At this point in Donald Trump’s ridiculous, failing first term, it’s hard to believe that he’s still the President of the United States. Many Americans are wondering just how much more the country can endure, especially as Trump continues to get more psychotic and display a terrifying amount of instability.
Last night, Trump proved that he’s far more out of touch with reality than we thought. Doubling down on his recent attacks on NBC News and the media, Trump called for the broadcasting licenses of all new networks to be revoked – unless they portrayed him in a good light. Seriously. Trump tweeted:
“Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!”
Honestly, the only thing that’s “not fair to public” is that we have an absolute imbecile for POTUS – which the majority (by millions) did NOT vote for, and we have to watch him destroy the country and worry that every day he is going to make a break for the nuclear codes. THAT’S what isn’t fair here.
But of course, Trump sees it differently. Trump is still lashing out over a recent NBC story that stated that his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, called him a “moron”. Like a child, he has completely flown off the handle and is now threatening the First Amendment rights of networks. Trump should not be able to take a network off the air just because he thinks they’re being unfair to him. To Trump, “fair” means only positive news and praise about him – even though he doesn’t deserve it at all.
Let’s face the facts – Trump is launching a full on attack on the free press right before our very eyes. Trump is losing it, and his cabinet should seriously be considering the 25th Amendment to get this psycho out of office.
