      That's an atypical use of the term. When most people hear "the Constitution", they think of the entire document.

      Now I suppose I could play your game and insist that my understanding is what you "Really MeantTM", or I can accept that you simply didn't express yourself clearly and leave it at that.

          Only the ones still willing to vote for Trump

          Yeah - too harsh on my part.

          ---

          regardless of THAT, there is no limit on how much in Trumps words. In no uncertain terms, Trump is saying that his situation calls for the termination of the constitution to whatever extent is necessary, up to and including all of it, to 'right the wrong' he percieves.

          and that means Trump us in fact willing to violate his oath of office to retain power. And that means He is simply unfit for any public office.

                  No, Jim, it's what you in your hatred of Trump infer.

                  And you're back to doing that "I'm about to blow my stack again" routine, so I'll back off.
                  The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                    • I think it is not well understood that Trump’s message was in reaction to Matt Taibbi’s Twitter thread:

                      https://www.independent.co.uk/voices...39378.html?amp

                      We will hear much more about Biden/Ukraine/Laptops/Nudes in the months ahead.

                        I don't mind being quoted, I don't mind it when people point out where I'm incorrect. But it is entirely dishonest to build a case on what I never said.
                        Well that's ironic considering that is exactly what you keep doing with Trump's words.

                          Yeah, I missed this earlier. It is EXACTLY what you are doing, Jim.
                          You misrepresent what Trump said (it really is all there in black and white) then you explain a meaning you want to believe to match the message you want to give.

                          And, yes, it is entirely dishonest to build a case on what Trump never said.

                          Jim - there are PLENTY of things Trump actually said, that if quoted accurately, are damning enough.
                          You go over the top with seeing things that simply are not there, and would clearly be called out of order in a court.

                            Starting with, given there were warnings of potential violence why did Pelosi turn down Trump's offer of sending the National Guard in to insure order?

                              It was such an incredibly one-sided "investigation" it's almost criminal. AND... did you see that Liz Cheney was a runner-up for Time's Person of the Year?

                                FYI. The whole it was all about the nude images on the laptop is nothing more than the latest thing concocted by the left to justify the censoring of anything about Hunter's laptop before the election.
