Michelle Obama Calls On Big Tech to Permanently Ban Trump Over 'Monstrous Behavior'

Pressure mounts for president to be 'de-platformed' from the Internet

Michelle Obama wants Big Tech to permanently de-platform President Trump

Former First Lady Michelle Obama is calling on Big Tech companies to permanently ban President Donald Trump from their platforms.

The calls from Obama come as the president's opponents push for Trump to be de-platformed on the Internet to limit him from reaching his supporters.

The former first lady-turned-Democratic Party operative scolded social media companies for "enabling" President Trump's so-called "monstrous behavior," demanding that they permanently ban him.

In a Thursday statement, Obama denounced the rioting at the U.S. Capitol and then addressed Silicon Valley directly.

"I hurt for our country," Obama wrote.

"And I wish I had all the solutions to make things better."

"I wish I had the confidence that people who know better will act like it for more than a news cycle or two," Obama continued.

"All I know is that now is a time for true patriotism.

"Now is the time for those who voted for this president to see the reality of what they've supported-and publicly and forcefully rebuke him and the actions of that mob."

"Now is the time for Silicon Valley companies to stop enabling this monstrous behavior — and go even further than they have already by permanently banning this man from their platforms and putting in place policies to prevent their technology from being used by the nation's leaders to fuel insurrection."

Obama was referring to actions already taken by some social media companies to limit the president's ability to post his claims about the 2020 election, according to The Blaze.

On Wednesday, Twitter announced that they were suspending the president from his account for 12 hours over several tweets about the election.

Soon after, Facebook followed suit and suspended Trump from his account for 24 hours.

YouTube also took down a video the president posted where he told protesters and rioters to go home, but added his claims about the election.

Twitter said they would consider a permanent ban of the president and on Thursday Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the president would be locked out of his account for at least the duration of the transition period.

Obama also described her reaction to the rioting at the U.S. Capitol in her statement.

"Like all of you, I watched as a gang - organized, violent, and mad they'd lost an election - laid seige to the United States Capitol," she wrote.

"They set up gallows," she continued.

"They proudly waved the traitorous flag of the Confederacy through the halls.

"They desecrated the center of American government.

"The day was a fulfillment of the wishes of an infantile and unpatriotic president who can't handle the truth of his own failures.

"And the wreckage lays at the feet of a party and media apparatus that gleefully cheered him on, knowing full well the possibility of consequences like these," Obama added.

On Thursday the president condemned the rioting in a statement from White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany to the media.
