Perhaps the one thing that the discredited mainstream media loathes the most about President Trump is that he has been successfully using social media to take his message directly to the people.
Forget all of the hogwash about Russian bots, the biggest bug up the asses of the left and especially Silicon Valley is that Trump was able to run the first campaign of the new high-tech era by utilizing both Twitter and Facebook to do as FDR did with his famous fireside chats.
It won the election for Trump, humiliating Hillary Clinton, legions of highly paid political consultants and leaving the entire media with egg dripping from their faces on the day after the votes had been counted.
Now that Jack Dorsey of Twitter and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook are in the process of conducting a vast and politically motivated purge of conservatives and Trump supporters from their services, the Trump reelection campaign is going back to the regular internet.
All Trump campaign events will be available via streaming video without having to be fed through the media filter, rendering the gatekeepers irrelevant and with any luck, giving Dorsey and Zuckerberg a hell of a spanking once conservatives stop using their platforms which are now rigged in favor of Democrats.

Via The Washington Examiner “Trump re-election campaign to bypass media by streaming rallies ‘directly’ to Americans”:
The Trump campaign will now be bypassing the media and delivering live streams of President Trump’s rallies “directly” online.
The president delivered a speech more than an hour long in Moon Township, Pa., in the evening Saturday, where he gave a last-minute push for GOP congressional candidate Rick Saccone, who is running in the special election for the 18th Congressional District.
In an announcement, Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. said it ran a beta live stream of the event, available on social media as well as the websites of the campaign and the Republican National Committee.
“This evening Americans were able to experience a Trump rally without the filter of the mainstream media thanks to our MAGA Direct beta live stream we delivered to our social media channels and websites for the first time,” said Brad Parscale, campaign manager for Trump’s 2020 campaign.
“As we engage in the 2018 mid-terms and plan in advance for the 2020 presidential campaign, we will continue to model ourselves after President Trump and explore new ways to leverage social and digital media. Through our live streaming of campaign events, we can connect more directly with Americans who serve as our inspiration to continue to Make America Great Again,” he added.
Parscale, who worked as a digital aide to Trump’s 2016 campaign, was picked last month to lead his re-election bid. In a statement, the campaign said it would beging to focus on “building its infrastructure for the 2020 race.”
The new live stream operation will include “newer IP technology and multiple camera angles that enable viewers to experience Trump rallies and other events more directly,” the statement Saturday said.
There is a lot at stake in 2020 and if the successful businessman Trump is able to find a way to render Facebook and Twitter irrelevant it will be a yuuuge win for America and hopefully provide an opportunity to bust up the two chickenshit liberal monopolies.
