YouTube Yanks Podcast With Trump Touting Election Fraud Lies After Less Than 24 Hours

The ex-president picked at the election-fraud bone again — a big no-no

Those YouTube monitors are really on their toes these days.

YouTube pulled down Thursday’s episode of “The Full Send” podcast featuring Donald Trump as a guest, some 24 hours after the viral prank group NELK posted what it called one of the “most popular podcast videos in the history of time.”

Citing community guidelines against questioning the 2020 election, YouTube told the group that its interview with Trump had been removed, roughly 24 hours after it was posted.

YouTube said the episode, taped recently at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, contained content that “advances claims that widespread fraud, errors or glitches changed the outcome of the U.S. 2020 presidential election” — content which is, to use the original German, verboten.

Bob Menery, one of the group’s hosts, lamented the swift takedown on Thursday night — but seemed more resigned than surprised, given YouTube’s new aggressive policies on whatever it deems to be misinformation.

There’s no way now of knowing now exactly what Trump said, but Mediaite reported that he reiterated his claim that the 2020 presidential election was turned via widespread fraud. He also said “be careful what you wish for” regarding Germany and Japan ramping up military spending in the face of a brewing war in Europe.

Because he no longer has Twitter, Trump responded as he’s been doing lately — via a long written statement that capitalizes “Country” and other random nouns:

Whatever happened to free speech in our Country? Incredibly, but not surprisingly, the Big Tech lunatics have taken down my interview with the very popular NELK Boys so that nobody can watch it or in any way listen to it. In the 24 hours that it was up it set every record for them, by many times. Interestingly on the show I told them this would happen because Big Tech and the Fake News Media fear the truth, they fear criticism about Biden, and above all, they don’t want to talk about the Rigged 2020 Presidential Election, all topics discussed. In Russia, the people are not allowed to know that they’re fighting a war with Ukraine, that’s where our media is going, and that’s where our Country is going because it quickly follows—just study history. Are we going to allow this to happen? Our Country is going to hell! Look at your gas prices, Inflation, the Afghanistan debacle, our Border, the war with Ukraine, which should have never happened, and so much more. We need freedom of speech again, we don’t have it and it’s getting worse every day!
