President Donald Trump’s recent (most recent) testing of the censorship waters is disturbing in a by-now-familiar way, combining the hallmark elements of the president’s political style: ignorance, stupidity, pettiness, and malice.

It is not entirely surprising that the president doesn’t quite know what the FCC is or what it does.

God help us all if he ever gets interested in the Federal Reserve or the Department of Energy.
