    • Government

The Heartland Institute's Donald Kendal, Jim Lakely, Cameron Sholty, and Chris Talgo present episode 293 of the In the Tank Podcast. The ITT crew revisits the topic of anti-conservative censorship on social media in light of the recent news of Facebook’s decision to continue to ban President Donald Trump. Afterwards, they discuss the recently announced ban on menthol cigarettes and why the government is allowed to act as a “nanny state.”
