If Trump Could Take his Sharpie to the U.S. Constitution

Cagle Cartoons: Milt Priggee, Oak Harbor, WA

Many say that the man in the White House has “shredded the U.S. Constitution.”

I beg to differ.

I do not believe the stable genius in the Oval Office has the skills to operate a shredder.

If he tried, he would probably get his mile-long tie caught in the mechanism with disastrous consequnces.

But Trump does a have a magic Sharpie that he has used extremely well, such as to alter official NOAA charts, to sign a piece of the “Wall” that Mexico would pay for and, figuratively, to distort, exaggerate, even falsify numerous facts and figures.

Thus, using his “Sharpie method,” is the way Trump would “shred” the Constitution.

His preamble would be:

In Order to form a more powerful Trump dynasty, establish unquestioned loyalty to the Trump Brand, provide for the enrichment of the Trump Family, insure domestic division and turbulence, provide for the common defense of the Trump lawlessness and corruption, and secure the Blessings of the Almighty Dollar to Myself and my posterity and with all the powers vested into Me and my Sharpie I do hereby amend the Constitution for the United States of America as follows:

Article I (Legislative)

Section 1 (The Congress)

Legislative Powers not reserved for Myself are herein granted to Congress. However, I shall have Executive and Veto powers that shall not be challenged.

Section 2 (House of Representatives)

1: The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members anointed by Me.
2: No Person shall be a Representative who has not pledged unequivocal loyalty to Me.

Section 3 (The Senate)

1: Ditto for the Senate of the United States.
2-5: Sharpie-out.
6: (The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.) Again, Sharpie-out this slander.

Section 1

1: The executive Power vested in Me shall be unlimited and I and my Descendants shall hold the office in perpetuity.

Article III ( Judicial)

Section 1

The judicial Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as populated by Me. They shall at all times look after My interests first and shall hold their Offices during good Behavior towards Me.

Based on Section 1, this Section is redundant.

Very nervous about this Section. We’ll see what happens.

Obsolete – Sharpie-out.
.

Sharpie-out. No more Amendments necessary. The swamp has been drained. America is great again.

What in the hell is “ratification”?
