“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”
— H. L. Mencken
If you have been wondering why Antifa have been given a free hand by the Trump administration to squash free speech all over the country, you now have your answer:
“The president responded that one or two campuses get all the publicity. (Trump last year raised the idea of revoking federal funds from the University of California at Berkeley following the violent protests against a speech by Milo Yiannopoulos.)
But he appeared to ultimately brush aside Kirk’s premise. He said the “vast majority” of people on campuses “want free speech.” …”
President Trump is a moron and a narcissist who either doesn’t know or care that even mainstream conservatives are being wiped off social media. He believes that he is solely responsible for his 2016 victory and doesn’t understand how technology allowed his supporters to drive the narrative online. That’s the reason why nothing has been done about the problem.
This was an interesting exchange. Being interviewed by a guy whose central claim is that there is an anti-conservative free speech crisis on college campuses, Trump casually rejects the premise, says the issue is "highly overblown," limited to a small number of campuses. pic.twitter.com/agDTBtPCjT

Note: Mizzou wasn’t some leftwing SJW hothouse like Berkeley or Kent State. It is an SEC university in the geographic center of the Heartland!
