Trump Threatens To Override Governors, Even Though He Can't

CNN not sugarcoating anything anymore.

He is just stirring the shit. Creating chaos.

We just have to make sure that it destroys him.

Thank you for finding a way around Muriel's incompatible with the truth and/or CNN.

CNN has pretty broad distribution R2, so if you just put the exact headline into Google it usually (but not always) turns up an alternate link.

And for those who can't be bothered to click, the CNN write up is equally short and to the point:

[quote] President Trump told reporters at an impromptu White House Briefing that he will override state governors if they didn't open places of worship this weekend. However, President Trump does not have the legal authority to override governors.

Even the Wall Street Journal noted the absurdity:

[quote] The president has no power under existing law to countermand lawful orders from state governments, nor can he unilaterally force private businesses to open their doors against their will, legal experts say. The structure of the U.S. Constitution reserves considerable powers to the states, and gives individuals and businesses significant protections against coercive government actions. Mr. Trump on Friday didn’t say how he would overrule the states in the specific matter of rules governing whether places of worship could open.

Muriel hates CNN?

by Anonymousreply 605/22/2020

He never said that.”

by Anonymousreply 705/22/2020

Trump deems places of worship "essential services" and he's never been in one. So who told him?

[quote]Muriel hates CNN?

I think so. I tried 3 times to post an article from CNN and it wouldn't take. There's also a British newspaper that Muriel hates (sorry can't remember which one, is it the Independent?) which totally erases the comment that you make when you post.

This is just more Trump theatrics. He knows damn good and well he doesn't have this authority, but it just reinforces his "street cred" among his idiotic adorers.

As long as the seed is planted in their simplistic Evangelical brains, there is no need for soil, sunlight or water for the seed to grow and blossom.

R10 nailed it! sadly!...

it's it great my president is a "shit stirrer"! (course the evangelicals would never ever think to use the word "shit" out loud right?)... too messed up in their heads to know he IS shit!...

Cuomo is going to be all over this in his casual, no tie briefing Saturday. Andrew likes to emphasize the rights he has as governor that were given to him hundreds of years before the orange imbecile was even born.

by Anonymousreply 1205/22/2020

I'm sure his people have told him and he can, and they're going to provide that information soon. Until the next thing he pulls out of his ass. Which will be tomorrow. He really is a master at manipulating the media "over here"... hopefully people are paying attention to what's going on with him "over there".

Republicans: hate government “overreach”

Also Republicans: “please Daddy Trump, interfere with our state laws, we’re begging you!”

by Anonymousreply 1405/22/2020

He has no power to do anything about this except create chaos and some heat for the Democratic governors. But that ain't nuthin'.

by Anonymousreply 1505/22/2020

Listening to that Kristin McNinny's press conference on this was painful. I wish the media would stop giving this administration the airtime - that's all Trump wants.

In the OP's photo, Dumpy looks like his eyes are tilting upwards. Is it just the angle of the photo or did he get a cheapass facelift recently while I've been avoiding looking at his fugass face?

by Anonymousreply 1705/22/2020

He’s the KING. Of course he can. He can do anything he wants. Ignore subpoenas, block government officials from testimony, spend money not authorized by Congress, grab some pussy. He’s LARGE & IN CHARGE.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
