Fake Democrat-media Storyline that Trump “called” to terminate the Constitution

The latest storyline that the Democrat ”News”-media Colluders (hereafter the DNC) have fabricated to keep themselves in money and power is that Trump “called” to suspend the Constitution in order to install him as president after the stolen election of 2020. 

That accusation was everywhere in what remains of our “news” media.  NBC’s Chuck Todd claims, with the usual sense of moral superiority, that Trump “called for the suspension of the Constitution as yet another attempt to overturn the 2020 election.” Al Jazeera, displaying a Trump post from Truth Social, reports that Trump “called for parts of the Constitution to be thrown out if needed” to reverse the results of the 2020 election.   AP which used to be a “news” organization, reported that Trump “faced rebuke … after calling for the ‘termination’ of parts of the Constitution over his lie that the 2020 election was stolen.”  AP quoted Trump’s exact words to support their contention.

A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.  Our great ‘Founders’ did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!”

CNN, which has long had a difficult time getting the English language right, reports that “Trump called for the termination of the Constitution to overturn the 2020 election and reinstate him to power … in a continuation of his election denialism and pushing of fringe conspiracy theories.”  Well that managed to get all the DNC memes in! 

USA Today, another former “news” paper, reports that “Republican leaders are mostly silent over Trump’s call to suspend the Constitution.” 

Voice of America, but not, apparently, the America that still understands the English language at the high school level, reports that Trump “faced rebuke Sunday from officials in both parties after calling for the ‘termination’ of parts of the Constitution over his lie that the 2020 election was stolen.”

Axios reports that “Lawmakers condemn Trump’s call to suspend the Constitution.”

People Magazine, eager to show how much they care, reports that “GOP responds with silence” to “Trump’s call to suspend the Constitution.” 

The BBC, from across the pond where the English language originated, and eager to get into the act, is outraged at “Trump’s call for termination of the Constitution.”

Entertainment News, which is where this story actually belongs, reports that George Stephanopoulos, who recently falsely stated on air that Trump had been convicted of rape and not retracted the allegation, and Jake Tapper, who pushed the fake Trump-Russia Collusion hoax for years, both confronted Republicans over “Trump’s Call to Suspend the Constitution.”

Even Joe Biden, between his naps and his attempts to put his main political opponent for 2024 in prison, claimed that Trump is “the biggest threat to democracy” because he says “we’re going to eviscerate the Constitution” and that “he’s going to be a dictator on day one.” 

The New York Times, another former “news” organization, was a bit closer, but still not quite right, when they reported the “extraordinary moment “ when Trump “suggest[ed] the “termination” of the Constitution to overturn the 2020 election.”  It is also worth mentioning that Politico, which alleges to be a “fact checker,” and using the same safer word (“suggested”) as the New York Times, is shocked that Trump’s denial on Truth Social that he “suggested the termination of the Constitution.”

In fact, of course, Trump did no such thing but one must be able to read in the English language at the high school level to see this … a big ask these days.

The New York Times and Politico, apparently retaining some minimal grasp of the English language, are wise enough not to say that Trump “called for” the termination of the Constitution.  Although the cautious word “suggested” is a bit better than the others, Trump did not even “suggest” the termination of the Constitution.

If one attends to Trump’s exact words (quoted above by AP) one can verify that Trump said that the Constitution “allows for” the termination of the Constitution.  However, to say that the Constitution “allows for” something is not the same as calling for it or (sorry New York Times and Politico) “suggesting” it.

If, in a dispute with my neighbour about rearing children, I state that the laws of the land “allow” me to use physical punishment on my child, and the neighbour objects that this is not right, it would be entirely reasonable to reply, “I don’t even have a child and I would never do it.  I am just describing what the law allows.”

Trump was merely making a comment on his understanding of the Constitution.  He may be right about that or he may be wrong about that.  But he did not “call” to suspend the Constitution.

The DNC cannot, it seems, get anything about Trump right, starting with the absurd Trump-Russian Collusion hoax that was used to cheat the American people out of their rightful elected president.  Trump never said he grabs women by the p***y.  If one can read at the 7th grade level one can easily verify that he said that “stars, not himself,” do that.  He never said that Mexicans are rapists and drug traffickers.  A competent high school student could easily verify that he said that about the subset of the population that Mexico is “sending.”  He never told people to inject “bleach” to cure the Coronavirus.  He did not even use the word “bleach” and only “asked a question”, should that still be permitted in what remains of America.  Despite the DNC’s repeated claims that Trump did not condemn white supremacists, it can be easily verified, if anyone in the DNC can focus for a while, that he did this multiple times.   One can verify all of these facts here.  

The question arises why the DNC, especially alleged “journalists”, can never get anything right about Trump.  Part of the answer is that the DNC, including what passes for our “news” media, has what psychologists call “confirmation bias.”  As Glen Greenwald (not, putting it mildly, a right-wing wacko) puts it, the news media are now “an arm of the Democrat Party”.  As a consequence, they want to see Trump make stupid or incriminating remarks. They believe Trump is a racist so they see racism in his words even if it is not really there.  They see him as a dictator (because he actually disagrees with persons of their imagined greatness) and so they see authoritarianism in his words even if it is not there (their absurd claim that his “dictator on day one” joke is an admission he actually wants to be a dictator).  They see him as convicted of rape even if that is not true because they see him as that kind of person.  They want to see him in that way to help their own political agenda.

In doing so, they have done tremendous damage to the country by polarizing people and tremendous damage to their own now pathetic reputations.  The US now ranks last in 46 countries in trust in media.  Many Americans now believe that the media deliberately misleads them.  Not that any of them care.

  1. This article is much more than an opinion piece that takes Trump’s side. It heaps coals on the wicked distortions of language and logic used to malign Trump. The link in the article to another article by the author that appeared in thepostil.com in 2021 provides an overwhelmingly detailed and, yes, scholarly depiction of why so many statements about Trump’s purported contempt for women, Haitians, Mexicans, voters in Georgia, etc. are totally misconceived. The only point where I might disagree with the author is the one where Trump asserts the ease with which celebrities might grab p****. I think it is likely he was supporting the inference that he had himself engaged in that “easy practice.” Nevertheless, McDonough clearly and thoroughly demonstrates by compelling research and logic that Trump’s public statements have overwhelmingly been distorted in order to malign him.
