Twitter Adds Message to Two of Trump’s Tweets


Impeached President Trump announced last night he would be signing an executive order the aim of which is to allow the government to punish social networks after Twitter did the bare minimum of placing a carefully worded warnings basically saying that the reader should fact check the information. 


This was placed on only two of Trump’s tweets.  It would have been best for Trump to just have ignored this and go on about his work especially since Twitter did not seem to be interested in doing any more to him.  But no, Trump instead decide it was best to make a big deal over the entire situation.


While the executive order is a disturbing battering on the free word, it also does nothing, and appears to be all for show. Now President Trump is stuck with the negative stories about him claiming that he is unstable, abuser of power, and he has not gotten his way when it comes to Twitter’s  fact checks.


Trump melted down like an infant as he does frequently, stating “So ridiculous to see Twitter trying to make the case that Mail-In Ballots are not subject to FRAUD. How stupid, there are examples, & cases, all over the place. Our election process will become badly tainted & a laughingstock all over the World.


Of course, if anyone does any fact checking on this issue, one will find that his opinion on mail-in ballots have truly little if any examples or stories defending this position. Instead just the opposite is found – little scandal with mail-in ballots. Opposition to voting by mail is based on misconceptions.   


Each mail-in ballot is signed by the voter after they seal their vote.  When the count is being done, this signature must match the voter’s signature on file with that state’s voter rolls. Any signature that does not match is not counted, that envelope is not even opened.


Many states have had mail-in voting for years for many reasons such as the voter being able unable to vote in-person due to age, disabilities, or other reasons.  The military is allowed to mail in their vote.  People out of town during voting day are allowed to vote my mail.


If there is no proof that Trump is correct, then he is already lost his battle with Twitter and other social media. He is being widely criticized and lampooned, and many believe looks like an idiot in the eyes of others – whether in the US or other countries.
