On Friday night, Twitter permanently suspended President Donald Trump's account, citing his potential to incite violence further.

The crackdown on the president's Twitter usage predictably infuriated Trump. He went "ballistic," a senior administration official told Politico.

After the ban, Trump tweeted from the official @POTUS Twitter account but his posts were almost immediately deleted.

Similarly, the president then tried in vain to share a message from his @TeamTrump account. This was deleted and the account was suspended.

The official also said Trump was "scrambling to figure out what his options are," according to Politico.

In a now-deleted tweet, Trump said he'd been "negotiating with various other sites" and would have a big announcement soon. Trump also said that his team "look at the possibilities of building our own platform in the near future."

Parler, the 'free speech' platform that many thought Trump might join next, has been removed from Google's Play Store. Apple is expected to follow suit in removing the app.

Facebook has also "indefinitely" banned Trump from the website.

Trump's banishment from Twitter — the platform that has defined much of his presidency — was met with both outrage and glee online.

His critics celebrated his account being disabled, most notably Hillary Clinton.

Allies, however, called it "silencing" and "censorship."

While some have called the Twitter ban a First Amendment issue, the move does not violate that law or any others.

During the riot, Trump was calling senators to get them to continue to stop the certification of Biden as president.

I never thought that I would see the day when mobs breached the halls of congress and the president is supporting them.

It's become surreal.

We know that Trump has no bottom. They had to take it away from him. If he stays calm for a few months I could see them giving it back to him before too long, and then they could just watch him and see how he uses it again.

Never give it back, ban him for life because we know EXACTLY what he is going to do if he gets back on.

Why doesn't he just stroke out or why hasn't his head just exploded?  That would be great!

More fake news bullshit.

  • Trump went "ballistic" after his account was suspended, a senior administration official told Politico.

Remember when the media had to use identifiable sources? Seems that went out the window with this presidency. Now any made up, unnameable, unknowable, source is accepted and regurgitated by the media endlessly. Goebbels would be in awe of the US media.

Yeah, because pitching a fit over something really stupid and childish and acting like a total fuck head is totally out of character for Trump, just unbelievable.

Actually what I remember and is currently running on Fox is that they have never used facts to get in their way. 

You really need to get a new act, this one is old and worn.
