Of all the things that have been enjoyable about the first seven months or so of the Trump presidency, one of the best is the speed at which Donald Trump has destroyed his predecessor – the “Constitutional Law Professor” – on constitutional grounds.
As The Washington Times points out, Trump never took a single law class and doesn’t have a law degree. Yet in a short period of time, our President has managed to tear down executive orders, one by one.
Those executive orders – the “Dreamers” EO most recently – are patently unconstitutional. As were the executive orders that came down in an attempt to fix Obamacare, and the orders promoting transgenders in the military and abandoning the Defense of Marriage Act – all collapsing under the weight of the United States Constitution.
The same Constitution Mr. Obama spent years studying. The same Constitution that Mr. Trump hires people to study for him.
The same Constitution both men got elected to protect and uphold. The same Constitution Mr. Obama spray-painted graffiti all over and the same Constitution that Mr. Trump is — finally — rescuing.
This is the document that spawned the greatest, most powerful force for good on the planet. The document that – eventually – guaranteed women the right to vote and freed the slaves. The document that protects our vital right to speak and assemble and petition.
The same document that Barack Obama shredded whenever it suited his political motivations.
