Trump is the second President of the Social Media age

Last edited Tue Mar 20, 2018, 05:24 PM - Edit history (1)

And he weaponized it and pointed that weapon at our heads.

Using it to collect untold riches from foreign governments, and turn our own psyches against it.


This alone is reason enough to impeach him, and ban candidates from social media.

2. If you want young people to start voting, banning candidates from social media is counterproductive

It played a huge role in helping Obama get elected.

8. yea but Obama didn't use it to campaign and collect contributions


Is Trump more evil than Obama was good? (id have to think about that one)

I think social media needs to be heavily regulated.

5. And the social media age just collapsed

under the weight of its own greed and corruption.
They forgot about trust, integrity and the users.

14. tRump can't fucking communicate

that's why he uses social media(twitter) speaking in phrases and (CAPS).

He is an idiot or not well versed in communicating. He is a loser period.

16. You don't think he weaponized social media?

or just nitpicking on who is the first to use it?

I don't like editing posts, but I'm certainly willing to amend the thought that Trump is the first President to use social media against us.
