    16 Twitter Reactions To Trump's Video To Rioters Saying "Go Home, We Love You"

    From jokes to questioning Twitter itself.

    As Trump supporters continue to stage an attempted coup at the Capitol, Trump posted a minute-long Twitter video directed at the mob — where he falsely maintained he had won the presidency and said, "Go home. We love you. You're very special." Twitter later removed the video as well as a subsequent tweet.

    However, before it was removed, the video was merely flagged by Twitter, which meant that it could not be liked, replied to, or retweeted (although quote tweets are still allowed), due to "a risk of violence."

    Of course, Twitter had thoughts. Some questioned Twitter's decision:

    If a tweet "can't be replied to, retweeted, or liked due to a risk of violence" why is it allowed on this website.....

    hey twitter if you have to say this........you should probably just ban him.......

    ⚠️ this Tweet can't be replied to, Retweeted, or liked to due to a risk of violence. But you can share it if you add some bullshit commentary like "ay caramba" anyway you're welcome

    While others were more earnest:

    Just watched Trump. All I can say is fuck him.

    Twitter: @robreiner

    Trump actually said, “We love you. You’re very special.” Never ever forget this.

    Donald Trump's Twitter video is horrific. He feeds more lies to rioters and tells the rioters he loves them. It is horrific.

    trump just said “we love you, you are very special” to these TERRORISTS. he said “when the looting starts the shooting starts” during the black lives matters protests. SEND HIM TO PRISON NOW

    Twitter: @steph0sims

    Trump has tweeted a video in which he lies that the “election was stolen from us” and lies that he won in “a landslide,” then tells the mob “but you have to go home now,” then calls the election “fraudulent,” then says we need “peace,” then calls the mob “very special.”

    Trump earlier today ordered his mob to march to the Capitol. After their attack on the U.S. Capitol, he told them, ”We love you—you’re very special.” His daughter just addressed them as “American Patriots.” Please pay attention.

    Twitter: @BeschlossDC

    Did that ignorant bitch baby just put out that video calling those terrorists “very special”?
