YouTuber Elijah Daniel Sues Donald Trump for Being Blocked on Twitter

By  | 

President Donald Trump is known for his ~interesting~ Twitter practices, including blocking users on the regular. But his everyday pastime of hitting the block button has to stop because U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald ruled yesterday that the 71-year-old cannot block people on the social media site because of their political opinions, as it violates the First Amendment.

“The blocking of the individual plaintiffs from the @realDonaldTrump account because of their expressed political views violates the First Amendment,” she writes. “Because no government official is above the law and because all government officials are presumed to follow the law once the judiciary has said what the law is, we must assume that the President and Scavino will remedy the blocking we have held to be unconstitutional.”

So, how does this ruling apply to Elijah Daniel? President Trump blocked the YouTube star on Twitter back in 2012 because he continuously wrote, um, interesting notes as replies.

A few hours after he sent the first tweet, the 24-year-old let his followers know that he’s not joking around and is actually going to hit DJT with a lawsuit over being blocked.

Leave it to Elijah, former Mayer of Hell, Michigan, to literally sue the freakin’ president.
