The Trump 2020 campaign ad calling mSM fake news was rejected by several networks - but that does not make it a free speech or First Amendment issue

In a statement released by the Trump 2020 campaign this afternoon, Donald Trump argued that media outlets’ ongoing refusal to accept his “First 100 Days” self-congratulatory ad infringes on his First Amendment free speech rights.

Early this morning President Elect Donald Trump tweeted that flag desecration – a protected form of constitutional expression – should be punished by either a year in jail or loss of citizenship.

Jake Tapper and Katrina Pierson discuss Trump's Basket of Deplorables

Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson rarely gets through an interview without outright lying, and her discussion with CNN’s Jake Tapper yesterday was no different. Discussing Clinton calling a good number of Trump supporters “deplorable” for their hatred and violence, Pierson not only misunderstood the meaning of Islamophobia but failed to offer a rational response when pressed about far right conservatives […]
