Rensselaer County Executive suspended from Twitter
A local politician was suspended briefly from Twitter on Sept. 12. Republican Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin was taken off his Twitter account for a few hours after writing a response to CNN media analyst Brian Stelter. He called him "vapid," "stupid," a "babbling idiot," "insipid" and a "wet-lipped moron." Gwen Wright, a Democrat, is running against McLaughlin on Nov. 2. The incumbent has spent many hours during his term berating others on Twitter. He wrote, "I’ve said way worse about Cuomo."
Back after my 1st suspension from the censoring fascists at @Twitter. Apparently they monitor liberal loser journalists like @brianstelter. If you criticize that babbling idiot you get suspended. Oops. I guess I did it again.— Steve McLaughlin (@SteveMcNY) September 13, 2021
