Trump Tweet Threatens Violence to Journalists, Undermines First Amendment

This morning, Trump tweeted an old video of himself pummeling a wrestler after the wrestler was thrown out of the ring. The wrestler taking Trump’s blows is labeled CNN.

I see this as a direct incitement to violence against the media and anyone who dares to criticize King Donald.

I reported this tweet to Twitter as abusive and violent. I said that I, as a writer and critic, feel dupirectly threatened by the violence that this man adores and encourages.

He is a phony hero. He praises the military, but claimed five deferments to avoid the draft. He is a draft dodger.

His attacks on the media are an attack on the First Amendment.

Does he know about the First Amendment?

This man has no dignity. He defines the term “low-life.” He is a national and international embarrassment. As far as I am concerned, he was elected by Putin, and he is #NotMyPresident.

God save our country from this man and the viciousness and ignorance that he represents so well.
