. He has gotten away with inciting violence and spreading misinformation with nearly every tweet, including giving credence to conspiracy theories. It’s true that if banned, he would just find another platform, but let him. Let him melt down first.

    • Sam the Pink says:

      They don’t even have to ban him – Lori’s husband is only asking for the offensive tweets to be deleted. That’s not even a ban! And Twitter has done it in the past – they’ve suspended or deleted the accounts of several high level Iranian politicians for calling the violence against Israel or Jews (which was the correct call). What makes Trump different?

      • Valerie says:

        That’s true — I was just thinking a straight ban would really piss him off. But being deleted would have the same effect.

    • Elizabeth says:

      I agree! And there is no platform like Twitter. What’s he going to do, lumber around on TikTok?

  9. adastraperaspera says:

    Jack Dorsey is responsible for what Twitter has become–a place for the Kremlin and other hostile foreign powers to disseminate weaponized misinformation to destroy democracies worldwide. Trump’s Twitter account is a feature, not a bug. Follow the money, and you will see why.

    “American tech executives and venture capitalists—including Jack Dorsey, the co-founder and CEO of Twitter—traveled to Russia in 2010 to meet with Russian tech entrepreneurs and Kremlin officials. [Russian President at the time] Medvedev made a famous trip to Silicon Valley, where, beaming in Twitter’s headquarters, he started his own Twitter account and wrote his first (misspelled) tweet.”

    Twitter responded with some lame bs about reviewing their rules. In other words, they aren’t going to remove them. They aren’t going to anger the Orange Menace or his followers. Jack has to keep those dollars flowing in.

  12. WatchingATrainwreak says:

    All of this is just so disheartening…that this kind of behavior is being viewed as acceptable to anyone. Take out the politics, hard to do I know, but when did we become so hateful to each other. When did we become so outrageous & also too numb to react with outrage. I remember when Trump claimed that he helped to make Joe & Mika a success…while suspecting Joe of a crime while doing so???? Where’s the outrage about THAT? But then associating with & elevating someone you are implicating is a murderer is just normal now???? Where’s the outrage about THAT? It’s only a short hop to assume Trump thought or knew Epstein was a sexual predator while Trump was partying with him because it was beneficial to himself. Moral bankruptcy to a degree that is unacceptable to civilized populations.

    I’m so exhausted of the daily barrage we are seeing on the news…proof of which we currently live in a society where lying & petty cruelties are becoming more overt & verbal attacks, physical assaults, and murders are being perpetrated against people who are just trying to live their lives.

    I come to this site because so many of you still express the outrage that I feel, but don’t hear within my community. Thank you all.

    • Ang says:

      I feel everything you just said. I’m worried about people if this behavior is considered acceptable. It’s just so maddening.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Ironically history is just as bad and often worse.

  13. KellyRyan says:

    I haven’t been on Twitter for over a year. I believe any communication Drumpf engages in becomes part of the presidential historical record. We can only hope the Republican party is reminded of his posts once he’s voted out.

  14. Duchess of Corolla says:

    I despise every atom of this miserable piece of Orange scum that has infested the White House. He cannot go a moment too soon. He is destroying America, and he should rot for it.

  15. Emily says:

    This is Trump’s thing.

    Make something up. Repeat it over and over again. See if it sticks.

    He did with with the Central Park Five and the birther movement. He’s trying it with Witch Hunt and Obamagate. It’s all nonsense.

  16. Norman Bates' Mother says:

    Why “deep sigh” for Naomi Osaka? Is she problematic? I’m not that familiar with her.
