Not even 14 days, he only took 4. Trump has left the hospital, and of course he’s using the opportunity to downplay the pandemic as usual. It’s so predictable that it feels like a rewatched movie at this point. But not all people are stupid enough to believe him:
Hopefully that does make a change. From my part I’ll try to avoid posting about this coackroach any further or I’ll have to disinfect my blog.
And yes, he shoud have died.
This is so surreal that I couldn’t help but laugh when it happened. Turns out Twitter isn’t kidding on its censorship against those who wish death to Trump, and they seem to have applied a filter that automatically suspends accounts as soon as you attempt to talk about it, even if it’s about reporting on the situation and not participating in it.
The above image and the one below show what just happened when I tried to send my previous post to Twitter: my account got instantly suspended and didn’t even let me send the tweet.
I must clarify that it’s impossible for me to have done something else to get suspended because this is an account I had never used. I created it 2 months ago and left it laying there, I didn’t even have a single tweet, I never sent a message to anybody or followed anybody. I made the account solely to get an API key with the purpose of building a Twitter bot (which I haven’t started coding yet). There’s really no reason why Twitter should have suspended my account (though I can see how the fact that it’s relatively new made it easy prey of the automatic filters).
So it looks like Trump and his supporters can use Twitter to spread all kinds of misinformation and hateful messages, but if you speak against them you get suspended. It’s also ironic how I had mentioned that Twitter did nothing when I was being harassed in the past (with a different account), but they’re fast as lightning to suspend my account when I’ve literally done absolutely nothing. This is where the world has descended to in the current times.
Of course it was too good to be true. Twitter has come in to ruin the party, removing tweets of users hoping that Donald Trump dies of COVID-19 (the illness he’s largely responsible for spreading and that he has been adamant in downplaying), under the excuse that “tweets that wish or hope for death, serious bodily harm or fatal disease against anyone are not allowed and will need to be removed”:
But people haven’t taken long to notice the double standard of the move, because firstly, nobody is really “death-threatening” Trump; and secondly, the platform has been known for doing absolutely nothing to help other people who did suffer from persistent harassment and actual death threats, such as Ava DuVernay or the four women from the Democratic party known as “The Squad”.
I’ve myself suffered from harassment on the social network and I can confirm that Twitter’s support is the definition of useless and they never even bothered to reply to my reports, but they do jump instantly to defend that who can take them down, even when nobody is really threatening to harm him and it’s merely people joking around.
Entire hashtags are now gone after having dominated Twitter’s trending topics for the past 2 days, and have been replaced by an isolated #PrayForTrump. The media manipulators at work again.
Below are some screenshots I took of Twitter’s TTs on the wake of the news in the morning of October 2nd:

It’s so good to log into Netflix and be welcomed by this. The Dark Knight has returned to the catalog, after having been removed some time ago, apparently in order to move it to Warner’s own streaming service DC Universe (whose catalog is in turn being absorbed by Warner’s new predilect child HBO Max). It looks like Netflix still has better relations with Warner than with Disney despite all three being rivals now.
I extracted the background image from the banner and I leave it below. It’d be excellent as wallpaper if it was of bigger resolution (that’s the source file, I didn’t resize it or anything):
By the way, Dunkirk is also arriving to Netflix on October 12th:
Donald Trump has tested positive for COVID-19, and the world relishes on the news. “Karma” was trending on Twitter a few hours ago. “Nothing unites humans like a common enemy”, and humanity is now united under the flag of mocking the leader of the pandemic denialists. These thousands of deaths and the economical crash are, in good part, his fault and that of his followers. Sounds like the perfect comeback, but could that be too good to be true?
A Twitter user’s harmless “prediction” from 2 weeks ago shows how this seeming moment of triumph can be the facade for a dark ploy that’d only turn the table to his favor again. Of course the user was just joking, but still sounds oddly plausible, doesn’t it?
This video never fails to make me happy. The song is on Spotify:
Update 2022/01/07: The original video was removed by YouTube. Fortunately I had it saved and I’ve uploaded it directly to the blog. It was originally here: https://youtu.be/TIfAkOBMf5A
Si creías que no podía haber nadie más como Maruja, prepárate porque ese incidente en el Eurojuego tuvo una secuela, y la misma conductora se encontró increíblemente en la misma situación cuando otra concursante mayor también empezó a discutir al aire con su televisor. Una segunda parte tan buena como la original.
