New York Times Wednesday Briefing: "TRUMP VIOLATED CONSTITUTION" on Twitter

New Twitter rules for a president (and for everyone else)
A federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday that President Trump had violated the Constitution by blocking Twitter users who criticized or mocked him. Because he uses Twitter to conduct government business, the court said, he could not exclude Americans from reading or engaging with his posts because he did not like their opinions.

The ruling was one of the highest-profile decisions yet in a growing constellation of cases addressing what the First Amendment means in a time when political expression increasingly takes place online.

5. The headline I want so see is:

"TRUMP WIPED ASS ON CONSTITUTION" because that's what he does every day.

7. Do I have this right? It's a violation on the law for Trump to block someone on Twitter but

according to today's appellate decision it's not a violation of the Constitution for violating the Emoluments Clause and taking bribes when deciding policy.

Good to know. No time is ever a good time to impeach a President yet there are times when it becomes necessary and now is one of those times.

9. So... how will impeachment hearings solve this?

 

Other than that the general hue and cry that "not impeaching right this very minute" seems to be the source of all of Trumps strength, and the catalyst of everything wrong in this country, and not the GOP and Trump himself.
