In less than nine months in office, Donald Trump seems to be well beyond his breaking point. In the midst of breaking leaks from the White House reporting that Trump is becoming unhinged, the president just tweeted yet again about taking away the right to freedom of the press because they refuse to say only what he wants them to say.
The tweet follows, and yet feels even more threatening, his early morning Twitter announcement that it may be the appropriate time to consider pulling the licenses of networks who report negative stories about him. After NBC reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was witnessed by several staff members raging about Trump and calling him a “f*cking moron,” Trump seemed to have been on the brink of a breakdown. His latest tweets seem to indicate that the breakdown has finally happened.
Twitter responded in full force to oppose Trump’s threats to curtail First Amendment rights.
