Social Media Summit Day: Donald Trump Slams Tech Companies, Mocks Elizabeth Warren’s Appearance, Calls Himself A Great Looking Stable Genius
With his “White House Social Media Summit” just hours away, President Donald Trump is pulling out the usual roster of twitter bugaboos, amping up the rhetoric, joking about staying in office beyond his term, and crudely insulting the physical appearance of Elizabeth Warren (and no, he didn’t neglect his stand-by racist nickname for her).
All the while calling himself “so great looking and smart, a true Stable Genius!”
As the Jeffrey Epstein-Alexander Acosta scandal continues apace, Trump passed the morning all but outright begging for distraction, threatening social media companies while also praising them, calling Warren “a very nervous and skinny version of Pocahontas,” and trying hard to make the Alfred E. Neuman nickname stick for Pete Buttigieg.
While the White House has not released a list of the summit invitees, some of the reported or self-identified guests are Qanon conspiracy theorist Bill Mitchell and Tim Pool, the YouTube personality claimed that Seth Rich leaked hacked emails to WikiLeaks. Right-wing commentator Ali Alexander, who recently questioned Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris’ ethnicity, reportedly has been invited; Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk; James O’Keefe; and right-wing meme creator “Carpe Donktum.”
Facebook, Twitter and Google were not invited. The summit come after Trump and the social media influencers he follows have complained that they are consistently marginalized on the major social media sites. Twitter recently announced that disclaimers would be attached to tweets from world leaders that violate the site’s community standards rules. More recently, a New York appellate court upheld an earlier decision that Trump violated the First Amendment by blocking Twitter users.
Here are Trump’s summit-related tweets, and a sampling of responses from news organizations and others:
