At first glance, we thought this Jay Rosen person was Max Boot not only because of his absolutely ridiculous and slightly infuriating take on Trump and the Constitution but … he sorta looks like Boot without a hat, right?
Hey, if you guys spent as much time as we do reading tweets you’d lose your minds a little too.
Anywho, Jay’s tweet and take are serious humdingers.
"Our national security agencies and major newspapers cannot report that the sitting president, his party, and the outdated Constitution that undergirds their rule have become threats to liberal democracy in the United States." https://t.co/VkY0KznpaR

Trump and the outdated Constitution are threats to our liberal democracy.
From NY Mag:
Simply put, there is no way to reconcile Mueller’s findings with the idea that Congress should allow Donald Trump to continue being president. The most generous possible interpretation of the report is that our president is so pathologically narcissistic, he repeatedly undermined investigations into Russian election interference — even though they posed no legal threat to him — because anything that drew attention to the Kremlin’s influence campaign took some of the shine off his 2016 triumph. There is no credible argument for allowing a man who cares more about avoiding narcissistic injury than honoring the independence of federal law enforcement — or protecting the integrity of U.S. elections — to retain the powers of the presidency.
Don’t make that face, we didn’t write it.

Which civil rights protections in the Constitution do you think are outdated and need to be removed?
— Richard DeCamp (@richdecamp) April 25, 2019
The constitution is never outdated. You just don't like the results and want to change the rules to your liking.

Which is why we have the Constitution in the first place.
This is why we laugh at our professors after we graduate and realize how incredibly stupid they are.

That right there is some GOOD babbling, yessiree! ?
[Just last night I was out dating the Constitution, and it told me that we have nothing to fear but fear-mongers themselves]

JFC we get it. You don't like Trump. Give it a rest already.

Give it a rest already. True story.
My journalism professors would have smacked you across the face. Judging by your avatar, you would not have responded.
And we are a Constitutional Republic, professor. Not a Liberal Democracy.

If anything is outdated it's @NYMag

We feel like there’s a really good ‘Your mom’ joke here somewhere.
This shouldn't be a concern since we're not a democracy.
