(RightWing.org) – Big liberal tech companies thought they were safe to attack President Trump with the inauguration so close, but it turns out they got it wrong — in a BIG way. Their cheap political stunts last week have blown up in their faces, leaving them with a huge hole in their finances.
Late last week, Facebook and Twitter jumped at the chance to ban President Trump from their platforms. They might have thought it was a gesture that would play well with their liberal supporters, but they didn’t figure on millions of ordinary Americans pushing back. By the time stock markets opened on Monday, January 11, Twitter shares were already down 7% – and when trading started, it got even worse, as investors couldn’t drop their stock fast enough.
By the end of trading on Tuesday, Facebook and Twitter between them had seen a massive $51 billion wiped off their share value — yes, BILLION, with a B. Their Trump bans might just turn out to be the most expensive cheap shot in history.
