Trump Administration Official Comes Out Against Freedom of the Press
First Amendment to the United States Constitution:
“No law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut.”
Just as Republican Bush administration official Ari Fleischer found out when told Americans they “need to watch what they say, watch what they do,” so Trump administration official Steve Bannon will find out that we little people in the opposition don’t take kindly to being told by the government to sit down and shut up.
The American people should say whatever they damned well please. Members of the press should say whatever they damned well please. This is still the United States of America.
