Seriously. I don't know how a public figure can compare doctored videos to the Holocaust and not face repercussions for it. I'm all for freedom of speech, but freedom of speech does not imply freedom from consequence. If I yell "fire" in a crowded theater, and someone gets hurt in the resulting panic, I'm at fault. If McDonald's advertised their Big Macs as a weight loss product, they'd face punishment. If a politician inspires a riot or is caught in a flat-out lie, nothing happens. There's no consequence.
I'm not sure what the solution is, but it's still ridiculous.
