Chrissy Teigen Just Found Out It's Now 'Illegal' For Donald Trump To Block Twitter Users

Chrissy Teigen Just Found Out It's Now 'Illegal' For Donald Trump To Block Twitter Users

A huge reason why the constitution exists along with our rights in that constitution is to prevent the government from having too much power over the people.

Our ability to criticize the government and political figures however and whenever we want, and making sure they hear those criticisms and complaints is what makes America what it is.

An ever-growing popular form of communication is social media, a platform that Donald Trump used to his great advantage, basically trolling people online to get into the White House.

The thing about the internet is that you’re basically connected to the rest of the world, so if you have active profiles in your name, that means people can find you on those mediums and say pretty much anything you want to them. If you don’t like what they have to say though, you can block them and create a safe space for yourself.

But because he’s the President and all, and a public figure in a civil service position, the Supreme Court has ruled that he can’t block people from tweeting at him online without violating the First Amendment. 

Federal District Court Judge Naomi Reice ruled that because Trump’s @realdonaldtrump account has been given access to Dan Scavino, White House social media director, and they “exert governmental control over certain aspects” of the account, that Trump cannot block anyone from following the account.

“The viewpoint-based exclusion of the individual plaintiffs from that designated public forum is proscribed by the First Amendment and cannot be justified by the president’s personal First Amendment interests,” Buchwald wrote

Although Judge Buchwald hasn’t expressly ordered Donald Trump from unblocking the accounts he has already banned from following him and viewing his tweets, Jameel Jaffer, the Knight First Amendment Institute’s executive director says that it goes without saying that Trump should do the “right thing” and unblock everyone from his account.

“The position the Trump administration is taking is that the president is entitled to block people, and that the court lacks the ability to order him to do otherwise. The right thing for the president and his social media director to do would be to log into the president’s account and unblock everyone who has been blocked on the basis of viewpoint,” Jaffer said.

A spokeswoman for the Justice department has said that they “disagree” with the court’s decision and are contemplating their next move.

She has a long and storied Twitter career of calling Trump out on the social media platform.

Which, after 9 years, finally came to a head when Teigen sent out this tweet.

Apparently all of her other insults, clapbacks, and shutdowns didn’t hurt Trump as much as this tweet. Because it’s the one that finally caused him to block her.

Teigen found the entire situation hilarious, because Trump used a staunchly anti-Liberal platform to help get him elected, and, as we all know, liberals are often ridiculed for wanting “safe spaces”.

Teigen, like everyone else, saw the news that Trump’s blocking of people on Twitter was directly ruled as a violation of the First Amendment, so she offered up this Tweet in response.

Looks like she’s going to go back to her trolling ways, and there really isn’t anything the President can do about it, unless he wants to violate the very constitution he made an oath to uphold to the American people.

And people are very excited.

Even if Teigen reshot and re-uploaded the video for unbeknownst reasons (aka John being the in background and not wanting to be embroiled in any messy politic stuff).

Looks like the Teigen-Trump Twitter drama is back on, people. (source: nytimes)

This Conspiracy Theory About Kanye West Might Explain His Strange Trump Obsession

This Conspiracy Theory About Kanye West Might Explain His Strange Trump Obsession

Kanye West has been shocking and horrifying everyone with his support of Donald Trump, his extremely messed up statements about slavery and racism in general, and his absolutely wild tweets. No one is exactly sure what’s happening over in Calabasas, but it’s seemingly not good.

Twitter user and @Snowcone96 has a theory. If you get through the whole thing, you’ll either be completely on board or horrified by the lengths fans are going to in order to excuse Kanye’s behavior.

He starts by introducing us to artist Tremaine Emory who @Snowcone96 seems to believe is one of the few people in on an elaborate performance art piece by West:

Then @Snowcone96 shares tweets form Kanye about certain specific artists, suggesting they’re alluding to the current “project” that Kanye is doing.

