Like a good little tin-pot tyrant,
Trump threatened to pull MSNBC's and CNN's licenses at his latest mob gathering in Las Vegas, because they don't kiss his fat, greasy ass.
Isn't that what Communist countries do when media don't suck up to their leaders?
Yes. That's exactly how authoritarians and Commies operate.
So here we have the GOP's hero, telling his followers that the media that don't flatter him enough, who dare to report all of his lies and corrupt actions should have their licenses taken away by the government.
Folks, whether it's a joke or not isn't important. Here we have an American POTUS talking like a dirty Communist leader, and his followers are too stupid to be outraged by the mere suggestion.
Certain trolls from a certain rabid right wing blog come here on a daily basis and label me a Commie. I have no idea what possesses these trolls; they certainly are not operating from a position of knowledge or rationality. I'd love to ask them how they'd explain Trump's musings about taking away the licenses of media he doesn't like. I'd love to know how those GOP trolls square that threat from Trump with our Constitution and our rule of law.
