President Donald Trump has apparently “blocked” one of his Republican challengers on Twitter.
On Tuesday, Trump bullied his GOP rivals on Twitter, declaring, “I should be able to take them.”
….Another is a one-time BAD Congressman from Illinois who lost in his second term by a landslide, then failed in radio. The third is a man who couldn’t stand up straight while receiving an award. I should be able to take them!

One of the people mentioned by the commander-in-chief was former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL).
But Walsh couldn’t see it, because he’d been “blocked” by Trump on Twitter.
“Luckily Trump hasn’t blocked my team (yet) or I wouldn’t have known the madman in the White House is taking shots at me,” Walsh tweeted.
A federal judge ruled Trump was violating the First Amendment by blocking people on Twitter. That decision was unanimously upheld by a three-judge appeals court panel. But Trump has refused to comply with the court order while appealing.
Walsh vowed a change of policy if he’s the next president.
“As President, I’ll never block the American people on Twitter. That’s nuts,” he said.
Luckily @realDonaldTrump hasn’t blocked my team (yet) or I wouldn’t have known the madman in the White House is taking shots at me.
1. As President, I’ll never block the American people on Twitter. That’s nuts.

Impressive. Joe Walsh has already gotten under Donald Trump's skin. Two days after Walsh announced, Trump's blocked him on Twitter. Fortunately the rest of us can read Joe at @WalshFreedom, and you can help him if you wish at https://t.co/tuRuC9LKAX.

Trump’s bizarre Georgia play: GOP in chaos just so he can show he’s still the boss
Despite having begrudgingly allowed the General Services Administration to issue an "ascertainment" that Joe Biden is the president-elect and the normal transition process could begin, Donald Trump is still relentlessly flogging the lie that the election was stolen by the Democrats and he is the rightful winner. And he's sending out a daily fusillade of emails begging for money, with the alleged goal of overturning the results.
Senator proposes bold new agenda to prevent ‘another right-wing authoritarian’ even worse than Trump
Warning that a failure to deliver real material gains to the U.S. working class could lay the groundwork for another "right-wing authoritarian" to seize power in 2024, Sen. Bernie Sanders is imploring the leadership of the Democratic Party and the incoming Biden administration to aggressively pursue an agenda that confronts powerful special interests, improves people's lives, and exposes the phony populism of President Donald Trump and his Republican allies.
Trump supporter accused of voter fraud invited to apply for a pardon — in gratitude for proving ‘how hard voter fraud is’
On Wednesday, writing on Twitter, Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman invited a Trump supporter accused of voter fraud to apply for a pardon if convicted — in thanks for showing Pennsylvania voters, and Republicans around the country, how difficult it is to commit voter fraud.
The case centers on a man in Forty Fort, Luzerne County, who allegedly filled out an absentee ballot application for his deceased mother with the intention of casting a second ballot for President Donald Trump, in her name. He faces up to 10 years in prison if found guilty.
