The latter part is demonstrably untrue. Manafort providing polling data to a Russian comes to mind.

He's been claiming that kind of thing pretty consistently, as it is. In Cohen's case, for example, Cohen stated that he didn't have proof of collusion, but that he thought that it was fairly likely and offered an anecdote in support of that. Trump claimed that Cohen said that there was no collusion. There have been plenty of other cases, I think, but such gets lost in the mess that Trump and his Trump Administration have been causing on so many fronts.

These are the "very fine people" that Trump has decided to champion.

No mention that Louis Farrakhan was also banned, of course.

They also Breitbart's attempted congressional dream candidate turned Nazi, Paul Nehlen. At this point it needs to be pointed out that it took Facebook a year longer than Gab to ban him.

I think you need to clarify what "no mention" refers to? (ETA: Trump's tweet I think) Your link has him pictured right at the top of the page (and it has all along I think, I've seen the article before).

Yes, I thought that was clear, particularly in light of some of the other interesting omissions Trump's made lately.

I dunno if that captures it exactly.

I think it's more like living next door to that dysfunctional guy in the trailer home. It's funny when you can look out the window and see him arguing with the air about something stupid, with him drunk wearing a wifebeater shirt, boxer shorts, and black socks with his flip-flops.

Until you realize he's carrying a handgun, and his kids are inside the trailer, and his wife is giving him the thumbs up and several "right on!" comments. Then it's less laughing stock and more "Will he get help before he snaps, and how much damage will it cause?"

That's called an analogy, and in this case the point is that the ends don't justify the means.
You don't need an analogy to point out that ends don't justify means. But you still haven't shown that the means are bad. Your analogy contained something which made the means bad, but now you're admitting that that part of the analogy isn't even applicable here. So your analogy basically serves no purpose, and you have failed to advance your argument. What has Giuliani done wrong here, and why is it wrong? Explain it directly, without the use of analogies.

Had a long and very good conversation with President Putin of Russia. As I have always said, long before the Witch Hunt started, getting along with Russia, China, and everyone is a good thing, not a bad thing....

....We discussed Trade, Venezuela, Ukraine, North Korea, Nuclear Arms Control and even the “Russian Hoax.” Very productive talk!

Somehow I don't feel reassured.

You think Trump ever suspects that he's in over his head?

Also noticed this in a tweet: But now Republicans and Democrats must come together for the good of the American people. No more costly & time consuming investigations.

Does that mean he no longer wants to know about the oranges of the Mueller investigation? How many minutes until he reverses himself?

No, that's his completely compartmentalized thinking. Parts of his brain turn on and off and don't know what he says when he's using the other parts.

I swear - sometime soon I expect to see Trump with smoke coming out of his ears. His addled brain will obey its instinct for self-preservation, while his words will devolve into a mashup of syllables that will just barely clear the "danger to himself or others" bar.

It will happen in real time, while the whole world watches.

The wonderful Diamond and Silk have been treated so horribly by Facebook. They work so hard and what has been done to them is very sad - and we’re looking into. It’s getting worse and worse for Conservatives on social media!

So surprised to see Conservative thinkers like James Woods banned from Twitter, and Paul Watson banned from Facebook!

The Dues Sucking firefighters leadership will always support Democrats, even though the membership wants me. Some things never change! Time magazine link
As the leadership of the union, IAFF, has acknowledged, there is a lot of support for Donald Trump within the membership but polling has shown more support for Biden. IAFF president Harold Schaitberger said of Biden, “He runs in the middle of the political spectrum on a worker-focused platform — and that’s where we have to be a strong voice.” As for Trump's inflammatory and insulting comments:

“I’m just going to continue to communicate out what we do and not directly respond to unpleasant and unseemly and inaccurate tweets,” Harold Schaitberger, president of the International Association of Fire Fighters, tells TIME.

WTF?
We have a president repeating this nonsense.

I suppose it could be worse. Right now he doesn’t believe it; he is just doing it for the attention and to please his base.

There is nothing easy about a USA Infrastructure Plan, especially when our great Country has spent an astounding 7 trillion dollars in the Middle East over the last 19 years, but I am looking hard at a bipartisan plan of 1 to 2 trillion dollars. Badly needed!

When will the Radical Left Wing Media apologize to me for knowingly getting the Russia Collusion Delusion story so wrong? The real story is about to happen! Why is @nytimes, @washingtonpost, @CNN, @MSNBC allowed to be on Twitter & Facebook. Much of what they do is FAKE NEWS!

Anything in this very interesting world is possible, but I believe that Kim Jong Un fully realizes the great economic potential of North Korea, & will do nothing to interfere or end it. He also knows that I am with him & does not want to break his promise to me. Deal will happen!

Very good call yesterday with President Putin of Russia. Tremendous potential for a good/great relationship with Russia, despite what you read and see in the Fake News Media. Look how they have misled you on “Russia Collusion.” The World can be a better and safer place. Nice!

The support for me has been incredible. This could actually lead to some genuine change. Keep up the pressure. Don't let it rest.
“Dangerous”. My opinions? Or giving a handful of giant partisan corporations the power to decide who has free speech?
You decide.

When did we quit teaching/understanding that free speech means protecting the distasteful, lest we open the door for govt/3d parties to decide that whatever they oppose is "distasteful" and therefore to be banned? #SlipperySlope

When did we decide, as Americans, that it's ok fo govt & 3d parties to censor/ curate our info? That we cannot be trusted with unfiltered info? That we shd only be able to find info that *they* tell us is true on matters that are opinion or in legitimate dispute? #SlipperySlope

Those suggesting Facebook can ban anyone for any reason because they are a private company do not understand the platform/publisher distinction or the special legal protections afforded the former.

So James Woods was kicked off Twitter for quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson...but @TalbertSwan the racist fake man of God, that’s SUPPOSED to be permanently banned for hate speech is back on? What have you to say @jack @Twitter ?

BOOM:
Despite horrendous media treatment coverage Trump stands at 51% approval rating!
They tried to defame him
They tried to defeat him
They tried to displace him
They tried to overthrow him
They tried to remove him
He won
We won
America won
We will win again in 2020!
