Control Freak

Working for this guy sounds like a nightmare.

Volunteers on the mission to “Make America Great Again” are apparently chill with signing away their First Amendment rights.

According to a report from the Daily Dot, which got ahold of a leaked contract from Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, volunteers are forbidden from speaking ill of the real estate magnate or any of his family members—for life. The contract also forbids volunteers from jumping ship and working for another presidential candidate “should they change their minds.”

“For life.”  Sheesh.

To be accurate, their First Amendment rights are intact since the Trump campaign is not a governmental agency, and the First Amendment only restricts what Congress can do, not private citizens or corporations.  And as the article points out, the contract is laughably unenforceable.

Still, it’s like he gets his ideas from Kim Jong-un.
