Trump calls for 'termination' of the U.S. Constitution in Truth Social post

Quote:
Former President Donald Trump on Saturday called for the "termination" of U.S. rules and regulations, "even those found in the Constitution," while falsely claiming that tech companies and Democrats conspired to "throw the presidential election results" in 2020.

"So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION?" Trump said in a post to his Truth Social platform.

"A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great 'Founders' did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!"

It was not immediately clear which articles of the U.S. Constitution that Trump took issue with in his comments, or if he was calling for the termination of the entirety of the nation's bylaws.

Trump's comments came after internal Twitter emails were released to Substack writer Matt Taibbi showing the company's decision-making process over New York Post story about material found on a laptop believed to belong to Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden.

Taibbi, a longtime critic of online censorship, in a thread posted to Twitter on Friday portrayed the company's actions at as "extraordinary steps to suppress the story" of Hunter Biden's laptop and alleged that Democrats had imbalanced access to Twitter tools request that tweets and accounts be deleted.

Elon Musk, who recently bought the social media company, had teased the release of the emails on his personal account on Friday.

Trump's comments alluded to that alleged "revelation" that the Democratic party had worked closely with Twitter while once again claiming that his loss in the 2020 presidential election was the result of widespread voter fraud.

The former president, who recently announced his third presidential bid, expressed support for rioters during the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, in a video played during a fundraiser, CNN reported.

His comment speaks for itself.

I can only hope that given his age he won't be long for this mortal world.

IMO, "Pumpkin" is trying to increase his relevance in comparison to when he was POTUS.

Anyone can metaphorically stand on a soap box and demand anything they like...it doesn't make it happen. it just makes them look like every other street-corner kook doing the same thing.

Furthermore all federal officials are sworn to uphold the constitution, to do otherwise is sedition.

True, but it's worrisome that said kook is a former president who still has something of a following.

Not as much as he used to.

Especially not after these comments--I would hope. But then his supporters have shown a willingness to ditch any principle if it means not admitting they were wrong.
I can see the rationalizations now:
"Democrats are twisting the constitution against loyal Americans!" "We need to suspend it to save it!" "Hahaha the communist Demoncrats suddenly want to act like they care about the constitution." Etc, etc

A Promise During An Election That Supporters Will Hold True, IF A Prospective

President Shoots Someone in Broad Daylight on 5th Avenue; Oh Why, Oh Why,

Do Some Folks Continue to Support Someone in An Abusive Relationship This

Way; Particularly, When THEY MAKE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR HOW THEY ARE GOING

TO MANIPULATE

YOU FROM THE

VERY BEGINNING.

SO NOW TRUMP is Back

On 5th Avenue, Aiming At the Rule

Of Law Associated With Elections

And Associating Overturning the

Constitution of the United States

To Overturn A Free and Fair Election Again...

It's True, i've Seen Abusive Relationships Like This;

They Are Often Cold of Empathy and Full of 'Blood Lust'

to Have Power Over Other Folks to Subjugate And Control Them ThiS Way;

It's Really Sad, When Men And Or Women Without Spines Become Leaders of A Democracy

ThiS Way And It Just Goes to Show What Extent Some Folks Will Go to Make A 'Deal With A Real

Devil' For Power

And Control

Over Others

In Their Own
Lives Too Taking Away
Basic Health Care Specific

To Women And Who Human Beings

Are Able to Love And Express Their

Unique Sexual And Gender Orientations;

Indeed, What Ignorance Lurks Dark in the Human HEart...

Trump Brings The Worst Out in Many Folks As The Record Shows;

Particularly,

Those Who

Are Throwing
Away A Party For Him...

As TRump Truly Continues
To Own the 'Repubs' AS HiS Own
Piece of Political Real Estate, Overall;

Yuck, Stink,

Stank, Stunk,

What Do Ya Do

When 'The TRuMP'

Won't Reform Himself

On The Top of 'Whoville Mountain'...

Clue: Don't Support 'The Devil Ya Know Best'...

'Roast
The
Beast,'
Figuratively
SPeaKinG Of Course,

In 'Revelations' of DusTy Old BLacK Books...

My Dad, the very much matter-of-fact, no BS, no urban legend, you'd better document your claims, retired senior Naval Officer said something the other day which really struck me, it went along the lines of, "Whatever they gave Trump for covid has screwed with his mind."

That was a most interesting thing to hear from that source.

Even if the GOP political leadership won't publicly admit that Trump is intellectually or morally unfit for the White House, hopefully most voters of both parties will realize that fact.

You need to remember H. L. Mencken’s diatribe on the intelligence of Americans.

I don’t feel Trump has any chance now.
