Barbara Boxer, a Democratic Senator from California, is hoping that you help her send a message to the President – that according to the United States Constitution, the 1st amendment guarantees “freedom of the press.” Boxer took to Twitter to send the 1st amendment to Donald Trump, and she asking everyone on Twitter to do the same.
“Trump shot out press,” Boxer tweeted, referring to the recent unprecedented move by Donald Trump to restrict press coverage of a White House press gaggle. “Tweet him a copy of the 1st amendment, guaranteeing freedom of the press,” she wrote.
I just did. But I don’t think Trump is capable of understanding the 1st amendment, let alone the U.S Constitution.
