Head-scratcher of the day

The U.S. Presidential oath of office:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

I don’t see how one gets from there to “I have the absolute right to do whatever I want”.

Don’t feed the Russian trolls

At this point it’s reasonable to assume that anyone stirring things up on social media with pro-fascist, pro-nazi, pro-Trump, anti-liberal fulminations is probably a Russian troll being paid to inflame and distract. And it’s now incumbent on those folks to prove that they’re not.

Keep your eyes on the impeachable offenses, follow the money, and ignore the distractions. And don’t feed the Russian trolls.

What if. . . ?

The Republicans are going to pass this abomination of a tax bill come hell or high water (or both). Is it possible that, once they have the president’s signature, they’ll be ready to dump him? In which case, get on with the tax bill − it can be changed later, when sanity returns − and move on to impeaching Donny!
