    as president, obama killed american citizen anwar al-alwaki. do you understand why he can legally do that and you cannot? there was no trial, Obama just murdered him. why isnt Obama in jail?

    Well in all fairness, the former press secretary DID say that he shouldn’t have been there. That’s a defense, right?

    nah if memory serves, al-alwaki was an american born Muslim with his family from yemen or some shit. so he had American birthright citizenship. but he was a terrorist so we blew him up with a drone or missile I cant remember, over in bumfuckistan.

    the ACLU and others said this was an unconstitutional extra-judicial killing by Obama, and it was in fact Obama who had ordered the strike. but Obama, having presidential immunity, was allowed. of course Obama has the corporate press and shit on his side. he would never go to court, because they were not using the justice system as a weapon against Obama.

    so when in court last week they tried to make it appear absurd that trump has immunity, and asked if he could literally kill somebody, in order to make the point that he obviously cannot. but the precedent is there. a president can and has called for the killing of an American citizen, with no trial, no due process, nothing.

    the idea of presidential immunity is far less absurd than trump critics are willing to admit.

    the system still works if he has immunity, we just have to impeach him first if he starts acting crazy. this protects him from frivolous charges, as he should be.

    I am listening to the live arguments on the colorado case to take trump off the ballot.

    the only question is whether trump wins unanimously, I think he will. its possible he wins 7 or 8 of 9. but he is gonna win. easily. this case is stupid.
