It’s pretty sad that the President has to actually respond to such a ridiculous petition, but it has the benefit of making him look like a grown up teaching the basic fundamentals of Constitutional rights. And yes, it applies to legal residents, whether they are American citizens or not. Calling someone a stupid man during an interview is in poor taste, even if he is a stupid man, but odious, obnoxious speech is allowed in our country. That’s why we have characters like Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Bill Maher, etc. all over the radio and on television. Shut it off if you don’t like it-that’s what I do.
