Don Jr’s home video of the family and others enjoying watching the DC events must have seemed like a cool idea at the time, but it could come back to haunt him.

Saw they'd shut him down on shopify, which was pretty com.

That Twitter ban will probably annoy him more than anything else, though Cheesy

Melania probably having a lie down while the Trump firm get jiggy, and wishing she could wake up and it be Jan 20th already.

'At this point, Mexico is considering paying for the wall'

Internet is undefeated, and some comments are worth reading Cheesy

This is well done, especially from 7m 50s onwards.

Trump used the name John Barron several times in the 80/90s to pretend not to be himself.

I'm not sure exactly why but the permanent suspension of Trump's Facebook & Twitter accounts makes me slightly uncomfortable.

How many more chances does he get?

It has been said many times that he has breached Twitter rules and was only getting an exemption because of his position.   Most people tweeting the same would have been long gone.  My slight discomfort didn't last long anyway.

It should make you feel uncomfortable. This is a bad path to go down.

well yeah, agreed - I guess one of the problems with the way the world is in 2021 is that in certain industries/sectors, certain companies are so powerful and have such a monopoly that they can effectively stop or ban things and sometimes have more direct power than legislators themselves. For example Visa and Mastercard have essentially stopped or vastly altered certain industries overnight by banning payments from them. Poker and online gambling is a prime example of this. Facebook and Twitter have crushed the competition and so they now have vast power. So far they haven't done too much with it in terms of influencing world events - being more concerned with collecting and monetising our data but it could come for sure...

He's probably loving it, once someone explains how good it will be for him starting his own network & s/media platform.

Should have just let him crack on, and eventually get sectioned Cheesy

Surely it was the Online Poker Sites (under instruction from the UKGC) who stopped this, not Visa or Mastercard?
