Behold! We have the King of Asses, leading us and dividing us.
Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers:
“The person of the king of Great Britain is sacred and inviolable; there is no constitutional tribunal to which he is amenable; no punishment to which he can be subjected without involving the crisis of a national revolution."
That's why The United States of America has a Constitution, to protect us from anyone trying to rule like a king.
By ignoring the emoluments clause of the Constitution which bars the president from accepting payments from foreigners, Trump acts as a king, as if there is “no punishment to which he can be subjected without involving the crisis of a national revolution.”
He'll find Impeachment is written into it. Trump is subject, not superior to, the law, according to the Constitution.
The Founding Fathers wanted to make sure someone like Trump could "be held liable, tried, and, upon conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes or misdemeanors, removed from office; and after that they would still be libel to prosecution and punishment in the ordinary course of law."
Trump's disdain for our laws is already legendary, as he goes after judges like they're mindless vassals in his kingdom.
A week doesn't go by when Trump claims he can do anything he wants.
Whether it's giving away U.S. espionage secrets in the Oval Office to the Russians, to forming meaningless commissions to investigate his version of voter fraud where he claims Clinton didn't win the popular vote.
He lies with the impunity of a King beholden to no one but himself. When no facts support his lies - like Obama bugging him in Trump tower - he just moves ahead with more lies.
During his campaign Trump told his supporters that he would rule like a CEO, and they'd all benefit from his enormous experience.
That certainly isn't what the rest of the world sees. Some countries are now leery of Trump's ability to keep his big mouth shut when it comes to state secrets.
His imperial ways will only take him so far. Shoving another Head-Of-State aside for a NATO photo op, Trump displayed his blundering lack of tact and statesmanship while in Brussels.
His lies will eventually end his reign when he's convicted of obstruction of justice in the course of the intelligence probe centering in on his ties with Russia.
He is the Lord of Lies.
He is NOT a legitimate president, but one whose election campaign was aided by our greatest enemy in the world, Russia.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
