    even if you don't agree to the president of your country , if you insult him/her in this way then you are insulting the country president , and you should be treated as traitor of the country and get jailed not just suspended .

    That's not freedom of speech/expression. That's just the opposite, It's oppression and you sound like you already live in N.Korea with this crap.
