    In the new book A Very Stable Genius recounts Trump’s war with reading and understanding the US Constitution. Trump was asked to be on a HBO special on the Constitution and he only had to read small passage. No one else had trouble with reading the Constitution but Trump:

    .”....the president stumbled, trying to get out the words in the arcane, stilted form the founding fathers had written. Trump grew irritated. “It’s very hard to do because of the language here,” Trump told the crew. “It’s very hard to get through that whole thing without a stumble.” He added, “It’s like a different language, right?” The cameraman tried to calm Trump, telling him it was no big deal, to take a moment and start over. Trump tried again, but again remarked, “It’s like a foreign language.””

    ...

    “It’s Like a Foreign Language”: Donald Trump’s Encounter With the Constitution Did Not Go Well


    Can you imagine if Obama said this. But it makes sense for the semi-literate Trump. I would also guess that most Trumplicans would agree that the US Constitution is like a foreign language, since most of them haven’t a clue what it says or what it means. Trump obviously has no idea what his Constitutional role is which is why he keeps running roughshod over the Constitution.

    No because if Obama started reading the Constitution, he would start to burn like a vampire in sunlight, as we all know the brown turd hated the Constitution as much as Nanny Pelosi from San Fransicko.

    The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Where is that and what does it mean to whom?
    No I'm not a Trump fan- I despise politico's period- but hyperbole means there is no point to be made other than click bait.

    Is that all you have is 23 second clip...lol. Address the OP and Trump’s total ignorance of the US Constitution. A document he pledged to uphold and which he hasn’t a clue about.

    The only part of the constitution that Trumpers quote is the 2nd amendment and with all due respect, like yourself, still can’t get it right.

    I expect I've forgotten more about the constitution than most here will ever know- I used that simple stanza as a reminder, sir, that the body politic on neither side pays much attention to the rules written for them. In fact, dear nancy has said it's a living document- which is physically impossible as it is an inert piece of paper agreed to by those who sign it and swear an oath to protect it- please don't embarrass yourself in public.

    The Supreme Court will decide that if need be. We don't need a keyboard lawyer to tell us what it means, lol.

    This bitch has as much credibility as Oliver Stone in their documentaries.. And of course Alex wouldn't have any partisan feelings towards the President, now would she?
