Wired released their annual list of “Most Dangerous People on The Internet,” and for the fifth year in a row, they have placed President Donald Trump at the top. The liberal publication declared that he “remains the world’s single most powerful source of disinformation and the internet’s most toxic cyberbully.”
The Wired explains their ranking of Trump as follows:
For the sixth year in a row, Donald Trump tops our list. As his presidential term comes to an end, he remains the world’s single most powerful source of disinformation and the internet’s most toxic cyberbully. Trump has used his massive Twitter presence to downplay fears of Covid-19 and confuse public understanding since the virus’s earliest days, at a time when an organized response might have saved thousands of lives. He went on to promote unproven and eventually discredited treatments for the disease, like the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine.
He demanded the “liberation” of states whose governors instituted restrictions on businesses to stop the spread of Covid-19, and helped refashion the choice to wear a mask into a partisan political issue. In the wake of the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police, he railed against the Black Lives Matter protestors in cities across the US, painting them exclusively as rioters and fanning the flames of violence with online declarations like “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”
And he spent the last months of his presidency in a shameful, deranged attempt to convince his followers that the results of an election he squarely lost to Joe Biden were rigged, an assertion that even his own administration officials have stated has no basis in reality. The damage Trump has inflicted with social media alone will resonate through history. And as he reportedly lays the groundwork for a 2024 run, that damage will continue.
Interestingly enough, the list also included Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for watching “as his social network amplified misinformation.”

McConnell Introduces New $2K Stimulus Bill, With a Twist
Many Americans were instantly angry with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell when he voted “no” on the proposed $2,000 stimulus checks on Tuesday.
