Pelosi Losses Battle: Social Media Giants Refuse To Censor Embarrassing Video
Facebook and Twitter have told Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi that they will not censor a video that her office requested be scrubbed from the internet.
Pelosi was attempting to have a video removed from all social media platforms because it shows her ripping up the President’s SOTU speech as the President honors each guest. The five minute video, which features the words “POWERFUL AMERICAN STORIES RIPPED TO SHREDS BY NANCY PELOSI” was tweeted by the President on Thursday. The video is edited and shows Pelosi ripping up the speech every time the President introduced one of his guests. Of course, in reality, Pelosi ripped the speech at the conclusion of President Trump speaking.
Pelosi’s office demanded social media giants take the video down because it claims the video is deceitful.
“The American people know that the President has no qualms about lying to them – but it is a shame to see Twitter and Facebook, sources of news for millions, do the same,” Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s chief of staff, said on Twitter. “The latest fake video of Speaker Pelosi is deliberately designed to mislead and lie to the American people, and every day that these platforms refuse to take it down is another reminder that they care more about their shareholders’ interests than the public’s interests.”
You would think a liberal like Pelosi would know art when they see it. Pelosi is embarrassed because she acted like a clown during the State of the Union speech and now she is trying to scrub the internet of her looking like a fool.
Tim Murtaugh, a Trump campaign spokesman, said: “If Nancy Pelosi fears images of her ripping up the speech, perhaps she shouldn’t have ripped up the speech.” The campaign also said this video was an obvious parody.
Pelosi’s calls for the video to be removed is scary and who knows how long before Facebook and Twitter completely cave to the Democrat party.
