WATCH: Mark Meadows Has a Meltdown Over Trump’s Facebook Ban
Mark Meadows was Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff for the last year of his term. He was serving in that position when the former President incited an insurrection on the United States Capitol.
While Trump was not impeached for his actions, there were repercussions. The 45th President was banned by nearly all social media sites including giants like Facebook and Twitter.On Tuesday, Facebook made the decision to keep Trump’s ban in place. This drew a furious reaction from his former Chief of Staff.
Meadows told Fox News, “It’s a sad day for America. It’s a sad day for Facebook because I can tell you a number of members of Congress are now looking at do they break up Facebook, do they make sure that they don’t have a monopoly?”
The whine fest continued, “[there are] two different standards: one for Donald Trump and one for a number of other people that are on their sites and suggesting that more nefarious things than what the [former] president has been accused of.”
Meadows closed, “So this is a sad day for America. But a sadder day for the Facebooks of the world who have actually enjoyed a very wild, wild west kind of regulatory environment. I can tell you that’s going to change.”
Fortunately for Facebook, the proposed Conservative replacements for the sites have been woefully inadequate. Mike Lindell’s social media site was a total disaster. And the site proposed by Trump himself has been widely mocked as being no better than a blog.
