I said so many times this Constitution is going to be the "noose" around this country's neck; it worked in 1800, but not now. Ask the 17 "kids" who got killed because of it as well the "non vetted con-man mental patient" we got as leader!
The courts have stepped up on numerous occasions and provided a check on Donald. As has Congress by being unable to pass anything major outside of a tax cut for rich people.
In the same breath, Congress has been rubber stamping Donald's judicial appointees at record pace. Those judges have the potential to reshape the American political landscape more than Donald ever will.
There are plenty of checks and balances, but they are only as good as the fallible human beings who are in charge of upholding them. And if the fallible human beings are right wing zealots then there's nothing we can do about it other than take the extraordinary step of impeaching them, which rarely, if ever happens.
Maybe Bernie or busters should have thought about that side effect when they voted for a sociopath because their feelings were hurt.
