Re: Trump is in for a wake up call.

Being illegal (or unconstitutional) hasn't stopped him so far, has it?

I have this eccentric hobbyhorse theory that the US is screwed until it tears up the constitution and starts again from scratch; so many of the fundamental dysfunctions flow from unexamined fetished pronouncements that probably fitted the 18th and 19th and even 20th centuries fairly well, but are now anachronisms.

I think you'll soon be seeing exactly how much use it is in it's most fundamental purpose, that of preventing a tyrannical government seizing power. "Not very much at all, as it turns out" is my bet.
