The most clueless President ever strikes again

I had written a similar essay earlier, then took it down because a link I had posted wasn't working once it was pasted onto the post. So, let's try this again, albeit with a different link attached.

Anyway, President Trump on Wednesday told the Washington Examiner that he would "absolutely" disband the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, just because a district judge not connected with the 9th Circuit shot down his intended executive order to prohibit funding for so-called "sanctuary cities" that supposedly are protecting illegal immigrants from the Immigration & Naturalization Services (INS).

Like, seriously, Mr. President? From what I understand, you don't have the authority to order the disbandment of the 9th Circuit or any other circuit court of appeals. Congress does. Good luck convincing both houses of Congress to go along with this latest outrageous idea.

The last Republican President, George W. Bush, was decried and dismissed as being clueless when he first took office 16 years ago, but you're making him look like a Rhodes Scholar, Mr. Trump. Never mind the fact that he went to Yale and could probably debate you under the table. At least, he didn't behave like a petulant child every time things didn't go his way. We can tell when you're throwing a tantrum, every time you go on Twitter, which you claim you're not really interested in. Yeah, tell us another tall tale.

Anyway, here's a link to a Time Magazine article:

You'll just have to copy the link and paste it onto your search box.

Here's a piece of advice, Mr. Trump. You have a Bible. Read it. I'm sure you'll find something that will give you something you've been lacking. Clarity.
