Trump Tweets and the First Amendment

William Bennet Turner is a brilliant lawyer that represented the class of all TDC prisoners in the historic 1970’s suit against the Texas Prison System known as Ruiz VS Estelle. Ruiz was then a convict and Estelle was the head of the Texas Department of Corrections. Bill has long taught at Berkeley and recently wrote a fascinating article that points out among other things, that our widely despised president
is expanding the use of the 1st Amendment and freedom of speech, by Tweeting. After my own “Hitler Tweets” it seems only fair to repost Bill Turners writing. https://medium.com/@william.b.turner/free-speech-in-the-trump-era-b46b4dc3ed44
