I believe that Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, second in line to assume the Presidency, has an opportunity to stand up to President Trump without getting into the dirt and at the same time possibly shaming Republicans in Congress into actually exercising their duty to protect the Constitution by acting as a COEQUAL branch of government.
2018 was a year that saw the loss of musical giant Aretha Franklin who gave us one of the songs of our generation. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Speaker Pelosi, Donald Trump shows disdain every time he refers to you as “Nancy” in public but it’s far more sinister than just showing disdain for you. He shows disdain for the Constitution which established Congress as a coequal branch of government and every member of the House and Senate. If I were you, I would be taking to the House floor and publicly demanding of President Trump that in all situations, public and private, he refer to you by the title you have earned by the solid ass smacking delivered in the midterm elections. Speaker Pelosi. Speaker of The House of Representatives of the United States of America.
Our Constitution imbues Congress with the ability to exercise oversight on the Executive branch of government. Indeed, every member of Congress takes an oath not to the President, or their party, but to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. We have a bully in the Oval Office. A narcissistic, pathological liar who respects no one. Not other world leaders, who he also dismissively refers to without including their title when he speaks of them, not the members of Congress, not the institutions manned with people dedicated to keeping our country safe, not military leaders who have risked their lives, indeed not even the people who voted for him.
Enough politics for the day. It’s tough to ignore them, and we shouldn’t, but there has to be some balance or we’ll all go over the edge. Spread common sense and logic wherever you can.
