Sarah 3 Name says unnamed 'legal scholars' gave Trump permission to subvert the Constitution



Sarah Sanders says unnamed ‘legal scholars’ gave Trump permission to subvert the Constitution on citizenship

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Wednesday insisted that “legal scholars” have given President Donald Trump the green light to end birthright citizenship even though it’s a right guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.

During an interview on Fox & Friends, host Brian Kilmeade pointed out to Sanders that many critics of Trump see the move as a “xenophobic, racist quest to change America.”

“I’m not at all surprised that the media and Democrats, which sometimes can be one in the same, would overplay their hand in the way that they’re doing,” Sanders replied. “The reason we’re in this predicament is because Democrats in Congress have failed to do their job. And the president is going to look at any way possible that he can find legally and constitutionally to make sure that we’re doing everything we can.”

“Can he used an executive order or does he have to go through Congress?” co-host Ainsley Earhardt wondered.

“There are a number of legal scholars who certainly think he can,” Sanders insisted. “Again, the president is going to take whatever powers he has to protect our borders and to protect our country.

4. Damn, beat me to it.

Y'know, I can be an anonymous legal scholar. I took two paralegal courses and know how to Google and use FindLaw...

3. Sarah Slanders

When she speaks it like's a snake unhinging his jaw to swallow its prey. Considering what she swallows her digestive system must be a frightening scene.

9. Such nonsense.

There are no "legal scholars" giving him this advice. No doubt his buddy Alan Dershowitz would even scoff at the whole stupid assertion.

Oh, and last time I looked the republicans have had complete control of both houses of Congress for the last several years and have had the presidency for the last two. Democrats are sidelined and powerless to stop the republicans from doing whatever they want.

I am hoping against hope that next Tuesday is a really bad day for this WH.

12. So now Executive Orders are okay?

Remember when Obama used Executive Orders to carry out legal functions that the government had committed itself to because Republicans refused to do a goddam thing? Oh, it was the end of the Republic! Now, Trump can't get jack shit done even with a friendly Congress, so it's time to shit-can the Constitution.

"What are 'obvious conclusions from Sanders' remarks that the media won't dare to draw'?"

Correct, gratuitous. You have control of the board.

"Let's finish Trumpian Numbskullery for two thousand, Alex."
