Rep. Matt Gaetz Mocked For Caring More About Twitter Bans Than Insurrection

On Monday — after Twitter permanently banned President Donald Trump’s account, @RealDonald Trump, for inciting violence — the Florida congressman falsely suggested the social media platform’s terms of services violate the First Amendment.

“We cannot live in a world where Twitter’s terms of service are more important than the terms in our Constitution and Bill of Rights,” he tweeted.

Many Twitter users questioned the lawmaker’s priorities — and also his understanding of the First Amendment, whose free speech protections do not apply to private businesses.
