16 Twitter Reactions To Trumps Video To Rioters Saying “Go Home, We Love You”

Posted on Jan 6, 2021

From jokes to questioning Twitter itself.

However, before it was removed, the video was merely flagged by Twitter, which meant that it could not be liked, replied to, or retweeted (although quote tweets are still allowed), due to “a risk of violence.”

Of course, Twitter had thoughts. Some questioned Twitter’s decision:

⚠️ this Tweet can’t be replied to, Retweeted, or liked to due to a risk of violence. But you can share it if you add some bullshit commentary like “ay caramba” anyway you’re welcome

Trump has tweeted a video in which he lies that the “election was stolen from us” and lies that he won in “a landslide,” then tells the mob “but you have to go home now,” then calls the election “fraudulent,” then says we need “peace,” then calls the mob “very special.”

Trump earlier today ordered his mob to march to the Capitol. After their attack on the U.S. Capitol, he told them, ”We love you—you’re very special.”
His daughter just addressed them as “American Patriots.”
Please pay attention.
