Trump's Government of One

Un-effing-believable. Except with Dotard, not so.

Read it and see the "interpretations" as to what he really meant and on and on.

The guy is a joke.

Quote:
In late June, President Trump hosted a group of Native American tribal leaders at the White House and urged them to "just do it" and extract whatever they want from the land they control.

The exchange turned out to be an unusually vivid window into the almost kingly power that Trump sees himself as holding, and which he has begun describing with increasing bluntness. The scene was recounted by a source in the room and confirmed by another. The White House didn't dispute the story.

The chiefs explained to Trump that there were regulatory barriers preventing them from getting at their energy. Trump replied: "But now it's me. The government's different now. Obama's gone; and we're doing things differently here."

-~-

The tribal leader looked back at one of the White House officials in the room — perhaps somebody from the White House Counsel's office — and he said "can we just do that?" The official equivocated, saying the administration is making progress and has a plan to roll back various regulations.

Trump interjected again: "Guys, I feel like you're not hearing me right now. We've just got to do it. I feel like we've got no choice; other countries are just doing it. China is not asking questions about all of this stuff. They're just doing it. And guys, we've just got to do it."
From the same article, further down:

Quote:
A second source in the room objects vehemently to the suggestion that Trump was asking the chiefs to just start drilling and break federal law. The source said it was unremarkable "Trump speak" and what he meant by "just do it" was he was pushing for removing burdensome regulations from the Obama era.

-~-

This might seem like an extraordinary account for a U.S. president. But it's increasingly the norm: Trump considers himself above the traditions, limits and laws of the presidency — even when he's not, as in this case — and this trend is intensifying the longer he's in office.
And there's lots more. Read the whole story at: https://www.axios.com/trumps-governm...mpaign=organic

Oh by the way asshole Obama did not having his IRS to Target Conservatives, having his JUSTICE department use FAKE DNC DOCUMENTS to unmask US Citizens.

Here's a good one. What would our Founders think of Trump? You can go first TN, and then you Sab.

You didn't read the article. The whole point was Trump telling the NA leaders to break the law. Government of one.

And Obama isn't president.

And a quick question, you rightists always claim a birthright one-up on Canadians. Why do you think that you're a better person than a Canadian?

That's foolish indeed, when often others can see you much better than you can see yourself.
Thanks from Hollywood
