Trump is preparing to sign an executive order Thursday aimed at curbing liability protections for social media companies, two days after he lashed out at Twitter for applying fact checks to two of his tweets.
The proposed order would direct executive branch agencies including the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Trade Commission to study whether they can place new rules on the companies — though experts expressed doubts much could be done without an act of Congress.
A similar executive order was previously considered by the administration but shelved over concerns it couldn’t pass legal muster and that it violated conservative principles on deregulation and free speech.
Over 100K dead Americans, unemployment through the roof, businesses shuttering for good, and the Orange Buffoon chooses to go after social media platforms for fact checking his lying ass:
Besides spreading conspiracy theories about Morning Joe and pissing off the husband of Lori Klausutis, Timothy Klausutis, Trump retweets some wing nut’s claim that ‘the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat.’ But dog forbid, Twitter fact checks him!
“Be afraid, social media. Be very afraid!” 😂😂😂
