You're asking for suits against the Federal Government for civil rights violations thereby.

What possible value can that have for the nation as a whole?


WTH are you talking about?

Calling someone out for deception as Trump did regarding ABC and the fake "Syrian" explosions is not a civil rights violation. You don't make sense sometimes.


Fair enough. Allow me to clarify.

Freedom of the Press is a civil right guaranteed in Amendment I. President Trump is the head of the Executive Branch of the Federal Government. IF he chooses to answer questions from a member of the Press, and verbally assaults them in his response, there is a case to be made for a violation of Civil Rights.

Why should Mr. Trump do that? For mere satisfaction?


I'm going to my boss's office right now and cuss him out lower than a dog. By your definition, he HAS to listen to me. If anyone shows up to manhandle me while carrying me out the door of this office building, they are violating my civil rights.

Got it. I'll let you know how that works out for me.


Are you a member of the Press? Is your boss an official of city, county, State or Federal government?

If so, your example fits with mine very remotely. If not, it's just absurd.

They were arrested for breaking the law. When you are under arrest your kids don't go with you.


Seeking asylum is not against the law.


You're still pedaling the separated families BS.


Peddling BS? Mirror, mirror.



Yeah, and sneaking in someone's backyard so you can swim in their pool isn't a crime either. Sure....

What IS legal is walking to the front and knock so you can ask the resident household dad or mom if you can swim in their pool.

HUGE difference. One is illegal and the other is seeking permission. You don't just hop a fence and scream "Asylum" to gain entry.

Is this how you guys really? Seriously think?

Wait, so reporter can have rights, but POTUS does not?

Yes. They intentionally used that pic. Absolutely. Think about it. And, the reporter that confronted the president didn't even try to deny it, much less defend it.

I would guess it was an example of a mini "black swan event."

That is, unless someone did it to intentionally embarrass ABC (conspiracies people!)

POTUS does have rights, but he also represents the Federal government, which is Constitutionally restricted from inhibiting Freedom of the Press.

Particularly standing behind the Great Seal ...

It's a position of authority OVER YOU

Dude... He's the boss of the fricken United States. He's the boss's boss's boss. He's the boss of that house. Trump isn't doing anything anyone else couldn't do. If you start asking me BS questions... like the one you just asked, I cut you off and tell you how stupid you are... Can you sue me for it? No... It's that simple. You can't just make up BS laws that don't exist. Civil right my arse. That there was nothing to do with it. What that was, was simply disrespecting the president of the United Fricken States because someone's a pansy and wants to look badass in front of millions of people just so he can say that he 'let the president have it'.

That was lame on the reporters part. Self entitled little snowflakes.

I was referring to a comment made by another poster hoping that Mr. Trump would "go after" the Press more directly, emphatically, energetically, etc. Such activity is, in my opinion anyway, unbecoming a President of the United States, and could, depending on a LOT of independent factors, be nothing at all or it could be a landmark Civil Rights case.

The other thing I like is that he also went at Lindsey Graham. He clearly doesn't care about the do nothing establishment Republicans either.

Watch him just curb stomp this ABC reporter...

Love how he just straight up states his position on Syria / Turkey. No double speak...



ABC had already apologised about that.

As for the conversation, both Trump and the reporter could just be talking hearsay...what we do know though is that Trump is a pathological liar most of the time.
Erdogan and Trump discussed military action last December, so I'll do a bit of hearsay, and make the point that the Kurds were to be ousted after that bit of conversation....and I dare say that the media would have been doing their own research on that aspect already.

Dude, he's the boss of employees in the Executive Branch AND THAT'S ALL. He's not the "boss" of the Press or of any American citizen.

I understand that your opinion is that Trump is justified in just about anything he does, but that is not correct.

I'm not "making up BS laws that don't exist" bud. ANd I wasn't talking about what Mr. Trump said today to the guy from ABC, in fact, I'm on the record as appreciating that comment.

Another poster wants Trump to get even tougher with the Press, and down that road ARE civil rights violations despite what you or I might hold as opinions.

Then I do apologise. I misread. I also stated my disdain for any measures what-so-ever against the press. We don't need to be banning free speech no matter what's being reported. If that were the case, the Enquirer would have been sued years ago.

I also agree with your first post on the matter.

Wow, I am impressed with that.

I am so used to him going off like a drunk uncle that I didn't think he had it in him not to speak gibberish. If he can keep it up I will be an actual fan and not someone simply voting for him because the other side is even crazier.

Talk about punching them in the face with that.

For how much this guy is accused to lying, it seems that no lies are to be seen there.

And calling out ABC for that nonsense reporting....priceless.

Trump is the funniest President we have ever had. People better enjoy him why he is here because we will never see anything like it again. That guy has more fun being President than anyone ever did. That's why he only sleeps 4 hours a day.

Presidencies after his will be boring.
