Trial by Twitter

On Sunday I posted the video from former California governor (and movie Terminator) Arnold Schwartenegger. This video has totally gone viral.

The tweet has more than 1.1 million likes, which is better than Trump has ever done. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Trump did have one tweet that did better, with 1.9 million likes. However, that tweet was the announcement that he had contracted COVID-19, so we suspect that those likes weren’t coming from approving supporters.

This quote was published only a couple of hours ago, and as I write this, Schwartenegger’s tweet has already passed 1.2 million likes. Can we go for 2 million likes?

In addition, it was also posted by Schwartenegger to YouTube, and also posted by over a dozen news organizations, gaining millions of additional views and a third of a million likes (and that’s just the ones I could find).

    Dan, of course he is. McConnell is only interested in power, and Trump has cost the GOP the House of Representatives, the presidency, and finally the senate. The senate loss costs McConnell his power. And after the Capitol riot, Trump’s approval rating dropped like a rock.

    Once companies started pulling their donations, that was the end of it for Trump. You’ll get quite a few Republicans that still vote against impeachment or conviction, but leadership knows which side their bread is buttered on…

    As always, just follow the money.
