BREAKING: Trump Banned From Facebook “Indefinitely”

I definitely didn’t have this on my apocalypse bingo card. The Washington Post is reporting that Facebook has banned President Donald Trump from its platform “indefinitely”. Though a statement from CEO Mark Zuckerberg nuances that:

“We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great,” he wrote. “Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.

I am sorry, but much like the temporary Twitter ban from yesterday, this is too little too late. Trump has used social media to spread hate, racism, and disinformation for years. Social media platforms could have dealt with this clown years ago. But it took a massive act of violence before they did anything about him. That’s a #Fail. And this ban by Facebook isn’t really a ban that lasts “indefinitely”. It’s a two week ban. That’s not good enough and Facebook needs to do better.
