    Next time Trump goes for a game of golf, someone should change the locks on the front door of the White House, and put all the lights out. If no one answers the door bell, he might just go away.

    Turley seems to consider the decision under discussion to be basically a nothingburger, and the underlying emoluments case to be weak.

    Sreiously? You haven't heard that one, MM. Trump thinks that "Article 2 gives him the right to do whatever he wants as President" He was also under the impression that he has total authority over the states. If you stuck you head outside of the bubble now and then you might learn something about the mindset of your hero.

    So Trump never actually said, "The Constitution says I can do whatever I want."

    He was asked what Constitutional provisions give him authority to reopen state economies. He said, "Numerous provisions. We'll give you a legal brief if you want." He was asked again, to which he replied, "The authority is total. That's the way it's got to be." Context matters, Jimmy.

    When you have a link which provides context you paste it. You pasted nothing.

    You didn't read the article again, did you MM? For one thing, the Constitution does not give Trump the authority to reopen state economies. What are you a federalist now? For another thing, read a few lines below the couple of lines you read until you come to the Article 2 quote. "Article 2 gives me the right to do whatever I want as president."
    So, "My authority is total. That's the way it's got to be." and "Article 2 gives me the right to do whatever I want as president." If that doesn't give you pause, then it must be because you're okay with the idea.

    Be honest, what would you be saying if those words came out of Obama's mouth?
