Rep. Bryon Donalds, R-Fla., said in a new interview he was "disgusted" by the recent rhetoric coming from the Biden administration about battling so-called coronavirus "misinformation" on social media.
"It's sick," Donalds told Fox News at Turning Point USA's Student Action Summit in Tampa. "I think Jen Psaki is forgetting what the First Amendment of the United States Constitution actually stands for … It says the government – the government, mind you, which includes the White House, which includes her – cannot infringe on free speech, period, full stop. Say no more."
White House press secretary Jen Psaki made headlines last week when she revealed the administration was flagging what it considers to be problematic Facebook posts jeopardizing the government's vaccination goals. Psaki also suggested those who are banned on one social media platform for "misinformation" should be banned from others as well.
