Discworld - Death tapdanced

Donald and Twitter

So, I woke up this morning to the news that DJT plans some sort of executive action against social media companies because Twitter had the gall to fact check two of his tweets. This, of course, had him stamping his feet like a two-year-old having a tantrum.

If you didn't already think we're living in a "Twilight Zone" episode, this should put any doubts to rest. See: "It's a Good Life" (air date 1961) with Billy Mumy as the little boy who thinks anyone who displeases him into the cornfield.... Trump, I'm sure, must wish he could do the same thing.

The episode was based on a short story of the same name by Jerome Bixby. Worth reading or watching.
