So that White House “social summit” may not include Facebook or Twitter
Everything is terrible.
If you needed any more proof that Donald Trump’s supposed “Social Summit” was nothing more than a get-together of right-wingers wanting something to complain about, look no further than a new report from CNN.
Makes perfect sense not inviting the biggest social networks in the world to the event, right?
Most sane and logical people already knew the event was nothing more than a farce, but now, with this information, it has all but confirmed that Trump has no real intentions on learning and improving the admittedly terrible social experience.
Instead, this will be used as a nice, old-fashioned circle-jerk for right-wingers to exercise classic confirmation-bias while being surrounded by others who share the same sentiments. CNN sources back my opinion, stating the summit “would amount to a right-wing grievance session.”
Now, it should be noted that the White House hasn’t released its official list of those invited, so there is still the chance that the sources are incorrect and the big players will be invited. The White House has yet to comment on CNN’s report, but it will almost assuredly scream something about fake news and the like.
Everything is a joke.
