On House Floor, GOP Gag Mentions of Trump’s Conviction During Official Proceedings of the Chamber. Is this just cancel culture from GOP? Is it OK?

The floor of the United States House of Representatives is supposed to be a dignified place, where lawmakers refer to each other as “gentleman” or “gentle lady,” speak only to the presiding officer, and never engage in personally disparaging remarks against rivals, an offense known as “engaging in personalities.”

But what happens when the leader of one party is a convicted criminal whom a jury has found guilty of things that would normally be considered unmentionable on the House floor?

The history-making felony conviction of former President Donald J. Trump has raised some historic questions for the House’s rules of decorum, which have existed for centuries but can be bent to the will of whichever party controls the majority-driven chamber.

The Republicans who now hold the majority have used those rules to impose what is essentially a gag order against talking about Mr. Trump’s hush-money payments to a porn actress or about the fact that he is a felon at all, notwithstanding that those assertions are no longer merely allegations but the basis of a jury’s guilty verdict. Doing so, they have declared, is a violation of House rules.

This is cancel culture. Let the people decide!
This is fine cuz the GOP control house & set rules
This is unacceptable because its "prior restraint" in any other setting
Dems shouldn't have a forum to push lawfare
The GOP will do ANYTHING to shield Dear Leader from reality.