Especially this piece by Joseph Beuys, where he locked himself in a room with a coyote (someone please call animal protection service on the past). But in Kanye’s piece (that @Snowcone96 is imagining) the coyote is racism?

Kanye has also referenced Andy Kaufman, who is known as a subversive comedian whose work often went to such uncomfortable places he’d be booed off stage. Kaufman was really more of a performance artist than a comedian. Lord knows, a lot of what Kanye has been doing is extremely uncomfortable, but there’s no proof any of it is a performance. Unless you believe @Snowcone96:

There are also references in Kanye’s tweets to “the prestige,” which is also the name of a film. In the film, the prestige is pulling off a magic trick so incredible no one can figure out how you do it. Both Kanye and Emory have been making references to the movie, it seems, and Emory has also mentioned Kaufman.

It’s all ART. ART!! But @Snowcone96 has no idea why or what the ultimate purpose is, nor does he seem to have a clue as to why Kanye would be sowing so much hurt and discord to promote some art idea.

Also, his ideas are ripped off from Reddit:

That’s okay. Kanye’s new album would have to be absolutely transcendent to cut through this mess, and in my opinion, Kaufman is overrated.

Trump Planted A Tree With The President Of France And It Got Weird Fast

In the opinion of some, Donald Trump can be an extremely awkward human being. This is especially on display when he hosts a world leader, and the two are thrust in front of a million cameras capturing the interactions.

It can be very, very awkward.

Like in this clip where he seems to be ignoring Angela Merkel’s suggestion of a handshake:

Or when he tries to hold his wife’s hand during a press event:

At the moment, Trump is being visited by French president Emmanuel Macron. It’s been interesting, to say the least.

And Macron is just smiling through it as best he can:

As a gift to mark his visit on Monday, Macron gave the Trumps an oak tree, which they then ceremoniously planted together on the lawn of the White House:

The pics from the event look…unique?

It was obviously memed immediately:

Some thought the tree was a symbolic troll from Macron, because of Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement.

There’s just a lot going on.

Soon you will be free to go home, Macron. Just grin and bear it.

Everyone Is Joking About The Sketch Of The Guy Stormy Daniels Says Threatened Her About Trump

Stormy Daniels appeared on The View Monday and released a composite sketch of the man she alleges threatened her in a Las Vegas parking lot. Daniels has revealed intimate details of her alleged affair with Donald Trump, and the money she was reportedly paid as an agreement for silence. Because of Daniels, Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen was raided and is being investigated by the DOJ. The idea that she might be threatened by hired muscle is all too real.

Daniels alleges the man saw her infant daughter in the back of the car and said, “That’s a beautiful little girl, it would be a shame if something happened to her mom. Forget about this story, leave Mr. Trump alone.”

She then shared the composite sketch of her memory. She says the man’s face was “burned in her memory.”

She comments that the man was well-dressed and she remembers him as being “kind of handsome.”

Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said they’re now offering a reward of $ 100,000 for any information that might lead back to this guy, though they imply Trump  or someone on his team was the one who sent him.

People have a few ideas of who the mystery man might be:

If not Tom Brady, he looks like a lot of other fellas in show biz:

And I know what you’re thinking, but Mark Hamill has an alibi:

Could it have been The Mooch?

But it always comes back to Tom Brady:

While $ 100,000 is an enticing sum, it’s not enough to cover the costs of actually besmirching Tom Brady’s name. Do not report him unless you’re sure.

Jimmy Kimmel Fights Tears As He Calls Out Trump In Plea Against Gun Violence

Despite the fact that Cruz was reported to authorities several times, and was even not allowed to bring a backpack to school after making threats and jokes about committing acts of violence, Donald Trump responded to the shooting by saying that Cruz just needed to be reported to the authorities…more.

Trump chalked the act of violence up to “mental illness,” which, in my opinion, is par for the course for NRA-backed politicians whenever someone commits an act of terrorism who isn’t an immigrant or Muslim. Despite the fact that Trump seemed to be disturbed by Cruz’s mental illness that may have led him to murder 17 high schoolers, Trump still revoked a law implemented by Obama that would halt the sales of firearms to the mentally ill.

