22. the president does not get any special protections in terms of what people say about him

 

I'd bet "disrespectful" things and much much worse are said about the president every day in this country. It doesn't require a license or some kind of special standing to do this. And that is the way it should be.

About this article, I think it is none of my business if a black person wants to use this kind of language in their political commentary regarding the president. As a white person, its not my place to tell him he can't use this language.
