As we previously reported, Elon Musk ran a poll about whether to reinstate President Donald Trump’s Twitter account. It garnered more than 15 million votes and more voted to reinstate him than not. So Musk reactivated Trump’s account immediately.
Now, I think Musk had intended on reinstating him anyway, as he had previously indicated, but running the poll confirmed that it was the will of the people. Additionally, it also gave them a lot more engagement on the site.
But you know that the folks on the left are losing their minds over this already. Some have left, but others don’t have the courage of their convictions and are still there, melting down on the site.
Rasmussen Reports had a good take on what it’s looking like right now.

You know it’s a virtual goldmine of delicious liberal tears right now from all the usual suspects. Suddenly they all hate “democracy” and voting if it helps to bring back Trump.
Warning for the graphic language:
Elon Musk is letting a man who led a violent Insurrection to overthrow the United States Government back on this platform. Letting the Lies and Disinformation continue to poison the American bloodstream.

After this week, Terrorist Trump's $8 would constitute half of Musk's income from twitter https://t.co/is4mXMQOLS

Suddenly it’s cool to question votes again and scream “Russia, Russia, Russia!”

This is one of my favorites from actor Josh Gad. He’s not at all happy with free speech or Musk.
You are truly an asshole and an anarchist. https://t.co/YuGMtEPal4

Everyone is going to die now!!
People who were insanely naive when Trump effectively took over Twitter and cost the world countless lives and incalculable wealth/time are being even more insanely naive about musk literally taking over Twitter and inevitably costing countless lives and incalculable wealth/time.

Of course, Luke probably couldn’t explain how this is going to cost lives or how he cost lives before when he was on Twitter, but hey, he’s a leftist, it doesn’t have to be logical.
Benjamin Wittes isn’t willing to go all the way. These people.
I do not intend to share a platform with Donald Trump again—at least not more than I have to. I will not exit Twitter entirely, as I have Lawfare content to promote and Twitter is useful for many things. That said, I don’t plan to spend time here any more for purposes other

than reading news and promoting our work. For those who wish to follow my work, thoughts, and sillinesses, I will be migrating most of that to Substack and Mastodon and Facebook/Instagram.
I am not leaving, but I’m leaving, if you know what I mean.
It’s been real.

Soooo … Elon reinstated @realdonaldtrump on Biden’s birthday. pic.twitter.com/RWM5BFVIkM

Biden’s birthday is tomorrow, but he was probably already asleep before the reinstatement. What just perfect treat to wake up to on your birthday.
Trump has already said that he’s busy with Truth Social, so it remains to be seen whether he would be back. But it’s the right decision as he should never have been banned, to begin with.
I’m still barred for speaking the truth on Twitter. The Dems control of Twitter has silenced thousands for violating the Democratic agenda… Hope Musk fires all the Twitter political censors..
Well, well, well, Mr. Josh Gad, Sir, Just Maybe, You Lefties, Would NOT Like It, IF We On The Right Side Of The US Political Equation, Who Have Faithfully Followed #45, Would Have Turned The US Political Table Onto Your Way Of Thinking And Performed The Very Same Anti-US Constitutional And Illegal Actions = CENSURE And CANCEL CULTURE Toward You Hard Headed Lefties! Well, That Is The Very Same Offensive Feelings, That We On The Right Have Been Feeling, Ever Since You Lefties Blindly Followed That Anti-US Constitutional Extremely Radicalized Islamic Muslim #44 , When He Started And Illegally IGNORED = CIRCUMNAVIGATED = CIRCUMVENTED The Whole US Constitution, Especially The Last Pertinent Part= The 7/27/1993 AD Version Of The Immigration And Naturalization Act’s Rules And Regulations, Which Started This “Illegal Foreign Alien Invasion” In His 1st Year And 1st Term, As NOT My us president, Whose Name Is Mr. Bathroom Barry Alias Barack Hussein Soetoro Alias Soebackah Alias Dunham Alias Obama, Back In 1997, He Was Never Thoroughly Investigated/Vetted #44 To The Fullest Extent, To Make Sure That #44 Would Never Deviate In Faithfully Following The Whole US CONSTITUTION, TO THE LETTER, WORD/ WIRD/ WIRD/WERD, AND ALL OF THE TIME! Which Had FAILED / FLUNKED THE US HISTORY CLASS, HE NEVER TOOK!!!!!!!!!!!
Trump and Babylon Bee, being reinstated. This tickles the cockles of my heart. Nothing gives me greater pleasure, today, than to see the flow of ideas and free speech. eat dirt, dems.
We have to stop caring what the left thinks
