President Donald Trump’s favorite meme-maker Carpe Donktum was suspended from Twitter on Monday, immediately after sharing an exclusive clip provided to him by Project Veritas.
Donktum’s account was promptly restored after massive public outcry.
The video Donktum tweeted was part of Project Veritas’ “Expose CNN” series and featured CNN’s media coordinator Christian Sierra discussing the network’s coverage of shootings.

This is @CNN…
CNN media coordinator says nobody cares about gang violence that disproportionately affects minorities in Chicago… “Unless it happens on Cory Booker’s block.”

Donktum’s hilarious video memes are frequently shared by President Trump. In July, he and his family were invited to the White House to meet the president.
This isn’t the first time Donktum has been suspended from the platform. He was suspended in January over a parody clip of Trump confronting CNN’s Jim Acosta at a saloon. The meme was titled “The Twitter Fight at No Wall Corral.”
Eventually, Donktum regained access, but was suspended again in May when Brian Krassenstein tweeted a call for his followers to mass report the meme-maker’s account.
