Donald Trump and the Constitution

In this apocryphal newspaper, our biggest target has inevitably been Donald Trump. For example, when it comes to constitutional law, we have frequently said that Trump wants to replace the First Amendment with the Second Amendment.


But yesterday he did us one better: he said that the Constitution should be dispensed with so that his preposterous claims of electoral victimhood can truimph:


So he wants to take an oath of his own creation, in which he will have all the secular power imaginable. At last report from associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones, he’ll look to the Oath Keepers to provide an oath that will enhance his power to whatever levels he chooses.


Numerous Republican elected officials have condemned Trump’s claim, having reflected on the oaths they took when they assumed office, so for once we may be seeing a Parting of the Ways between Trump and Republican office holders.
