Oh, how sad 🙁

U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday unblocked some additional Twitter users after a federal judge in May said preventing people from following him violated individuals constitutional rights.

U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald in Manhattan ruled on May 23 that comments on the president’s account, and those of other government officials, were public forums and that blocking Twitter Inc users for their views violated their right to free speech under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University on August 10 sent the Justice Department a list of 41 accounts that had remained blocked from Trump’s @RealDonaldTrump account. The seven users who filed suit had their accounts unblocked in June.

The 41 blocked users include a film producer, screenwriter, photographer and author who had criticized President Trump or his policies. At least 20 of those individuals said on Twitter that Trump had unblocked them on Tuesday.

The 41 users were not a comprehensive list of those blocked by Trump. Rosie O’Donnell, a comedian, said on Twitter late Tuesday that she remained blocked.

Jesus, what a sad and petty little man.

    Deepfakes: Here’s how to detect fake online political videos with one simple tell… in the blink of an eye

    A new form of misinformation is poised to spread through online communities as the 2018 midterm election campaigns heat up. Called “deepfakes” after the pseudonymous online account that popularized the technique – which may have chosen its name because the process uses a technical method called “deep learning” – these fake videos look very realistic.

    So far, people have used deepfake videos in pornography and satire to make it appear that famous people are doing things they wouldn’t normally. But it’s almost certain deepfakes will appear during the campaign season, purporting to depict candidates saying things or going places the real candidate wouldn’t.

    “del Percio painted a “frightening” picture for Trump, since so many of his lines of defense are vacant. “It’s not just in the White house Counsel’s office. It’s all throughout the government,” adding that “this administration is running at 50% at best.” ” “I think he’ll care if the Democrats take over the House and all of a sudden the Intel committee is headed by a Democrat and they bring back everyone else for an interview, it will be a much different White House response.” “If the Democrats do not take back the House, Donald Trump is — we think he’s unleashed now, I can’t even imagine what he’ll do.”” FEAR NOT!

    Marble mouth
    “Trump has come to resent him for other reasons, griping to aides and lawmakers that the attorney general doesn’t have the Ivy League pedigree the president prefers, that he can’t stand his Southern accent and that Sessions isn’t a capable defender of the president on television — in part because he “talks like he has marbles in his mouth,” the president has told aides.”

    What’s going on at @CNN is happening, to different degrees, at other networks – with @NBCNews being the worst. The good news is that Andy Lack(y) is about to be fired(?) for incompetence, and much worse. When Lester Holt got caught fudging my tape on Russia, they were hurt badly!

      “President Donald Trump unleashed a furious attack on the media yet again Thursday morning, urging CNN to fire its president, Jeff Zucker, and accusing NBC News anchorman Lester Holt of “fudging” an interview with him. “What’s going on at CNN is happening, to different degrees, at other networks—with NBC News being the worst,” the president wrote. “The good news is that Andy Lack(y) is about to be fired(?) for incompetence, and much worse. When Lester Holt got caught fudging my tape on Russia, they were hurt badly!” In a shockingly candid interview last May, Trump flatly admitted to Holt that “the Russia thing” was on his mind when he fired former FBI Director James Comey—an admission that has fueled charges he obstructed justice for investigators in the Russia election interference probe. The president provided no reason for why he believes the interview was “fudged.” Elsewhere in his tweetstorm, Trump strongly denied reports that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner “pushed out” the outgoing White House lawyer Don McGhan, claiming the reports were “so wrong!””

    “Racism and authoritarianism (and sexism) are closely related values and behaviors. In combination with a fear that white people are somehow losing power as a group in America — a claim not supported by any substantive and correct evidence — a state of collective narcissism exists for Trump’s voters and other supporters.”

    The weak ugly spineless lying coward should resign today. He is exposed in his reality and death of his alt right nation. The useful idiot to the Russians has failed yet again. There is no hope for the dotard. He should not fear witches but GHOST of past presidents in the white house stirring. They come out of the walls and woodwork to haunt mr and mrs trump for their lies and spies. Trump should get out today and resign. Its over. The scam is over. Who will make the movie, direct it and produce it?

    McCains 106 yr old mom will be at his funeral. But trump and palin will not. Senator McCain and family do not want lousy actors and pathetic liars there. So glad McCain made up for some mistakes and regrets in his finally salute to America. Cut the pork out, and he will follow um to the gates of hell.

    Trump Has Changed How Teens View the News
    Young people can see the president’s tweets as jokes, but they still often share his negative feelings about the press.

    …There is increasing evidence that this skepticism, exacerbated by the president’s relentless attacks, is trickling down to the next generation of voters. A 2017 report on a series of focus groups with 52 people between the ages of 14 and 24, conducted by Data & Society and the Knight Foundation, found that many young Americans believe the news is biased and are skeptical of its accuracy. “There was no assumption that the news would convey the truth or would be worthy of their trust,” the study reported.

    Teenagers, in particular, appear to be increasingly questioning the credibility and value of traditional media organizations. In interviews with The Atlantic, teens expressed great skepticism about the accuracy of the mainstream media, reiterated Trump’s biased characterization of many news sources, and said the president’s outrageous tweets have become so much a part of everyday life that they’ve morphed into catchphrases.

    “Trump and Madoff are lying, thieving, soulless luxo-thugs for whom chasing the almighty dollar and lying practically every minute of every day was their reason for being.

    They even got involved in their scams the same way: “I’m the king of debt!” “Sound familiar? Madoff learned he could rake in the bucks by lying his head off to investors. Trump was learning he could gain political currency by lying about everything from Obama’s birthplace to the evils of immigration.” “Sam Nunberg, have told interviewers that Trump never expected to win his race for president, figuring it was another exercise in expanding his brand. He’d build up his profile and use his fame to expand his business.” KEEP LYING”

    He’s the last “grown-up in the room.” “Trump chose him to be defense secretary, in large part, because of his supposed nickname, “Mad Dog.” Once in office, he was clearly surprised that Mattis—a retired Marine four-star general and combat commander—opposed torture and resisted efforts to start new wars.” “If Mattis leaves, whether on his own or on Trump’s orders, the Cabinet will consist entirely of political lackeys or manipulators.
    Sen. Lindsey Graham is rumored to yearn for the job—which may explain his recent turnaround on Trump’s suitability for public office”
