Editorial: GOP responds to Pelosi attack with cruel, baseless jokes. It’s shameful.
The Washington Free Beacon reported last week that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) accused President Trump of not paying federal taxes because he was “living in a foreign country.”
Pelosi’s baseless and ridiculous attacks on Trump came after a number of Democrats accused Trump of accepting millions of dollars in payments for his Trump Organization while he was running for president. The Democrats are just trying to deflect attention from their own role in the payments scandal.
As with any controversy, the Democrats are using the Trump-Russia allegations to smear the president. They’re trying to divert attention from the payments scandal, by bringing up a debunked rumor about Trump spending $20,000 on Russian prostitutes.
This kind of nonsense shows that the Democrats in Congress are just using their political power whenever they have the opportunity. As long as Democrats are in power, the truth will never come out.
But that won’t stop members of Congress from repeating the same lies that the media peddled for decades, such as that the moon landing was faked or that AIDS was a hoax.
This kind of behavior is a clear violation of the founding principles that our republic was founded on.
The Framers of our Constitution recognized the need for a checks and balances system to make sure no one abuse their power and the government was meant to serve the people, not to serve the president or any political party.
The Founders were against a strong executive and a unchecked Congress and tried to balance the power between the two.
A strong executive is a powerful check on the power and authority of politicians.
A powerful executive allows lawmakers to pass their agenda with a single stroke of a pen. The president can put his signature on a piece of legislation without needing to pass it in the House and Senate, where a majority of members are required to consider the bill.
The president can also veto legislation.
The president can choose not to sign a bill he don’t like, which will become law without his signature.
