Twitter users slam platform for not banning Iran’s ayatollah
House Republicans poised to vote on Liz Cheney’s future
Students for Trump co-founder sentenced to prison for posing as lawyer
Defiant Cheney lays out case ahead of vote to oust her from GOP leadership
Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday puzzled out a new way to retweet his supporters despite his ban from Twitter — by distributing screenshots to his large email list.
Fox News host Sean Hannity received the honor in a message titled, “ICYMI: Sean Hannity Tweet.”
Hannity attacked Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who was ousted from her No. 3 House leadership spot Wednesday morning as a consequence of her continued focus on criticizing Trump.
“@LizCheney, hope your [sic] enjoying being embraced & praised by Dems and media mob, the same people that called your dad a ‘War Criminal’, convicted Scooter Libby & tried to destroy your father over his work w/ Halliburton. Counting the days until your new friends return to normal,” the tweet attributed to Hannity said.
The message appears to have been deleted from Twitter after it was posted.
The RT was distributed by Trump’s Save America PAC, which released many other statements cheering Cheney’s downfall. Trump repeatedly slammed her as a “warmonger” and wrote Wednesday, “Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being.”
Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump one week after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, which disrupted certification of President Biden’s victory. He was acquitted of inciting an insurrection by the Senate when seven Republicans voted for conviction — not enough for a two-thirds vote, as is required.
It was not clear from Trump’s screenshot when Hannity tweeted the message or why it is no longer visible on Twitter.
Twitter claimed it permanently banned Trump from his preferred communication platform “due to the risk of further incitement of violence” after the Capitol riot. Facebook has indefinitely suspended his account.
The ex-president this month launched a dedicated website page to host his statements. The site can be shared on social media, which allows Trump to circumvent the social media bans if his supporters post the statements.
