Most of you know that today, Dotard is holding meetings about social media. He is barring the press and has invited some "controversial" elements, some that various reporters have suggested are white power types, anti-semites and anti-gay. But he did not invite Facebook, Google or Twitter.

Now Twitter is down.

Has the putsch started?

LOL

Looks like it was a meeting for the "alt-right" loonies

Claims of anti-conservative bias proved the prevailing theme, however, and Trump punctuated his remarks by hugging social media personalities and Trump backers Diamond and Silk and singling out for praise James O'Keefe, whose undercover sting outfit Project Veritas has released what critics say are selectively edited videos depicting organizations ranging from Google to Planned Parenthood as biased and corrupt.

Indeed, some of the most prominent far-right personalities who have been banned for spreading hoaxes or inciting violence were left off the guest list. That includes InfoWars founder Alex Jones, right-wing activist Laura Loomer, conservative writer Milo Yiannopoulos and Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes.

Political cartoonist Ben Garrison had his invitation to the summit rescinded after the White House was peppered with questions about one of his cartoons, which critics said played into longstanding anti-Semitic tropes about Jews controlling the government. Garrison wrote in an online missive that he was "disappointed" but blames the media, not the White House, for the decision. "I will continue to support our President," he concluded.
