The legislature DOES NOT work for the president.
This one might actually make my head explode.

Now might be a good time for Republican Congressman Ted Yoho to brush up on how our government is supposed to work:
YOHO: "[Nunes] answers to the president".
MELVIN: Does he? Or does he work for constituents?
YOHO: "Well, you do both." pic.twitter.com/rbeeBiqNFa

@kylegriffin1 I saw this live & I yelled at my TV screen.

@kylegriffin1 I saw that live. How f'ing awful

A member of Congress just said another member of Congress "answers to the president." Do I laugh or cry? https://t.co/TPM9TmGYZF

Well, to quote a notable congressman, “You do both.”

@kylegriffin1 a fundamental misunderstanding of congress' role.

@kylegriffin1 He does NOT work for the president. Jesus.

@kylegriffin1 No, that's not how this works. The president is not your boss. All of you are elected officials.

@kylegriffin1 He doesn't answer to the president though. These branches are separate for a reason. They are supposed to check executive power.

@kylegriffin1 Sounds like someone doesn't understand the job criteria or purpose. You can't be a check and balance if you're subservient to another branch
— Brian Ray (@slimray11) March 30, 2017
@kylegriffin1 Congress is a co-equal branch of government. Congressmen do not work for, or answer to, the President.
— JerseyLawyer (@TodayAgain1) March 30, 2017
@kylegriffin1 Seriously! I'd love to hear Yoho explain how Congressional checks + balances on Executive work, if they have to "answer to the President"!

How does a co-equal in government "answer to" the President exactly? Good grief. https://t.co/KD7m3YODlp
