This is so dumb. Why is the left so obsessed with Trump’s Twitter feed?

The College Fix reports:

U. Maryland professor sues Trump because POTUS blocked him on Twitter

A University of Maryland sociology professor is suing President Donald Trump due to the chief exec blocking him on social media giant Twitter.

Philip N. Cohen said he was “shocked” upon seeing he was prohibited from viewing the president’s Twitter feed, despite the fact the block came after the prof’s tweet of “Corrupt Incompetent Authoritarian. And then there are the policies. RESIST.”

The Cornell Daily Sun reports Cohen and several others, including the Columbia University Knight First Amendment Institute, are suing Mr. Trump for allegedly violating their First Amendment rights — specifically because the president “has restricted them, because of their political beliefs, from participating in a public forum, accessing official statements and petitioning the government for redress of grievances.”

Cohen, whose parents were academics at Cornell, said it is “’surreal’ that Trump is personally blocking people ‘with his own fat little thumbs.’”

The First Amendment does not give anyone the right to force another person to read what they have written, nor does it prohibit a person from refusing to accept such materials. I can understand a professor of sociology not understanding this, but a group dedicated to the First should recognize this fundamental truth!

There must be no room left in the state of Maryland with a person of this large an ego living there.
