I’m sure the POTUS will do the right thing and ask these individuals to reconsider their past actions and only post unbiased, well sourced, and factual information… right?

Oh god, no. Not Ben Garrison.

Sadly not surprised that his ridiculous stumping for Trump got him some sort of in. But to the social media summit??

What, the Gab dude isn’t going to be there? And if it’s a party for jerks, Jack Dorsey is really gonna feel left out.

Last month, Twitter said it would begin labeling tweets from Trump that violate its policies but are allowed to stay on the site because he is a national political figure.

Oh gods, I just realized - when Trump leaves office, he might actually have his twitter account shut down. That might hurt him more than anything. (Fingers crossed!)

Inviting only trolls to a social media summit is itself next-level trolling.

Isn’t Twitter itself a running sore of trollery, not to mention the others? You’d think they’d fit right in.

Inviting antisemitic hagiographer Ben “Zyklon B” Garrison to this “summit.” Makes sense.

LATE BREAKING UPDATE: Garrison has been uninvited to the “summit.” And apparently this is what did it:

So, the meaning of this cartoon is that Trump is enslaving minorities to build his ridiculous looking self aggrandizing edifice dedicated to himself and his vague sloganeering?

Another invitee, Ben Garrison, has published cartoons that have drawn sharp rebukes from the Anti-Defamation League and the Southern Poverty Law Center for including hateful text and imagery.

Someone should really convince them to invite The Onion’s Stan Kelly.

To think that the social media companies weren’t sketchy enough to make the cut for the Trump administration social media summit. Eeeeeech.

Garrison is fascinating to me because he’s just so fucking TALENTLESS. Dude can barely draw; everything has that weird airbrush shading that makes it look like it’s inflatable; and his visual metaphors are so clumsy that he has to write words all over them to tell you what the joke/point is. His fame and visibility come only from his willingness to prostrate himself.

In short, he’s a great reminder that scum as well as cream floats to the top.
