The Politico Playbook on what’s DRIVING THE DAY:
ADMIT IT. YOU MISS IT ALREADY. The shock, faux outrage, the buffoonery … and especially the guilty pleasure of it all. All gone. Reactions ran from “too little too late” to “Orwellian.”
But whether the decision by Twitter’s hirsute guru to lower the virtual guillotine on @realDonaldTrump late Friday was driven by the shift in political winds, pangs of conscience, or a simple desire to prepare the world for the ennui that promises to descend on politics come January 21, the de-platforming effectively ends the Trump presidency. And by the looks of it, 45 might not even be able to “Parler” either.
The shock, faux outrage, the buffoonery, the fomenting of a deadly attack on Congress that nearly got the Vice President and Speaker of the House lynched — tee hee!
The Trump era was, among many other things, a massive failure by the elite media.
