Trump Says The 'Phony' Constitution 'Doesn't Matter' Because He's 'Rich' | MSNBC 1


In a stunning reversal, Trump has decided not to host the global summit at his Florida property, after pushback from Democrats and Republicans who found the decision to be in violation of the emoluments clause. Richard Painter, former chief White House ethics lawyer, believes Trump’s behavior is ‘unconstitutional,’ and argues his ‘understanding of the emoluments clause is wrong.’ Aired on 10/21/19.

      You’re stupider than a glass of milk spilled on the floor.

    • @Strait Up Productions, Port Angeles Well, that is original, at least. An ignoramus comment that made no sense whatsoever, but it is uniquely stupid and original.

  2. The funny thing is that t’rump supporters still give this guy a pass when in reality he hates poor people who can’t afford his club. 😆😅

    • @Doug Dimmadome, Owner of the Dimmsdale Dimmadome ok I guess you can’t read both sides are stupid the leftist are a bunch of feminist that hate men and need to get laid and the right think Trump is the best thing that happened to this country I stand by my statement 😂😂😂😂🖕🖕

    • @David Hendrick he just likes their votes. He was talking about the arenas has he paid for any of them?

    • In a free world people can go from poor to rich! And thus be able to afford the golf club of their choice .

    • @N STAR Not the point of the story.

  3. The constitution was written to protect us from phony presidents like Trump who was elected by the intellectually barren.

    • @Black yes I think when the founding fathers wrote the right to bear arms they were thinking of pistols with a single musket ball. Not AK 47’s

    • If they were reproductively barren the future would be bright.

    • @David M- I don’t live in my old fouled up country. I live in yours. So it IS my business.
      I prefer coffee.

    • @Jonny Sevent That sounds confusing. No matter where you are it’s fouled up in your opinion. Seems you’re your own problem. Most of the sane Americans know Trump is the best president yet Mr. Bean.

  4. LOL, WHO is above THE America constitution???
    LOL, WHO is above THE America LAWS???

    America is showing under this administration how they’re protecting criminals. LOL

    How would Trump know if the Constitution is phony or not, he’s never read it…

    • John De Prendergast | October 22, 2019 at 9:39 AM | Reply

      of course he hasn’t…..he can’t read

    • Trump’s AG travelling the world looking for any dirt on the Democrats. I thought the AG was supposed to look after domestic issues ?? Barr must have a unique job description !!

    • @D SP So did all of the republican (or Russian) congressmen who took that same oath. Protect and defend the Constitution, not the party or the man. We are being failed by our supposed elected leaders.

  6. OH come on!
    Isn’t this enough proof that Trump should be removed at once?
    He hasn’t even “read” the Constitution for crying out loud!

    • @Eli C.J. Trump reads. He reads two nouns, TRUMP and I. He also reads two pronouns, me and mine.

      Yet he’s the president and you’re more confused than a 4 year old transsexual victim.

    • @Strait Up Productions, Port Angeles : 

      Yeah ! Have to agree ! …. no-one saw this coming, but here we are !

      We have a 4 year old transsexual victim that somehow became President.

    He’s trying so hard to be a tyrant like his boss, Putin. I don’t know why a lot of people are supporting even though he’s trying so hard to undermine the constitution and even their own basic rights.

    • You all are idiots who only speak in your own liberal bubble. Trumps helped make thousands of jobs for working class americans as well as gave them a huge tax break. Hes brought back soldiers obama was just leaving to die over seas. Hes building a wall requiring those crossing the boarder to do it legally. Hes asking foreign governments to give him the facts of incidents they were part of during a PREVIOUS election. Hes proven hes broken no laws time and time again and you can’t accept the fact he isnt the monster your leaders are

    • Even the trolls have given up on Trump. Come to think of it, I’m beginning to miss toothless, brainwashed, unwashed, and that guy whose real name is Igor.

  8. ORANGE IMBECILE: I could have made a lot of money and paid NO TAXES!!!! Why did I get into this??? I’m now TRYING to get impeached, and no one listens!!!!

    Running a business while holding an office…keep talking dipstick!

  10. If you’re rich then prove it via tax returns

  11. Trump is in no position to call the constitution clauses “phony” because he clearu admitted that he is a business owner, running the resort properties and bragging proudly about the property was clearly his super-ego talking. He is showing his true “phony and illegitimate” president to the world.

  12. He swore to protect the Constitution from Enemies, Foreign and DOMESTIC.Thousands have fought and died to protect the Constitution of the USA.

  13. This lack of respect for the Constitution…is what we’ve been saying for what feels like forever!

  14. It’s always great and uplifting to listen to Richard Painter he is so intelligent honest and direct .

  15. They need to stop beating around the bush and fire him.

  16. As far as Trump is concerned, Americans can wipe their butts with the Constitution!

  17. He didnt complain when it and the electoral college gave him his position

    • Of course not!!😒… But, back in 2012… He Tweeted that… “The Electoral College is a DISASTER”!! And it needed to be done away with!!…

      Oh how I wish now… It had of been!!! Then we wouldn’t have this Embarrassing Debacle in.. What’s now Known as the “Fright House”!!!😜😝😣😓… UUUGGGHHH!!!😒😞😣

    • Thats because unpaid parking tickets bought his votes.

    • The EC is the only tool that the GOP has left to manipulate and steal the presidency from the American people. A Republican hasn’t won the popular vote in 3 decades. The GOP is dead and we need to bury it for good. No more EC, no more republican criminals in the White House like Nixon, Reagan, Bush Jr and Trump.

      Putin gave him his position, he didn’t get it honestly

  18. Trump is not in the hospitality business. He is THE lunatic hospital business.

      @rod long now remove Donald Trump and insert Obama in this narrative. How do you feel now? What do you have to say?

    • @rod long You even question why??

    • @rod long you are just repeating what trump CLAIMS. He’s making plenty of money by having foreign governments booking blocks of rooms to curry favor with him to get what they want. Emoluments violation by the way to use his office for personal financial gain. Not to mention conflicts of interest here and abroad, such as his twin towers in turkey.

  19. All of Donald Trump’s supporters need to understand that he just said that their 2nd Amendment right to have guns is based on a phony document.

  20. Every time Trump opens his mouth, it’s the sound of diarrhoea.
