To those who admire Donald Trump's pushback campaign against political correctness, please note of how quickly his own inner thought cop leaps forth when his own fragile ego is poked.
"I'm going to open up our libel laws so when they write purposely negative and horrible and false articles, we can sue them and win lots of money," Trump said in a rally rant last weekend, without bothering to offer any examples of what he was talking about.
"We're going to open up those libel laws. So that when The New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when The Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they're totally protected."
In other words, Trump promises to pursue those who dare to use the First Amendment for what it was intended to protect: your right to criticize the powerful.
