Puny Little Bully in Chief Goes After Teenage Girl…

Puny Little Bully in Chief Goes After Teenage Girl… March 22, 2017

for making a little website mocking him (it feature kitten punching Trump).

Noting this on Facebook I received in reply the epitaph of the Christian Trumpified Right from a reader who was, I assure you, not speaking ironically:

“In France, the crime of insulting the president can carry a fine of up to 45,000 euros. A 21 year-old man was arrested for an unspecified insult against President Nicolas Sarkozy during a visit to a rough Paris suburb last year.

In Iran, a prominent journalist was recently sentenced to 16 months in prison for calling President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a megalomaniac. In pre-revolutionary Egypt, you could go to jail for four years for insulting Hosni Mubarak. It was even a jailable offence to insult foreign heads of state, as the late author Idris Ali learned when he wrote a novel critical of Muammar al-Qaddafi. In Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, you can be arrested just for sending an email with pictures of the president’s mansion. Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez has also used laws against insulting the president to silence his critics in the media.

And the list goes on.

Our President Trump has every right to abolish a game that encourages making fun of him.

Kudos for a well deserving President who is worthy of RESPECT!
