Biden's Disinformation Board Is Led by Woman Who Thought Hunter's Laptop Was Russian Disinformation
Spencer Brown / Townhall Tipsheet
As Townhall has pointed out (here and here) already, the Biden administration's decision to create a "disinformation" board aimed at cracking down on what it deems to be "misinformation" is going to be a disaster for First Amendment rights. Among her other troubling comments and Democrats' attitudes toward free expression (for me, not for thee), her repeated embrace of the leftist narrative that Hunter Biden's laptop from hell was a phony story cooked up by the Russian government is absolutely disqualifying from any role addressing disinformation. 

It's not rocket science — if you engaged in disinformation by falsely saying something else was disinformation, you have no business running a federal board that's supposed to figure out what's true and what's not. Yet here we are with Nina Jankowicz announcing that she's "[h]onored to be serving in the Biden Administration" and "helping shape our counter-disinformation efforts." Read more and see tweets here.

Trump's Back on Social Media

President Trump is back on social media, sending his first message from Truth Social, the social media platform he launched last month but which has been beta testing since February.

"I’M BACK! #COVFEFE," Trump posted along with a photo of himself in front of Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. The hashtag was in reference to a typo he made in a 2017 tweet that was eventually deleted.

"Despite the constant negative press covfefe," Trump wrote at the time. 

On Monday, the former president said he would not be going back on Twitter after billionaire Elon Musk purchased the site in a nearly $44 billion deal.

"I am not going on Twitter, I am going to stay on Truth," Trump told Fox News. "I hope Elon buys Twitter because he'll make improvements to it and he is a good man, but I am going to be staying on Truth." Read entire article and see President Trump's tweets here.
