House of Cards Creator pleads with Twitter to delete Donald Trumps account



Beau Willimon, creator of Netflix’s political series House of Cards, countered Donald Trump’s Saturday Twitter rant with one of his own. “Today’s tantrum is just the latest example of why @realDonaldTrump & @Potus must be removed from @twitter,” Willimon began a 16-tweet argument.

The writer-producer was referring to Trump alleging over the social media platform that Barack Obama had his “‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower” before the election. “How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy,” the president tweeted from his personal account.

Since the president holds “a supreme and unique responsibility unlike any other user,” Willimon wrote that Trump’s tweets have “real and significant impact on the business of governance, world affairs and national security.” He continued, “President Trump has consistently made misleading claims, attacked the judiciary and threatened sovereign states, the press & public. His tweets recklessly bypass diplomatic channels without consultation from the State Department, [Intelligence Community] or the Pentagon.”

    I doubt they will delete his account because it violates his freedom of expeession. Twitter has gotten a lot of people in trouble and even fired from their job. He can get away with saying thing's because he is the president.
    Is this still revelant?
    • Well yeah of course. Some random Hollywood type certainly won't be listened to by twitter.

      Congress is slowly trying to encourage him toward more traditional methods of communication. His tweets do him very little good and certainly undermine him in many cases.

      ' I doubt they will delete his account because it violates his freedom of expeession.'
      Actually it doesn't at all, the 1st amendment only protects you from the government, it doesn't prevent private companies from saying, you've violated some of our tos and we're going to kick you out, and if you say he hasn't, they can change the TOS literally any time, and then his next tweet will violate it, and no he won't read it, because, no one reads the TOS.
      This explains it perfectly

      It should be interesting to see if he moves away from writing thing's on twitter. And if he listens to congress.

    Trump is accusing Obama of wiretapping him without proof, which if there actually was any proof and if this actually had happened (and anyone with more than two brain cells can be sure he's lying) he actually has the authority to just come out with it, which he didn't which means he's lying again
    • He is repeating what he heard on an extremist AM radio station.

      He get most of his tweets from Fox and friends.

      Trump refuses to take questions from the press and instead uses his twitter feed of a one way speech to congress as his only mediums.

      Everyone deserves a free voice but when the POTUS's only means of communication are 2am tweets it should give everyone pause.

      he's trying to distract from his numerous controversies and shifting the blame onto someone else, like he always does and it really doesn't seem to be working this time
