As we know, President Trump was banned from Facebook and Twitter. Ironically, nearly a year ago (May 20, 2020), Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook was interviewed by Hugh Hewitt. You can find the full interview here:

    Hugh Hewitt's Interview of Mark Zuckerberg

Here's a part of that interview discussing Facebook's 20 member "Oversight Board":

Hugh Hewitt: The most piercing criticism I’ve heard, and I’m not really much on content moderation, I’m much more libertarian than most, is that of the 20 members, 15 are not Americans. Of the 5, only one is an originalist. I know Judge McConnell, but he’ll get rolled by 19 people. And do we really want 15 foreigners moderating content about American political discourse? In other words, how in the world did we end up, it’s almost like a new Coke moment. How did you with your commitment at Georgetown, and even on Monday at the European speech, how did you end up with a group that most sort of free speech absolutists like me say "oh, my gosh, that’s not a free speech group, that’s a bureaucracy like the EU"?

Mark Zuckerberg: Well, I think we’re going to have to see how it, and I think it’ll build its credibility over time through the decisions it makes.


So of the 20 members of Facebook's "Oversight Board", 15 are not Americans, and of the 5 Americans, only 1 might be considered an "originalist" (conservative). That doesn't sound like a group that wants to Make America Great Again. Is it any surprise that they've banned President Trump?

I have to say that makes me feel a lot better about being banned by Jack and Davis. After all, I've been working to Make Hang Gliding Great Again. ;)

Today, President Trump announced his planned lawsuit to fight his bans by Facebook and Twitter.

President Trump is still fighting to make America Free Again!!

A friend sent me this:

Abbot & Costello’s Who’s Been Vaccinated

Bud: ‘You can’t come in here!’
Lou: ‘Why not?’
Bud: ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’
Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’
Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’
Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’
Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’
Bud: ‘Yes.’
Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’
Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’
Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’
Lou: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’
Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’
Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’
Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’
Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look, I’m not sick.’
Bud: ‘Ok.’
Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’
Bud: ‘That’s right.’
Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Certainly.’
Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’
Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’
Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’
Bud: ‘That’s fine.’
Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’
Bud: ‘Absolutely not.’
Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’
Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’
Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’
Bud: ‘I know.’
Lou: ‘So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ... If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’
Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’
Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’
Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’
Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’
Bud: ‘Correct.’
Lou: ‘Why not?’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’
Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’
Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’
Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’
Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’
Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’
Bud: ‘Masks work quite well.’
Lou: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’
Bud: ‘Third base.

Parody should be more prominent, not only with Trump.

Clowns are part of a circus and should be treated as such.

Wikipedia has a page on Donald Trump that includes the following statement at the end of the introduction:

Wikipedia wrote:Scholars and historians rank Trump as one of the worst presidents in American history.

This seems entirely inappropriate on Wikipedia, and there has been some discussion about that claim on the talk page.

Someone should ask who had been quoted by Wikipedia as the "worst President" before President Trump was elected. That might help to reveal the inappropriate bias in that statement.
