Trump is now the leader of the republican party (as happens when one is elected POTUS as the candidate of the party). He also is the most successful troll in the history of trolling. Anyone in Washington who disagrees with him - regardless of their party affiliation - will be openly shamed and abused by the Troll in Chief. When he tells the GOP to jump they will ask only how high. When he says in January that he wants this bill killed they will ask only how quickly.

Being as this type of bill potentially challenges his god-given right to make money, he will want it killed. Just as he wants "new libel laws" that allow him to throw journalists into prison who cover him in unfavorable ways.

The media coined a phrase early in Bush's presidency. It was call 'mcjobs' and they went out of there way to 'explain' that even though X jobs were added most were 'mcjobs' and not 'real' jobs.

Can you cite an example besides your memory of what the "media" did? One link to "mcjobs" will do.

What part of " to lead government-wide efforts to identify propaganda and counter its effects." don't you understand?

They are not restricting anyone's right, even foreigners such as the Russian troll factory to lie their asses off.

What they are doing is the same thing anyone else would do if repeated lies and falsehoods were put forth: countering the lies.

Oh, and speaking of the Ministry of Truth, Putin has that covered. He has made it illegal for Russian mothers to speak out about their son's deaths in Ukraine, including contacting other mothers to form groups and compare notes on how many soldiers Russia has lost during its invasion of Ukraine.

it wasn't until the US spent billions on the "war effort" that the mismanagement of The New Deal was undone even though FDR doubled the national debt.

And that New Deal led to the most prosperous period in US history, and FDR was elected president four times.

Call me when Donald Trump wins his fourth presidential election.
