Crazy how, just a few months ago this would have resulted in a ban on several social media platforms.
Nothing changed in the meantime, other than the presidential administration...
It's a travesty that this occurred. Speech was severely censored on real, serious topics, to drive a narrative to hurt a presidential candidate and this was deemed acceptable by great amounts of people. If this had happened the other way around, it would have been a scandal as big as Watergate.
It's truly sad that happened. But it highlights how untrustworthy the "4th estate" is. They are vested interests and should not be trusted any longer and should have their stake revoked. No one should take them seriously for anything.
He did that on his own by being completely ineffective against COVID-19 and making the situation much worse. There is a reason his supporters tend to be antivax and propose hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin over the vaccines.
If trump had focused less on the racism and more on effective measures to combat the virus journalists would not have dumped on him.
If you had posted the US Intelligence Community’s Assessment on social media, I doubt you’d have the problem of getting banned.
That does not match my experience.

My guess is that where ever it originated they feel that it would be an embarrassment to them to say so they push the Wuhan market theory as the cause but they give no facts to back it up.
Given that there's a very low likely hood that it was a deliberate bio weapon then I would have to say that the virus most likely escaped from the Wuhan lab. It's an embarrassment but bottomline it was a mistake. I doubt we'll have a true answer anytime soon but maybe in a couple of decades someone will decide to divulge the truth. Let's hope.
