Donald Trump’s decision to declare a “national emergency” in order to fulfill his nativist campaign promise of building a wall between the United States and Mexico is nothing less than an attack on the system of checks and balances at the heart of our constitution.
The men who designed our Constitution were unusually brilliant members of an unusually brilliant generation.
They were not, however, infallible.
Their greatest failure should be obvious to everyone. (If you do not know to what failure I am referring please seek help immediately. Because there is something deeply wrong with you.)
