Intensely Irritating and more — #NebDems News

The intensely irritating bagpipe “music” that is Donald Trump’s bluster is building again, as he tools around the country for rallies with his mouth-breathing devotees.

He yammers about this and that and keeps lying about the 2020 election being stolen from him.

And yes, The Donald is threatening the country with another run for the White House (pause for group shudder).

Alas, we recently learned of a major legal impediment to another Trump run, as the New Yorker’s Andy Borowitz “documented.”

In a major setback for the former President, constitutional-law experts have determined that Donald J. Trump’s claim of having won the Presidency twice disqualifies him from ever running again.

At a convention of constitutional scholars over the weekend, more than four hundred experts unanimously agreed that Trump’s declaration of two White House victories means that he has reached the Presidential term limit as defined by the Twenty-second Amendment.

“The Twenty-second Amendment clearly states, ‘No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice,’ ” Davis Logsdon, a professor of constitutional law at the University of Minnesota, said. “Since Trump claims that he was elected for a second time in 2020, he has eliminated himself from any future White House bid.”

“Frankly, I’m surprised that the people on his legal team, like Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani, didn’t look into this,” he said.

Logsdon said that, although Trump has rendered another Presidential bid impossible, he could still make productive use of his years as an ex-President, “perhaps by building houses, like Jimmy Carter.”

If only.


Tuesday marked the first day of Black History Month, which is observed during the month of February as a celebration and reminder that Black history is American history.

On Monday, President Biden issued a proclamation calling on the nation to celebrate the contributions of Black Americans, honor the legacies and achievements of generations past, reckon with centuries of injustice and confront those injustices that still fester today.
