    Seemingly unmentioned in all this is the fact that Trump has been one of the most anti-free press presidents in the history of the country. He doesn't give a fuck about the first amendment, and this isn't about enforcing it. It's just another example of short-sighted Republicans addressing an issue only once it affects them personally.

    Predecessor didn’t set much of an example to follow.

    The White House rejected governments from around the world to have our own gov censor social media. They acted on our laws in the constitution. They’ve show to care about the 1st amendment.


    It’s not mentioned because it’s irrelevant to the bigger picture. If creating legislation is short sighted then the creation of the first amendment is short sighted. If creating legislation is short sighted then the Dems position to create laws to close tax loopholes is short sighted, because our possible future gov might not act on it, so therefore don’t bother at all.

    Creating legislation is beyond Trump. And the 3 branches of gov will check his power. He doesn’t have all the power in the world and still can’t get all the funding he wants for his boarder. And many dems hate him so you can be sure they’ll put a check on his power.


    It doesn’t matter if they only want something only because it affects them personally. Because Dems will also benefit in the process since it protects everyone. A person that creates a medical invention that saves lives not because he cares about saving people but because he wants fame and money is still beneficial to the public.

    If he was following Obama's example, there'd still be regularly scheduled press conferences. Huckabee-Sanders lost her will to continue spouting lies like a year ago.

    Yes it does matter if the White House is only adhering the constitution when politically expedient to do so. That would put Trump in violation of his oath of office. Not that any Republican seems to care, but real Americans should.

    Let's see evidence of that first. I have yet to see Trump act in any manner that doesn't benefit him personally in some way. For the moment I have to assume they're just trying to cherry pick examples here to be used as political fodder to benefit the right-wing exclusively. Not that most wouldn't see right through the ruse.

    Yeah, however, you're only going to get "but, but ..." or deflecting replies to this fact from the Libtards. Changing your stance on-the-fly to support your floating standards is the Liberal way off life (when in all actuality that's called being full of shit). How about the Liberals see there is truth in this and say "Wait a second, maybe our Savior was also full of it".
