On January 20th, 2017, a new era will begin: Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the Untied States of America. This man has demonized the press, threatened to sue media institutions when he took issue with reporting, banned reporters from his campaign, called them names as only a sixth-grader would do on the playground, and basically continues to take a huge, runny, dump on the First Amendment. All of that while trying to ascend to the highest office in the land.
We here at Hunting For Thompson, while hidden away in an undisclosed bunker, hold no ill-conceived faith that our Fourth Amendment Rights will be given even a passing thought after January 20th, 2017.
