The last four years have shown how little presidential misbehavior is constrained by law.

Finally, the amendment should prevent presidents from pardoning themselves, their families, their staffs and campaign officials, and perhaps even major donors to their campaigns.


Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, convicted of massive tax fraud and on the run in Europe, who was the husband of Denise Eisenberg Rich. His wife had made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and Hillary Clinton's senate campaign. So I guess that is why the author said "perhaps even" with regard to pardoning major donors. You could also go with "the president can't pardon anybody" or "anybody he has any link to even if that travels through multiple people".

Dubya Bush and his regime committed war crimes and were re-elected. Seems like the author should have added "war crimes are a disqualifier".

But I have a feeling they won't be able to control themselves. That he'll be like a drug to them and they'll keep going back for their fix...


Railing about Trump is good for news show ratings and Democratic politicians welcome the opportunity to talk about something other than divisive issues like tax rates, illegal alien amnesty, job export, and increased government subsidy of health care. But they won't be able to go 24/7 on an out-of-office Trump. They will be forced to talk about some issues unless they substitute a group of Republican Senators, notably Mcconnell.

I like Reich's insights, and he's spot on here, too. His closing ideas -- about Biden fixing the systemic problems that led to a Trump win 4 years ago -- are also spot on, even if nearly impossible.

The only time he takes questions is when he's sitting at that teensy, tiny desk with the Presidential Seal stapled to the desk. So of course he throws a little tantrum.

The tiny desk isn't new. It's usually used when extra room is needed for guests:
