Former CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson, who was famously put in harm's way by former president George W. Bush in 2003 after his administration leaked her identity as an agent as a way to try to discredit her husband's denunciation of the Iraq War, has taken to social media to join the call to get President Trump banned from Twitter. She's now put together a crowdfunding campaign albeit probably a symbolic one to buy a controlling share of Twitter so that she can do the job herself. As the Associated Press notes, that would cost about $6 billion. So far it's raised a bit over $22,000.
Since posting the call to Twitter, Wilson has defended herself to critics saying she's just "trying to avoid nuclear war" and asserting that both "emboldening white supremacy and threatening nuclear war" should be violations of Twitter's terms of service.
The AP story was subsequently picked up in the New York Times.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement regarding Wilson saying, "Her ridiculous attempt to shut down his first amendment is the only clear violation and expression of hate and intolerance in this equation."
In his Tuesday night speech in Phoenix, President Trump defended his use of Twitter, while a July poll by ABC News and the Washington Post found that 68 percent of Americans believe his Twitter use is "inappropriate."
