Trump is spreading a murder conspiracy to the horror of a widower. Jack Dorsey's stance will cost him https://t.co/R2dj8VeSB9

The story is Trumps obvious mental deterioration/illnesses and how these tweets are symptoms.
He wants the deflection/wedge to be the story and you guys keep taking the bait.
Write about his obvious lack of mental capacity.

"These tweets are awful but [Trump] knows what they do, he knows what's going on, and beyond just appealing to his base, he's doing it because they're doing nothing about it, and he knows they will" – @karaswisher w/ @NicolleDWallace pic.twitter.com/wmDhpJ06Ie

For the first time ever, Twitter has applied a fact-check label to Trump's tweets.
It shouldn't have taken this long, it should be applied more widely, and tbh the tweets shouldn't even still be up, but it's … something. pic.twitter.com/9LlGYoQjvK

Twitter: Where you can falsely accuse someone of murder, but cannot spread falsities about mail-in voting. That is a bridge too far.

"Can you take the mask off I can’t hear you?” says President Trump to a reporter in the Rose Garden.
“I’ll just speak up,” says the reporter
“Because you want to be politically correct.” the president replies.

Do you know how to stop the WH shitshow? Stop showing up. Hand in your press passes tell them it's over. Don't cover it! They crave the attention even if it's negative. 100,000 + Americans have died and they are pushing propaganda? WTF?

Perspective: Biden wore a mask. Trump did not. Now a single accessory can define the presidency. https://t.co/2Epo9aZMw6

Biden just now, when asked why he apologizes when Trump says a ton of offensive things and never apologizes: “If I say something offensive, I should apologize.” I remember when this was the way normal adults thought about life.

I think it's possible that the handling of this means that there is no longer any conventionally good outcome for Boris Johnson. Keep Dom, piss off voters and MPs. Fire him, lose a man you'd already gone all-in on after Sabisky, Javid etc. https://t.co/E18Iutwq6E

‘He made those who struggled to keep to the rules feel like fools and has allowed many more to assume they can now flout them. The prime minister knows all this and has chosen to ignore it.’
