Donald Trump on Friday morning tweeted an article published by The Babylon Bee, a right-wing Christian satirical website similar to The Onion.
Tweeted Trump about the Babylon Bee’s report, which he shared to attack Jie Biden: “Wow, this has never been done in history. This includes his really bad interview last night. Why is Twitter doing this. Bringing more attention to Sleepy Joe & Big T.”
Writes the Babylon Bee in its “about” page: “The Babylon Bee is the world’s best satire site, totally inerrant in all its truth claims. We write satire about Christian stuff, political stuff, and everyday life. The Babylon Bee was created ex nihilo on the eighth day of the creation week, exactly 6,000 years ago. We have been the premier news source through every major world event, from the Tower of Babel and the Exodus to the Reformation and the War of 1812. We focus on just the facts, leaving spin and bias to other news sites like CNN and Fox News. If you would like to complain about something on our site, take it up with God.”
Politico reports: “The president’s message comes amid an effort by Twitter and other social media platforms to prevent the sharing of a controversial New York Post report about Biden and his son Hunter that has drawn widespread skepticism for potentially being fueled by Russian disinformation.”
