The January 6th riot was a bleak moment, one that should have never happened, though it was no worse than the Black Lives Matter riots that shook virtually every major city across the United States in 2020.

YouTube feels as though he should remain silent. The interview was deleted. What happened to freedom of speech? The freedom of the press?
It would appear that YouTube is willing to ditch these vital rights so long as it scores brownie points with the President.
