Liberals and Democrats are looking for a way, any way, to hinder and even end Donald Trump’s presidency.
They don’t care that the rest of America elected him to office. Despite being called “Democrats,” they only adhere to democracy when their own candidate wins.
The latest effort to take down Trump might seem silly to the point of being irrelevant, but it’s not, precisely because liberals have become so unhinged.
The move centers on Trump’s use of Twitter as a platform to reach out directly to the American people.
On Twitter, if another user is constantly pestering you with unwanted replies, you can block him or her and never again see their comments.
Naturally Trump is finding himself needing to block a LOT of loudmouth liberals.
But those same liberals now insist that while everyone else can freely use the “block” feature on Twitter, the president of the United States can’t.
When Trump blocks a nagging liberal, they say, it’s a violation of free speech.
A lawsuit to that effect has been filed in federal court by the Knight First Amendment Institute at Columbia University in New York.
The suit reads:
“President Trump’s Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, has become an important source of news and information about the government, and an important public forum for speech by, to, and about the President. In an effort to suppress dissent in this forum, Defendants have excluded— ‘blocked’ —Twitter users who have criticized the President or his policies. This practice is unconstitutional, and this suit seeks to end it.”
Under normal circumstances, chances of winning such a case would be next to nothing, given that this touches on a core functionality of online social media.
But because we’re talking about Trump, you can bet the folks behind this suit will have no trouble finding a liberal federal judge willing and ready to try the case.
