  1. Correct. The Constitution doesn't state that the POTUS has any "absolute rights" or powers, but Trump tweeted that he did.
  2. And he doesn't. But did you forget that this was the second post in the thread?
  3. How is sharing state secrets with Vlad Putin's operatives an absolute right? And Trump tweeting that has the absolute right to do so is just circular reasoning at 140 characters or less.
  4. Facts are only "immaterial" if you don't have any on your side.
  5. How am I derailing anything by insisting that "essentially unlimited" isn't absolute?
  6. Can Donald Trump Be Trusted With State Secrets? https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/16/opinion/trump-classified-information-russia.html?_r=0
  7. Trump is just as wrong to tweet that he has "absolute rights." And two wrongs don't make one right.
  8. Check your Constitution. No POTUS has "absolute" authority.
  9. As I previously posted: "As President I wanted to share with Russia (at an openly scheduled W.H. meeting) which I have the absolute right to do...." https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2017/05/16/donald-trump-russia-classified-the-washington-post/101740022/ Can you find "absolute rights" anywhere in the US Constitution?
  10. I doubt Trump's critics will declassify so many of this nation's secrets that no other country will share intel with us.
  11. No POTUS has absolute authority in a government with checks and balances.
  12. Trump's hubris will be his own undoing; hopefully he and his family doesn't take the rest of the country down with him.
  13. I saw no explanation of legal vs. absolute authority.
