“Cutting off the nose to spite the face” is an expression to describe a needlessly self-destructive over-reaction to a problem: “Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face” is a warning against acting out of pique, or against pursuing revenge in a way that would damage oneself more than the object of one’s anger.
So President Trump claims wrongly the following in a fecking tweet!
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump·….Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!
The morons over reaction are to then, yep you have guessed it; threaten to shut down free speech. In other words. He claims he will do the very thing he is upset about. He claims they are stifling his FREE SPEECH so his reaction is to stifle everyone’s free speech. What a moron. It’s like he says because you will no longer entitle me to blatantly lie on social media then I isn’t going to let the world use social media.
Can you imagine the shit storm that would cause if he somehow tried to do what the moron is threatening? It would be most amusing.
His devil’s would most certainly be in his detail.
