Reince Priebus has gone and done it now. Today he went on TV with a message from President Trump and threatened the media with their WORST nightmare.
When ABC host Johnathan Karl asked Priebus about Trump’s threat to hold the media accountable, the Chief of Staff dropped a bombshell.
He said Donald Trump may change the Libel Laws so You can Sue the Lying Media.
Priebus told Karl, “I think it’s something we have looked at, and how that gets executed or whether that goes anywhere is a different story.”
It’s not only for their lies about Trump, either. Priebus thinks it’s time we crack down on the use of “anonymous sources” to push political agendas.
“I think this is a frustration of unnamed sources of things that the FBI has told me personally is complete BS, written in a newspaper article, in my office, one on one, ‘this, here, is not true.”
That’s a man with a mission right there.
Oh, and just in case y’all forgot Trump’s pledge back during the campaign, it went a little something like this…
Hey, I work in the media and I have seen how dangerous some of these guys are. Sure, the free press NEEDS protection, but these big guys combine those laws with armies of lawyers to make themselves untouchable. SAD.
If you think it’s time we hold them to account, then help spread Reince Priebus and Trump’s message and let’s make it happen.
