Yeah but this particular idiot would even stretch those rules. If you were to design limited executive powers with Trump in mind, then you have to build in a time and place for romper room.
It's time for adults to step in. This is getting beyond ridiculous.
Yeah, and as an adult, its time for me to step in on you.
Look at the actual facts, clown: all Trump has done is roll back and/or limit the powers of the executive branch by example, in word and deed. Do you even know what the CRA is? Do you know how many times Trump has let Congress use its CRA power compared to other presidents? Hint: so far its 15 times(perhaps 17 depending on nuance)....to 1, all time. That's right, Trump has allowed Congress to override the executive branch 15 times...to it happening 1 time since the CRA law was created, 20 years ago.
How the F is that not limiting executive power, on it's F'ing face? An EO, that says that each department cannot create a new reg without killing two others? What is that too difficult for you to comprehend? That literally means that the executive branch, by acting on anything, self-reduces its power.
You clearly don't know your history. How about we start with Jefferson demanding that Aaron Burr be prosecuted, and threatening to impeach the Chief Justice of the SCOTUS, if he wasn't? How about Lincoln throwing the Mayor of Baltimore in jail with no habeas corpus? How about Teddy Roosevelt's entire presidency? Go read 1(one) F'ing book on that guy. How about learning anything about Woodrow Wilson? How about FDR's decision to intern the Japanese Americans? How about Eisenhower's decision to deport 5 million immigrants after WW2? How about LBJ's entire Viet Nam plan. Need I mention Nixon? Reagan is Trump is Reagan, but Trump has the chance to be even better. Every day that goes by confirms this.
Your ignorance of executive power exercised by other presidents is only outdone by your refusal to consider what Trump is doing...in the context of what Obama did.
Get. A. Grip. Your butthurt over Trump winning, making me right, and you wrong, again, isn't an agenda item for THIS country.
