Hustler president Larry Flynt called our President Donald Trump for creating a hostile environment for freedom of the press to exist in the U.S.

The long-time Donald Trump critic also said in a tweet that Trump’s panties were "in a bunch" about a particular issue every day, which made his “blood boil.”

In a note accompanying the tweet saying this, Flynt talked about the freedom of the press under other American presidents and said that although many of them were not open to the idea of press freedom, Donald Trump was more hostile than anyone else.

“If there is one thing that defines the American tradition and the success of our nation, it has to be the First Amendment, with its guarantee of free speech and freedom of the press.”

He also added: “Many American Presidents have been hostile to the free press. Nixon was notoriously bad; his band of “plumbers” even considered assassinating famed journalist Jack Anderson. But Donald Trump takes this hostility to a whole new level.”

Flynt also talked about how Trump’s frequent criticism and calls challenging a news organization’s license for reporting an “inconvenient truth” were “the mark of a banana republic autocrat, not an American president.”

The porn tycoon has locked heads with the president multiple times in the past, has offered $1 million in 2016 to anyone who was able to produce a scandalous recording of Trump who was then the GOP presidential nominee.

Flynt, citing his disgust over sexual assault allegations about Trump sought “verifiable video footage or audio recordings for use prior to the Nov. 8 election clearly showing Trump engaging in illegal activity or acting in a sexually demeaning or derogatory manner,” CNBC reported.

It’s not the first time Flynt has offered money to take down his political opponents. In 2007, he took out a full-page advertisement in the Washington Post that said: "Have you ever had a sexual encounter with a current member of the United States Congress or high ranking government official?" He also offered $1 million for evidence of such a tryst, providing a toll-free phone number and email to report it.

Recently, he published another advertisement in the Post soliciting for material that would help in the impeachment of Trump for $10 million.


Flynt charged him on multiple accounts, from “compromising domestic and foreign policy with his massive conflicts-of-interest global business empire” to “telling hundreds of bald-faced lies” to “gross nepotism and appointment of unqualified persons to high office.”

“Impeachment would be a messy, contentious affair, but the alternative — three more years of destabilizing dysfunction — is worse,” Flynt wrote. “ . . . I feel it is my patriotic duty, and the duty of all Americans, to dump Trump before it’s too late. ”
