There Could Be A Way To Kick Donald Trump Off Twitter

Donald Trump tweeting

This is a tale of two American presidents and their use of Twitter. Well, it is not exactly a tale. But one thing is certain: one has the most liked tweet in the history of the micro-blogging site. The other? I think the word ‘divisive’ would do just fine in describing him.

You guessed right. They are Barrack Obama and his successor Donald Trump, who is at the centre of a plot by an ex-CIA agent. Nope, the plot isn’t the dark, sinister kind that we have come to ascribe to the spy agency, no thanks to Hollywood!

The ex-spy Valerie Plame Wilson is so miffed with the way Donald Trump uses Twitter so much that she opened a GoFundMe account with one thing in mind: buy Twitter and banish Trump to an equivalent of Hell. We can just say, Twitter Hell!

#BuyTwitter #BanTrump

Wilson opened the account on August 16 and hoped to raise $1 billion with which she can gain controlling shares of Twitter and thus have the power to ban Trump from using the social media platform.

Take note that Wilson is not irrationally mad at Donald Trump for defeating Hillary Clinton. Judging from the statement posted on the GoFundMe page, she has some serious axe to grind with 45.

“Donald Trump has done a lot of horrible things on Twitter. From emboldening white supremacists to promoting violence against journalists, his tweets damage the country and put people in harm’s way,” she said in the post.

“But threatening actual nuclear war with North Korea takes it to a dangerous new level.

“It’s time to shut him down. The bad news is Twitter has ignored growing calls to enforce their own community standards and delete Trump’s account. The good news is we can make that decision for them.”

So far, Wilson has been able to raise $84, 566. Still a long shot from her goal from saving us all from a nuclear holocaust. Till she buys Twitter, let’s just pray Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un won’t banish us to a holocaust hell. Can I get an amen?
