Rich Welsh| Opinion| Twitter confirmed the social media company locked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter out of her account for a brief time on account of a tweet she posted about Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) that the company said amounted to an endorsement of violence.
“The account owner was temporarily locked out for violating the Twitter rules against glorification of violence,” a Twitter spokesperson said on Tuesday.
Christine Pelosi tweeted Sunday that the animal who attacked the Kentucky senator in 2018 was “right” for doing so.
It looks like the sour apple doesn’t call far from that tree.
“We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse, no matter what. No matter what. We know what has to be done. We know you have to— you’re tired of hearing the phrase, you got to flatten that curve where it’s going up like this, people getting it, and then it comes down. We got to flatten that curve, and we got to make sure that once, in fact, we have this under control, it doesn’t come back. So we should be focusing on getting all the help necessary in terms of testing, in terms of access to the gear that our first responders, our doctors, our nurses need in treating people.”
“We should be getting extra beds, hospital beds in the major cities around the country, in the rule areas. I have a map here. You can’t see it. A map here from the docs that sent it to me. There’s a number of areas in the middle of the country and up north where, in fact, there are no ICU units. We have to get help there. We should be focusing on surging data, surging equipment, surging testing, surging all this information, and all this capability around the country. That’s the first and foremost thing we should be doing instead of waiting around.”
