MSNBC is so bent on discrediting and trashing President Trump that now they are now snubbing the Constitution.

Thursday on "Deadline: White House," host Nicole Wallace and former Time editor and Obama official Richard Stengel decried the First Amendment and attempted to compare President Trump's language about the coronavirus to Chinese misinformation campaigns.

To make matters worse, Stengel at one point claimed that the First Amendment "doesn’t protect false speech about a virus or a false speech that endangers the health" of social media users.

After Wallace shared how worried she was about misinformation being spread about the coronavirus on social media, Stengel responded with this doozy:

Political speech is complicated. The First Amendment protects it. The First Amendment doesn't protect false speech about a virus or a false speech that endangers the health of your users. By the way, Facebook and Twitter have been taking things down, but they need to be even more vigilant about it and Google needs to be even more vigilant about what they prioritize in their search results. I mean, they need to prioritize factual information in their search results rather than emotional and inflammatory conspiracy theories that get people's eyes.
