The hypocrisy of the president knows no bounds. For 31/2 years, he has lived on social media, enjoying the unchecked freedom to say anything he wants with no regard for facts or the truth.

Then, Twitter finally fact checks a couple of his tweets and he explodes, threatening to regulate — and maybe even ban — social media platforms. Of course, his childish tirade is displayed on — you guessed it — social media.

Disgusting, but no longer surprising.
