Trump blames constitution for chaos of his first 100 days

On his 100th day in office on Saturday, facing historically low popularity ratings, a succession of intractable foreign crises and multiple investigations of his links with Moscow, Donald Trump reminded the nation that 1 May was Loyalty Day.

The day is a US tradition dating back to the cold war, when it was a bolster to stop May Day becoming a rallying point for socialists and unionised workers, but for an embattled president learning politics on the job it has an added resonance.

In an interview with Fox News to mark the 100-day mark, he declared himself “disappointed” with congressional Republicans, despite his many “great relationships” with them.

He blamed the constitutional checks and balances built in to US governance. “It’s a very rough system,” he said. “It’s an archaic system … It’s really a bad thing for the country.”

3. 100 days ago

 

This fascist pig put his pussy grabbing hand on a Bible and swore to God and country that he would protect and defend the constitution.

That didn't last long, huh?

The lyin traitor should be impeached today!

5. That explains his irritability of late.

He waltzed into the White House on January 20th thinking his time had come. His coronation was at hand! In his mind, he'd issue orders and edicts and with no further ado, they would be enacted. Let it be said, let it be done. Didn't take too long to find out other branches of the government have power, too. So he has been pouting, whining and plotting ways to get around our system ever since. Stay vigilant. He has no intention of following the rules. He thrives on chaos and expects us to just accept it. In a pig's eye. He has no idea what happens when you rile up the peasants, but he is going to find out. Heh, heh, heh......

7. Whatever happened to "preserve protect and defend"?

Before posting this to a new discussion I did a search to see if someone had already done it, and this is the only one I found, and with just six replies. What we have here is the President of the United States flat out saying that the Constitution of the United States is "really a bad thing for the country", and no one seems to be batting an eye. It's like when he suggested a 2nd Amendment solution if Hillary won the election and appointed liberal judges to the Supreme Court and there was barely an eyebrow raised at the national level. Is it true that he can stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot someone and not suffer consequences?

10. I just emailed my Rep, Barbara Lee

Sent the following:

"The President of the United States just said on national television that the Constitution of the United States is "really a bad thing for the country", and no one seems to be batting an eye. I am ask you, Ms. Lee, as my esteemed representative in Congress, to please bat an eye on our behalf. It seems to me that declaring the Constitution to be "really a bad thing for the country" is a violation of the presidential oath. I will be looking for your response in the real world. No email response necessary."

9. No wonder his hands are small.




Pointing fingers so often in so many directions as he does will do that.
Trump wouldn't know personal accountability if it bit him on his ample ass.
