Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection (ICAP) filed a friend of the court brief in support of the lawsuit challenging Trump’s ability to block opponents from his @realDonaldTrump Twitter feed.

“False impression that political leaders are adored by the public is critical to warping the public’s understanding of how those leaders are really viewed by the public and, in turn, to quashing democratic impulses,” they wrote.

In the 26-page brief, the legal scholars argue Trump has violated the First Amendment rights of critics he has blocked from commenting on his account.

  1. Not sure why blocking someone from hisbl personal feed is against the First ammendment (it’s up to Twitter to make rules for their own, private, platform, if the rules allow someone to block, then anyone can). But it just reminds us how weak Trump is, how he can’t stand the tiniest bit of criticism, just like Obama before him

  2. Gold vanity. The man with too much versus the public with too little.

    Feudal neat time. The Trump show continues. Ringling Brothers never thought ever an act greater. The cool is too cool for words. 140 characters at a time.
