Unclear on the Concept: Lou Dobbs’ Constitution

Right Wing Watch quotes Lou Dobbs educating Ed Rollins (both of FOX Business) on the constitution:

LOU DOBBS (HOST): It’s an obvious, overt attempt on the part of the special counsel to subvert the president of the United States. This is —

ED ROLLINS: But again —

DOBBS: it’s that simple. By the way, let me add to that. It is also clear that Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are part of the conspiracy and the coordinated attack on this presidency because they say nothing. They stand silent in the face of a supra constitutional authority that is usurping the powers of the presidency.

So here’s a few questions for you, Dobbs: Has the special counsel nominated anyone to the cabinet? The federal judiciary? Has Mueller ordered the Joint Chiefs to send troops into combat? vetoed any bills passed by congress?

Please, tell me Mr. Dobbs: what powers of the presidency have been usurped? Because it’s looking an awful lot like the only constitutional powers that have been usurped are those listed in constitution of the FOXified States of America.

I swear I know more about the constitution of Australia than Dobbs knows about the constitution of the USA.

    I’d like to see some evidence that any of those clowns actually care a jot, tittle, or pip about the constitution. Was Dobbs complaining about the systematic demolition of the 4th amendment, or southern foot-dragging on the 15th?

    Is ignoring the constitution supra-constitutional power, or is it just obstructionism?

    Well, I’ll be …. Australia really does have a document called the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Australia thought the wiki says it is only one of several documents making up the actual constitution. Sounds familiar.

    Why would anyone expect a Fox News presenter to have any actual knowledge of the US constitution? It might mean reading it; fantasy and lies are easier.
