The mental malfunction who gave us "Let's pass this bill to see what is in it" and other dim Dems proclaim that Trump violated the Constitution both by forcing the resignation of Sessions and appointing Whitaker in his stead.
Reminds me dino how Klansman Robert Byrd loved to pluck out his little brown pocket Constitution whenever he disputed just about anything a Republican president did.
Me dino has one of those. I could wave ,my paperback Constitution and proclaim the moon is made of cheese all day.
So may Dems, so many "experts" so ready to pop off what is Constitutional or not.
Me dino would rather trust what I've heard Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity has said on the subject of presidential appointments.
There is nothing in the Constitution that says the president can't hire or fire any appointee he wants. He does not even have to give a reason.

    I see the "violation of the Constitution" mantra coming up among the left more and more often recently.

    They use this as the old tactic of blaming your opponent for the same crime you committed. Old communist measure.

    It is even more ridiculous when we know how Hussein disregarded ALL and EVERYTHING the Constitution established. He was the first and foremost abuser of Constitutional rights.

    They will run with this because the sheep they control have the slightest idea what she is claiming but back her because that is what the party demands.

    First, the still-in-force Vacancies Act says the President may do exactly what he's done, without regard to seniority, existing chain of command, or any of it.

    Second, Congress is in recess.

    Third, the Vacancies Act is entirely within the Constitution. "Congress may by law vest the appointment power in the President alone."

    Fourth, if anyone is doing violence to the Constitution, the Democrats are.

    Their actual argument has some merit. They are arguing that the appointment came without Senate approval - that the position falls under the "Officers of the United States" and they may actually have a valid point. It is a completely hypocritical point to make given Barack Obama's appointment of "czars" and all their other anti-Constitutional behavior, however.

        Democrats are very good about selective enforcement, that's for sure. They sure have a "let-it-slide" attitude toward their own priorities when their Constitutionality is challenged.

          That's because Democrats (psst, that including socialists, even communists) consider themselves to be our elite betters put on this earth to lord over all of us little people.
          They wannabe a new aristocracy reminiscent of the more than equal pigs of Animal Farm.

            "Animal Farm" was probably Orwell's best work which is odd given his socialist tendencies.

              It made a huge impression on me dino when I was into my 20s with lefty things related to the Vietnam War protests leading my errant moody mind to believe that socialism may be a good thing.
              Reading Animal Farm gave me my "Uh, wait a minute" moment.
              Then the inept Jimmy Carter, who I voted for, gave me his gift of malaise, compelling me to vote for Ronald Reagan and there was no turning back to all my former foolishness.
