Former South Carolina governor and U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley, tweeted the following after President Trump and others were suspended from Twitter for life:
Silencing people, not to mention the President of the US, is what happens in China not our country. #Unbelievable

That caused MSNBC’s Chris Hayes to unleash this response that was unintentionally helpful:
I can guarantee you no private Chinese firm would be able to kick Xi off their platform! https://t.co/UMgryvs1v1

Now there’s a take.
Saw a screenshot of this tweet but I had to check to see if it was real. Good grief. https://t.co/966ky9mn9Y

It’s real, and it’s spectacular.

Considering that some at MSNBC and elsewhere have claimed Trump to be some sort of a dictator, one has to wonder how Twitter was able to suspend his account so easily. Maybe Trump wasn’t a dictator after all.

Chris Hayes makes a point—but it’s not the one he thinks he’s making https://t.co/Gv9zbjGzzg

That’s not uncommon.
This is such a bizarre attempt at a dunk.
Nikki Haley: Silencing speech is what China does.
Hayes: LOL you think a private company could silence the totalitarian leader of the Chinese Communist Party?
Other dork: Got her.
