    Exclamation Ryan backs free speech amid Trump threat

    Ryan backs free speech amid Trump threat
    By The Associated Press

    Ryan backs free speech amid Trump threat to yank NBC license - ABC News

    "House Speaker Paul Ryan affirms his support for the First Amendment amid the president's threats to yank NBC's broadcast license."
    "Ryan told journalists Thursday, "I'm a constitutional conservative, I'm for the First Amendment."
    "The First Amendment to the Constitution protects the freedom of the press."




    =================================

    Sure looks like Trump needs to take some quick lessons from Ryan in order to learn about the First Amendment and what it says. And you know what else? With Trump wanting to pull a broadcaster's license simply because he doesn't like what they have to say is sure exhibiting the makings of a dictator. Dictatorships are not our style nor are they welcome in this country!

    You want to impeach Trump just because you don't like what he has to say.

    How is that any different?

    McCain went into another really serious argument for the 1st amendment. I heard it on Sirius so I'm not sure how recent it was but I think it was new. It was pretty passionate for McCain.

    Ryan’s comments are for his base. All politics are local. The GOP reps have to worry about the midterm election cycle.

    Classic fucking Hitler move to shut down the press and it obviously doesn't bother you. You are the type person this country has to worry about, not the supreme dumbshit.

    Another one? The president threatens to shut down one of, if not the largest, media outlets in the country because he doesn't like what they say and it obviously doesn't bother you? You pass right over that fact and comment on what Ryan had to say about it?

    You bet your ass the GOP has to worry. Every democrat running can now say this dumbshit threatens to shut down the press and if that troubles you, you better not vote for ANYONE running on the republican ticket anywhere because if he has a congress that supports him he just might do it.

    Another one what?

    I was addressing what motive could have been behind Ryan’s comments, because I’m cynical. Throwing around phrases like “constitutional conservative” come across as political rhetoric more than a criticism of the President.

    Who said anything about Trumps comments not bothering me. Stop reading into something that wasn’t there and try asking the question first.

    Another one that this country must worry about. The dumbshit says he wants to shut down the press and you obviously don't find that appalling enough to say so?

    No. A classic Hitler move is how the liberal MSM operates... and FTR you are the type of person this country has to worry about, the tolerant of intolerance type.
