    Democrats have been complaining about Trump and his “tweets” potentially influencing judicial decisions and court cases; BUT Democrats love court intervention and executive influence over the courts when it benefits their needs

    FDR, consistently a favorite polling president among Democrats, is the closest president we ever had to a dictator and wielded one of the strongest authoritarian executive branches in the history of our nation.

    Let’s not even talk about FDR’s internment of Japanese Americans and the courts fear of this president to rule that it was a violation of equal protection.

    Let’s just talk about FDR’s new deal. After the court repeatedly found that FDR’s new deal was unconstitutional and a huge overreach of executive power, FDR threatened to pack the courts. He openly tried to introduce judges that will pass his policy to the court by expanding the number of justices. The Court in fear of this relented, and gave the federal government an absurd amount of power in the expansion of the commerce clause interpretation.

    After FDR tried to introduce law to pack the courts, the Supreme Court did a 180 and interpreted the commerce clause to allow the new deal.

    FDR was a dictator and Democrats loved him for it. All the branches feared FDR and after his death term limits were imposed immediately.

    Democrats actually really love dictators and the executive to have power over the judicial branch, as long as it suits their needs.

    So that is the sort of thing folks with a proclivity towards authoritarianism are telling themselves these days? You're beginning to frighten me. Perhaps you'd be happier living under real authoritarian rule somewhere. I can think of a few excellent destinations.

    Do you disavow FDR because he was a dictator pretty much? Or do you worship him like most Democrats?

    why not make a argument for how FDR wasn’t the closest thing to a dictator we had? O wait, you can’t because he pretty much was.

    I posit, tRUMP isn't a strong president.
    Very weak in fact. Has his approval ever broached 50%? Maybe 1 time?

    But yes, a strong president is what most everyone wants.

    You are confused on the difference between being strong, and being scum.

    Trump is scum. He is unworthy of holding office. Someone like Reagan was strong but not scum.

    Does that help clear up the confusion for you?

    Horse pucky.

    Liberals want a president who follows the rule of law like the rest of us; someone who is decent and civil.

    Trump's authoritarian cult followers are insecure and seem to have a need to think everyone is secretely just like them. We aren't.

    Trump is most definitely a tyrant. In fact, he's the worst tyrant ever. No tyrant has ever cut taxes and government regulation so much and disempowered their government so much. Trump is such a terrible tyrant that we should reelect him.

    Trump is most definitely a racist. In fact, he's the worst racist ever. No racist has ever been of so much benefit to those not of his preferred race than President Trump. Trump is such a terrible racist that we should reelect him.

    Trump is most definitely a war monger. In fact, he's the worst war monger ever. No war monger has ever forgone so many, many opportunities to wage war against our avowed enemies than President Trump. Trump is such a terrible war monger that we should reelect him.

    Trump is most definitely a robber baron. In fact, he is the worst robber baron ever. No robber baron has ever been of so much benefit to those he is supposed to be robbing than President Trump. Trump is such a terrible robber baron that we should reelect him.

    Trump is not only everything his opponents say he is; he is also the very worst one of each and every one of those things.
