BREAKING: President Trump Is Now Permanently Banned From Twitter
Well, folks, it only took 1,449 days, an attack on our nation's Capitol, and countless blatant, harmful lies, but @jack and his goons finally came through -- President Donald J. Trump, has now officially been permabanned from Twitter.
"After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence," Twitter said in a statement posted to their safety account about their decision to swing that sweet, sweet banhammer. "In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action," the company followed up in a subsequent tweet.
"The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!," POTUS posted. Read the room, Donnie.
The second tweet in question sparked several headlines earlier today, an announcement that he would not be attending Joe Biden's swearing-in later this month, a certifiably petty move not seen since Andrew Johnson didn't attend Ulysses S. Grant's inauguration 152 years ago in 1869, according to CBS News.
"To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th," he wrote. According to Twitter, this post crossed the line as it "could be viewed as a further statement that the election was not legitimate," and serve as a subtle warning that the ceremony may be unsafe, CNN reported.
So readers, as we enter into this (much needed weekend), enjoy scrolling through your feed with reckless abandon, no longer must we live in fear of running across 45's nonsense. To paraphrase Breaking Bad's Walter White, -- it's over. We won.
