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.

‘Your hair is fabricated’: Trump blasted as a ‘dictator desperate to hold onto power’ after his ‘admission of guilt’ tweet
President Donald Trump was clearly fixated on the impeachment inquiry, with his official Twitter account blasting out a dozen different attacks into his administration's solicitation of foreign election interference.
Trump started his morning on Twitter with a traditional Veterans' Day welcome but quickly began tweeting about the vaping industry, the election loss by Gov. Matt Bevin (R-KY), one day after a Trump rally and who won the Schwab Cup golf tournament.
But impeachment was clearly his obsession on Monday.
Shifty Adam Schiff will only release doctored transcripts. We haven’t even seen the documents and are restricted from (get this) having a lawyer. Republicans should put out their own transcripts! Schiff must testify as to why he MADE UP a statement from me, and read it to all!

‘Vote my conscience on Donald J Trump’: Neil Young seeking US citizenship to vote in 2020 but marijuana use causes problems
Canadian music legend Neil Young says he has applied for US citizenship to be able to vote next year, but his use of marijuana is complicating things.
Young, who is 73, said on his website Friday that he had managed to pass a citizenship exam in which he answered honestly the questions posed to him.
He said he has to undergo another test because he smokes pot.
US authorities said in April that people seeking citizenship may not be involved in "certain marijuana related activities" even if even if they are legal in the state where they live or their country of origin, the singer-song writer wrote.
