Rob Reiner: Trump Should be Banned from Twitter and Sitting in Prison
Leftists director calls on social media to remove the president
Reiner said Trump deserves to be “sitting in prison.”
As usual, Reiner unleashed his anti-Trump tirade calling for him to be imprisoned.
“If truth mattered Trump would be banned from Twitter, he would have been convicted after his Impeachment, and he would be sitting in prison. But alas, we’ll just have to vote him out," Reiner wrote.

"And we will,” the director added.
Reiner followed up with a more aggressive tweet:
“Donald Trump is a sociopath who can’t see beyond his empty soul,” he ranted.

Reiner joins a clique of Hollywood celebrities who cheered when Twitter fact-checked Trump.
“Since Trump is incapable of tweeting without lying, adios amigo,” the filmmaker wrote.
MASSIVE. Twitter says it will put a warning label on the Lies and Disinformation tweeted by Trump. Since Trump is incapable of tweeting without lying, adios amigo. And don’t let the door hit you on the way out.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) May 26, 2020
Trump will sign an executive order Thursday to take "big action" against social media companies' anti-conservative bias, according to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.“
"McEnany told reporters aboard Air Force One that the order is ‘pertaining to social media,’” Politico reported.
While no additional details have been shared on what the order will do, the move comes after the president threatened to crackdown on social media censorship of conservative voices ahead of the November elections.
The announcement has revived fears in Silicon Valley that the Trump administration will target a 24-year-old statute that protects the online companies from lawsuits.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responded to the growing backlash flowing Twitters' fact check on Trump.
Dorsey emphasized there was a 'difference' between Twitter and Facebook's misinformation policies.
“Fact check: there is someone ultimately accountable for our actions as a company, and that’s me,” Dorsey tweeted.
This does not make us an “arbiter of truth.” Our intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves. More transparency from us is critical so folks can clearly see the why behind our actions.— jack (@jack) May 28, 2020
“Please leave our employees out of this. We’ll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make.”
