Dinosaur Senator Blumenthal is drooling and has his diapers in a bundle because he’s big mad that Trump is challenging the election results. He’s bending over begging for Twitter $TWTR and Facebook $FB to make it stop. Awwww
Sen. Durbin asks Mark Zuckerberg about Facebook's approach to Hate Speech on the platform: "Are you looking the other way at a potentially dangerous situation?" Zuckerberg: "No, Senator, we take hate speech and incitement of violence, extremely seriously." #SenateHearing
