    In general, billionaires haven’t been eager to support the campaign of Tulsi Gabbard, the Hawaii congresswoman running for president in 2020. But there is one exception: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

    The social media billionaire, who also contributed to the campaign committees of Andrew Yang and Jay Inslee, gave $5,600 to Gabbard’s campaign the day after she appeared onstage in the June Democratic debates, maxing out contribution limits for both primary and general elections. BuzzFeed first reported Dorsey’s contributions in July. Forbes analyzed all of Gabbard’s itemized campaign contributions alongside a list of every American billionaire, finding that no one else has contributed to Gabbard’s campaign.

    Dorsey said he supported Gabbard’s strong anti-war stance, as well as Yang’s focus on artificial intelligence and automation. “Their voices are important to surface in the debates,” he tweeted, adding “Along with systemically addressing climate change and economic injustice, these are the key issues of global consequence I want to see considered and discussed more.”

    Before the current election cycle, Dorsey, 43, had never donated more than $200 to a presidential candidate, according to Federal Election Commission filings. Last month, he announced that Twitter would ban all political ads on its platform.

    … and yet the Orange Imbecile is still allowed to spew vile, hateful political rhetoric from his Adderal-addled brain nearly 24/7.

    I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.
