Dangerous precedent. It is clear Trump has contempt for the Bill of Rights. Why do we need the first amendment, he wonders. We need to regulate the second amendment, as he has directed the DOJ to unconstitutionally do.
Look, I vehemently disagree with NFL protests. But if the NFL wants to allow it, they have every right to. We cannot pick and choose what can and cannot be peacefully protested. As disgusting as the Westboro Baptist Church is, I will defend their right to spew hate. I don't agree with it in any stretch of the imagination, but it is a slippery slope otherwise.
“I don’t know why they don’t take care of a situation like that,” Trump said. “I think it’s embarrassing for the country to allow protesters. You don’t even know what side the protesters are on.”
