Mission Statement: This blog reviews the news of the day in light of 230 years of American history. "Nationalism," a modern day pejorative, has been our country's politic throughout history, until 2008. Obama changed that narrative. Trump is seeking a return to our historical roots. Midknight Review supports this return to normality.
Fake News Story #192: Trump threates to abolish the First Amendment.
Priebus: Trump Considering Amending or Abolishing 1st Amendment
This is a headline at TMP, a Left Wing blog that features Democrat talking points and stands fiercely opposed to the Trump presidency . . . . . yet, it often quoted as "mainstream."
Understand that "amending" or "abolishing" the First Amendment is not possible. 2/3 of Congress and 3/4 of all states would have to approve such a measure. But more than that, these are the words of the TMP interviewer, not the Trump Administration.
Could Preibus have been more definitive? Yes. Is this the end of the First Amendment as we know it? No, and, I mean "hell no."
