A Bethel Park man joined a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday against President Donald Trump for blocking Twitter users from his account on the social media website.
“I firmly believe the president violated the Constitution by blocking me on Twitter,” said Joseph Papp, 42, in a statement provided by Columbia University’s Knight First Amendment Institute.
The free-speech group filed the lawsuit in the Southern District of New York on behalf of Papp and six others.
Papp, who could not be reached, discovered that Trump blocked him after he sent two replies to Trump’s Twitter post of his weekly address on June 3, according to the free-speech group. Papp’s first reply was harmless enough, saying only, “Greetings from Pittsburgh, Sir.” But the second one was accompanied by the hashtag #fakeleader and asked, “Why didn’t you attend your #PittsburghNotParis rally in D.C., Sir?”
In his statement, Papp said he has been a registered Republican for 10 years.
“I didn’t join this lawsuit for political reasons nor did I try to troll or provoke the president. I wanted to partake in the conversation,” Papp said.
---- Papp, you is a liar, Sir. You be like, pants on fire-----
