    Pardon my language, but I cry “Bullpocky!!!!”. Twitter was actually quite mild when it suggested to “check the facts”, and if Trump’s tweets actually had any validity, one would think he’d welcome the suggestion to prove that. Trump and friends plaster misinformation all over the place, so if they REALLY wanted people to believe he’s saying something true, I would expect to see him to say “sure - go check it out.”. That he never does that certainly appears to prove he lies. Moving against Twitter and other social media platforms this way might be a move against the First Amendment. And it would be karma if it was turned against the spread of deliberate disinformation. Our Congressional representatives, House and Senate, need to pay attention to such moves, and act against authoritarian moves against our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the rule of law, and set party aside to defend those things, including from attacks from any quarter — including by the President.
