President Trump fired his acting attorney general on Monday night, removing her as the nation’s top law enforcement officer after she defiantly refused to defend his executive order closing the nation’s borders to refugees and people from predominantly Muslim countries.In firing her, the Trump White House issued a statement that said that she betrayed the Justice Department by refusing to enforce the order. The statement also said (or at least implied) that in doing so, she's made it easier for terrorists to kill us all.
Too bad her oath reads like this:
I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.Her job was to support and defend the Constitution, not the fevered (and illegal) orders of a small-handed pussy grabber.
It took the Nixon Administration years to get this insane. It's taken Donald Trump less than two weeks.
Let's all take a deep breath and listen to David Tennant:
It's all gonna be okay. Trust me. I'm a doctor.For fuck's sake, let's hope so.
But it's up to us to make it ok - it's time to be positively rebellious and rebellious positive.
As long as we stand up for what we believe in, don't give into anger or violence, look out for the little guy, keep an eye on the big guys, refuse to keep our mouths shut and just generally try not to be dicks, every little thing is gonna be alright.
