Filmmakers Claim Twitter Is Silencing #ObamaGate


The makers of ‘ObamaGate The Movie’ have discovered something unusual in their online efforts to promote the film.

Film producers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, claim the phrase “ObamaGate” has been secretly removed from Twitter’s “latest” search function. Despite recent tweets using the hashtag.

The film’s producer and co-writer, McAleer, slammed Twitter for their censorship, “ObamaGate trended on Twitter for days and was tweeted over 3.5 million times, according to the Independent, and now it has been completely removed from Twitter’s search function.  This is China-like censorship in America.  Twitter is selectively editing history right before our eyes and it has to stop.  We must hold Twitter accountable,” McAleer said in a press release.

McAleer notes that the Washington ExaminerRefinery29, and In Print further confirm that the phrase should show millions of results when searched for on Twitter. 

“They wiped it from Twitter, they’re trying to put it down the memory hole because they don’t like this,” McAleer says in a recent YouTube video discussing the issue.

Cain is playing former FBI agent Peter Strzok, while Kristy Swanson is portraying Lisa Page. John James, who played Jeff Colby in the "Dynasty" TV series, will star as James Comey.
