Twitter has been very good to Donald Trump. The president was an early user of the website and built a huge tranche of supporters who helped him win the 2016 election. The website has also refused to remove Trump from the website despite his constant violations of the service’s terms and conditions.
Still, the crew at Fox News is angered by the fact that the website has begun to fact check Trump’s tweets. And though there are really no other options, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade thinks that the President should quit the website and take his missives somewhere else.
Kilmeade began his rant by asking, “Why do you patronize a big tech company like this, when they continue to show a lack of respect for you. And the president should start. The president should take his followers somewhere else, that would be a tweetstorm.”
Matt Walsh, who was a guest on Tuesday’s show also had thought’s on Kilmeade’s idea. The Daily Wire writer responded, “Yeah, I think so. But the problem is that Facebook and Twitter, you’re talking about multi, multi-billion dollar companies. And so it’s not just as simple as making another Twitter or making another Facebook. They do have a monopoly right now. And so we have to contend with that.”
“Myspace was big at one point too,” said Kilmeade.
