Twitter Files Part 4 Reveals Michelle Obama Pushed For Trump’s Ban

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

Part four of the Twitter files released by Michael Shellenberger on Saturday revealed that former First Lady Michelle Obama urged Twitter to ban President Donald Trump on January 7, 2020.  Following January 6 she wrote to Twitter, “Now is the time…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 technologies from being used by the nation’s leaders to fuel insurrection.”  Contrasting the 2020 BLM riots as “peaceful protests,” Obama wrote, “Seeing the gulf between the responses to yesterday’s riot and this summer’s peaceful protests and the larger movement for racial justice is so painful. It hurts.”
