Remember back in 2020 when President Trump threatened to ban TikTok because of data security issues? CNN did an analysis and said what might really have been motivating Trump: Trolls had used the app to register fake sign-ups for his rally in Oklahoma, and comedian Sarah Cooper scored thousands of views “mercilessly lampooning his speeches.” But CNN had to concede that Trump had a point: “… the app’s critics warn that because it is owned by a Chinese company, Beijing could force it to turn over data on millions of American users and even infiltrate US corporations.”

Now the commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission is calling on Apple and Google to remove TikTok from their app stores. Maybe Trump had a point and wasn’t just being “a grumpy 70-something spoiling the kids’ fun.”

We’d miss Libs of TikTok, but those people will never stop posting videos of themselves being crazy.
