Prove this. Cite actions and credible non-partisan sources that agree with you.
What would you consider a non-partisan source? But for a start:
-Ordering subordinates to ignore all Congressional subpoenas, blocking Congress's lawful role as a coequal branch of government charged by the Constitution with exercising oversight on the Executive.
-Declaring a state of emergency to do an end run around Congress's Constitutionally granted power of the purse.
-Accusing those who investigated him of being traitors, implicitly equating loyalty to America with personal loyalty to him.
-Promising pardons to subordinates who break the law on his command.
-Firing James Comey for investigating his administration, and not giving personal loyalty to him.* AKA Obstruction of Justice.
-Attempting to have Mueller fired. Also Obstruction of Justice.
-Suggesting his term limits should be expanded.
-Attempting to incite mob violence against his political opponents (and, if the uptick in Trump-aligned Right-wing/white supremacist violence is any indication, succeeding).
Most of these are common knowledge to anyone who's paid attention to the news the last couple years.
Term limits have been changed before and the current limits are a relatively modern thing. I don't support the change but as long as any such changes are done above board they're pretty normal US politics.
What Ziggy said.
So you weren't outspoken against them in the same way you are about literally everything Trump does? That literally proves that they bothered you less than Trump being a bag of dicks.
Trump is a bag of dicks, yes. He's also a fascist, a misogynist, a rapist, a racist, an inciter of mob violence, a corrupt plutocrat, a climate denier, a colluder, and obstructor of justice, and guilty of crimes against humanity (his immigration policy). And yes, the aggregate of those things bothers me more than the drone strikes. Maybe that's partly because of bias, but its also because those things together will do more harm to the world than Obama's drone strikes ever could.
His climate denialist policies alone (or trying to strip health care and wellfare from millions of Americans) have the potential to kill more people indirectly than all the drone strikes ever launched.
Yeah, me a Canadian, am a Bernie or Buster... Swing and a fucking miss there. If anything I'm simply less invested in US politics than you are and can more easily spot the bullshit inherent to US politics than somebody entrenched in them can.
I know you're a Canadian, dumb ass. You're still using their rhetoric.
*You want non-partisan sources for Trump being an authoritarian shit who thinks he should be above the law? Just read the fucking Mueller Report.
"I know its easy to be defeatist here because nothing has seemingly reigned Trump in so far. But I will say this: every asshole succeeds until finally, they don't. Again, 18 months before he resigned, Nixon had a sky-high approval rating of 67%. Harvey Weinstein was winning Oscars until one day, he definitely wasn't."-John Oliver
"The greatest enemy of a good plan is the dream of a perfect plan."-General Von Clauswitz, describing my opinion of Bernie or Busters and third partiers in a nutshell.
I SUPPORT A NATIONAL GENERAL STRIKE TO REMOVE TRUMP FROM OFFICE.
