Watch: Is Trump attacking free speech or is his free speech under attack?

Relatable

Sparks were flying on the “Dana” show today as guest host Lawrence Jones offered up Trump’s anti-NBC tweet for debate with panelists Allie Stuckey, Tracy Levinson, and John Gibson.

What’s the story?

President Donald Trump, angry over an inaccurate NBC report that claimed he wanted to increase the country’s nuclear arsenal by "tenfold," tweeted Wednesday, “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License?”

And then followed that up with “Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked,” later that same day.

But what about free speech?

Exactly. The First Amendment protects the freedom of speech, including that of the press. That said, doesn’t that freedom also apply to the president’s speech (or tweets, as the case may be)? Theoretically, both the media and the president have every right to say whatever they want to say -- right? What do you think?
