Apparently every blogging service etc. Trump has used is now blocking him, including a few he has never posted to, e.g. at least one porn site (see band wagon - jump on it for fame and profit), and the far-right Parler service that coordinated the riots has gone down the tubes big-time, with a lot of their data hacked as they were going down. Should we be banning him here?

As I understand it he's currently trying to send tweets by carrier pigeon. This is what is known as an attempted coo.

No.

Last night was the first time since the US Civil War that federal troops slept at the Capitol to protect it from possible violence, reports say.

Not Putin, I think.

I wonder if Putin was able to blackmail Trump with stuff from his earlier visits to Mother Russia?

Most likely, a trained spy against a mentally sick moron, there was a reason why Russian hackers tried to boost this guys' election in the past in the first place. While Trump prided himself to be "unpredictable" his metal profile and his personality made it easy to predict and manipulate a simple mind.

Trained spy? Really? You believe Mr Putin was trained spy? :mrgreen:
You'll never know names of really trained spies. Well, maybe decades later.
