If Trumpcorp really thinks he can violate the 1st amendment maybe its really time to look into the 25th amendment- not that Pence would be any better, Whats worse a lot of his base would go along with him and not see a problem.

President Donald Trump today suggested that the Federal Communications Commission should challenge an NBC license because of “fake news.” “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License?
