Ohio Senator J.D. Vance spoke on ABC News with George Stephanopoulos when he was inappropriately silenced for his opinion on the Supreme Court.
During their discussion, Senator Vance said that if the Supreme Court gave an illegitimate ruling about President Trump firing a general, President Trump would have the right to deny the Supreme Court ruling.
This led to George Stephanopoulos saying, “You’ve made it very clear you believe the president can defy the Supreme Court.” before abruptly mutting Sen. Vance’s microphone.
George Stephanopoulos cut off Ohio Senator JD Vance on #ABC This Week because he made him look like the scum propaganda media he really is. ABC "news" is media manipulation at its finest. This show 🗑️ is a joke to non-liberals,y'all know that right? #BidenHarris2024

The folks at Fox News share more here:
Sen. JD Vance, R-Ohio, was shut down by ABC News “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos on Sunday after suggesting that former President Trump could defy “illegitimate” Supreme Court rulings.
“The Constitution says that the Supreme Court can make rulings, but if the Supreme Court ― and look, I hope that they would not do this ― but if the Supreme Court said the president of the United States can’t fire a general, that would be an illegitimate ruling and the president has to have Article 2 prerogative under the Constitution to actually run the military as he sees fit,” Vance said.
“This is just basic constitutional legitimacy. You’re talking about a hypothetical where the Supreme Court tries to run the military. I don’t think that’s going to happen, George. But of course, if it did, the president would have to respond to it. There are multiple examples throughout American history of the president doing just that.”
Stephanopoulos asked if the president must abide by legitimate Supreme Court rulings, and when Vance responded, the ABC News personality said, “You’ve made it very clear you believe the president can defy the Supreme Court.”
Vance attempted to respond by saying, “No, no, George …” but had his mic muted before the show went to break.
You saw a lot of news hosts cutting off their guests during the 2016 election; it looks like we are right back there.
These propaganda machines continue to highlight their blatant bias against conservative ideals.
