President Trump violated Facebook’s misinformation rules with a (surprise, surprise) dangerous and stupid post.
The post contained a video from a recent Fox & Friends interview in which Trump said that children are ‘almost immune’ to COVID-19. A Facebook spokesperson said that Trump’s video includes ‘false claims that a group of people is immune from COVID-19, which is a violation of our policies around harmful COVID misinformation.’ And so it was yanked. Later, a tweet containing the same video was posted to the @TeamTrump account and was quickly deleted by Twitter for breaking its COVID-19 misinformation rules.
Courtney Parella, one of the head lunatics from the Team Trump campaign, had this to say about the deleted tweet: ‘Another day, another display of Silicon Valley’s flagrant bias against this president, where the rules are only enforced in one direction. Social media companies are not the arbiters of truth.’
