Did you hear? Valerie Plame-Wilson wants to purchase Twitter for the sole purpose of putting a stop to President Trump’s tweeting. She even set up a GoFundMe page for fellow leftists to help her in the purchase. Last I checked Valerie had raised almost $14,000 of the $1 billion she desires for the purchase.
Assuming she gets any where close to the billion, it’s still a tad shy of what those in-the-know think it’s is worth. Last September Forbes estimated Twitter to have a “market valuation of $15.7 billion.” That is considerably higher than today’s market cap of $12.33 billion, but still a far cry from her fundraising goal.
On the GoFundMe page, Plame-Wilson writes that, “Donald Trump has done a lot of horrible things on Twitter. From emboldening white supremacists to promoting violence against journalists, his tweets damage the country and put people in harm’s way. But threatening actual nuclear war with North Korea takes it to a dangerous new level.”
This was her response to Trump’s tweet from August 11th, where he warned, “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely. Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path.”
