Twitter erupts over ’emperor’ Trump’s claim his ’authority is total’

Twitter was set alight on Monday after Trump claimed he has ’total’ authority over governors to reopen state economies. Trump’s claim was met with derision from legal experts, politicians and social media commentators alike. Democrats even introduced a resolution in the House of Representatives pushing back on Trump’s claims. ’We don’t have a king, we have an elected president,’ wrote Gov. Cuomo.

They just can't accept the fact that Trump is president, and depite their best efforts, he's not going anywhere for another 4 plus years.

What’s so funny is the recurring loss of memory people who are on the left have about how Obama ran his Administration. His famous statement, “I have a phone and a pen, and I’m going to use them,” was the calling card for his executive orders to “fundamentally change America.” He definitely did,skipping or ignoring Congressional and judicial oversight, and it was for the worse. His agenda helped steepen the moral decline this country was already in, going into a full dive down. His administration helped immoral activist groups across the country redefine what was right and what was wrong. He did more to legitimize decadent behavior and lifestyles than any president in recent memory. Even more than Bill and Hillary.

Why do all of these new articles always have 3 upvotes immediately and automatically? Trump is not an emperor because it doesn't have an empire, and it will not be on the throne for 50+ years. Trump 2020, though.

Another out of context quotes to be used as a smear. No surprise it's all the usual leftists who have twisted their panties over this.

Sorry, but "total authority" is a definite no for me. Even during a crisis. [the ann0ying AI may disagree, id0ntcare]

The left: Trump needs to force states to lock down. He should have done it sooner. The left: Trump is a dictator trying to force states to lift their lock downs.

I like how their articles really don't have anything to do with his statement, and just how they took it. He does have 'total' control over it. How the states handle it after he reopens it is a different story.

It's really interesting reading these comment threads and watching Americans squabble without a nuanced understanding of each others ideologies. America is a snake eating its own tail.

Simple simon socialist, blame the president for everything, as if he has total power, then cry when he says it. Can't have it both ways.
