Hasn't Trump read Elonis v. United States?

Apparently, Trump and El Chapo are in a bit of a Twitter spa (from TMZ):
Trump is reacting to a tweet reportedly made by El Chapo's son, in which he blasts Trump for saying El Chapo is "everything that's wrong with Mexico."
The tweet was written in Spanish, with the rough English translation, "Keep f***ing around and I'm gonna make you swallow your bitch words you f***ing whitey milks***tter (that's a homophobic slur)."
Trump tells TMZ he's not backing down, saying, "I'm fighting for much more than myself. I'm fighting for the future of our country which is being overrun by criminals." He adds, "You can't be intimidated. It's too important." 

So Trump called the FBI.

I wonder if he has read Elonis.

In more important news, President Obama commuted a bunch of drug sentences.

Paula McMahon covers one of the local defendants who was on the list.

Trump is all Bullshit, I don't think he understands these guys are dead serious.

Can I ask you to change "In more important news" to "In news" or at least "In important news." Trump is not important and is not news. He is a side show of his own making. He is not actually running for president. He is making a scene for the purpose of keeping his face and name, and thus his brand, on TV. This is nothing but shameless marketing for profit.

Can you imagine when Trump starts appointing judges?

Twitter spa. A brilliant concept. You check into a spa. Start with a foot massage as you relax in a chair, your twitter account on your iPad and on the local TV screens. You tweet "i wish I had some fresh squeezed mango juice and a gluten free muffin" and a twitter spa assistant comes running in with your juice and muffin.
The spa sells selected ads to your twitter feed to advertisers and earns additional revenue beyond your spa services. Advertisers get targeted marketing to spa users. By Jove Magoo, you've done it again!
Twitter Spa. Brillant. Just brilliant. I am in awe.
