President Donald Trump shared a story on Friday from a well-known news satirical website, apparently in earnest, using the false report to expose Twitter’s handling of questionable allegations against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
The story the president tweeted early Friday morning was posted by The Babylon Bee – which touts itself online as “the world’s best satirical site” – and said Twitter had “shut down its entire social network” on Thursday to shut down the spreading negative news about Biden.
Trump appeared to take the report seriously when he tweeted it from his own account, writing: “Wow, this has never been done in history. This includes his very bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this? Draw more attention to Sleepy Joe and Big T. “
