    *Actually* Great News: Trump Being Funny Again!

    Lately, I have been wearing my red Make Trump Funny Again trucker cap whenever I'm out in public, metaphorically speaking.

    Well, finally he made a decent Tweet!

    And then Twitter banned/blocked the Tweet in the US! Ha, ha: get a VPN, you non-expatriot American Losers!

    But, out of the goodness of my heart, I will post it for you anyway. Let's see if Youtube bans it, too. (My guess: Yes. 12 hours or less.)

    When they do, let's keep posting new copies, eh? Can't stop the signal.

    And yes, I did question whether I wanted to post anything so positive towards Trump right now while he appears to be being such a Pathetic Virgin Loser. But, everybody needs a laugh.

    So Happy Saturday, fam.

    Because they(Twitter) censored the President of the USA, under the guise of a copyright infraction, a new video was produced and then he pinned it to his twitter account.
    Now people will be curious to see what was taken down......

    Here it is

    Even his critics would admit that MAGA brings humor and entertainment to even boring parts of politics. That's free value-add that MAGA supporters certainly appreciate.

    R.E.M. Copyright Complaint Gets Trump Tweet Axed by Twitter

    Apparently even Donald Trump is not immune to copyright takedowns. On Friday, the president tweeted a mocking video playing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts” over Democrats’ reaction to the State of the Union—originally created by some dude using the pseudonym “Carpe Donktum” and best known for winning an Infowars meme contest. By early Saturday ET, CNBC reported, the video was taken down after R.E.M. publisher Universal Music Publishing Group, as well as bassist Mike Mills, complained.

    Yes, that’s right. Trump and R.E.M. got in a fight and R.E.M. won.

    By late Friday, CNBC wrote, Twitter users attempting to play the clip saw a message stating, “This video has been removed in response to a report from the copyright holder.” The tweet itself (which the president had pinned to the top of his feed) appears to have been deleted at some point thereafter.

    As CNBC wrote, this is not the first time the president has had a dispute with a copyright holder—he’s previously had The Rolling Stones complain about his use of their music at campaign rallies, as well as ripped off Game of Thrones’s signature catchphrase (and font):

    Trump has drawn criticism for using copyrighted content before: The Rolling Stones’ “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” was often used at the end of Trump campaign rallies and has been used at Trump events since he became president. The band urged Trump to stop using the song, to no avail.

    In November, Trump tweeted an image of himself featuring the text overlay “Sanctions are coming,” which HBO took as a clear reference to its “Game of Thrones” series. HBO said at the time that they “would prefer our trademark not be misappropriated for political purposes,” but the president’s tweet was not taken down.
    Nor is this the first time the president has tweeted a video that the platform decided to take down. After Trump retweeted several anti-Muslim tweets from the fringe, far-right UK political organization Britain First, Twitter suspended the group’s Twitter account, automatically removing the videos from the president’s feed. Facebook also took down a racist Trump campaign ad in late 2018.

    “Carpe Donktum” responded on Twitter by complaining about platforms monetizing or removing their content, as well as linking to another tweet that has also since been removed. They also tweeted another copy of the video.

    While telling the president to go shove it is all well and good, the proliferation of copyright takedown requests on major web platforms has become a bitter issue in recent years. Platforms have bent over backwards to avoid copyright infringement lawsuits, resulting in what critics say is significant overreach.

    As BuzzFeed News recently reported, takedown demands can be used to remove embarrassing content, and a recent piece in the Verge highlighted how YouTube’s highly automated copyright claim system can be used to harass enemies or serve as a vehicle for extortion attempts. In many cases, platforms have opted to remove even content that falls under lawful, fair use categories rather than risk going to court.

    Twitter, whose glacial approach to content moderation is so muddled and vague that its CEO Jack Dorsey recently committed only to having a “talk” if Trump ordered his followers to kill journalists, seemed to have no problem cutting through all the red tape to comply with a copyright takedown.

    In 1932, FDR became the first presidential candidate to use a pre-existing popular tune for a campaign when he embraced "Happy Days Are Here Again" for his White House bid. It was a move that set future politicians on a collision course with the artists whose songs they adopted.

    Oh, I disagree. He has not, however, been living up to his potential on this front for the past few months.

    I guess I assume the press conferences are still funny, but I don’t have time to listen to all those.
