  1. Article 2, section 4: The President, Vice President, and ALL civil Officers of the United States shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

  2. That's the thing: Trump runs his presidency AS THOUGH he has "powers that you wouldn't believe". This style of governance is usually known around the world as a "dictatorship".

  3. Seriously, there are people out there that are okay with our government being run by this kind of idiocy? No wonder the rest of the world is laughing at us right now.

  4. How can you be surprised that a person that speaks on a fifth grade level reads at a fifth grade level. That's why he loves the dumb and low educated, he feels like he's amongst his peers.

  5. Donald Trump: "I know how to fix (insert topic), because I know more than all the experts!"
    (cue: epic fail)
    Donald Trump: "Who knew that (insert topic) could be so complicated?"

  6. Trump has a weird mouth. For the word "two", he makes his mouth into a tiny o shape. He makes that O shape a lot when he speaks. Creepy.

  7. By going out of it's way to help Donald Trump get things right – entities like Disney are doing history a terrible wrong. Please, if he really wants to, let him fluff the constitution. Let him, for posterity, stick out like a sore thumb from all the other presidents. Let his robot waffle incoherently – it's truer to reality.

  8. seems rump like to yap about all the power he has mmm just what dictators like to do, this moron thinks he is a king, yea a king of toilets yea right rump you do have to flush them 15 times to get rid of the poop like you.

  9. I'm gonna have nightmares about that robot. I didn't think it was possible for Trump to be any creepier but I was WRONG!😳

  10. My nine year old grandson can read the Condtitution D. Chump can't. Biggest dummy ever. Thank you, Putin!! You really screwed this country up when you put this clown in office. He can't even spell ARTICLE 2….

  11. We ALL must vote this year. Our country cannot afford 4 more years of this moronic traitor..or his white shirt followers.

  12. Don't insult the parrot! Here's what we should do. We should require of every public office (elected or appointed) to take and pass the American history test that all immigrants must pass in order to become US citizens. Every office from the presidency all the way down to town alderman should be required to pass this test. I'm also shocked that at 27 members of congress only have a high school diploma. They've always said to know the true character of a person, give them power. Here is living proof that he needs to be removed from the WH with a SWAT team and into federal prison.

  13. Here's what article two actually says:

    Article II (Article 2 – Executive)
    Section 1

    1: The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows

    2: Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress: but no Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the United States, shall be appointed an Elector.

    3: The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate. The President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed; and if there be more than one who have such Majority, and have an equal Number of Votes, then the House of Representatives shall immediately chuse by Ballot one of them for President; and if no Person have a Majority, then from the five highest on the List the said House shall in like Manner chuse the President. But in chusing the President, the Votes shall be taken by States, the Representation from each State having one Vote; A quorum for this Purpose shall consist of a Member or Members from two thirds of the States, and a Majority of all the States shall be necessary to a Choice. In every Case, after the Choice of the President, the Person having the greatest Number of Votes of the Electors shall be the Vice President. But if there should remain two or more who have equal Votes, the Senate shall chuse from them by Ballot the Vice President.8

    4: The Congress may determine the Time of chusing the Electors, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States.

    5: No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    6: In Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office,9 the Same shall devolve on the VicePresident, and the Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President, declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly, until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected.

    7: The President shall, at stated Times, receive for his Services, a Compensation, which shall neither be encreased nor diminished during the Period for which he shall have been elected, and he shall not receive within that Period any other Emolument from the United States, or any of them.

    8: Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    Section 2

    1: The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

    2: He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

    3: The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

    Section 3

    He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

    Section 4

    The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

    Nowhere in there does it say anything about near unlimited power nor "powers you wouldn't believe", very much the opposite in fact.

    Pay particular attention to what Section 1, subsection 6, and also section 4 say.

    Trumpers, pay attention! I know you hate school, but it's homework time.

  14. Unless you're a constitutional scholar I doubt if any one has read the thing through and through, People tend to only know the parts that affect them, and don't care about the rest . Or they think they know the rest but once they start quoting they're quickly shown to not understand it at all.

  15. "Then in article two I have the right to do whatever I want, but I don't even talk about that."

