The Latest from Mayberry: Two presidential candidates who don’t understand their own constitution

Donald Trump has been arguing that protesters in Chicago have trampled on his first amendment rights to free speech. Marco Rubio has been echoing partial support for Mr. Trump by expressing the same First Amendment sentiment. My reaction?

Two asswipes who don’t understand the constitution.

There is no state action i.e. action on the part of the government preventing Mr. Trump from putting on his rally If a bunch of noisy private individuals want to drown you out, as long as they are not using the property of the state to do it, then your First Amendment rights aren’t being violated.

Oh well, knowing the Washington media spin machine, the right wing yahoos will be using this talking point right into the Sunday morning funnies, ooops, I mean talk shows, and the noise should die down by Monday morning…..

…..‪#‎statism‬. You gotta love it ….
