Facebook finally removes a Trump post

Donald Trump is a geyser of misinformation, and normally Facebook is only too happy to funnel that fount of fucknuttery through a fire hose and hit America in the blessed nethers with it. But finally — finally — they’re doing something about his rampant dishonesty.

Facebook says it has removed a Trump-shared post featuring a clip of a Fox News interview in which the pr*sident spreads misinformation (you don’t say!) about COVID-19. This is the first time Facebook has removed anything of Trump’s.

The Washington Post:

“This video includes false claims that a group of people is immune from COVID-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful COVID misinformation,” said Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone.

In the removed video, president Trump can be heard in a phone interview saying schools should open. He goes on to say, “If you look at children, children are almost — and I would almost say definitely — but almost immune from this disease,” and that they have stronger immune systems.
While many children have had milder symptoms from the virus, researchers have found they are still able to catch and spread it to other people, including adults at home and in school settings, such as teachers.

Hopefully this is a harbinger of things to come. Now if only I could remove Trump from my head. Someone has to have developed that technology by now, right?

I wonder if Vegas is accepting bets on which vein and/or artery Trump will pop after he reads about this. I’ll put down 10 bucks on the carotid.
