What Trump did was a series of small-scale unconstitutional usurpations of power that has a long term of effect of monarchizing the presidency. The same thing has been going on since Washington - send the army to collect a whiskey tax? Tyrannical. Jefferson - the Constitution doesn't give me authority to buy real estate, but fuck it, France has a great deal. John Marshall - hey all these state courts have invented the concept of judicial review, so fuck it - us too. Lincoln - hey I just read the legislature can suspend habeus corpus - that's awesome so fuck it, me too; I think starting a war might be a tough sell to Congress, so fuck them, they're out of town; yeah, the Constitution has some bullshit about creating new states, but fuck that and hello West Virginia; them rebs have a cool idea going with this military enslavement thing, so hello draft! Congress - that 16th amendment was a PITA so fuck the Constitution and we create the estate tax, gift tax, FICA tax, gas tax, whatever we fucking want! Bill Clinton - I don't like these religious kooks so let's burn them the fuck out; hey intern gimme a blowjob; um I like these bad guys best in Yugoslavia.

They all do it:
