Rick Scott wants Americans crazy about Hunter Biden Nudes

Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) recently told Fox Business that “Americans need to get angry” after new documents revealed the extent to which Twitter executives censored Hunter Biden’s posts last fall.

The documents, now referred to as the Twitter Files, were released last week by independent journalist Matt Taibbi, claiming to show how Twitter and its executives were able to “manipulate free speech” by censoring a story about Hunter Biden’s laptop and its contents during the 2020 election.

The story, which turned out to be true, was initially deemed a hoax by most mainstream media and social media channels.

It was published in New York Post, but Facebook and Twitter blocked links to the story because no verifiable information was available at the time. With his thread, Taibbi wants to shed light on this decision from Twitter’s point of view.

But what was promised as a bombastic, behind-the-scenes look ended up being a debate between executives about how to deal with an unconfirmed, potentially misinforming and misleading story on their platform. It also gave insight into how executives censored leaked nude photos of Hunter Biden on the platform, which were tweeted without the consent of President Joe Biden’s son.

But that hasn’t stopped Republicans from treating the Twitter files like the modern-day Pentagon Papers. In a Fox Business appearance, Scott appeared not to have read the Twitter files before being asked on the show, and spat out a stream of consciousness that was just a bunch of Republican talking points.

“Americans need to be upset about what’s going on in this country,” Scott said. “You have to be mad at the debt, the social media companies, the IRS, I mean all of those things. You have to show up and say, ‘This is my country, we have to take this country back.’”

Scott didn’t mention any specific information about the Twitter files in the short clip, making him an easy Twitter burn candidate.

“Medicare scammer Rick Scott is upset because Twitter removed Hunter’s dick pics and Americans don’t really care,” another user wrote. “He’s trying to invent bullshit conspiracy theories to distract from his and other Republicans’ efforts to cut SS and Medicare while cutting taxes on corporations and the wealthy.”

In a lengthy clip posted to Twitter by the former Florida governor himself, Scott said emails between Twitter executives in October 2020 were proof that “social media works for the Biden administration,” despite the then-candidate Biden had not been elected yet.

Scott also said leaked emails between executives that flagged certain tweets — which were nude photos of Hunter Biden — for deletion “stop free speech.”

“That has already been investigated. There is nothing but Nekkid pictures. The End”, one user wrote.
