First son Eric Trump on Wednesday suggested that the Supreme Court of the United States take up the issue of Fox News personalities Diamond & Silk being allegedly censored on social media.
“Honestly, it’s a disgrace,” said Trump.
The president’s middle son was on Fox & Friends to evidently parrot his father’s point the day before, in which he claimed there “is collusion” with respect to social-media censorship of conservative voices.
“If they’re conservative, if they’re Republicans, if they’re in a certain group, there is discrimination, and big discrimination,” the president said Tuesday, after a torrent of tweets alleging a campaign against him and other right-wing allies by social-media companies. “I see it absolutely on Twitter and Facebook, which I have also and others. We have to do something about it.”
Eric, echoing his dad, told the curvy couch crew: “Don’t tell me there is no bias. Diamond & Silk, two of nicest human beings in the world, are getting kicked off YouTube on a daily basis. They post funny but yet benign videos. You want to see some of the hate speech I get toward me, they do absolutely nothing about those individuals? It only goes one way. If you’re on the left, you’re totally protected. If you’re on the right, they absolutely try and kill you.”
Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade added: “Your brother was here saying same thing three weeks ago because he was being censored.”
“I would love to see it go to the Supreme Court, to tell you the truth,” Eric Trump said. “The irony of the whole situation, you have everybody in the media, everybody on The Washington Post and The New York Times, they stand behind free speech whatever they want to do. As tragic as it often is, whatever they want to do. Yet when conservatives are out there getting censored by big tech, they say absolutely nothing about it.”
