Twitter Suspends Donald Trump Jr. for Tweeting COVID-19 Misinformation

Mod: Couldn't have happened to a more deserving creep.

Twitter Suspends Donald Trump Jr. for Tweeting COVID-19 Misinformation (Vice link): Twitter has temporarily suspended the account belonging to Donald Trump Jr, the son of U.S. President Donald Trump after he posted content that violated the company’s policies on misinformation related to the coronavirus pandemic.

The account will be suspended for 12 hours, during which time Don Jr. will be barred from posting new messages, liking or retweeting other posts. He will still be allowed to use Twitter’s Direct Message service to contact his followers. A Twitter spokesperson said this was not a suspension, that it was a "temporary lockout until the Tweet is deleted—not a suspension."

The tweet that triggered the suspension linked to a video that contains multiple falsehoods and dubious claims about COVID-19 and its treatments. The post was deleted and replaced with a message simply saying “this tweet is no longer available.”

President Trump also posted several tweets linking to the video on Monday night. While his account was not suspended, the tweets were also deleted.

The video showed a group of people dressed in white lab coats claiming to be from an organization called “America’s Frontline Doctors.”

The video, which was live-streamed by right-wing news outlet Breitbart, contained people claiming masks were not needed and that hydroxychloroquine was a “cure.” “Tweets with the video are in violation of our COVID-19 misinformation policy. We are taking action in line with our policy,” the Twitter spokesperson said.

  10. It's 1980 in reverse.

    With 100 days left, Election Day 2020 is fast-approaching. The Real Clear Politics polling average gives presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden an average 8.7 percentage point nationwide lead. Swing state polls look even better for the former vice president. Biden leads in Pennsylvania by 11 points; Wisconsin by 8; Michigan by 9; and Florida by 5 — states President Trump probably needs to win a second term.

    Down-ballot polling suggests a Democratic tidal wave is gathering strength. The generic House ballot gives Democrats an 8.6 percentage point advantage, while the non-partisan Cook Political Report awards Democrats an additional five to seven Senate seats come November. Together, these numbers point toward a comfortable Democratic majority in the next Congress.

    In many ways, 2020 is 1980 in reverse. That year, Ronald Reagan won a landslide victory and Republicans made remarkable congressional gains. Entering the fall campaign, President Carter’s approval rating stood at a dismal 38 percent. Carter hoped to overcome his poor marks by making his opponent the issue. Many saw Reagan as too old (he was 69 and would be the oldest president at that time); too out-of-touch (he called the Vietnam War a “noble cause”); and too gaffe-prone (he said trees were a major cause of pollution). Carter’s chief strategist, Hamilton Jordan, chortled that it was “delicious” watching Reagan “stumble from one controversy to the next.” The Carter game plan was clear: Make the election a choice, not a referendum.

  12. ‘I’m here to tell my story’: Bill Barr gets angry as Dem lawmaker grills him on Roger Stone sentencing

    Attorney General William Barr lashed out at Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) on Tuesday after he was asked about the sentencing of Roger Stone.

    During a hearing before a House committee, Johnson quipped that the Attorney General’s opening statement “reads like it has been written by Alex Jones or Roger Stone.”

    “Isn’t it true when prosecutors in the Roger Stone case filed a memo recommending a sentence of 7 to 9 years in prison, a few hours later, President Trump tweeted that the sentence recommendation was — quote — a disgrace?” Johnson asked.

    “Yes,” Barr agreed.

    “And several hours after that, you filed a pleading with the court stating that the sentence recommendation should be changed and you would be asking for a lighter sentence for Roger Stone?” Johnson continued.

  13. Pity poor Don Jr: He has to go through life, every day and every night, every week, and every month and year, knowing with absolute certainty that he's even dumber than his father.
