CNN Reports that Donald Trump blocks people on Twitter if they insult him. I understand his reaction, as I have blocked a few incendiary people myself.
But then I am not President. I am not responsible for the defense of our nation and crucial decisions every day. I’m pretty busy for a person my age, but I confess I don’t have time to read every tweet directed at me.
Trump apparently has plenty of free time, even though he has 32 million followers.
“(CNN)Tweeting about ice cream or sending a GIF of the Pope doesn’t seem particularly momentous.
“But as some Twitter users are finding out, it doesn’t take much to be shut out by President Donald Trump.

“@realDonaldTrump I heard #covfefe is a new flavor from Ben & Jerry’s. But it’s mostly just nuts!,” Szczerba tweeted at the President.”
He was blocked by Trump.
There is now a hashtag for people who were #blockedbytrump
WIRED magazine posted a running list of people blocked by Trump. It includes the novelist Stephen King, who said, laughing, “I may have to kill myself.”
