We’re honestly not sure which it is: Are social media companies like Twitter and Instagram just reflexively flagging every single thing that comes from President Trump, or is it just a form of trolling. Whether or not you believe Joe Biden won the 2020 election, Trump is still president, and you’d think he’d be able to post a tribute on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. But as Rita Panahi reports, Instagram flagged the president’s tribute with a fact-check that Joe Biden is the projected winner of the 2020 election.

They also posted the same warning on his Thanksgiving blessing post. It really is diabolic at this point.

They tagged his Veterans Day post as well.
Makes sense, since Biden was there: "Listen Jap, here the deal"

They've just flagged anything he posts. It's probably automatic at this point. Our tech companies are the enemies of the country just like the media.

This is like a bad joke!

They are putting those on all his videos regardless of the content! I guess they got tired of having to watch all his social media so they put it on auto pilot! Bastards…

Guys, they have put it on every one of his posts since election night. This is not new.

Crazy people do stuff like this. Such a disrespect to our lost soldiers.

Insane. So rude. It's like they're trying to humiliate him. He cannot even make statements related to his ordinary presidential duties without Big Tech reminding everybody every time he says something that he is on his way out and there is another one inbound.

In their minds, they're not trying… they're doing.

It’s so patently obvious among all the reporters in our Twitter feed that they think Trump needs to step aside now so Joe Biden can take over.
