Watch how fast the anti-free speech light bulb pops on in Keith Ellison’s head when talking Trump’s tweets

Rep. Keith Ellison is making the case for suspending free speech.

That is, if President Trump is doing the talking.

The Minnesota Democrat compared Trump to a “social media bully” and called on Twitter to ban him from its site following the president’s tweet attacking MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and its co-host,  Mika Brzezinski.

“My thought is that we have long, long known that Donald Trump abuses people on social media, much like any common social media bully,” Ellison told TMZ on Thursday. “The problem is he’s been doing it and he’s never had to pay a price for it.”

Ellison, who was the first Muslim to be elected to the U.S. Congress and was defeated in the race to chair the Democratic National Committee, went so far as to say Trump did not have a “right” to have a Twitter account.

“I personally think that Twitter, the company, should treat him just like any other social media harasser and snatch his account. I mean, it’s a private company; he doesn’t have a right to have a Twitter account,” Ellison said.

“And if he’s mistreating, misusing it and abusing people, serially, I think that he shouldn’t have an account,” he added.

According to Twitter, “when an account engages in abusive behavior, like sending threats to others or impersonating other accounts, we may suspend it temporarily or, in some cases, permanently.”

Last year, Twitter permanently banned former senior editor for Breitbart News, Milo Yiannopoulos, after he tangled with “Ghostbusters” star Leslie Jones.

Apparently, Trump’s choice of words in his tweet about Brzezinski “bleeding badly from a face-lift” constitutes abuse in Ellison’s world.

“This is a private sector business. He is abusing that service,” he went on.

“He is intimidating people, he is abusing women, and he shouldn’t have it,” Ellison concluded, obviously with no evidence to back up his own slander of accusing the president of “abusing women.”

Reaction to Ellison’s rhetoric was swift on twitter where the Democrat also tweeted about the social media company’s anti-bullying rules.
