How to help stop Trump right now
We are still a country governed by the rule of law, and if our independent judiciary issues stays and rulings against unconstitutional executive actions, the vast majority of government agents will comply – no matter how many Twitter tantrums the Phony King of America throws.
The ACLU is instrumental in this process, because they’re stepping in to stop illegal presidential actions in real time – a necessary supplement to the popular protests, legislative engagement, and political planning by Trump resistors.
(Seriously – Disney’s Prince John character is perfectly prescient:
He sits alone on the giant throne
Pretendin’ he’s the king
A little tyke who’s rather like
A puppet on a string
And he throws an angry tantrum
If he cannot have his way
And then he calls for Mom while he’s suckin’ his thumb
You see, he doesn’t want to play)
