On “The Rubin Report,” BlazeTV host Dave Rubin talked about his own suspension from Twitter after he posted a comment about Dr. Jordan Peterson's Twitter suspension and what the social media platform's potential future owner, billionaire Elon Musk, had to say about this latest attack on free speech.
