    This shows us all how un-American many in the GOP have become. Feel free to relocate to Russia, China or North Korea, psychos.

    I heard that 90% of liberals want to turn America into a third world hell hole as fast as possible, but aren't savvy enough to realize it.

    See...? Aren't made up statistics fun? Yahoo news. They make the Huffington post look sane.

    Yahoo! didn't make anything up. It's an Esquire article that has a link to the actual Ipsos poll numbers.

    STFU! Esquire is even more ridiculous than the Onion!

    Did I do that right @AZCrazy ?

    Irrespective, it’s a sad reality that Republicans want to silence and filter out the media. Having a free press is a Constitutional right. Doesn’t matter if he doesn’t like what’s being said about him and his administration. His constant berating of media outlets that criticize him is dangerous and a waste.

    The Constitution is barely better than toilet paper to the GOP. Certainly it’s not as useful.

    Trump would wipe his but with the Constitution if it was gold plated. For now he just ignores it.

    Name the actions, (Other than this spurious poll) that have been taken by the right to limit free speech. Yet from the left we have:
    • College speech codes
    • "Hate" speech
    • Groups like Antifa, that physically attack people just because they want to speak to an audience. Fascism at its finest.
    • Shadow banning of right leaning web sites and blogs.
    • Banning of Alex Jones.
    • The tactics of going after conservative speakers, and destroying them. Obama using the IRS, and other agencies to attack and destroy his opponents.
    • Prosecution of Dinesh D'Souza for a minor campaign finance infraction, and sending him to prison, when he was the only such prosecution of that law in history. This came after he wrote "Obama's America."
    These just off the top of my head. Republicans may WANT to silence some in the media, but they recognize their right to speak, and generally try to meet those words with more persuasive words. You know, like the founders envisioned.

    Leftists want to silence people. And they act on that with every bit of power, and perceived power they can. This is undeniable.

    “Leftists” want to silent liars and people who promote and practice racism and profiling. So basically you and you deluded cult. Posting a list of lies doesn’t help your argument.

    Polls in general have become a joke.
    The devil is ALWAYS in the details.
    Both sides use them to support ridiculous assertions.

    Trump wanting to revoke press credentials, visciously attacking news outlets that don’t speak favorly of him, and publicly alienating certain reporters is not exactly recognizing their right to speak. Sounds more like....silencing people (something you just accused the Left of doing).

    The lies are mind numbing. We have never had someone lie as much as this President. The fact checker sites have a field day with the Donald Drumpf. His disciples just don’t care.
