Following the January 6th insurrection, most social media platforms removed Donald Trump from their services. It’s not like he’s cut off from communicating with his followers. He constantly calls into Fox News and anytime he puts out a press release the media is all over it.
Trump, however, is still banned from Facebook. He tried this week to get around the ban by doing an interview on Lara Trump’s page. The website, though, said they would not allow the president’s daughter-in-law to post it. Sean Hannity lamented the decision during his Tuesday night show declaring that Conservatives are not wanted there.
Former Bush spokesperson Ari Fleisher told the host, “This censorship is… one of the reasons we are splitting as a society. Are conservatives supposed to start all their own conservative media and ban Biden and Obama’s voice? Is that the America Facebook wants? This is going in every possible wrong direction. It’s anti-democratic, anti-intellectual, anti-history.”
Hannity then whined, “So now Dan Scavino, who works for President Trump, just because you work for President Trump, you can’t post on Facebook. Why is anybody on Facebook anymore that is a Conservative. It’s time to leave, we’re not wanted there.”
Fox News contributor Joe Concha then asked, “What did he say during that interview with Lara Trump that is so offensive that you have to hide this from the sensitivities of the people that are on Facebook.”
