Trump Threatens Satirists at SNL with Federal Investigation

Trump’s insinuation will certainly raise a number of eyebrows, including many who find themselves disgusted by SNL but righteously proud and protective of the 1st Amendment.

Free Speech

President Trump awoke Sunday morning, ready to spar with the entirety of the internet regarding the freedom of speech.

In America, our First Amendment right to free speech is sacred.  It is the very reason for the remainder of the Constitution itself, protected of course by the Second Amendment.  There should be no question as to what is protected speech and what is not.

Of course, the divisive liberal media believes otherwise.  They have long worked to regulate free speech, drawing up ever-larger circles of “no-no” words and phrases, while creating upwards of 70 gender pronouns that they use to target those who are “not in the know”.

And while we may find ourselves laughing at the mainstream media from time to time, they are not purely comedy – another realm where the fight for free speech is alive and kicking.

Today, the President made a bold statement regarding the First Amendment and how it pertains to satire.

President Donald Trump began his Sunday morning venting about ‘Saturday Night Live,’ complaining the show should be investigated by federal regulators for mocking him but not Democrats.

The president complained their treatment of him was ‘like an advertisement without consequences’ and a boost to help Democrats.

‘It’s truly incredible that shows like Saturday Night Live, not funny/no talent, can spend all of their time knocking the same person (me), over & over, without so much of a mention of ‘the other side.’ Like an advertisement without consequences. Same with Late Night Shows,’ he wrote on Twitter.

The President’s rhetoric was soon elevated, however.

And he added: ‘Should Federal Election Commission and/or FCC look into this? There must be Collusion with the Democrats and, of course, Russia! Such one sided media coverage, most of it Fake News. Hard to believe I won and am winning. Approval Rating 52%, 93% with Republicans. Sorry! #MAGA’

Trump’s insinuation will certainly raise a number of eyebrows, including many who find themselves disgusted by SNL but righteously proud and protective of the First Amendment.

Satire is protected by The Constitution as a tenet of free speech.

Save conservative media!

Everybody should be held accountable for their role, no matter how big or small, for having a hand in this entire impeachment fiasco. Missouri Senator Josh Hawley (R) hopes to see it come to fruition. From Politico: If the Senate decides to consider new impeachment trial witnesses and documents next week, Sen. Josh Hawley plans to try and force votes on everyone from Adam Schiff to Joe Biden. The Missouri Republican is preparing to file subpoena requests for witnesses and documents that Democrats and Republicans alike won’t want to vote on. Hawley’s strategy harmonizes with plans from GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky to force votes to hear from Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son who was on the board of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

That’s the easy part. What’s crazy is that Democrats are willing to overlook Joe’s malfeasance and corruption because they so loathe Donald Trump – a president who has literally committed no crime while in office. Had Trump actually committed a crime, we would have known about it by now. And yet, Dems keep reaching and reaching for something, anything – always coming up flat. From Daily Wire: New York Times reporter Kenneth Vogel said on the newspaper’s podcast on Wednesday that Ukrainian gas company Burisma got its “rationale” to put then-Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, on its board because of Joe Biden’s position in the U.S. government and his activities in Ukraine. Allegations surrounding the Joe and Hunter Biden’s in Ukraine and with Burisma have become a sore spot for Joe Biden as…

Noted Trump Critic Says POTUS Defense Team Was ‘Brilliant’ & ‘Sophisticated’ & ‘Effective’

The trifecta…

It is so easy to defeat a liberal argument, especially regarding the impeachment of President Trump, that even noted anti-Trump Democrats are joining in on the fun. In other words, things are not looking up for Schiff and company. Not at all. The Daily Wire has the scoop… Constitutional Law Professor at George Washington University Jonathan Turley, a Trump critic who was widely praised for his non-partisan testimony during House Democrats’ impeachment hearings, praised Trump’s legal team on Saturday over their performance in defending the president. “The House took a lot of hits below the waterline today,” Turley wrote on Twitter. “These were powerful points that gave ample foundation for senators to support acquittal without agreeing with the Dershowitz theory or the suggestion that everything was ‘perfect.’ I liked the low key, fact-based argument.” Turley added, “The White House did a particularly good job explaining its position on refusing discovery and also the unfair process. Moreover, it was a brilliant decision to limit the opening to a few hours. The House subjected the Senate to mind-numbing repetition for 22 hours.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/KamVTV/status/1220461301367037952?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220461301367037952&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witness-trump-critic-trump-trial-defense-brilliant-sophisticated-effective WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewsHour/status/1220056517510156298?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220056517510156298&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fschiff-admits-in-senate-trial-that-impeachment-about-stopping-trump-re-election WATCH: Rep. Adam Schiff: “What we’ve seen here is far more serious than a third rate burglary of the Democratic headquarters.” “Where is Howard Baker? Where are the people who are willing to go beyond their party to look to their duty?” https://twitter.com/ABCPolitics/status/1197629141522075648?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197629141522075648&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F471565-schiff-says-trumps-actions-go-beyond-anything-nixon-did POTUS called out Schiff for being the lying [insert word here] that he is. And in typical Trump fashion, he spoke the truth and did so with confidence. See for yourself… If Shifty Adam Schiff, who is a corrupt politician who fraudulently made up what I said on the “call,” is allowed to release transcripts of the Never Trumpers & others that are & were interviewed, he will change the words that were…
