As President Donald Trump’s anger at Twitter escalates, his so-called solution, should he really obtain it, would almost certainly blow up in his face.
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, the part of the law that Trump wants to change, is what’s been protecting him and his social-media posts.
It’s the reason Twitter and Facebook can allow him to tweet whatever he wants, from birther-conspiracy nonsense when he was a private citizen to recent erroneous information about mail-in ballots and voter fraud.
Here’s what Section 230 says: “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” (47 U.S.C. § 230.)
That means internet sites that show content created by other people – for example, social-media posts – are not to be considered the publishers of that material.
30 years ago, five young black men were wrongly convicted of rape – and how the charge against them was led by a real estate mogul who would become president
So what is your solution to the severe bias of Twitter and FB?
In a companion fact-check, we looked at Trump’s claim that Blumenthal "lied" about his Vietnam service. (Mostly True.) Here, we look at the rest of Trump’s words, the ones about Da Nang and crying.
Trump is wrong that Blumenthal spun heroic war stories, and cried when he was called out for it.

I'm sorry that everything in your world is about Orange Man Bad.
And that's all the time I am wasting in this thread.
Have a nice day.

Take note folks. They'll mostly attack the OP. No dispute on the facts. The typical playbook.
