    In addition:

    1) Why is the POTUS using twitter? Often for most of day, to insult his perceived enemies and push a clear political narrative tailored to his base.

    2) Why is a "fact check" disclaimer even necessary? This is the POTUS a man of honesty and integrity, right? We aren't talking about some third rate right wing rag.

    3) What does it suggest about our country and "the leader of the free world", that his TWITTER feed needs to be fact checked! How will you spin this Jorge? Hell conservative right wing posters Michelle Malkin, Michael Johns, John Boehner, RedState.com don't have disclaimers do they? Hmmmm quite a conundrum.

    I know you don't truly understand the nature of a fact and that yours have been frequently checked and disproven, sop why can't we do that with the president?
    It is his choice to make twitter a platform for his divisive rhetoric. It should be our choice to call it out.

    Fact- Much like the president, you often hide from responding to your facts being refuted or you complain to other powers that be to get your way.

    What are you talking about?

    Comey's bombshell days before the election sealed Hillary's fate. People looking for an excuse, any excuse NOT to vote or to vote for her had their out.

    WTF are you talking about?

    Trump retweeted and liked someone calling HRC a "skank". He has accused a man of murder with no grounds.
    he has flat out lied.

    Again, you choose to defend a misogynistic, racist, homophobe and put him beyond reproach.
    Never have I seen another politician R or D, do what he's doing. They can get nasty but they call each other out and that's how it goes.

    This dude is a moron of epic proportions.


    If Donnie wants to spout off on twitter, should people be allowed to call him on his BS?

    Free speech huh?

    Another fun fact for you Jorge: Trump brags about getting Republicans elected. Research suggests his endorsements in 2018 cost his party 15 seats ⁠— 11 in the House and four in the Senate. https://www.washingtonpost.com/

    Trump has not met a conspiracy theory he won't endorse. Particularly if it disparages the D's and supports him or his policy in some manner.

    Fact checking by social media companies is "Silicon Valley" interfering with the elections.?

    Our country is ****ed.

    How the hell can questioning a tweet as factual, be "un-American"?
    Just sitting back and believing it's fact because the president said it is, seems far more un-American.
    Not calling BS on some stupid crap he says, because the president gets his feelings hurt, is un-American

    When it’s only one particular person who has a “fact check” option on his tweets it is bs . If anything that should be an standard on all tweets for everyone who uses twitter .

    Saw this online and it brought up all those guys with their Semi auto rifles standing up for their ''freedoms'' a few weeks ago.

    I'm pro fire arms, that's not what this post is about for me. Before anyone goes there.

    I don't think he's a bust. I think he just needs the right motivation to pick himself up & play harder.

    Not really Jorge. Not many people have the following or the influence. I would say the POTUS should be held to a slightly higher standard then Joe Blow with his 13 followers. Although if the bar established by Trump continues it's current descant who knows what lies ahead on the platform!

    I love the lady in Central Park being upset that her life is ruined after trying to get a black man arrested for, well, being black. She actually thought out what she would say to the cops and had that dude not had a phone to capture all of it, he would have been in jail and his life, ruined.

    But this entitled psycho bish, is upset because people think she sucks balls and her life is ruined.

    You tried to ruin another person's life. It ended up with your life being ruined.
    If you can't do the time, don't do the crime

    Sure. But you know that they will be spending all their time fact checking the POTUS because he lies about fact more frequently than a 3 year old who broke a lamp and ate all the cookies.

    People can fact check themselves for all tweets. I think all politicians should have the fact check concept held to them.
    That way poor donnie won't get his feelings hurt.

    I have zero problem with the company who is providing a service, making it clear when a politician or any person of great influence tweets, something that may be a lie.
