Donald Trump Could Threaten U.S. Rule of Law, and Liberal Death Star clutching its pearls. Obama hasn’t threatened it. He’s destroyed it laughing all the way!
From The New York Times:
Donald J. Trump’s blustery attacks on the press, complaints about the judicial system and bold claims of presidential power collectively sketch out a constitutional worldview that shows contempt for the First Amendment, the separation of powers and the rule of law, legal experts across the political spectrum say.
Then they said “Interestingly, these concerns surrounding the presumptive GOP nominee are similar to those we have raised over the past 7+ years about president Barack Obama.” NOT REALLY! Had you going? No, I didn’t think so.
Attacks on the press? MMM, what administration actually tried to name a member of the press as a “co-conspirator” in a leak case? Which one deliberately played them as part of a scheme to sell its heinous Iran deal because they “know nothing?” Which one has been called out repeatedly as the “least transparent” in history?
Complaints about the judicial system? You mean like lecturing the Supreme Court at the State of the Union Address? Allowing its Justice Department’s attorneys to deliberately lie to a federal judge to facilitate an illegal amnesty that the president himself said over 20 times he did not have the authority to do before doing it?
Bold claims of presidential power? Like
- the afore-mentioned illegal amnesty?
- Using a federal regulation to make it easier for people with tangential connections to terror groups to receive refugee status or asylum in the United States?
- Gutting the 1996 welfare reform law by granting broad work waivers for work requirements of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families?
- Unilaterally lifting the Obamacare mandate for people whose plans got cancelled (after he spent a year repeating the pre-meditated lie that “if you like your health plan, you can keep your plan.”)?
- Allowing individuals to buy health insurance plans in 2014 that did not comply with a duly-enacted (although admitted done with trickery that he fully supported) statute, Obamacare?
- Extending the Obamacare delay until 2016—past the mid-term elections?
I could go on, but I think I’ve made my point.