Many people were underwhelmed by Trump’s response to the shooting, saying that it was unfair to put the onus on children and school administrators, especially when Cruz’s behavior was reported several times.

Some pointed out that although Trump is quick to tweet out anti-Islamic fake news stories, he’s not so quick to confront the elephant in the room: there have been an overwhelming amount of mass shootings and acts of terrorism that are carried out by U.S. citizens – the majority of them white males.

Late show host Jimmy Kimmel responded to Trump’s reaction to the shooting and echoed the sentiments of many Americans: that the lack of stricter gun regulations are largely contributing to the string of violent attacks on civilians in our nation.

Kimmel’s big gripe was Trump and many GOP lawmakers’ gut-reaction: which is to blame “mental illness” and not gun laws on the attack.

“You like to say this is a mental health issue but one of your very first acts as president, Mr. Trump, was to actually roll back the regulations that were designed to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill. You did that. Your party voted to repeal the mandates on coverage for mental health. So, I agree, this is a mental illness issue because if you don’t agree we need to do something about it, you’re obviously mentally ill.” 

He also called out the lack of any real action being taken by certain politicians…

Something that New York Daily News called attention to this past Valentine’s Day when they revealed what all of the politicians are getting paid from the NRA for their support of the organization.

Former presidential hopeful Marco Rubio issued a canned non-response after the shooting in the school, acting as if it was something he couldn’t have at least helped to prevent.

But people reminded him of his affiliation with the National Rifle Association.

From 1999 until now, Rubio’s reportedly made $ 3.3 million from the group.

When Kimmel had finished calling out Trump and other lawmakers for their lack of action, he urged viewers to visit everytown.org. The site helps put people in touch with their local politicians and be vocal about the changes they want to see in US gun law.

Florida Sheriff of Broward County, Scott Israel, also called out lawmakers insisting that stricter gun regulations be written into law. He specifically pointed out Trump’s decision to allow the mentally ill to purchase firearms.

Trump Released The Memo That Was Supposed To Discredit The FBI And People Are Freaking

Donald Trump is being investigated for possible collusion withe the Russian government during the election. Everyone suspects he loves Putin far more than he loves the U.S. Either that or a certain rumored Pee Tape is hanging over his head?

Trump has seemingly been trying to fight the allegations by firing investigators and bringing up Hillary Clinton. The GOP, in particular Republican David Nunes, is also working to support his cause. A group of Republicans have been cooking up a “memo” that states the FBI is biased against their president. Thus, any information they gather is false. Presto, change-o, innocence!

The memo was released on Friday to Fox News and the Washington Examiner. It argues that the Steele dossier was what first directed the FBI to start tracking Trump’s campaign advisor Carter Page. However, the FBI has been investigation Page since 2013, and argue that the memo is just choosing a series of details without further context to try and discredit the DOJ and FBI. They think Nunes hasn’t even read the dossier.

Trump will possibly use it as an excuse to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who is overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller as he investigates Trump’s connection to Russia. Perfect.

Okay, that’s not a lot! It’s not certain which way the wind will blow, but people are already tearing through this thing, hashtagging their spree on Twitter with #MemoDay.

Most just can’t believe that the president is undermining his democracy. To which, I ask, have you been unconscious the last 12 months?

Even Jeff Sessions seems disturbed by it:

Most don’t even see what the memo is supposed to be proving, except what was already known—Carter Page is a suspected spy.

And many pointed out that in 2016, the only person the FBI really took a swing at was Hillary Clinton:

And others are wondering why the memo doesn’t address some of the pressing Russian issues in Trump’s life:

And then there are the JOKERS (bless them):

Donald Trump Is Reportedly Both 'Obsessed' With And 'Terrified' Of Sharks

Okay, so adult film star Stormy Daniels alleges she slept with Donald Trump while he was married to Melania Trump. She gave a full account of the experience according to her to In Touch Weekly, and it’s about as depressing as you can imagine. The salaciousness isn’t even terribly salacious!

