He's running for re-election. That's not exactly something kings or dictators do.

1 So Obama said that as President implementing what would become DACA, would be illegal and unconstitutional. But Obama, rather like a medieval monarch with a troublesome disloyal parliament, gave Congress an ultimatum pass the legislation or I'll ignore the Constitution. Congress didn't so Obama just went ahead with DACA. When Trump tried to obey the Constitution and rescind DACA the deep state in the form of some Liberal activist judge stepped into to protect DACA. Telling Trump he didn't have the power to rescind what Obama never had the power to implement in the first place. :?:
2 Hilary broke America's national security laws. But if she was guilty then so was Obama, as he had communicated with her illegal server. So the prosecution against her was stopped to avoid making Obama look bad.
3 Now Obama supporters lecture Trump supporter on the Constitution and obeying the law.
Am I missing something?
That's about right. Obama holds the record of US presidents to be overturned by unanimous rulings of the Supreme Court--that is, even Ruth Bader Ginsberg disagreed with him--and she'll be dead soon.

There was enough for a conviction and a 30-year prison sentence.

Show where he has violated the law. Why isn't he being impeached for this?

Why does it matter to you that Republicans object to Trump? Do you think Trump supporters say to themselves, "Oh, a Republican disagrees with Trump. Therefore, Trump must be wrong, because Republicans are always right."? Plenty of people who vote Republican hate the Republicans.

He should be in prison too. Don't you agree?
late wrote:In any case, "the intent makes the crime".
No it doesn't. The act makes the crime. If intent is made a component of a crime, it can mitigate or enhance the crime. For example, running over someone and killing them because your foot slipped off the brake might be considered a negligent homicide; whereas, running over someone with the accelerator on the ground while screaming the n-word is probably a hate crime. By contrast, driving 110 mph on the highway is a violation of the prima facie speed limit in the US.
late wrote:Of course, you should be screaming blue bloody murder about Trumps violations of security procedure, they are thousands of times worse.
Why should BigSteve be screaming? Why aren't you doing that if you are concerned about Trump's security?
