Well, then there’s the other reason. It’s a free campaign ad
And now Facebook will let him run it on their platform.
Zuck will do whatever it takes to make sure nobody fucks with his ability to ruin the world.
Woof, this is actually the worst case scenario, where now Facebook has widely publicized their fact checkers, giving everyone a false sense of security in the trustworthiness of their garbage machine, while slipping in bullshit under exemptions that are not clearly identified as exemptions. It’s almost as if all the fact checking expenditures and publicity were to set up a trusted environment for lying advertisers to exploit.
I seriously think he’s losing it. He’s flailing in any case.
Is he just yelling all of the things he’s doing now?
Well, he just openly admitted pushing Ukraine for dirt on Biden (which is… checks notes… the thing he was screaming was a “complete hoax” just yesterday). So he’s not exactly in a stable place.

In case there was any question that this was about his likely Democratic opponent…
Will no one rid me of my opponents?
Unlike Biden, Warren is getting out in front of this story quickly…
Sure to be a “perfect” transcript summary soon.
CAUTION: From the husband of the Kellyanne
At 30 pages, apparently George has a lot of spare time.
Probably all that time normal couples spend talking to each other, watching GoT, making love, etc.
Or just angling for a post trump cable teevee show in the Carville/Matlin mode.
Holy moly, this is “please don’t make me put the crime in writing”-level bad:
Yeah it’s bad… but you can already see the spin. That last text he pretty much says oh but that’s not what the president is doing. He just cares about corruption. It’s not personal. It’s just like what Biden and Obama were doing. Sigh.
