tRUMP was an elected official to the office of the Presidency; the highest office in the land.Once tRUMP took office he was also officially the head of the military, the chief official in that capacity, able to order from his Oval office a nuclear strike if he deemed it necessary to save face or look powerful. I consider the US lucky that did not happen. I am sure in 10 more years we will find out he did order one and was talked out of it... in a spineless former white house official tell all... written under a pseudonym.
But hey, if he was not officially an officer in the military, how did his office give him that powerful rank of highest officer, Commander in Chief?He was also a public servant, but servant is not a class ranking that he would agree to so what was he then? He also did not need to be vetted because once elected unlike any other public servant and official in office in government, he was above that… as were his family and cronies.
tRUMP was also above rules, regulations, mores and ethics; had absolute right to do what he wanted with the Justice Department and pardon anyone he liked, any way he wished (Or who sufficiently paid for an early release and or expunged conviction) including himself; act with impunity and wave a magic wandmentally to declassify secrets.
And to complete the othering and bigotry we now also find he did not take an oath of office because he is not an officer. So who held this office? Article 2, Section 1: “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the term of four years…” and “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.”
Who was it then who took theOath for a faithful execution of his Office or Affirmation: – “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” tRUMP also should have been removed from office viaArticle II, Section 4: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.
How strange that an official in such high office would be considered NOT an officer… How freaking deplorable. This judge may think she is pretty clever ruling on the inciting an insurrection part of the Constitution, but feigning ignorance in the reading of the "officer" wording that is simple and not even remotely confusing... is ludicrous. Colorado secretary of state Jena Griswold should not be required to place tRUMP on the ballot…which this ruling orders her to do, as he incited an insurrection. She is spot on that this is dangerous precedence. He was the official office holder of the office of POTUS... and this ruling sucks, showing again that the "Law" is an ass.
