If you agree with served you have to agree with served equally. You cant put all the blacks in the back. And you cant treat the POTUS any differently than your average Joe. That's discrimination 101. 

Fair point but I believe it’s far more nuanced than that.  The POTUS carries a responsibility in his communication that the average Joe doesn’t. The average Joe could be taunting flat earth theory‘s and pizzagate conspiracies, the POTUS carries an obligation not to. You can’t bucket everything together with racial discrimination, context and nuance do factor in.  And whether the POTUS likes it or not they are treated differently than your average Joe. That’s what you sign up for as a leader and that’s not discrimination, that’s accountability. As a leader you’re held to a higher standard, that comes with the territory and is part of what you sign up for.

@tonydead I have to admit you make some excellent points here. You’ve got me undecided but leaning towards your POV on this question. 

Why does this make me feel even better about my position?  😉

Question.  What's your position on other leaders like Maxine Waters saying the Minnesota police killings were due to Trump?  How should something like that be handled?  What responsibility does the news outlet that airs that interview have?  What responsibility does Waters have?  How do we hold her accountable?

For real, google Obama and Lies and look at the novel the comes up on sites like politifact. Same old hypocrisy. 

I think that every time someone here cites "Trump's lies"....I'm simply going to respond with that link.

Oh...and before the usual suspects start posting "well...Trump Lies".....here's the difference:

You cite "Trump's lies" and say that you won't vote for him because of these lies while in office.....yet, you plan on voting for Biden despite his decades of lies while running for, and holding office.

I am citing "Biden's damn lies" and plagiarisms to show the absolute hypocrisy of your statement.

So, when you are listing the reasons you won't be voting for President Trump...do yourselves (and us) a favor and leave "the lies" off the list.

You just look silly.

Shall we start with "sexual predator"?

What was it that Trump said??  "...grab 'em by the ........"?
What was it that Biden's been accused of??  ...grabbing her by the......?

Do I need to post the videos of "Creepy Uncle Joe"?

BTW...It was the WAPO that labeled him "Creepy"...way before he announced for POTUS.

At the very least, on the Twitter platform, I think there's a difference between "random Twitter account" and "blue check mark verified Twitter account".  Can we all at least agree that it's legitimate to treat verified accounts different than non-verified accounts, before we get into the discussion on the legitimacy of potentially treating Trump's account differently than "misc. verified Hollywood celeb account"?

We're not going to use this forum to score points for your side calling Trump a sexual predator. We're not going to use this forum to score points for your side calling Biden a sexual predator. These are not hidden stories. These are serious stories. Both for the accused and obviously for the accuser. We're not going to flippantly throw them out here to take shots at the other side from accounts with anonymous screen names. The internet is full of places to call people things like this all day long. Please do it there.

The post was not to call Joe Biden anything.

The pointless goal was to point out the absolute hypocrisy of one side accusing a candidate of something of which their candidate is just as (if not more) guilty.

I am getting pretty sick and tired of the relentless postings that say they won't vote for President Trump because of Accusation A, but will vote for a Biden despite the same accusation being leveled at him....in the "Trump-2020" thread.

You don't want to vote for President Trump because "Orange Man Bad"....then don't.
But don't list the reasons for your decision when Biden is has garnered the exact, same accusations against him

You are absolutely correct....."The internet is full of places to call people things like this all day long"...and so does this forum.
This forum has countless threads where accusations against President Trump are thrown around all day with very little repercussion...but I am pretty sure that #Knowledge Dropper created this thread as a place where those who actually support our president, can post without fighting off the hoard.

Our little bubble inside everyone else's huge bubble.

I've said this a few times.  I would rather the left be open and honest and just admit that what Biden is accused of is bad, and they don't like it, but it's anyone but Trump at all costs.  

You have people here who have publicly said they would take a recession over Trump, but are trying to defend Biden.  It is illogical and once again, hypocritical--which is the worst

Ugh, I've been trying to stay out of this, I even deleted a post about it, but:

  • The info is from a washed up ex blonde bombshell actress with some extreme and disinformed views in other twitter posts.
  • She posts a video with no statement or branding of where it comes from.
  • The video is altered, it's slowed and cut.
  • The voiceover purports to be of an expert who is talking generally, he's not talking about Biden. It's laid over video of Biden to suggest he is, when he is not.
  • The goal of the video/post - by Kristi Swanson - is to convince the viewer not that Biden is a sexual predator, but that he is a pedophile. It's about "grooming" children.

The whole thing is sick and deceptive. I like Widbill, I appreciate him, I enjoy speaking with him and getting his POVs on things. Really not going at him, but this whole exchange is emblematic of the continuing sheer desire to absorb feel-good misinformation and disinformation.

All good questions and all questions that are vastly widening the scope of the original discussion.  The original discussion was does Twitter have the right to delete or flag a post.  Your question venture off into the media and it’s responsibility.  With that said....

I have not seen the Waters quote, if she’s saying what you are claiming it’s flat wrong and irresponsible.  In this instance could Twitter delete or flag her posts on that, yes of course, noW “should they” is a whole different discussion which I do t believe they should or it’s their responsibility.  The same statement hold true for the Trump tweet. The right to vs should are totally different discussions.

There is no room right now. The MSM is bought and paid for by the elite on both sides. A guy like Yang never stood a chance. 

The presidency is now only for swamp creatures or billionaires. We need some serious election reform.

While I won’t argue one bit what you are saying, this all (minus the recession question which was never posed in Obama, etc) is absolutely true about the right.  The hypocrisy on both directions is so thick you could cut it with a butter knife.

Agreed.  That’s why we need to remember we hold the power with our vote.  Yang never stood a chance because of what Trump built a successful career (and ultimately a Presidency) on, branding and marketing.   It’s disgustingly disappointing.

Hm yeah the blondeness not so much, "blonde actress" just meant ex-starlet with zero insight into the issue. She's 1. not a reporter, 2. not even vouching for the material, 3. not even someone who would know anything about the subject, 4. she's as random as some Algerian dude posting Isis videos. I mean, Alec Baldwin thinks Orange Man Bad, same thing.

Lol Tony, it was just the claim "she didn't mean nothin' by it" is laughable. It outright claims Biden is a pedophile. Not a harasser or gross or an assaulter, the claim of the video is outright that he's a pedophile.

Was this tweet a dire prediction based on previous similar situations ... or an ominous threat of what will happen if looting occurs?

He (or rather his aides) obviously realized it was perceived as a threat, particularly after the history of "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" quote surfaced.

He backtracked on it with a tweet today and took no questions at a press conference where 35 reporters were assembled. If it had not been viewed as a threat he would not have qualified his original tweet, as there would have been no need to.

So, I am guessing that without President Trump's tweet, it would have remained peaceful?

You are basing that assumption on previous, similar events?

Even if he would have said..."If I had a son...."?
