Posted on 01/03/2018 7:28:33 AM PST by Sir Napsalot
CNN media reporter Brian Stelter told host Anderson Cooper Tuesday night he asked Twitter if President Trump's tweet about North Korea and the "nuclear button" was a "violation" of the social media platform's terms of service due to the threat of violence. In the tweet, Trump wrote he also has a nuclear button, "but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"
Stelter also said Trump's tweet on the "nuclear button" and another one about "awards" for the "most dishonest & corrupt media" have raised questions about Trump's "mental health and fitness."
The CNNer summed up the tweets as "madness."
"We should start to call it that, shouldn't we?" Stelter said on behalf of the media. "When President Trump was inaugurated last January, some writers, some columnists like Andrew Sullivan started right away to raise concerns about the president's mental health, about his fitness for office. In the months that followed, we saw Republican Senators like Jeff Flake bring this up, try to ask about his fitness for office. Bob Corker, another name that comes to mind.
"I think we can apply a test to his 16 tweets," Stelter declared. "The test would be: if this were the leader of Germany or China or Brazil, what would we say? How would we cover these tweets? We would say these are the messages from a person who is not well, from a leader who is not fit for office.".......
"In fact, I've asked Twitter spokesman, does this violate Twitter's terms of service, making this kind of threat toward North Korea?" he told Cooper. ......
"These are the kinds of questions social media companies now have to ask themselves," Stelter added.

These silly media type think they can get back to the good old days of themselves exclusively control the information flow. Not Any More!
Take away Trump's tweeter account, and see what happens next! ........
They desperately want him to get off twitter.
He sets the agenda when he does.
And they think it’s their job to do that.
Did smokin’ dope on live TV violate any rules? After all kids were watching and dope is still a federal crime.
Ban Trump and you’ll die a quick death ,Twitter ,LOL
It’s not a threat!
Notice how the left changes things done by normal people. A boast is changed to a “threat.”
A slip of the tongue is hanged to a “slur.”
Love how he gets free rent in their heads 24/7.
I love Trumps Tweaker account. Boy can he tweak’em!
CNN is bored because their ratings are so low
So Brian Stelter dropped a dime on Trump to the Twitter Police? When did Twitter get police powers? Is twitter going to arrest Trump and send him to Twitter jail? Oh the Humanity!!!!
Maybe this pot head thinks Twitter will cancel Trump’s account. That would be good for business, now wouldn’t it.
Somebody thaw that stiff out. He’s been out in the cold to long.
Specifically, they think it is their job to *control* what the American people what to think.
Brian Stelter: Did Trump’s North Korea ‘Button’ Tweet Violate Twitter’s Terms Of Service?...
DP0622: Does my telling Brian Stelter to go #### his mother violate the terms of FR?
If it does, I apologize.
That fruitcake POS.
Amazing isn’t it?
Guess who looks mentally unfit when they obsess over tiny details of someone’s conduct and try to apply larger meanings to them?
We should be glad that GayNN has made themselves largely unwatchable, even for amusement factor. They are like Prissy Crissy at MSDNC. The only proper response is to laugh and change the channel.
I wonder if this Tella-Tubby would be saying the same thing about Hillary as she nods, convulses, blinks uncontrollably, seizes and faints off and on with regularity. Hillary Clinton could go into a tourette fit followed by a Grand Mal seizure and this guy would announce the sun was in her eyes.

The same way they change murdering babies into “choice,” or racism into “affirmative action” or “socialist” into “progressive” or homosexuality into “alternative lifestyle.”
And even when they’re NOT corrupting the language, they make sure to influence people’s perception of it by the tone they use. If they mention President Trump, they sound as if they’ve just stepped in a pile of dog poo - but when they used to report on Obama, they’d sound as if they were in the midst of an orgasm (particularly, but not exclusively limited to the females - oh, I’m sorry, back when there WERE such things as two sexes. Sometimes I forget we’re living in a new, wonderful liberal world /s).
.. Oh, yes... and how could I forget, illegal aliens are now “dreamers.”
I guess Stelter thinks that is an impeachable offense?
Every Prog behaves the same.
