They better hope they don't accidentally win like they did last time, or they're proper farked.

MusicMakeMyHeadPound: Trump is currently at his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., and currently is not expected to have any public events on Friday.

Sheesh. This guy makes W look like a hard worker.


There's always the chance he could drive by a COVID ward.

Hey, W spent most of his second term clearing brush on his ranch.  That's pretty hard work.

Of course, he was ignoring two wars and a recession.  But whatevs, he seemed like someone it would be fun to get a non-alcoholic beer with.

madgonad: Parthenogenetic: jake3988: He does not have that power.  Only congress does.  That's pretty explicit in the constitution.

Pffft, he can just suspend the Constitution by executive order.

/he can't do that, right?
//RIGHT?!!

He can do anything that the Senate lets him.

/Trump has provided a valuable lesson on the flaws in our constitution

Elliot8654: Anyone bother to tell him that the constitution explicitly says he doesn't have the power to do that?

Separation of powers?

Or are his lackeys just rolling over for him like always?


We used to think that presidents couldn't do things like that, then Barack Obama showed us the way when he said he wouldn't enforce immigration laws against certain classes of illegal aliens. Now we know that presidents can selectively enforce any damn thing they want, so welcome to a payroll tax holiday. Next, maybe we'll get half off our income taxes.

AAAAGGGGHHHH: So, how are we going to fund Social Security with no payroll tax revenue? The whole program was structured to NOT be financed through the General Fund.

Unfortunately, it turns out a president can pretty much do whatever the fark they want when the senate majority leader, attorney general and the majority of the supreme court are all complicit.


If that were actually the case we'd see assassinations and a real coupe occurring.

He just can't let shiat go can he? If Dotard says something, everyone that works for him has to work full time to make reality match up to whatever BS he said.

Stop talking about hydroxychloroquine  and promote remdesvir instead, after hydroxychloroquine  was shown to hurt people, and remdesvir might actually help?

Nooooooooooo, that would be something someone with a farkin brain would do, Dotard will hawking hydroxychloroquine for the rest of his life. He will do an infomercial touting it as a cure for everyhting from scabies to angina.  Buy 100 doses, get 1 free!

Having trouble getting pregnant? Try hydroxychloroquine!

Preganant but dont want a kid? Try hydroxychloroquine!

Teenager acting surly?  Give them hydroxychloroquine!

What have you got to lose?

TRUMP BRAND hydroxychloroquine!  And a payroll tax cut!

Kill 'em, and starve the goverment, at the same time!

dylanthomas: freakdiablo: SomeAmerican: Yes, because a payroll tax cut will really help out the unemployed.

Didn't you hear? Jobs are up 1.8 million, Trump posted it on the Twitters. Unemployment is no longer an issue. </s>

Yeah, jobs are up - jobs like "Crack Whore" and "Assistant Crack Whore."

Imagine that, a president can just turn off or turn on a tax at will, on caprice.  Why didn't all those presidents, since the income tax amendment, do that with income tax?

Why did George Washington, lead our state militias against tax evaders in 1794 in the Whiskey Rebellion?

Maybe Trump should tax Tweets if they don't go his way.

You Are All Sheep: is this the first step to cutting SS?


The fark it is. Every cent out of the treasury is coming out of Trump and his worthless rich friend's hide in a few months.  We are going to turn Mnuchin upside down and shake him for change.
