Jake Tapper Blasts Trump For Threatening Media, Pulls Out Constitution On Live TV
Donald Trump spent his Wednesday attacking and threatening the media. Earlier Wednesday he threatened to revoke the broadcast licenses for NBC and other US news networks that air content critical of him. Later on that same day he complained about what the media covers.
Trump said from the Oval Office on Wednesday, “It is frankly disgusting the press is able to write whatever it wants to write.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper decided to respond to Trump’s attack by pulling out the United States Constitution on Wednesday’s episode of “The Lead.”
Tapper started off by quoting Trump’s attack on the First Amendment, then noting he had looked into it, as he displayed his pocket copy of the Constitution.
“Congress shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press,” the amendment reads.
“And you might want to look into it too, Mr. President,” Tapper said.
