Every day, one out of every five people in the world uses Facebook — so when it puts its power and influence behind a political candidate, that tips the scales.
And the social media giant has a dirty little secret that was just leaked: It is all-in for one Democratic presidential candidate in 2020.
Private e-mails show that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is advising a Democrat about how to win the election next November. Top Facebook employees are lining up to swing the election.

It looks like Facebook is behind this Democrat, from top to bottom.
Zuckerberg sent South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg the names of people he thought Buttigieg should hire if he wants to win the Democratic presidential nomination, and the 2020 election.
All of those people worked for Facebook at one point. A few of them still do.
Zuckerberg admits he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, actually initiated things and sent an e-mail because they thought their employees could help out Buttigieg’s longshot presidential campaign.
It turns out, they all go way back.
Zuckerberg and Buttigieg went to Harvard at the same time and have run in the same elite circles ever since.

Zuckerberg live-streamed a tour of South Bend in 2017 and has backed Buttigieg every chance he’s gotten since.
Now, he’s trying to staff Buttigieg’s future West Wing with his own Facebook employees!
He says his left-wing employees asked him for a chance to throw President Donald Trump out of office.
“Having seen Mark’s visit to South Bend in 2017 and Facebook Live with Mayor Buttigieg, colleagues later asked Mark and Priscilla to connect them with the Buttigieg campaign as they were interested in joining,” said the family’s spokesman, Ben LaBolt.
“Mark and Priscilla have not decided who to support for President,” LaBolt said—but he wouldn’t say if Zuckerberg gave HR recommendations to any other presidential hopeful.
That strong support for one candidate verifies Republican charges of massive, anti-conservative bias inside the tech giant.

And polls show that Buttigieg is already benefiting from his buddy-buddy relationship. This week, the barely-known mayor surged into a three-way tie in Iowa.
No wonder one of his top rivals, Senator Elizabeth Warren, is ginning up phony outrage against Zuckerberg. She’s claimed that he’s secretly helping Donald Trump win a second term!
“Facebook is actively helping Trump spread lies and misinformation,” Warren said on Facebook’s rival, Twitter. “Facebook already helped elect Donald Trump once. They might do it again—and profit off of it.”

She’s complaining that Facebook said it will let Trump run ads on the platform that “TV stations won’t even run.”
She and the Democratic Party’s base want Facebook to censor the president, to ban him and his followers from even buying equal time with its 1.59 billion users.

Kamala Harris also wants to kick the president off his favorite social media platform, Twitter.
Now, the Squad is turning up the heat on Facebook for letting Trump pay big bucks to Zuckerberg and his pro-Buttigieg, Democrat employees.
“Facebook’s reckless behavior represents a threat to our privacy & American democracy,” tweeted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
AOC said America “has a Facebook problem” and that she’s going to transition away from it… and onto the even most pro-censorship Twitter.
But when the cameras aren’t running, she’s still dropping huge wads of campaign cash on Facebook.

She spent an average of $141,666 a month on Facebook ads between June and September, according to Federal Election Commission records.
The anti-Facebook charade distracts from the 17-billion-dollar industry’s support for former Wall Street employee, and left-wing Democrat Pete Buttigieg.