    Apophasis (/əˈpɒfəsɪs/; Greek: ἀπόφασις from ἀπόφημι apophemi,[1] "to say no")[2] is a rhetorical device wherein the speaker or writer brings up a subject by either denying it, or denying that it should be brought up.[3] Accordingly, it can be seen as a rhetorical relative of irony.

  16. This was the worst speech given by any President! It was equivalent to watching a 4-year old read from a book with big words. Shameful, someone help him with history and teach him to read!

  17. It cracked me up when he said Article II gives the President "powers that you wouldn't believe" … as if the Constitution had just been discovered and hardly anybody knew what was in it!

  18. Not defending Trump but I think he has suffered at least a couple of TIA's (mini strokes),think about his age and his diet,lack of exercise. I believe he had another one when he made that unscheduled visit to the hospital in November, it would explain a lot and why he has a hard time saying simple words at times, is irrational and angers so easily. They are hiding this because they know it would definitely take him out of office as unfit to serve.

  19. He represents the  r e p u b l i c a n s  and is really much smarter then most republicans , that's why they all look up to him , they don't know any better.

  20. Have more vocabulary a parrot ( cacatua) next to this corrupt traitor… is disgusting and pathetic👂this child " some day you read an article 2 " blablabla…

  21. You weak cowards pretending that The US isn't the admiration of the world with the only exceptions being leftis wussies and terrorists. I dont know where you find failure. Not to mention since the first month Trump was elect Ive went from 60k per year to 180k this year. I guess you would have to apply yourself to know that. TRUMP 20/20

  23. Article 2- Section 1 – clause1- is a power given to enable the discharging of duties and responsibilities within article 2. It’s sort of both. It puts the chief executive in charge of those who enforce the laws for example but at the same time, the executive power; encompasses a power with which to discharge those duties and responsibilities of the chief executive. Clause 1 does not exist separately in a vacuum.

    Clause 2 – Is actually a prohibition on the President by prohibiting him from being an elector while in office.

    Clause 4 – actually gives power to congress in choosing the day which electors cast their votes.

    Clause 5 – Actually makes Trump’s latest assertion look completely ridiculous in that it limits who can be President on the count of birthright citizenship, age and residency. If Trump now thinks the President has unlimited powers and can do whatever he wants then why did ridiculously arrogant and incompetent citizen Trump spend years trying to get Obama removed from office on the bases of the birthright citizenship requirement which would require the removal from office of any President that did not meet the requirements set forth in clause 5?

    This is just a sample of how silly Trump’s comments are. Section 1-Clause5 alone says it all. But it’s amusing that Trump has the attitude he does in view of Section 4. I wonder if it has clicked for him yet.

  24. Trump is asked: if you could speak any language fluently, what would it be? Trump replies: thats EZ, English ha ha ha.

  25. The saddest part is the cowards of the republican-GOP-trump-Putin CULT in congress standing by this despicable con-man in the White House. Proving once again the republican cult agenda is more important than the United States of America. The GOP CULT’s real loyalty is not to the constitution but to gerrymandering so we have a pretend Democratic Republic, passing the courts so religions control decisions, the NRA, controlling the vote in trump districts & keeping our trickle down economics in place no matter how often it fails. A trickle down economy only works with a benevolent monarchy or dictatorship, the rich then throws a few more crumbs out & the easily hoodwinked GOP CULT voter gets all excited. Having an under educated, easily fooled population also help & no one is better at propaganda than Fox News …. looks like our fair & honorable elections our democracy is doomed

  26. I’ve been saying this for years now: he is functionally illiterate. Yes, he can technically read simple words. Sometimes he can even say high school level words…but he doesn’t understand what it means. He literally is incapable of grasping the message of written English, hence his dislike of teleprompters and any White House communication unless it is one page with lots of pictures and seeded liberally with the word “Trump”.

    Why doesn’t anybody ask, “And which section of Article two claims the president has unlimited power?” or “So where can one find Article Two?” or, and this is what I would like to know, “Who in God’s name told you that Article Two grants kinglet powers, because there is no way you came up with that by yourself?”

    Stephen Miller, maybe? Hannity?
