Between his perceived mishandling of the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, his divisive focus on the NFL protests, his open feud with senior Republican Senator Bob Corker, and his continued tensions with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, President Trump has been receiving a lot of negative attention in the press lately. He's apparently so fed up with television networks like NBC that he's begun to openly question whether he should revoke their "network licenses."
With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License? Bad for country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2017
Network news has become so partisan, distorted and fake that licenses must be challenged and, if appropriate, revoked. Not fair to public!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2017
Putting aside for a moment that the licenses Trump is referring to do not exist, demonstrating just how little Trump knows about the subject, there's something else amiss with his line of thinking.
