Twitter Wars

Twitter reminds Trump that the free press is #NotTheEnemy

This Friday, President Trump took a step into the unknown.

We don’t yet know what it looks like when a White House publicly declares the American free press as “the enemy of the American people.” We got a slight taste of it during the Nixon era, but even Nixon wasn’t bold enough to make such a proclamation outside of the Oval Office.

Expectedly, the backlash was swift, and not only from journalists. Appearing on Meet the Press this Sunday, Senator John McCain slammed Trump’s words as being a slippery slope to dictatorship.

“That’s how dictators get started,” McCain said. “They get started by suppressing free press, in other words, a consolidation of power.”

Now, the Twitter hashtag campaign #NotTheEnemy has emerged, reminding Trump and his supporters of the vital work the free press does, sometimes resulting in the ultimate sacrifice.

Here are a few examples:

Some Trump supporters got involved as well:

    Along with every thing which seems to be building throughout this subject material, your perspectives are very radical. Even so, I beg your pardon, but I can not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it refreshing none the less. It appears to everybody that your remarks are actually not totally validated and in reality you are generally yourself not even totally confident of your argument. In any case I did enjoy reading it.
