This should concern everyone- especially much of his base- the self appointed protectors of the constitution.
Anyway- a week or so ago Trump declared he would drastically change fredom of the press laws. Making it far easier to sue for “falsehoods”. And of course, that he himself would sue, sue, sue.
As it stands now, the plaintiff must show that publishers knowingly and with mailce published falsehoods. Essentially he wants to flip this around- so the publisher must prove their statements are completely true. (Now- ponder this: would the likes of Breitbart, the Blaze, the Drudge Report, or Fox News still be in existence if such a law existed during Obama’s terms ? Or Clintons? )
And, after his latest issues at his rallies- he has called for police to arrest protesters at his rallies. People exercising a fundemental constiutional right. And he did so with malice- explicitly wanting these people to have “criminal” records that would interfere with the rest of their lives. (although I gues he IS a little unclear on the difference between misdemeanor and felony, and the large number of people- including Bernie Sanders, who have been arrested for political dissent and gone on to sucessful lives).
Regardless- we are seeing a man who wants to warp the world to fit HIS arrogant…and let’s face it- extremely insecure, world. Realities. And Constiution be damned.
The only thing worrying me more in this world right now more then Donald Trump… is Ted Cruz. And that’s because- for all those truly big issues I need to be worrying about… in our country and in our world… either one of them will make them so much worse.
