The true significance of Trump’s “terminate the Constitution” remark

“Reacting to the news that Twitter in the runup to the 2020 election removed tweets that featured pornographic photos of Hunter Biden, Trump declared that the entire election had been stolen from him and demanded to be returned to the presidency,” Raw Story reported on Saturday, December 3, 2022 (see story here).

What the heck does Twitter blocking stolen photos of Hunter Biden in his birthday suit have to do with “stealing” an election, you may wonder? I’m wondering, too. The best answer I can think of is that we shouldn’t expect logic from someone as weirdly obsessed as Trump is.

The liberal media are going bonkers over Trump’s remark about terminating the Constitution. They’re taking it out of context. Here’s the entire quote:

“So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION? A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”

This is basically more of the same, not really anything new, just another round of ranting about “reinstating” him to the White House. All he said was, if the Constitution’s in the way, waive it.

This latest rant does put an underline under, yellow highlight on, and exclamation point after his lawless mindset. We knew that about him, but now we have it in writing: He’ll bypass the Constitution to get what he wants; and by the way, he’s tacitly encouraging his supporters to do just that. Many of those most likely to follow his lead, though, are currently inconvenienced by being locked up.

The Constitution really doesn’t have anything with this. To him, it’s just another hurdle on the obstacle course between him and his objective. Trump is far too single-minded to be a revolutionary, and he’s not thinking about a different form of government. He has nothing more in mind than this: What Trump wants, Trump gets.

But however off-the-cuff and trivial in substance this remark actually is, if it loosens Trump’s grip on the Republican Party (early indications are that it won’t, see stories here and here), or better yet is the straw that breaks the camel’s back, it will truly be significant.

This is a developing story, and this posting may be updated.
