Closing Thought–06May19

Remember back during the 2016 election when the conspiracy floating around with those mental midgets that Obama would not leave office and that he wanted more time and would find a way to extend his presidency?

I know that was a life time ago but does anyone remember?

I ask because of something I read today…..

Article Two of the United States Constitution states that the president “shall hold his office during the term of four years”—but President Trump is apparently interested in making an exception. On Sunday, the president retweeted Jerry Falwell Jr.’s call for “reparations” for the Russia investigation to be made to the president, in the form of a term extension. “Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as pay back for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup,” the Liberty University president tweeted. The Trump retweet came after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressed concern that Trump would refuse to accept the results of next year’s election if Democrats had a narrow victory, the Hill reports.

In a tweet later Sunday, Trump complained that two years of his presidency had been “stollen” by the investigation, Politico reports. “Despite the tremendous success that I have had as President, including perhaps the greatest ECONOMY and most successful first two years of any President in history, they have stollen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back,” he said. The “stollen” typo was later corrected.

Two things that made me chuckle…..one these people do not know the first thing about the Constitution and two these fools are the most hypocritical bunch.

Does this president have any idea what he is doing to this country and to the rule of law and the Constitution?

Anybody that supports this stupidity and the person behind it can NO LONGER claim to defend the Constitution and should remove it from their coat pockets where it waits to be used as a prop.

  1. Your national obsession with that ancient constitution never fails to interest and amuse me. It has been sidetracked so many times. I would suggest it is time for a re-write.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I agree we need a re-write. Some parts have been totally ignored, some twisted out of shape and some parts strictly adhered to to the letter

    2. A re-write would take more than we can muster……plus the ratification would take 3/5 of the states and they are still trying to pass the Equal Rights Amendment……it was written to be a lasting document. But I agree it is beyond time for a re-write….chuq
