Because don’t you know? That sort of riling up of supporters is only allowed when HE is doing it! No one ELSE can direct their peeps to take a stand against HIS peeps!
What kills me is that she is literally directing people to exercise their first amendment rights, exactly like they were intended to be expressed. There was no talk of violence. Just verbal protest.
But Trump addresses it as if she’s inciting violence, after which HE threatens HER. FOR EXERCISING HER RIGHTS.
Same thing he did to Samantha Bee. And what she said was stupid, and didn’t do us any favors, but she was within her rights. (And her network would be within its rights to fire her, too).
But this is literally the most powerful government official on the planet inciting people to violence in order to silence dissenting voices. Which is the complete opposite of what the first amendment is about. He wants to be a regular citizen, and react hatefully to every, single word said in opposition to his idiocy. He lacks the capacity to understand that the moment he took that oath (fingers crossed), he ceased to be “we, the people”, whose speech is protected, and became “the government”, who the people are supposed to be protected from. We get to say what we need to say, and he doesn’t get to punish us for it.
His whole self is just completely backward.
I hate his stupid existence. I wish he would just have a fucking coronary already.
