Trump Says Freedom of the Press Must Go Because He’s ‘Not Like Other People’

More ominously, Donald Trump wants to be able to take legal action against those he thinks are unkind in their reporting. Friday in Texas, Trump revealed his utter disdain for the First Amendment’s freedom of the press, proclaiming that he’s “gonna open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money.”

He complained to the crowd, as he sold them his own pack of lies, “I think the media is among the most dishonest groups of people I’ve ever met. They’re terrible.”

That’s some claim coming from one of the 21st century’s foremost liars. The solution to people reporting unwelcome facts about him, Trump says, is to tear up the First Amendment and start suing the media silly. This claim earned him thunderous applause. Nobody hates critics of Donald Trump more than Donald Trump than his cultists.
