Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, is causing liberal heads to explode all over the country today as news has surfaced of a secret congratulatory phone call made to Donald Trump after he trounced Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
Zuckerberg apparently made the call on the “down low’ a few days after the election, where he heaped praise on Trump and his team for its successful application of the Facebook platform to his campaign.
If you listen closely, you can hear the cries and screams of progressives echoing across the land.
Facebook has acknowledged in internal memos and presentations how successful Trump was at leveraging the social network to reach voters.
Facebook even used the then-Republican candidate’s strategy to hone a model — called “Test, Learn, Adapt” — to evaluate its own advertising, according to the report.
The Trump campaign spent $44 million testing 5.9 million versions of ads from June to November 2016,according to an internally-circulated white paper obtained by Bloomberg.
Clinton, in comparison, spent just $28 million testing 66,000 different ads during the same period.
The paper suggested that the Trump campaign’s Facebook strategy was “more complex than Clinton’s and better leveraged Facebook’s ability to optimize for outcomes.”
But Facebook has been reticent to publicly praise the Trump campaign’s use of its platform, irking some former campaign members who believe they deserve more credit.
Now, those of us who believe in freedom of speech don’t see a problem at all with Zuckerberg congratulating Trump. That’s the right thing to do, after all.
What’s hilarious and somewhat ridiculous about this situation is that he’s worked so hard to silence the voices of conservatives in order to appease the banshees on the left who have demanded the right be punished for using this platform to present their beliefs.
