    Grace Meng (D-NY) says she’ll be introducing a bill tomorrow that seeks to stop Trump

    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    How do you craft and pass a bill to prevent such a thing?
    I mean, do you pass a bill forbidding the President from ever doing it - or just Trump?
    And who's going to SIGN it?
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds." Teddy Roosevelt

    I'm thinking it would not pass Constitutional Muster ... but yeah who in the Senate would vote for such a bill


    Like the 'you cannot fire Muller' Bill

    It would be nice if these people would actually know a little something about government and how it works before they, you know, become part of the system.

    I have no doubt this woman is just trying to get her name in the news. Who ever heard of her before this very day? Unfortunately she's doing it by wasting our time and money.

    See, that is what I don't get. She's served three terms and is a forty-something lawyer. She should and likely DOES know how it works.

    So why do it?

    Publicity. Had you ever heard that woman's name before this? Clearly her constituents (she reps Queens) are ignorant, or they wouldn't have elected her in the first place. So she goes out there, grandstands a bit, her voters go, "Yeah! Dat ting she sed!" and everyone goes back about their business.

    Evidently she doesn't like Trump.
    That's enough these days.
