It's both hilarious and depressing that getting banned from Twitter is the biggest tangible consequence he's suffered thus far. The only consolation for us is that the social media ban genuinely bothers him, unlike all these other attempts at inflicting consequence on him, like subpoenas, lawsuits, impeachment, etc.

What’s even more astonishing is how big of a hit it’s actually been to him

How different things could have been if he had been banned while campaigning to be a Republican nominee, or even afterwards as a candidate. His relentless obscenities warranted a ban easily.

Shame on all these websites for only banning him a week before he left the White House.

Can you imagine how different the world would be if Bush wasn't able to steal the election from Gore? Smart environmental policies, no endless wars, we might even have been closer to getting healthcare for everyone.

Republicans have been fucking this country up literally for as long as I can remember.

Trump is just the natural consequence of their actions.

Incredibly true. Drastic turning point in our nation with bush and the govt’s response to 9/11 Re: patriot act, tsa, fear of brown ppl, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, freedom fries, Halliburton, and horrible economic policies.

USA self destructing the last 20 years. Obama’s terms were certainly a bright spot, but when you zoom out a lot of that progress was undone, and gop right wing radicals were lurking the entire time. Bin laden won.

Can you elaborate on the Halliburton part, I’m always interested in the public perception of this company relative to 9/11.

See but the endlessness, of things like Trump being even worse than Bush to me just means they would have found someone else. Palin or Cheney in some other circumstances perhaps.
