Trump considering pulling US out of Constitution

New Yorker:

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Calling it “maybe the worst deal ever,” Donald J. Trump said on Wednesday that he is considering pulling the United States out of the United States Constitution.

“I’ve seen a lot of bad deals in my life, but this Constitution is a total mess,” he said. “We need to tear it up and start over.”

Trump was scathing in his remarks about the two-hundred-and-twenty-nine-year-old document, singling out for special scorn its insistence on three branches of government. “The branches thing is maybe the worst part of this deal,” he said. “The first thing we do when we pull out of the Constitution is get rid of two of those branches.”

Vowing to replace the Constitution with “a new, much, much better Constitution,” he acknowledged that there might be some elements of the original document worth salvaging. “We’re going to keep the Second Amendment,” he said, “and definitely the Fifth.”

          It may have been repeated, as the orginal was long before I was born. My mother was a child when it began. All I know of it is the title.

    Except that Trump appoints strict Constitutionalist judges much to Democrat’s dismay.
    David is correct and Trump is somewhat reversing the trend so the joke is actually on the Progressives.

      I think that his chances of getting rid of the Constitution are minimal, especially the right to carry guns at all times no matter how loony you are which seems to be how that article has been interpreted.
