Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 16, 2020

Donald Trump accused Facebook Inc, Twitter Inc and Alphabet Inc's Google of being controlled by the "Radical Left" and said that his administration is working to remedy what he called an "illegal situation."

From the political corner that Pres Trump has painted himself into, I would suspect that Attila The Hun looks to him as a part of the "radical left."

I totally agree with Trump. He should shutdown Facebook and Twitter until after the election. That will own the libs.

Yeah, sure, Trump, everybody's in on a giant conspiracy. The radical left and the deep state are operating a multinational syndicate to conspire against you through the manipulation of technology, science, journalism, education, state governments, Obama and anyone else capable of critical thinking. Do any of you Trump supporters ever think maybe the issue is Trump and not everybody else?

Trump will set as many fires as it takes to get people's eyes off of the Covid19 death toll.

He wants them bending over backwards to favor him in the election campaign. This will do it.

"This will do it."

No it won't. Trump is all huff and no puff. Trump is a crybaby. Trump is delusional. Trump is a psychopath. Trump is paranoid.

Trump sits around in his jammies until noon, watching FOX, pondering his navel and hatching plots.

And everybody know it. Trump can't even put a crimp in the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Too bad we can't hear the laughter coming from the boardrooms of all these companies he threatens.

Maybe they're are laughing. Trump tried to kill off the USPS because of a grudge with Jeff Bezos. Trump is unhinged, and he's POTUS.

"Trump is unhinged, and he's POTUS."

Trump will always be unhinged but if we do our job in November, that POTUS thing only has another 172 days of longevity.

The onus is on us, not only to save ourselves but also to save a whole country.

Yeah they are radical left ... because genius is evil.

Of course when they hired Bushhole2 we knew they weren't looking for genius.
Trumplethinskin just verifies it.

Dotard's diaper is soiled because Facebook and Twitter kept taking down that insane "Plandemic" conspiracy filled video. Drumpf will sick his pet pitbull Coverup General Barr and the DOJ on FB and Twitter. DOJ is already going after Google on antitrust grounds. This is another Authoritarian move of pure and simple, he has squelched independent oversight within the Executive branch, and Congress is toothless because the regime refuses to respond to lawful subpoenas and then ties them up in court forever. The only entity holding the Regime to account in the media, and he's going to come after them hard next. Many people get their news from FB, Google and Twitter, and he wants to control the message. He's taking a page from Putin's playbook; there is no free press or independent media in Russia, so he never has to answer a difficult question.

@#10 ... DOJ is already going after Google on antitrust grounds ...

That may be appropriate, imo.

Even Facebook has some reasons to be investigated, also imo.

But for business reasons.

To me it looks like Pres Trump wants to go after the "tech giants" for content reasons, not trust-busting business reasons.

The "tech giants" have been taking down content that is posted by extreme right-wing hate groups. Pres Trump objects to that because those groups are part of his base (you know, the "good people"), and he needs them to be able to post content and recruit new members to expand his base.

Trumpy will stop harassing them with his "perfect" phone calls but he just needs a favor first.

Trumpn should firebomb the radical leftists HQ, like Philadelphia did to MOVE.

That apparently wasn't illegal.

Wonder when our free market "c-c-conservatives" will chime in to condemn Trump interfering with natural market forces.

It's hard to know if you are actually joking, but remember Twitter is Trump's -----. There is no way in ---- that he would give that up while he is socially distance from performing rallies. Instead he gets no audience support at his failing press conferences and without audience support his words come off plainly vulgar and that he is in fact stupid and cruel.

#16 I was joking. Trump needs to spew lots of lies to his covidiot base. Fox isn't enough brainwashing to win.

Jabba the Barr will go after anyone Trump wants. Count on it.

his administration is working to remedy what he called an "illegal situation."

The "illegal situation" is already in the White House.

The remedy is the November elections.

What you can do about it is Vote.
