MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace: What right does Trump have to 'spread lies' about the pandemic on social media?


MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace suggested on Thursday that President Trump doesn't have the "right" to "spread lies" about the coronavirus on social media. "You know, I want to ask you why the social media companies don't have more power and authority at a time when it's a health crisis," Wallace said. "I understand that in the context of an American political election, you've got free speech to navigate, but what is the right to spread lies about a deadly pandemic? "I mean, political speech is complicated, the First Amendment protects it. The First Amendment doesn't protect false speech about a virus or false speech that endangers the health of your users."
