In what has to be one of the more embarrassing moments of his career, CNN New Day anchor Chris Cuomo recently took to Twitter to school his audience on the language of the U.S. Constitution.  The only problem: clearly it was Cuomo who needed the refresher.

Jumping into an argument about hate speech, Cuomo said this: “hate speech is excluded from protection. dont just say you love the constitution… read it”

So, let’s do just that.  The exact text from the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights cover freedom of speech (that didn’t take long).  It says… “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
