Twitter Protects Constitution???
Following the maxims laid down by his attorney and mentor, the late Roy Cohn, he's brushed aside the truth, he's brushed aside the letter of the law, he's refused to apologize, and he's launched counterattack after counterattack. "Where's my Roy Cohn?" Trump bellowed early in his presidency when Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed to protect him from his enemies.