But there is one part of Daniels’ account that people are loving.

The man sitting in the White House is allegedly really, really scared of sharks:

The second time Daniels met Trump, she claims he was watching Shark Week on the television. The conversation turned to the ocean’s deadly predator.

The Donald reportedly told her, “I donate to all these charities and I would never donate to any charity that helps sharks. I hope all the sharks die.”

“He was like riveted. He was like obsessed. It’s so strange, I know,” said Daniels.

Sharks are very scary, but humans are far more dangerous to to them than they are to us. In fact, shark species have been decimated by human shark-hunting ever since the film Jaws was released and sacred people right out of the water. It’s a pretty serious problem for the ocean eco-system—not that Trump gives a crap about the Earth or logical thinking.

People are very interested in his very specific and unnecessary phobia:

It also turns out that Trump’s Twitter account has lot of shark hate in it, too:

He is haunted by sharks at every turn—he even tied them in with the threat of nuclear war at one point? Maybe if we tell Trump that sharks will get him if he starts a nuclear war, it’ll hold him back.

One last fun tidbit is that Trump allegedly told Daniels that he’s afraid if he cuts his hair, he’ll lose all his power:

That could have been a joke, but who knows at this point.

People Are Mocking Trump For Seemingly Forgetting The National Anthem

In Trump’s view, the peaceful protest is disrespectful to our very nation, rather than part of a long history of trying to change the country for the better through demonstration:

The Daily Dotreports that Trump made a big stink about his own love of flag and country right before going to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta to kick off the national championship game between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama.

But when it came time to actually sing the anthem, things didn’t go so hot.

It kind of seems like Trump doesn’t actually know the song?

Maybe he just doesn’t know where he is, or he’s thinking about the two scoops of ice cream waiting for him at home in front of the TV and the warm blare of Fox News.

Maybe he was disoriented because he was reportedly booed as he entered the arena. At certain points, he gave up on singing entirely:

People couldn’t help but point out the hypocrisy of the president seemingly not even bothering to prepare for this public event where he would surely be scrutinized:

The National Anthem is a long and complicated song, and most people don’t know the whole thing by heart. But when you’re a nationalistic president who is constantly berating people about their levels of patriotism, people certainly expect you to show up prepared.

Trump Said His 'Nuclear Button' Is Bigger Than North Korea's And You Can Guess How People Reacted

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on his first day back in Washington after spending the holidays at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. He attacked the Department Of Justice, announced that he’d be holding some bizarre fake news award show next Monday, and that’s just the start. 

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump responded to claims by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that he keeps an armed nuclear button on his desk in the only way Donald Trump could… 

Yes, the leader of the free world just said that his “nuclear button” is “much bigger and more powerful.” And just in case you were wondering, it “works,” even at 71 years old. 

North Korea has pursued a nuclear weapons program since the end of the Korean War, and previous presidents have enforced international embargoes to force the regime to the negotiation table. North Korea now claims to have missiles that could reach the continental United States, and the two new leaders have been in a war of words, with President Trump threatening “fire and fury” and calling Kim Jong Un “little rocket man.” 

Yes, the Internet knows what Donald Trump is insinuating. And many users were unimpressed given the seriousness.

Others seemed to get a laugh out of the tweet. 

Some users allured to the claim that President Donald Trump has a red button on his desk that he uses to have coca cola and snacks delivered to his desk. 

What do you think of the President’s nuclear button?

This Third Grader's Plan For Dealing With Donald Trump Has The Internet Divided

Adults aren’t very good at dealing with their problems, but third graders apparently have it all figured out. Kelly Cohen, a reporter for NBC Washington, recently took to Twitter to share a piece of homework reportedly from one of her friend’s third grade students. 

You can probably guess why she had it hanging in her apartment… 

Some users weren’t happy with the third grader’s perception of Africa.

While some pinned the blame on the media. 

Others focused on other aspects of the homework.
