Interesting new development in the controversy over that video depicting a fake Donald Trump violently taking down his political and media opponents. Pro-Trump memesmith @CarpeDonktum, who defended the video (he was the one not behind it) has apparently had his Twitter account suspended:

It’s unclear which of Twitter’s decidedly arbitrarily applied rules @CarpeDonktum violated.
Is it permanent?

Stay tuned …
Meanwhile, this should definitely teach @CarpeDonktum a lesson:
Oh, that will surely stop him… https://t.co/BKvFRYDYTU

Well if there was one way to make sure everyone sees Carpe Donktum's dumb Trump thumping Jib Jabs, that was certainly one way to go about it.

Is @CarpeDonktum’s Twitter time-out over?

So … what happened?
Seems like he's back.
What was the reason given for the suspension? https://t.co/QfBx8tn9TQ

I asked Twitter why Carpe Donktum's account was taken down.
A spokesperson told me that a valid violation of copyright claim was made.
