Rep. Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) appeared to celebrate President Trump’s ban from Twitter Friday by posting video of the moment Saddam Hussein’s capture was announced in 2003.
“Ladies and gentlemen, we got him,” U.S. Administrator Paul Bremer said at the press conference in December 2003.

“U.S. forces converged on a farmhouse near Tikrit and discovered the Ace of Spades literally in the hole — Saddam Hussein with a pistol, hiding in a dirt pit 6 feet in the ground,” Fox News reported at the time of his capture.
In a prior tweet Friday, Bowman urged the platform to block the president’s account:
“[email protected] why is Donald Trump still out here tweeting after inciting a fascist mob? Suspend his account!” he wrote:
