    Trump threatens to revoke NBC’s broadcasting license for reporting he wants tenfold increase in nukes

    President Donald Trump angrily lashed out at NBC News over its report that he wanted to dramatically increase the United States’ nuclear arsenal by threatening to go after the network’s broadcasting license.

    “With all of the Fake News coming out of NBC and the Networks, at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License?” Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning. “Bad for country!”

    The president also said that NBC “made up a story that I wanted a ‘tenfold” increase in our U.S. nuclear arsenal,” which he described as “pure fiction, made up to demean.”

    1. The way this is shaping up the DNC will be able to elect any

    hawkish, corporate neoliberal they want.

    Guess I’ll vote for Jill Stein again if Bernie won’t sign on to a third party.

      4. Which would explain exactly why NBC is willing to use up some political capital

      to bash Trump in this particular manner.

        6. Probably right.

    2. Maybe it's time for the presstitutes to get some testicular fortitude and

    broadcast – loud and clear – that he doesn’t get to tell the fucking press what to do.

    And while they’re at it, they should also tell him and his moronic DOJ in no uncertain terms to immediately halt all the crap with RT.com and Sputnik because not only is it just stoopid, it can potentially endanger the lives of American journalists abroad.

    Idiots.

    3. "…at what point is it appropriate to challenge their License?"

    At various points beyond the borders of the US of A, ya loser, coward, fake patriot. (Meaning Trump, of course, and not the OP).

    5. He's not only a moron, he's dangerously unhinged.

    And it’s getting worse each day.

      7. I sure hope Morning Joe shows some courage on this and does use some of its

      political capital to tell The Donald in polite terms to go play on the freeway.

      This ride is getting rougher by the day

    8. I'm wondering if the deep state has allowed Trump in office in part…

    to discredit populism and to send a message to voters:  “You have no choice but to vote for our candidates because the alternative is much worse!”
